Mold Removal by ServiceMaster NCR
Airborne mold spores are part of the natural environment and when they find an area that has a moisture source and an organic food source such as wood, they form into mold growth. Mold colonies will also release spores in the air which causes the mold growth to spread within your home. These spores are what trigger health reactions such as allergies and respiratory problems. The surfaces that mold grows on are also its food source and if given enough time, the mold can devour the affected surfaces and leave them permanently damaged.
Our technicians can fully remove mold growth with our advanced cleaning products and equipment and we use the best available personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep ourselves safe. We will immediately contain the mold growth to prevent it from spreading to new areas before beginning the mold removal process. You can expect the following from our mold removal services:
- Total assessment of the mold growth
- Environmental engineering controls
- Restorative drying
- Microbial remediation
- Content cleaning and pack-out
Mold Damage Tips
Mold growth will not appear in a home or building unless it is provided with moisture which is why you must keep excess moisture out of your home. Controlling the moisture level is the most effective way to prevent mold growth so make sure you wipe off wet surfaces and fix any water related issues before the problem becomes more severe. You can remove minor amounts of mold growth from your walls or ceiling using a solution of mild detergent and water, but you must call in the professionals if the mold growth covers a large area.
The possibility of experiencing serious health effects is part of what makes the presence of mold so dangerous. Those exposed to mold spores may experience allergic reactions such as nasal congestion, coughing, skin irritation, and itchy eyes or throat and extended exposure will lead to more serious issues like asthma or respiratory infections. If your home or building has sustained any water damage, the World Health Organization warns that water damage buildings (WDB) may be contaminated by hazardous toxins and inflammagens including volatile organic compounds (VOCs), fungi, and bacteria.
Mold removal is the most effective when done by licensed professionals that have the experience and equipment to prevent mold from spreading and lower the risk of possible health effects.

Trifect Mold Removal and InstaScope Testing
Many vendors that provide mold removal services must remove drywall to locate hidden mold which makes the process very messy and expensive. ServiceMaster NCR has recently started using the Trifect mold removal method along with the InstaScope testing system to locate and remove mold without having to remove any drywall. This process is less invasive than previous methods of mold removal and may cost up to about 50 percent less.
We begin by getting a baseline measurement of the airborne mold levels outside the home using the InstaScope testing system. We then test each room and use the baseline measurement to determine which areas have higher mold levels so we can locate hidden mold growth. After determining the full extent of the mold growth, we start the mold removal process with the Trifect mold removal method. The Trifect method consists of these 3 steps:
- Surface Application: We apply a proprietary topical solution to surfaces with visible mold.
- MAG 50: We remove visible and hidden mold with submicron aerosol decontamination.
- InstaScope Verification: Once the mold removal is complete, we retest the home with the InstaScope testing system to make sure all mold growth has been eliminated.
Why ServiceMaster NCR for Mold Removal
