Mold Remediation Company In Phoenix
Removal & Recurrence Prevention
Once mold is detected, it’s imperative to deal with it as soon as possible. Mold remediation involves removing and/or disinfecting any components of the building affected by the mold. Permeable surfaces infested with mold are usually removed rather than cleaned, while non-porous surfaces can often be disinfected. Multiple steps are taken to prevent the mold spores from spreading further. The area being worked in is sealed off and the contaminated debris—whether cleaning implements or removed parts of the structure—is sealed in plastic bags. HRS mold remediation specialists wear
protective gear, both to help prevent the disbursement of the spores via clothing and to protect against their toxicity.
Another element to the remediation process is to ensure the issue that resulted in mold growth is fully corrected so it does not recur. This may be fixing a leaking pipe, determining the source of excess humidity in a home, or locating a roof leak. Whatever the issue, HRS’s restoration specialists will get to the source of the problem and ensure it is repaired.

Mold Remediation FAQs
Mold is a fungus that grows in areas that are wet, warm, and dark. It produces spores that float in the air and can affect the health of those who inhale it.
After a water intrusion, many areas of a home are conducive to mold growth. These include hidden areas like behind water-soaked doors, under tiles on a shower wall and in a carpet that has been exposed to water.
Because mold cannot survive without water, a thorough drying out of a space is essential to ending a mold infestation. No moisture can be allowed to remain, and working with a phoenix mold removal specialist professional ensures that every hidden corner is properly dried.
What Causes Mold?
Mold spores are in the air, both inside and outside, every day.
Mold grows and becomes more dangerous though when it is able to attach to a water source and find warmth and darkness.
Mold colonies form on materials, like those in a home that has suffered a water intrusion, and begin to spread. This expansion can happen quickly and can grow as much as one new square inch a day.
Is Mold Dangerous?
A mold infestation can be dangerous to those who are sensitive to inhaling its spores.
A mold allergy can lead people exposed to it to suffer a range of illnesses.
Some feel allergy-like symptoms such as itchy eyes and a cough. For other individuals, long-term health issues may occur including asthma, psychological issues, and muscle and joint pain.
The length of the exposure, the size of the mold infestation, and the level of sensitivity are all factors in determining the danger of mold.
How Fast Does Mold Grow?
Mold grows quickly, and expands as long as it has access to a food source. Food sources for mold include building materials, like wood, paper, and carpet, that have become moist after a water intrusion.
It can begin to form in only 24-hours after a water breach.
Mold colonies can spread as quickly as one square inch per day and in just a week can cover a full square foot of a surface.
Does Mold Spread?
Mold spreads as long as it can find moisture. Without moisture, it cannot grow.
Mold will spread as much as one square inch a day if its food source is not properly dried.
After a water intrusion, stopping the source of water is essential to eliminating mold in a home.
Why Is Removing Mold Important?
Removing mold is an important step to take after it begins to grow in a home that has suffered a water breach.
As soon as a mold colony begins to grow, it emits spores that float in the air. These spores can be inhaled by those living and working in a space.
For some individuals, inhaling the spores can lead to illnesses ranging in severity from headaches and coughs to long term asthma and psychological issues.
In addition, removing mold limits the damage that it can cause to areas of a space that are susceptible to mold growth.
Mold removal services in Phoenix can help limit any health issues using professional tools and technology.

Mold remediation services in Phoenix cost can vary depending on several factors. These include the size of the property affected, the degree of the mold infestation, and the type of mold that has grown in a space.
As leaders in mold remediation companies in Phoenix and Denver, HRS works with you and your insurance company to ensure that the costs are balanced with the benefit of removing potentially toxic mold and bringing your home back to its pre-damaged condition.
How Long Does Mold Remediation Take?
Like the cost of mold remediation, the time that a project takes can vary based on a range of factors.
The size of a property that has suffered a mold infestation, the level of mold growth, the type of mold, and the damage caused can all affect the time that it takes to fully dry and remediate a mold emergency.

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.
Our reconstruction efforts extend to your belongings affected by the disaster. Our content restoration program will repair any salvageable items including furniture, clothing, and electronics.

HRS will provide the necessary remediation services efficiently and discretely. Regardless of when the damage occurs—during business hours or in the middle of the night—HRS is available to remedy the situation. Water damage … storm damage … mold remediation … fire/smoke mitigation … HRS’s professional technicians are ready to bring your property back to its pre-disaster state.
