FAQ About Mold & Mold Removal
What is Mold?
Mold is a fungus that grows both indoors and outdoors. There are numerous species of mold, including several that spread through the air and water. Mold can survive extreme environments.
How Does Mold Grow?
For mold to grow, a food source, oxygen, and environment between 40-100 degrees F is required. Due to this, mold often grows in damp, humid spots. Leaks, overflows, and floods in your property can lead to future mold growth if left untreated.
Is Mold Dangerous?
Not only is mold harmful to your health, it also has detrimental affects on your property. Health concerns include asthma, rashes, headaches, allergic reactions, and difficulty breathing. On the other hand, mold can destroy your property’s crawl space, foundation, roof, HVAC system, drywall, and other components.
What Causes Mold to Spread?
Organic food sources breed mold. A common source is cellulose, which is often found in wood and drywall. These locations often fall prey to mold.
How Can I Spot Mold?
Mold announces its presence in a variety of ways. If you notice a musty odor and/or discolored ceilings, floors, and walls, this is generally indicative of a water leak that has sprouted mold.
Can I Remove Mold Myself?
Due to the health concerns associated with mold, DIY mold remediation is highly discouraged. As a professional mold removal company, E and K restore is uniquely equpped to handle the job. We remove mold without spreading spores.

Our Mold Removal & Remediation Process
Air Quality Test
Depending on the type of mold, the mold spores can be hazardous to your health. These hazards include allergies, asthma attacks, infections, nose bleeds or even in some cases cancer. The only way to know exactly what mold you have in your house or business is to hire an industrial hygienist to conduct a test to check your property for the presence of mold.
Mold spreads very quickly under the right circumstances. Following a water related disaster, mold can take over entire buildings within a matter of days. To prevent this we will begin containing the affected area immediately. Utilizing proper protection equipment (PPE) and advanced containment techniques, our team of mold removal specialists will safely and quickly contain the mold.
Since we’ve already identified the mold-damaged materials, after containing the mold, we can begin removing those damaged materials. At E & K Restore, once our team of remediation specialists have carefully removed the damaged materials, we will go through your home or business, spraying and cleaning every surface with an antimicrobial wash, to kill any remaining spores.
Now that the remediation process has been completed, we need to make sure that your air quality is safe before finishing up the repairs and getting your life back to normal. So once again we will need the industrial hygienist to conduct another air quality test. When that test comes back clean, we can move onto the final step of the mold removal process.
Rebuild & Remodel
Getting a clean test on that clearance test means that our team at E & K Restore can begin making the repairs needed to finish the job. As a licensed general contractor, we have the ability to complete any repair, from flooring to drywall to cabinets to entire comprehensive projects.

Toxic Black Mold
When a homeowner detects a moldy substance that is a greenish black color, they must take immediate steps to remove it. This is called black mold and is extremely toxic and very lethal.
Black mold removal is essential as it is responsible for a variety of health problems. It can cause a person to experience severe headaches, asthma, urinary tract infections and more. Health officials claim that black mold can be directly linked to over 100 different lung conditions.
If a homeowner wants to perform black mold removal on their own, there are certain things they should know.
They should not scrape the black mold as this will release spores into the air. Before performing the removal they need to cover themselves completely, including goggles, protective gloves and use a filter dust mask. They should seal off affected areas with plastic and tape. They should carefully clean the area with soap and water and place any affected materials in a plastic bag and seal it. The should then apply a disinfectant on the area where the mold was located, as well as the surrounding areas.
There are a variety of products that can be used to disinfect after black mold removal such as vinegar, tea tree oil and grapefruit seed extract.
One of the best ways to handle black mold is through prevention. It’s important to control a home’s dampness. Homeowners can use paint that contains mildewcide, which prevents mold and mildew. Stopping leaks and making sure a home is properly ventilated are just some of the things that can be done to lessen the chances of a home developing black mold.
