How We Remove and Remediate Mold
(the most important step)
Our first step is to contain the work within a specific area, which will be placed under negative air pressure and vented to the outdoors. This prevents cross-contamination of mold spores in the non-affected areas of the building.
HEPA Air Scrubbing
Mold Fix technicians will clean the air using commercial-grade, industrial-strength air scrubbing machines. These machines have HEPA filters that capture 99.97% of all airborne and microscopic dust and mold spores.
If necessary, we will carefully remove any mold-contaminated materials and other impacted materials. Our goal is to control the demo and avoid stirring up additional mold spores. Don’t worry – we won’t damage your home or business.
We will use a special vacuum with HEPA filters to clean the contaminated area. This filter captures any remaining mold or dust particles that have become airborne or embedded in your carpet.
We will clean the entire contaminated area with antimicrobial cleaning agents to kill any residual mold growth. This will also inhibit the growth of future mold, mildew, bacteria, and algae.
Once we have finished our removal and remediation, we’ll vacuum the space again, wipe down surfaces with antimicrobial wipes, and remove all of the equipment.

FAQs About Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold grows around moisture-rich places, such as near leaks in roofs, windows, or pipes. It is also especially prevalent in the aftermath of water damage. If you recently experienced a leak or flood, keep a wary eye out for mold growth as everything dries.
Mold is typically found in moist or wet areas. You might notice a musty odor, or you might see spores landing on surfaces.
Some common places where mold can be found inside the home include:
- Kitchens (especially the bottom of the fridge)
- Around bathroom vanities
- Washer/dryer area
- Undersides of carpets and pads
- Wall surfaces that are hidden behind furniture
- Ceilings and the top side of ceiling tiles
Mold growth is most commonly discovered from late spring to early fall. During this time, California's warm temperature and high humidity levels are very conducive to mold growth.
Although the two terms are often used interchangeably, they are not the same. Remediation is the removal of contaminated material and the mold itself. Mold removal is the basic removal of mold spores from surfaces, but it does not include the removal of contaminated materials.
No. In fact, we often recommend that property owners leave during the mold remediation process to limit their exposure to airborne spores (although this is not required).
If left untreated, mold spores will rapidly spread to other areas of your home or business. The more it spreads, the harder it is to remove. Additionally, larger infestations are more likely to cause serious health issues among humans living or working in the space.
When some people are exposed to mold growth, especially for long periods, they may experience mold toxicity symptoms. These can include:
- watery eyes
- chest tightness
- runny nose
- asthma problems
- nasal congestion
- skin rashes
It typically takes us anywhere from one day to around a week to tackle an infestation. The project's duration can vary greatly depending on the affected area's size and the extent of the damage. Book a free assessment today to get an estimate for your project’s timeline.
Yes. Keeping your home's humidity levels under 60% can prevent or stall mold growth. Ideally, you want to achieve humidity levels that are between 30% and 50%.
Yes, air purifiers can capture mold spores from the air, preventing them from reproducing and spreading. However, air purifiers cannot treat active mold growth that's already present on surfaces.
Mold will come back repeatedly if not properly addressed. That’s why it’s critical that you work with mold removal specialists who will actually ensure the infestation is eliminated and won’t return.
We do not recommend removing mold on your own. Not only could you potentially jeopardize your health and safety, but it’s also difficult to ensure you’ve fully handled the infestation.
The best way to ensure mold is properly eradicated is to hire experienced, industry-trained professionals. At Mold Fix, we have the necessary tools and knowledge to fully remove and remediate mold.
In most cases, no, mold-related damages are not covered by insurance plans. However, coverage will depend heavily on your unique situation. If you have experienced flooding or weather-related moisture problems, your plan might offer some coverage for mold remediation.
If you are working with an insurance agent, let us know. Mold Fix will provide your insurance company with any necessary updates and pricing information.
The best way to prevent mold growth is to keep your humidity levels under 60% at all times. This may require using dehumidifiers, fans, and open windows.
You should also prevent moisture from accumulating anywhere in your home via leaks or spills. Check your plumbing regularly and watch for signs of hidden leaks, which can sneakily contribute to mold growth.
