Our specialty at SERVPRO is Remediation and Restoration. What's the difference between the two?

RemediationThe act of stopping or reversing environmental damage.

Restoration: To return something to its former condition. 

How does mold play into situation?

Mold is most likely to grow where there is moisture and humidity. That means, after you've suffered a water damage the chance of mold growth is highly likely. Mold may begin to grow and spread in as little as 40hrs after a water damage.

Is mold remediated or restored? 

Mold is remediated. The first step is to clear out any traces of the water damage if one occurred. Next, a containment will be set up so mold growth is contained. After that, a cleansing of the air must take place. Various air units will be placed to filter the air and mold spores that might be present throughout. Lastly all mold affected materials will be removed.

Don't let the media scare you. The mold removal process should only be done by professionals. Call SERVPRO of Downey with any questions: (562) 392-3007
