Mold removal should be your number one priority as soon as you spot any growth. It’s a significant problem here in the Southern Gulf. Warm, moist air creates the perfect environment for excessive mold growth, especially after catastrophic events like hurricanes or flooding rains.
Mold growth is commonly found in areas prone to excess moisture. In these areas, mold is generally easily detected and removed, but after a water damage event from flooding rains, burst pipes or a malfunctioning HVAC unit, mold may grow unnoticed behind walls, in carpet, in HVAC ducts, in furniture or in other hidden areas.
Mold is resilient and can grow on nearly every type of surface. If your home or business has recently experienced water damage, contact Action Restoration today!
Our Mold Remediation Services
Action Restoration offers a variety of mold removal services in the Gulf Coast region, including:
- Air duct cleaning – an HVAC system that does not properly drain can be a source of mold growth within your air ducts. Mold spores in your HVAC ducts can easily spread throughout your home or business, threatening the health of family members or employees. Our air duct cleaning services will remove mold from your air ducts, leaving you with a safe and healthy air system.
- Surface cleaning – we will clean and decontaminate all affected areas with our environmentally friendly ASA-1000 decontaminant solution.

How Do You Know if You Need Professional Mold Removal Services?
Chances are, mold is present in some locations in your home or business. Mold is common in areas that stay wet regularly – the bathroom, kitchen or laundry facilities for example. This mold should be cleaned regularly, but it does not pose a significant threat to building inhabitants. Some signs you need to call for professional mold remediation include:
- Large patches of discoloration
- Lingering musty odors
- Standing water where there shouldn’t be
- Quickly-spreading spots of mold
- Growth near or on your home or business’ HVAC system or air ducts
- Scrubbing or cleaning hasn’t worked when you do it by yourself
Harmful mold growth is more likely to occur after water damage. If you’ve recently had flooding conditions or a burst pipe at your home or business, there is a good chance that mold growth has occurred in areas that you cannot see. If this has occurred at your property, you should have a mold inspection to make sure you do not have mold growing behind walls or in your air ducts. Regular mold inspections are a great way to make sure your property remains mold free.
