Mold Remediation

If you are experiencing a mold issue, get in touch with 4Pro Restoration Solutions ASAP. Mold can be found virtually anywhere and can be invisible to the naked eye, but it thrives in warm, damp areas. Mold growth is often invisible to the naked eye and it is often confined to inaccessible areas in residential and commercial properties like crawl spaces, wall and ceiling cavities, HVAC ducting. Because mold can grow fast, our team of expert specialists is trained to work even faster to stop it from spreading and causing health issues

Health Effects of Living with Mold

Any substance inhaled into the lungs has the capacity to affect a person’s health, especially when it consists of microscopic particles that are easily absorbed into the body. Spores can block airways and cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Aspergillus is a common mold that can actually begin growing inside human lungs. Other species of mold have the additional detrimental quality of releasing mycotoxins, harmful chemicals secreted only by fungi.

The good news is that the rare reports of pulmonary hemorrhage and memory loss because of mold exposure are largely unsubstantiated.

However, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Federal Emergency Management Agency have documented the following symptoms in people exposed to mold:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Wheezing or shortness of breath
  • Sneezing fits
  • Bloody nose
  • Red eyes
  • Skin irritation
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Aches and pains
  • Asthma attacks in those with asthma

Mold Remediation Process

No two homes are exactly alike, and we take pride in catering our process to your unique situation. Here are the basic steps we follow in the process of mold remediation, so you will know what kind of quality service to expect.

Step 1: Answer Your Call for Help

Once you suspect mold, contact us any hour of the day or night at 720-355-6962 . A member of our customer service department will ask you a few questions to get a better idea of the type of mold you have and the extent of the damage it has caused. Within 15 minutes, we will assign a team of professionals to your case.


Step 2: Inspect the Home and Assess Damage

Within one hour of your call, expect the arrival of an operation manager to inspect your home or business for evidence of mold. We look in hidden areas that may not be obvious to the casual observer. We also collect samples of the mold to determine which species present through third-party laboratory cultures.

Step 3: Contain Existing Mold

Once the presence of mold is established, our first task is to keep it from spreading throughout the building. We turn off fans and air conditioning systems, and then isolate the area with negative air chambers and other physical barriers. These strategies help keep the mold in one place so we can eliminate it more easily.


Step 4: Filter the Air

We clean your indoor air with a HEPA filter and powerful vacuums that essentially scrub the air until it is free from contaminants. This step is essential to removing spores and preventing the regrowth of mold. Our goal is to return the level of airborne spores to the natural level of the outside environment. Most customers notice an immediate improvement in air breathability.


Step 5: Remove Mold and Infested Building Materials

We do the dirty work of disposing of building materials such as drywall, insulation, wallpaper, and carpeting that we cannot salvage through intensive cleaning. We clean all other contaminated structures with antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to remove existing mold and prevent new spores from establishing themselves.

Step 6: Clean Building Contents and Personal Belongings

You can trust 4PRO Restoration to clean furniture, clothing, curtains, and other personal items inside your home or business. We use various techniques including wet and dry cleaning, foams, abrasions, and immersions, depending on the type of material. We also use fogging to remove the musty smell associated with a mold infestation.

Step 7: Restore the Building to Pre-Mold Condition

The last step is to complete the restoration by installing sound building materials in place of the damaged ones. Depending on the level of infestation, reconstruction may involve rebuilding entire rooms or simply replacing panels of drywall, reinstalling wallpaper, or replacing portions of carpeting. We are not satisfied until there is no noticeable trace of a previous mold infestation.
