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 Remediation



Mold is a type of fungus that can grow on various surfaces in homes and buildings. It thrives in warm, humid environments and can cause damage to structures, as well as potential health risks to occupants. Mold can grow on a variety of surfaces, including walls, floors, ceilings, and personal possessions causing damage to the items it's growing on. It can also grow behind walls, in attics, and in other hidden areas, making it difficult to detect. If mold is left untreated, it can cause significant damage to the structure of a building and the health of its occupants. It is essential to address mold promptly and have it removed by a professional to prevent further damage and potential health risks.



SERVPRO of Downtown San Antonio's team of highly trained technicians can help you with every aspect of the mold remediation process, starting with a thorough assessment of the mold damage, testing the air and surfaces to detect hidden mold, and developing a plan of action. We use advanced mold remediation techniques such as HEPA vacuuming and soda blasting to effectively remove mold and prevent it from returning. We also use thermal imaging technology to detect hidden moisture, which can help prevent the growth of mold and other harmful organisms.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.
