Mold Removal & Remediation

Mold is not something you want to take your time removing from your home or place of business. Mold spores often carry airborne toxins, putting you, your family, your pets, and your guests at risk. The effects of living with mold can range from everything from headaches and coughing to asthma attacks and immune dysfunction even after just one exposure, so getting it remedied quickly is of utmost importance. You also need it done correctly the first time to avoid remaining spores creating new mold production that continues to affect your home and your wallet. Not to mention, not handling mold infestations properly can lead to permanent damage of your property, so a reliable expert is extremely important. Cape Fear Restoration has been a trusted mold removal and remediation technician for years, working quickly and efficiently to remove every trace of mold without causing widespread damage to your home or business. We’re your North Carolina partner when you need a company you can count on.

Types of Mold

There are so many different types of mold that can occur inside and outside your house or office, more than you realize. Mold occurs most frequently in damp, dark areas like your basement, attic, cellar, crawlspace, etc., but it’s also commonly seen in bathroom and kitchens where leaks can occur under floors and behind walls. The most common types of mold we see in homes are:

  • Aspergillus
  • Aureobasidium
  • Botrytis
  • Chaetomium
  • Cladosporium
  • Fusarium
  • Penicillium
  • Serpula lacrymans
  • Trichoderma
  • Ulocladium
  • Efflorescence
  • Stachybotrys chartarum

That last one is especially important to note, as it’s also known as “black mold” and is extremely dangerous to the health of people and pets, though all have the potential to cause serious health concerns.


Mold Removal Is Not a DIY Job

There are many projects you can do yourself around your home or business to cut costs and gain a new skill. However, mold removal or anything relating to mold should never be one of them, and we mean that sincerely. There’s more to mold than you can see, and it must be handled extremely carefully to avoid spreading it to other areas or ingesting it in a way that can be highly dangerous. A trained, experienced professional is necessary for any type of mold job to ensure it’s done safely. A mold specialist will properly block off the affected area and create a circulation system to move mold spores out of the room without causing spreading. They will also have the proper gear, masks, and equipment to ensure every last bit of mold is removed and the area is cleaned and returned to a safe state.
