Mold Remediation

Mold growth and damage is not always so obvious – in fact, it’s hardly ever obvious initially, growing behind walls and in hard-to-reach places. Mold can flourish discreetly in hidden or unthought of corners of a building, such as ductwork, crawlspaces, filters, etc. Many people assume that mold is a little to nonexistent occurrence in high and dry Western Colorado, but that’s not the case. Any area that is away from the sun and is damp and warm is a potential growth site for mold. Left untreated, mold can negatively affect health, leading to respiratory problems, exacerbating allergy symptoms and asthma, and can cause headaches and fatigue.

Don’t be fooled: mold can still grow in Grand Junction’s desert climate. So, if you discover or suspect mold at your residence or business, and need mold remediation in Grand Junction, give Mesa Restoration a call. Don’t risk or further endanger the health of yourself, your family, or employees. We’ll get the mold out and repair any mold related damage.

Mold Removal Process

If you suspect or see mold at your residence or business, give us a call. Our mold removal

process entails:

  1. Conducting an inspection of an affected dwelling or area, and identifying the areas of potential mold growth.
  2. Enacting a containment procedure to prevent further spreading of mold. Use of negative air in the contained space to catch microscopic spores in the air. This ensures that microscopic mold spores do not spread to the rest of your property. Use of HEPA vacs and demolition to remove mold-contaminated areas.
  3. Application of antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to seal off moisture from ever returning to previously mold-infested spaces.
  4. Restoration of walls, floors, drywall, etc. damaged or removed in the mold remediation process.

Mold Prevention Tips

Address Spills or Wet Spots Immediately

Mold requires moisture to grow, so if any spills or leaks occur at your property, soak them up right away. The longer a wet spot is untreated, the greater likelihood for mold growth. You can also contact us for water damage restoration if there is any sizeable amount of water leak.

Call a Professional for Water Leaks

The EPA recommends keeping indoor humidity between under 60%, not only for a comfortable environment, but to help prevent mold growth, which thrives on moisture. This is great news for Western Colorado, where humidity is typically 20% or less. However, just remember that in the event of a large water loss in your home or property, humidity levels increase dramatically. Even if you have a fire loss at your home, and there is any standing water left from putting out the fire, mold growth can occur.

Regularly Clean your Gutters

Leaky gutters mean moisture getting into your home, increasing the risk for mold growth. So, clean out your gutters regularly to prevent leaks and overflows.

Increase Ventilation

Open a window during or after showering, cooking, or using the dishwasher to let excess moisture escape.
