Where To Begin

Whether you’ve discovered the first spores or uncovered a wall of existing growth, mold damage is scary for any homeowner. Often the first sign of mold is a musty smell you can’t seem to clear. If your home is particularly humid, that may also create a moist environment leading to mold growth. If you see mold or suspect that it is present, you should call a professional immediately. Mold spreads through spores, which become airborne when growth is disturbed. We’ve been in the business of mold remediation for over 12 years and we are fully licensed, certified, and bonded. At Bright Restoration, no mold is too severe for us to take on. We’ve seen it all before, and we’ll be able to help you restore your home quickly and safely.

Your Safety Is Our #1 Priority!

Your safety is our top priority at every stage in the mold remediation process. Before you do anything else, the first step is to determine if it’s safe for you to remain in your home. Mold can weaken your floors, walls, ceiling, which means that structural issues could be a cause for concern. Mold can cause health problems long before you see the visible signs of its presence. If you’ve been experiencing allergy like symptoms, sore throats, headaches or fatigue, they could be signs of long term mold exposure. Due to the speed of mold growth, it can appear in as little as 48 hours if you have untreated water damage. For now, the best thing you can do is avoid disturbing the mold growth until you can reach mold remediation professionals. Stay away from the affected rooms in your home and make note of areas where you’re noticing a strong, musty scent.

If it is safe to remain in your home, you may want to review some of the common risks and hazards of mold exposure. It’s important to take care of the health of your family and react quickly to potential problems.

Frequently Asked Questions

Don’t be confused by people who use the terms mold removal and mold remediation interchangeably. There is a difference between mold removal and mold remediation.  Imagine if you had an infection. While a pain reliever might temporarily alleviate your pain, you won’t really begin to combat the infection until your doctor prescribes you with antibiotics. Similarly, scrubbing a surface area of mold may remove the mold from your wall temporarily, but it may also cause much more damage to you and also to your home. In true mold remediation, highly trained specialists will return the mold levels in your home to safety, as well as solve the moisture problem that was causing the mold growth in the first place. Make sure the restoration company you hire is accredited by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (or the IICRC), an internationally recognized organization responsible for providing certification to all mold specialists.

While we never advise that you handle cases of mold remediation yourself, there are certain situations where it may be safe. If the mold seems to be located on tile or grout (for example, on shower tiles), it is generally safe to handle it yourself using the correct safety precautions. On the other hand, if you can see mold on your walls, we advise you to call a professional restoration company. Mold on porous surfaces such as walls, hardwood floors, ceilings, indicate a good chance of mold growth behind the walls.  Mold gives us a signal that the area is retaining moisture. In order to perform proper mold remediation to your walls or ceilings, you must first treat the source of the moisture so that the problem does not reoccur. It’s important that you know the difference between DIY and professional mold remediation circumstances. Also, if you’ve previously tried to clean mold in your home but have experienced a resurgence of growth, it’s definitely time to call a professional restoration company.

Mold remediation costs will vary from project to project. Each case is unique and requires a customized plan for successful mold remediation. Having said that, the general range is between $2,000 to $7,000, and is determined by the scope of the infestation, the extent of labor and the cost of materials used in restoration.
