Mold remediation and mold removal are two of the premier services we offer at Rapid Restoration Recovery Inc.
High humidity is one of the reasons we experience problems with mold and mildew in this part of the United States. But, humidity is not the only cause of mold. If you would like some of your frequent questions about mold removal and mold remediation answered, feel free to read our FAQ Section on mold remediation.
How Long After Water Damage Does Mold Grow?
Yes, there is an association between mold and water damage. But, water damage is not the only reason we experience mold growth in our homes.
As the climate is both hot and humid in this part of the United States, we experience mold growth faster after water damage. As a matter of fact, mold or mildew spores spread so fast they can start growing almost right away. If you have experienced a water leak in the past, you probably know exactly what we mean.
Mold appears very fast in our climate and can spread. This is why it is important to contact a mold remediation service fast.
Where in My Home Can I Find Mold?
Mold is part of nature. It is found in our homes, commercial properties, and other places. It really doesn’t matter where you go – you will find mold.
Of course, you are likely to find mold in some areas of your home more frequently than others. Mold spores love growing in damp areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements.
But, it can grow almost anywhere. If you have a slow leak in your home, mold quickly establishes itself. Dampness is like a magnet for mold. It seems to know where the leak is and points you to it.
Although mold likes to grow in an area with a leak, it does not always manifest itself. Sometimes, you may notice a damp area and think nothing of it. The next day when you look, you will notice a covering of black. Mold has discovered the leak.
To back up our mold remediation service, we also offer a leak detection service. The team at Rapid Restoration Recovery Inc knows how important it is to find a leak FAST. Even a slow leak can do a lot of damage and cause an excessive amount of mold growth.
Can I Deep Clean My Own Home to Get Rid of Mold?
Supermarket cleaning products are not really up to getting rid of mold and deep cleaning your home. Actually, mold has very little to do with dirt.
Yes, mold is more likely to turn up in unclean households, but that is not as a rule of thumb. Rapid Restoration Recovery Inc offers a hoarder cleanup service. During hoarder cleanups, we often mold.
The mold found is not always down to the home or building being unclean. Hoarders often put away damp materials which cause mold to grow faster.
How Much Does a Mold Remediation Cost?

Does Mold Cause Urgent and Long-Term Health Problems?
Yes, it can. If you are sensitive to mold, it can cause both urgent and long-term health problems.
