Brockton, MA Mold Damage Remediation
Overcoming Mold Growth in Your Brockton Home
Mold can be one of the underrated threats for a Brockton residence because many homeowners mistakenly believe that the condition comes and goes. Moist and damp areas of your property can often facilitate the growth and spread of mold colonies, making it vital to inspect low-traffic areas of your home regularly. Catching colonization in earlier stages can often reduce the time and money involved in remediation and prevent the organism from spreading far beyond this origin point.
Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation
Many area companies might tell you that they can remove all the mold in your Brocktonhome, but this is a misleading statement. No one can remove all of the molds in your property because spores exist naturally in almost every environment. It is only under specific conditions that these spores can sit into hosting materials and become a threat. Once colonization begins, remediation strategies exist to remove these active organisms. Our professionals have multiple strategies for removing colonies, including:
- Soda/Media Blasting
- Sanding Surfaces
- Antimicrobial Product Treatment
- Abrasive Surface Cleaning
- Controlled Demolition
Mold-Damaged Contents in Your Residence
As colonies spread, your personal belongings might be impacted by the organism. We have effective content management solutions to offer on-site and off-site recovery efforts, from surface cleaning and antimicrobial treatments to more complex drying and deodorization efforts. In our SERVPRO facility, your belongings are in the best care, stored in a climate-controlled warehouse until remediation completes.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- 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.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (508) 690-4690
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Brockton, MA home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
