When first encountering mold, one can’t help themselves but feel anxious about dealing with it. It can be problematic, but not unsolvable and nearly not as difficult to handle in a home environment.
Should you have an encounter with any kid of mold on your property this is what you need to do, follow these simple steps and you will be just fine.
Getting Started on Mold Removal
When fungi first starts cultivating on a surface, it’s quite difficult to spot, so don’t surprised if it shows out of nowhere. It can take as little as 24 hours for proper fungal growth to appear, depending on the conditions.
The most common place in a property where fungi can be found is the basement. It loves damp cardboard, the back of furniture and dark, musty corners. The reason behind it is that it’s actually quite frail in its initial stages of development and needs quite a lot of help from its environment.
When mold is found in any sort of property or circumstance, immediate action is necessary. It’s essential that the mold type is determined which can happen through air analysis, like our Indoor Air Quality Test.
It’s not recommended that it be touched lest it releases spores into the air, which can get on your. A close encounter with fungi can result in an acute allergic reaction to skin, lungs and upper pathways.
Contacting Professionals Would Solve the Problem Quickly
Professional mold removal services like GCD Restoration are fully equipped to handle such scenarios. Even if the mold infestation is small and seemingly insignificant, quick reaction is paramount lest the mold spreads to other parts of the property.
Its spores are light and travel great distances with a single gust of air, so if it gets in your HVAC system it might fully infect your entire property. You don’t want it getting up there, because it will take quite a lot of effort to fully de-mold your property – this is easy to avoid.

Mold Can Be Hard to Get Rid Of
Yes, it’s true. Mold can be hard to get rid of if the infestation has not been noticed soon enough. This is due to the very resilient nature of the spores, which, while not being able to cultivate, will stay dormant for a prolonged period of time and activate once the proper conditions are met.
If a cleaning company does not do a preliminary air test and one after the removal, it cannot guarantee the full eradication of airborne spores.
This is why you should use a trusted Mold and Mildew Removal company like GCD Restoration. We take extra care when handling delicate situations such as large mold infestations – this how we guarantee a full, complete, absolute destruction of any mold spores.
The mold removal procedure itself
If the size of the infestation is small, we seal the environment completely around it. It prevents spores from spreading around the property and makes our jobs easier.
Then we use a specific combination of biodegradable solutions which kill mold in all of its stages of growth. Then the residue is removed from the surfaces and if it’s required may perform some restoration on the particular segment of the property as a part of our Water Damage Restoration.
After the air quality analysis is retrieved from the laboratory, we use the appropriate solutions to deal with that particular strain of mold. It’s important to handle it carefully and appropriately depending on the strain and its level of toxicity.
Everything that has been affected like furniture, wall papers, floor boards and particle board is discarded, if it’s impossible to save. It’s good to say that not everything is hopeless and most of the time we will be able to restore it to its former glory.
Why calling us early is important?
GCD Restoration works with a wide range of solutions which fit the specificity for your mold problem. However, it’s vital to do it soon enough before the infestation has spread throughout the property, otherwise it would be difficult to manage, not impossible, but difficult.
