Jacksonville, NC Mold Damage Remediation
From the facilities of the Department of Defense to higher education institutions like Coastal Carolina Community College or the Jacksonville branch of the University of Mount Olive, the city has hundreds of commercial properties to serve its nearly 75,000 residents. When mold damage threats arise, SERVPRO can help.
Mold Inspections Benefit Jacksonville Properties
The earliest actions taken to protect the property after mold exposure come from learning more about the disaster. Mold inspectors of our restoration team walk through the property and assess the spread and severity of spores and mold organisms. SERVPRO can evaluate organic matter serving as a host for colonies for salvageability.
Removing Mold in Jacksonville Homes
The mold removal process is not set when our team first arrives but must be determined based on data collected by the inspection process. Several potential approaches can remediate active colonization based on the severity of the infestation and the affected materials. Surface cleaning and media blasting can help in all remediation areas like:
- Content recovery
- Damage repairs
- Controlled demolition
- Odor removal
- Attic mold removal
Can SERVPRO Complete Mold Damage Repairs?
Your home or business's mold and microbial threats can infiltrate building materials and destroy the hosting elements. Our SERVPRO team can help with needed build-back services and repairs with a general contractor license. Demolition and subsequent reconstruction can eliminate active microbial colonization and return the property to pre-mold conditions.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (910) 319-0600
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Jacksonville, NC home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
