Cape Canaveral, FL Mold Damage Remediation
How Likely is Mold Growth in Cape Canaveral Homes?
Mold growth and microbial threats can be a persistent threat to Cape Canaveral homes and businesses. The coastal climates leave a humid environment ideal for the colonization of mold spores, but the storm and flooding damage that can often impact the region can also elevate the likelihood of mold concerns. With high-traffic structures like the Cape View Elementary School or Exploration Tower, addressing these concerns is a vital effort.
Mold Remediation for Cape Canaveral
Removing active colonies from homes and businesses in the area requires an approach tailored to the specific damage in your property and the severity of these conditions. Because of how quickly mold organisms can spread, condominium structures like Canaveral Sands or Windjammer require effective containment immediately. Physical barriers prevent cross-contamination and help to regulate drying, airflow, and the removal of the organism. Different remediation strategies and containment efforts can often be necessary to keep shops open along the Westgate Cocoa Beach Pier.
Mold Damage Repairs
Repairs and reconstruction are often necessary for the toll that mold growth has taken on a structure. Also, our in-house contractors can provide long-term solutions to prevent recurrences where moisture continues to penetrate structures. Recurring mold can be a costly threat to renowned destinations like Royal Mansions or the Holiday Inn Club Vacations Cape Canaveral Beach Resort. We can offer both repairs and permanent water diversion/dehumidification equipment to address excessive moisture concerns that can facilitate mold growth.

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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 - (321) 638-4947
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, 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
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re 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 Cape Canaveral, FL 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.
