MOLD DAMAGE REPAIR
The presence of excessive moisture in your home, due to poor ventilation, an appliance leak or the aftermath of flooding, if left untreated, can support mold growth. Mold naturally occurs everywhere in the environment, but certain types of mold release harmful toxins and can pose a health risk to humans and pets. There are also situations where mold is present, but is not visible. The EPA recommends immediate mold removal of any active mold growth inside a structure, whether it’s your home or business.
Our certified mold damage restoration experts are trained to identify mold, clean and restore the affected areas, and ensure there is no recurrence. If you suspect you have a mold issue, our certified restoration professionals are prepared to evaluate your property and provide you with a mold removal estimate. SpangleR also has mold damage experts who can examine your home and provide the best course of action to prevent mold.
Mold is usually not an issue, unless it starts to grow indoors. The best way to control mold is to control moisture. Indoor air quality is greatly impacted by mold growth. If you smell mustiness, it’s very likely mold is present. It could be advantageous to have your home analyzed by a mold removal expert.
Dealing with mold can be overwhelming as well as dangerous. When your home and health are exposed to mold, you need to rely on our team of professionals instead of trying to deal with the problem yourself. Heat and harsh chemicals may offer a temporary solution to your mold problem but may not completely erase the threat mold causes.
Trust our trained and certified mold technicians to not only clean up the mold in your home, but to find the moisture source and eliminate it so mold can no longer thrive. We check your home structurally, to find mold inside walls, and check in crawl spaces too. No matter how small the patch of mold is, it can grow quickly, so call the mold removal specialists at SpangleR right away.
SpangleR partners with you through the entire repair process, from Start to Finish
The first and most important factor, in our pursuit to earn trust in each of our reconstruction projects, is meticulous communication. Every job is assigned a project manager, who monitors the entire process and will keep you informed, and answer any questions that may arise. When emergency services are required, a SpangleR representative will contact you by phone within 15 minutes at any time of day.
Mitigation is the process of stopping further damage from occurring. Once the property is secured, the next steps are to properly dry, contain and remove damaging elements and prepare for the restoration process.
SpangleR uses current and state-of-the-art estimating programs, and are updated monthly for accuracy at each geographic location. A typical estimate will have detailed line items and a sketched diagram of the areas involved. An Emergency Service/Mitigation bill is prepared at the conclusion of the initial service and can be billed directly to the insurance company. Then, a detailed estimate with the entire scope of work, will be presented before restoration work begins. Customer Product Selection Forms and Change Order Forms are used to communicate and track customer selections. A payment schedule is also setup at this time.
The reconstruction phase of the project is when results start to show. All scheduling is handled through our Job Planning system. Customer involvement is encouraged to assure choices are understood, and also to prevent any miscommunication or misunderstandings. Your project manager will work to schedule in a manner that minimizes inconvenience and delay.
Once we complete your job to your satisfaction, we use a Certificate of Satisfaction to confirm this. In most cases your insurance representative will issue payment. If your name is included on the payment, we ask that you endorse the check when the work is complete and you are satisfied. Larger jobs may also include your mortgage company on the check, and may be setup on a payment draw schedule. We can help you through this paperwork process.
Your complete satisfaction and willingness to refer our services to others is our ultimate goal. All repairs completed by SpangleR will be guaranteed for one year and will cover defects and/or malfunctions due to faulty installation. We are available for questions and concerns anytime before, during and after repairs.

WHAT IS MOLD?
Mold, black mold, fungi, bacteria and mildew are all different types of fungal growths that require moisture and organic matter to feed upon. There is a large variety of fungal species, estimated to range from tens of thousands to perhaps 300,000 or more. The most common varieties found inside our homes include Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Stachybotrys, Penicillium and Alternaria. Humidity and water leaks are the main cause of mold infestations; high humidity levels trigger fungus germination and growth, while lower humidity tends to increase the release of mold spores as a method of self-preservation.
SIGNS OF MOLD GROWTH
A mold problem can usually be seen or smelled. Mold growth may often appear as slightly furry, discolored, or slimy patches that increase in size as they grow. Molds also produce a musty odor that may be the first indication of a problem. The best way to find mold is to examine areas for visible signs of mold growth, water staining, or follow your nose to the source of the odor. If you can see or smell mold, you can assume you have a mold problem. Other clues include excess moisture and water damage. It may be necessary to look behind and underneath surfaces, such as carpets, wallpaper, cabinets, and walls. There are some areas of the home that are always susceptible to mold growth and should be part of routine cleaning to keep them under control. They are seldom the cause of significant health effects. If you suspect mold growth in your home, call the mold damage restoration experts at Spangler Restoration right away.
Routinely Check These Areas:
- The seal on the refrigerator door
- Shower curtains
- Window moldings
- Shower stalls and bathroom tiles
- Surfaces on and around air conditioners
HOW TO PREVENT MOLD IN YOUR HOME
- When water leaks or spills occur indoors, ACT QUICKLY. If wet or damp materials or areas are dried 24-48 hours after a leak or spill happens, in most cases mold will not grow.
- Prevent condensation. Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.
- Use an air conditioner or dehumidifier during humid months.
- Do not carpet bathrooms and basements.
- Remove or replace previously soaked carpets and upholstery.
- Run the bathroom fan or open the window when showering. Use exhaust fans or open windows whenever cooking, running the dishwasher or dishwashing, etc.
Keep indoor humidity low. If possible, keep indoor humidity below 60 percent (ideally between 30 and 50 percent) relative humidity. Relative humidity can be measured with a moisture or humidity meter, a small, inexpensive ($10-$50) instrument available at many hardware stores.
