If you’ve discovered mold, or are concerned that a slow leak may have allowed it to grow behind a wall or other unseen area, we find the mold, treat it, and do a complete water damage remediation. We put the highest value on open communication and customer service and document the entire mold removal process.

Mold removal protects the health of your family or employees, preserves the structural integrity of your property, and improves the musty, damp smell associated with mold. And we help you get to the root cause of the issue, so the problem is not repeated. Happily. Even after.

  • If you’ve just discovered mold in your home or business, or experienced a water event, so you might be wondering what to do next. Mold only needs two or three days to start growing after a flood or other damaging water event. To avoid having a mold problem caused by a water event, check out these water recovery tips and arrange to have the water removed within 48 hours, if possible.

  • If you’ve just discovered mold or suspect you have some in a hidden place – under a floor, above a ceiling, behind a wall – you need to have it inspected right away by a licensed and certified mold removal professional like Rainbow Restoration.

    Mold is usually caused by a slow leak plumbing failure, too-humid indoor air, or a flood that was not professionally remediated.

  • Steps to take as soon as you detect mold:

    • Cleaning with bleach and water, or other household disinfectants will not kill mold. Try to keep yourself, children, employees and others out of the affected area.
    • Attempting to dry the area with a fan might disturb the spores and spread them to a new area.
    • If the mold is contained to a room with a door, keep the door closed.
    • Call a locally based professional mold removal service, such as Rainbow Restoration. Make an appointment with Rainbow Restoration (available 24/7, 365 days a year).
    • You may wish to notify your insurance company. Many homeowner’s insurance policies cover mold removal, and many policies require you to report your issue “as soon as reasonably possible.”

Health Risks of Mold

Due to the health risks associated with mold exposure, it is best to have mold remediation conducted as soon as possible. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, according to both the EPA and CDC all molds have the potential to cause health issues such as:

  • Headaches
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Persistent cough or cold symptoms
  • Burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or lungs
  • Asthma attacks
  • Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
  • Skin irritation
  • Allergic reactions
  • Opportunistic infections in immune-compromised individuals

About 50 to 100 common types of indoor mold have the potential to create health problems.

  • Mold remediation consists of determining the mold’s location and scope, identifying the type of mold, and then safely and completely killing the mold. In a small number of cases where moisture has caused structural rot, it is necessary to tear-out moldy areas and repair/ reconstruct.

    There are multiple approaches to mold remediation, and a Rainbow professional will work with you to decide on the best approach, depending on variables such as:

    • the cause of the mold
    • the scope of the mold
    • the type of mold
    • the condition of the surface affected – drywall, wood, cinder block, cement, etc.

    Rainbow’s expert mold remediation includes:

    • Assessment. A Rainbow Restoration contractor will come into your home to identify moldy areas as well as the source of the problem. The contractor will then formulate a mold remediation plan.
    • Containment. The source of the moisture problem is addressed and the affected area is closed off to avoid contaminating the rest of your home with mold spores stirred up during the removal process.
    • Filtration. HEPA filters will be used to clean the air of mold spores and other particles. The Rainbow Restoration specialist will also wear goggles and masks to lessen any exposure to airborne contaminants.
    • Removal. Building materials and personal belongings in your home can be affected. Since mold is a living organism and deeply ingrains itself into materials to survive, it is best to dispose of anything porous. The safest and most effective way to ensure mold doesn’t return is to remove affected material. Nonporous materials can be cleaned with antimicrobial cleaners and sealants may be used to make treated areas more resistant to water and mold. You may need to have your heating and air conditioning systems professionally cleaned as well.
    • Drying. It is imperative that cleaned and repaired items remain thoroughly dry. Remember, excessive moisture is how the issue started. As a result, your Rainbow Restoration mold remediation specialist will likely cover moisture management strategies to ensure your home doesn’t encounter future issues.
    • Repair. The reconstruction process will begin after all mold-contaminated materials are removed. Clean, mold-free materials will replace what was previously contaminated.
    • Testing. Following remediation, we search for any signs of recurrent water damage, moldy odors or visible mold to ensure the cleanup has been complete.

    Common Mold and Mold-Causing Scenarios

    At Rainbow we’ve seen it all, and fixed every kind of mold problem imaginable. Here are the most common causes of mold at homes and businesses:

    • Slow leaks in plumbing pipes or appliances (dishwasher, toilet, garbage disposal), that are not noticed right away or visible to the home or business owner.
    • Rooms or unseen, often dark areas where humidity is too high and damp air is trapped for an extended period of time (crawl spaces, basements, attics).
    • Flooding events where water damage remediation work does not begin inside 48-72 hours.
    • Cracks in exterior walls that allow water to seep into frame of home or business.
    • Roof leaks, leaks through damaged exterior siding.
