Mold Restoration Company In Phoenix
No homeowner or business owner wants to hear that they have mold. Mold spreads quickly and can cause severe respiratory problems, especially in infants, children, the elderly, and those with health issues. Depending on the extent of the mold, a property can even be declared uninhabitable due to the threat it poses to the health of the occupants.
Mold occurs in damp areas and is often caused by water damage or flooding. Mold can also be the result of a current water leak or improper water leak clean-up from a previous issue. Mold can be present in carpet, wall interiors, floorboards, and ceilings, as well as easily spotted locations.
HRS’s mold damage restoration experts in Phoenix will determine the source of the mold, remove all traces of the mold, and repair or replace the damaged structures, ensuring the issue that caused the mold is remediated.

Some molds are “toxigenic.” This means the mold can produce mycotoxins which are the chemical toxins that naturally occur in fungi.
While sometimes the terms “toxic mold” and “black mold” are used interchangeably, according to the CDC, “Color is not an indication of how dangerous a mold may be. Any mold should be removed and the moisture source that helped in grow should be removed.”
While mycotoxins evolved to help mold colonies defeat each other, it turns out they aren’t great for humans either. Exposure symptoms may vary, so always consult a doctor if you think your health has been affected.

What Causes Mold?
Mold is a naturally occurring fungus whose spores live in the air that we breathe every day. A water leak or breach, however, can create an environment that allows mold to not only settle but thrive and grow.
Mold grows in wet, dark, and humid places such as carpet, drywall, insulation, and building materials after a water leak. Left untreated, it will spread and damage the surface it is growing on.
It has also been linked to health problems such as asthma, headaches, and other illnesses in individuals sensitive to inhaling mold spores.
When Should You Do A Mold Inspection?
Any time you discover a leak or water intrusion, it is best to have a mold inspection completed by trained professionals. This is because of mold’s ability to grow and thrive in even small amounts of moisture.
Moisture can remain in a space, even after it appears dried if the area has not been properly mitigated and cleaned.
What Is Mold?
Mold is a naturally occurring fungus whose spores float in the air that we breathe every day.
Usually harmless in small amounts, mold can become more dangerous to the health of those living with it if allowed to thrive in a moist or damp space.
Mold spores are small organisms that can be black, white, orange, green, or purple and live almost anywhere indoors and outside.
Is Mold Toxic?
For many people, mold is not toxic in small doses, especially in the air that we breathe daily.
However, it is more toxic to individuals who are sensitive or allergic to it and can cause health issues such as asthma, psychiatric illness, headaches, muscle pain and other respiratory symptoms.
Those exposed to mold on a regular basis, such as people living in a house or working in a space infested by mold, are more likely to suffer illness as a result of the intensity and duration of exposure.
In short, mold can be toxic to some people in some situations, which is why it is essential to mitigate mold as soon as it is discovered.
How Dangerous Is Mold?
The degree to which mold is dangerous depends on a range of factors.
For some people, exposure to mold can cause an allergic reaction similar to those felt when seasonal allergies occur.
For others, mold can cause significant health concerns including asthma, psychiatric problems, muscle pain and bloody noses.
Mold can also lead to poisoning and severe illness in some individuals who are sensitive to it and have been exposed for a longer time period, such as in an infested workplace or home.
Mold Exposure Symptoms
Mold exposure symptoms can vary depending on the individual, the time and intensity of exposure. Common symptoms of mold exposure include red, itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing and sinusitis.
At least at first, these symptoms may abate or go away when outside of the infested space.
You may also suspect mold exposure when you can smell the musty odor given off by growing spores in damp spaces.
Can You Cleanup Mold Yourself?
Fully cleaning up mold requires finding the moisture source and stopping it, cleaning and drying the affected area, and disinfecting it to ensure that mold will not return.
One of the biggest challenges for property owners is finding all of the moisture in a space that has suffered a water intrusion, regardless of the size of the water event.
Even the smallest amount of moisture that is left untreated can lead to a mold infestation.
Certified mold mitigation technicians make use of technology such as thermal cameras and moisture monitors to ensure that all moisture is discovered and dried properly.

Mold restoration is the process of returning your mold-damaged property to its pre-mold condition.

Our licensed contractors, having more than two decades of combined experience, work to complete the job in as little time as possible — with quality results you can trust.

HRS Restoration Services – Phoenix
When disaster strikes, HRS’s 24 hour restoration services are here for your emergency cleaning and professional restoration needs. In addition to water extraction and water damage restoration, HRS offers the following emergency restoration services:
Water Extraction & Water Damage Restoration
Discovering water damage in your home or business—whether from a flood, a dishwasher malfunction, or a sewer backup—can feel devastating. And it can be a serious problem if not dealt with properly. In addition to causing damage, water can also spread contaminants that may lead to disease. A quick response to water intrusion is imperative due to the invasive properties of moisture:
- Within minutes, moisture-sensitive surfaces swell and disfigure. Paper goods (books, documents, pictures) can be ruined and stains from furniture start to appear on carpeting, which can be permanent.
- Within hours, drywall softens and warps, and wooden furniture can be permanently damaged. If carpet becomes delaminated (the primary backing separates from the secondary backing), it can cause irreparable damage.
- Within days, fungi and bacteria begin to grow and spread. Foul odors start to permeate your property.
HRS’s IICRC certified clean-up crews are composed of expert technicians—including Master Water Restorers—who will ensure you receive the highest quality water removal and water clean-up services. Once the cause of the water emergency is mitigated and clean-up has been completed, our construction team can provide the building services you need—such as drywall, painting, flooring, electrical, and plumbing—to return your home or business to its original state.
Our local water restoration specialists are standing by 24/7/365 to help you through your water emergency!
Fire Damage & Restoration
A fire can be the most traumatic and devastating experience a home or business owner ever faces. In a best case scenario, it can cause minor smoke damage; in a worst case scenario, it can obliterate an entire structure. HRS will help you navigate these stressful circumstances and bring your property back to a safely inhabitable state.
The fire damage restoration professionals at HRS are available 24 hours a day! By carefully following our proven procedures, we ensure your property is brought back to the safe, comfortable space that existed before the fire damage and smoke damage. This begins with a property inspection to assess the level of structural damage and content damage. We will report our findings to you and answer any questions you may have so you are fully informed and understand what results can be reasonably expected.
In simple terms, returning your home or business to its pre-fire state consists of three general elements: structural damage restoration, content restoration and/or removal, smoke mitigation, and odor mitigation. Making sure your property is structurally sound is a priority. If there are stability issues, our professional restoration team can provide full construction services to rectify the situation. We will also remove any of your belongings that have been burned beyond repair, including items containing synthetic materials. Any items that are salvageable will be repaired and returned both to minimize cost to the home or business owner as well as to help lessen the anxiety of loss; unsafe items will be disposed of. Finally, our disaster clean-up team will remove all smoke residue, including the pervasive odor. Our IICRC certified Odor Control Technicians will use odor removal techniques include thermal fogging, high-level ozone deodorization, and hydroxyl deodorization.

Trauma clean-up and bio-cleaning is not a subject people give much thought to until they need the service. When dealing with a crime scene at your home or business, or with the aftermath of a fatality, the emotional toll can be overwhelming. HRS professionals can help ease the burden of the situation by eliminating all trace of the death or incident. This includes removing unsafe items and substances such as blood, other bodily fluids, and filth, all of which can contain biological hazards. Sanitizing a trauma situation involves eradicating microscopic particulates such as bacteria and viruses to ensure a clean and healthy space. HRS Disaster Restoration follows IIRC s540 standards, providing the highest industry standard of trauma and crime scene clean-up. Our highly trained technicians will decontaminate your property, working in coordination with fire departments and police to help you through this process as efficiently and quickly as possible.
Our bio-cleaning professionals also specialize in remediating hoarding situations. Hoarding can be dangerous because it can put those in the vicinity at risk of fire, poor sanitation, and even structural issues in their home or commercial property in extreme cases.
Asbestos is commonly found in older buildings, both residential and. It can be found in numerous construction materials, including concrete, asphalt, roof shingles, pipes, siding, wall board, floor tiles, joint compounds, adhesive, and insulation. The US banned the use of asbestos in the manufacturing of most materials in 1978, which is why we assume properties constructed before 1980 could have asbestos present. However, it’s important to note that in our increasingly global marketplace, many building materials are imported from abroad, and not all countries have the same stringent guidelines as the US. Because of this, it is possible to come across asbestos in newer structures, especially commercial buildings.
The hazardous nature of asbestos abatement calls for professional remediation to ensure safe removal and disposal. HRS will extract all asbestos from your property to bring it back to a safely inhabitable space. Once the asbestos remediation is complete, our restoration team can rebuild the affected areas.
Reconstruction & Restoration
Handling a home or commercial property’s disaster situation requires both mitigating the issue and rebuilding the affected areas of the property. Once the emergency has been taken care of—whether it’s water damage, fire damage, mold remediation, trauma clean-up/bio-cleaning, or asbestos abatement—the property will need to be restored. This could include structural repairs, drywall, plumbing, electrical, and/or landscape replacement … just to name a few. As a fully licensed general contractor, we can provide these services to homeowners as well as commercial properties. Our work ranges from basic repairs to complex, multi-faceted projects.
