One of the most important types of home restoration projects we perform is mold remediation. Mold isn’t something you can just wipe up or clean off using a chemical spray. Mold remediation requires specialists to do mold testing, removing the mold, sanitizing the area, and ensuring the mold is contained and not spreading elsewhere. 

Of course, prevention is the best way to deal with mold. In cases where flooding or some other disaster creates mold, you don’t have much control. In most other cases, mold growth is preventable as long as you know the right steps to take. 

We’re going to go over several of the ways to keep mold out of your home so you don’t have to arrange for mold remediation in Orange County, CA.

Simply taking out some spray cleaners and a few rags won’t get the job done—especially if the mold resulted from extensive water damage. Remediation requires special training and equipment, and you’ll only find that with professionals like the Jarvis Restoration team.
