Finding mold in your home or business can be an alarming discovery. However, mold is actually all around us naturally, both indoors and out. Not all mold is toxic, but any mold that is found growing indoors is not a good sign. Indoor mold can have dreadful and dangerous effects on your building’s structure and your health, not to mention its unpleasant odor and appearance. Big Wave Restoration knows you have more important things to do other than dealing with a mold issue. Our comprehensive mold testing and mold removal services will ensure that mold is eliminated from your property and you can get back to what’s important.

Mold is a fungus that flourishes in moist, humid environments and spreads by spores in the air. It can manifest in all colors, textures and patterns and is generally harmless in low humidity or small amounts. The potential danger is when mold spores settle and grow in a favorable location indoors and these spores are inhaled. Exposure to mold can affect the eyes, lungs, skin, nose and throat in various ways. Those with existing respiratory conditions or asthma may also experience an increase or worsening of symptoms in the presence of mold.

Mold Removal in Ceiling


When mold becomes apparent by sight or smell, usually it has had some time to grow and possibly cause damage. Removing any mold found is the priority no matter what type is found or how severe the growth is. While each mold remediation is unique, we will typically follow a general process to remove the offending mold.


Our assessment includes a survey of the affected area and finding the source where the mold is thriving from. An actionable plan will then be made to eliminate the source and clear the mold.

Assessment will show what areas have been affected and we will isolate and contain the mold to prevent further spread. Mold affected materials will be safely removed and disposed

All surfaces will need to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized for safe use again and if any structural damage has occurred, they will be repaired or rebuilt.


Sometimes, it is not immediately obvious that mold is present in your home or business. Perhaps there’s a lingering smell that makes you question, but there is seemingly no visible evidence of mold. If this is the case, it is suggested to turn off the HVAC system and wait a few hours. You may be able to detect where the scent is the strongest and this could be the possible source. There may also have been recent water leaks or someone in the building suffering inexplicable symptoms when they’re in the vicinity. These are the most common reasons to perform a mold test.

Once we complete a thorough visual assessment of the building, air and surface samples may be collected and sent to the lab for analysis. Since mold requires a moist and humid source, our objective is to determine the source so that mold cannot continue to grow after the remediation has been completed. If mold is already visible, chances are, you have mold and a mold inspection is not truly necessary. Regardless of your intuition, Big Wave Restoration will be able to solve your suspicions and determine what kind of mold and the severity with a complete mold testing.
