When Is Mold Remediation Required?


As homeowners, keeping our properties safe and healthy is a top priority. Unfortunately, mold growth can sometimes occur, posing risks to our homes and well-being.

At Resto Clean Wasilla, we understand the importance of identifying when professional mold remediation services are needed.

Mold is a type of fungus that thrives in damp, humid environments and can spread quickly. While small amounts of mold may be unavoidable, larger infestations require prompt attention. Here are the key situations when you should call in the experts for mold remediation:


Visible Mold Growth

If you can visibly see significant mold patches covering areas larger than 10 square feet, it’s time to take action. Mold grows in colonies, so even if a patch seems contained, there are likely many more mold spores you can’t see. Catching it early is important before it spreads further.


Persistent Musty Odors

Sometimes, mold can be present without being visible to the naked eye. A persistent musty, damp, or earthy smell in certain areas of your home or business could indicate hidden mold growth behind walls, under floors, or above ceilings. Don’t ignore foul odors – have them properly inspected.


Recent Water Damage

Mold only needs moisture and a nutrient source like drywall or wood to start growing within 24-48 hours after a water damage incident. If you’ve experienced flooding, leaks, or high humidity, mold remediation may be necessary to ensure no colonies could establish a foothold during repairs.


Occupant Health Concerns

Certain types of mold can produce toxins that may cause health issues like respiratory problems, headaches, and allergy symptoms. If you notice a pattern of these symptoms in your home or workplace, undetected mold could be the culprit, requiring professional assessment and removal.


Before Renovations/Real Estate Transactions

Are you planning any demolition or renovations? Have the area inspected first for mold contamination, which could be disturbed and spread further during construction activities if not adequately remediated beforehand. Mold issues should also be resolved before real estate sales to ensure a smooth and legally compliant transaction.

The professionals at Resto Clean Wasilla are highly trained and certified in the latest mold remediation standards and techniques set forth by organizations like the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). We use proven methods to contain the affected area, remove all traces of mold, and restore your property to a safe, healthy environment.

Don’t let mold put your property or health at risk—be vigilant about the warning signs and contact us at the first suspicion of a potential mold issue. Our experienced team will inspect, assess, and walk you through the remediation process so you can breathe easily again.
