Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

MOLD.  Just say the word and you might see the panic set in on some people's faces.  Our team at SERVPRO of Augusta/Waterville recognizes the challenge that mold brings to homeowners and business owners and that's why we use a multi-faceted approach to mitigating mold.  We begin by addressing the problem that caused the mold--if we don't address the cause, the problem will be persistent.  After the problem is corrected we contain the area to keep the mold localized and we begin to process the air with our specialized equipment like air scrubbers with HEPA filters and vacuums with HEPA filters to remove any airborne mold spores.  We also begin the removal of affected materials and aggressive cleaning of material that cannot be removed.  Once we have removed the affected material and cleaned the remaining structure, we treat the areas with antimicrobial and antifungal products to eliminate mold colonies and to prevent new colonies from forming.  Our crew is licensed with the State of Maine to apply these products, having gone through extensive training in order to use them. 



There is a process to follow to properly mitigate mold and the crew at SERVPRO of Augusta/Waterville is well-trained in this process.  If you see something that looks like mold in your home or business, call the highly trained crew at our locally-owned office at 207-622-7166.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.
