If you have a mold problem in your home or suspect you have one, you may be considering professional mold removal services. One of the problems with mold is the fact that it can be hazardous and toxic to breathe in if you’re breathing it in on daily basis. It’s very true that mold spores exist in every environment – whether you’re in a brand new home or a home built in the 1800s, mold spores are present. However, it’s the amount of mold and the type that’s growing that is the problem. If you’re considering mold abatement in San Diego, Hometown Restoration is here to help.

When companies use the terms mold abatement, mold removal, and mold remediation, they can mean different things, and to a degree, they can be used somewhat interchangeably. The problem is, you don’t want to go all the trouble of having a professional company remove mold in your home without taking some preventative measures to prevent it from coming back. And that’s why mold abatement and mold remediation (which are quite interchangeable) are different from mold removal.

When we come to inspect your home for mold, we will first ask you if you’ve physically seen mold growing in your home, and if you’ve also smelled it. If you’ve seen it and/or smelled it, that can lead us in the right direction immediately. If not, we simply have to perform a more thorough inspection to find and isolate the mold. When we remove the mold, we contain and remove it, but we also filter your air to make sure the spores are no longer lingering in the atmosphere or on your belongings. We may also perform restoration, such as replacing drywall for instance, to take away mold-damaged parts of your home and replace them with new ones. We want to take all stops possible to prevent mold from growing again in your home.
