Covina, CA Mold Damage Remediation

When it comes to mold remediation in Covina, California, the winter months can increase rainfall and moisture content. Not only can flooding in structures ultimately facilitate mold and microbial growths, but persistently damp environments can also promote these conditions. With nearly 50,000 residents and bustling commercial areas for manufacturing and retail, such as the Plaza West Covina and the Covina Square Shopping Center, the presence of mold could impact hundreds.

Mold Inspection and Remediation Services for the Covina, CA Area

While the development of mold in your home could be devastating, microbial threats in Covina Valley Unified School District properties and other institutions like Northview High School and North-West College require an urgent response from our experienced remediation professionals. Removing active colonization falls to several practical strategies based on the severity of the microbial threat and the material affected, including antimicrobial products, abrasive cleaning, sanding, soda blasting, and controlled demolition. See our mold remediation page for details. 

Trusted Mold Removal for Covina Property Owners

Mold growth can often force properties to close their doors to allow for thorough remediation to take place. With how health-hazardous these organisms can be, properties can benefit from repairs and reconstruction that eliminate penetration points for moisture and floodwater. Mold remediation can resolve the active threat, but our building trade professionals can prevent recurrences by reconstructing damaged exterior walls, installing permanent fixtures for dehumidification, and waterproofing the structure better.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return. 
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (626) 387-4111

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.

Step 3: Mold Containment

Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Covina, CA home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
