WATER & MOLD RESTORATION
YOUR PREMIER LOCAL MOLD DAMAGE REMEDIATION COMPANY
Mold and mildew microorganisms are not only present in nature, but they are also often found in households and workplaces. In small quantities, these molds are usually not harmful, however when spores are present in large quantities, they are a health hazard, potentially causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. If you find or suspect mold or mildew growth in your home or business, it’s best to take care of the problem immediately.
National Restoration offers a professional mold removal service for such problems. Our team of mold removal specialists are fully certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the American Council for Accredited Certification (ACAC).
When you call National Restoration, we will schedule a Remediation Supervisor to visit your property and conduct a thorough inspection. If the supervisor determines that there is a need for further testing, we will recommend a third party industrial hygienist (IH). We will always recommend a third party as it is a “conflict of interest” to have a remediation company also do the testing. Testing can be performed by a remediation company to identify levels, however the industrial hygienist should develop the necessary protocol (steps to remove mold) to perform the remediation.
We work with some of the most renown expert Industrial Hygienists in the business. An industrial hygienist will determine the levels of fungi growth in your property and prepare a “Protocol” for the remediation procedures.
Once the remediation is complete and the property is cleared National Restoration can rebuild your property and return it to pre-loss condition.

WHAT CAUSES MOLD TO GROW
In order to begin growing, mold requires three things: spores, moisture and an organic food source. All fungi produce spores in order to reproduce, and since fungi (molds, yeasts) have been around for millions of years, there are always mold spores floating around in the air – indoor and outdoor, regardless of efforts to be rid of them. Mold spores can never be eradicated in their entirety from any area, and since they’re microscopic, they can travel anywhere with very little support from their environment. Like dust, mold spores are all around us. With this in mind, your best chance of prohibiting mold growth is through the control of moisture.
Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
WHERE CAN MOLD GROW?
Fungi can grow on anything that’s living or was once living. When mold spores find a source of moisture they absorb as much of it as they can, swell to many times their original size, and begin to sprout root structures. Given enough moisture and time, mold can eat away at a house until it’s no longer structurally sound. Mold can grow in nearly any environment. Some molds can withstand extreme heat and cold, and though most molds grow best in humid climate, some molds, known as dry rot, can grow well in low humidity. Mold can even grow inside human beings and animals. Airborne toxic mold spores can affect the immune system, nervous system, liver, kidneys, blood and cause brain damage
