What Must Be Done for Mold Growth in Redding Ridge Homes?
The presence of mold and microbial threats in Redding Ridge properties, especially the structures of Weir Farm National Historic Park and other landmarks throughout the area, becomes a situation that must get resolved immediately. Microbial growth can deteriorate hosting materials. This is why our SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield team treats it with such urgency when we mobilize from our centrally located facility in Fairfield County. Mold remediation is a necessary service for these situations.
Qualified Mold Remediation Specialists for Redding Ridge
Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) is a classification of trained professionals accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) for prompt action and resolution of mold growth and microbial threats in Redding Ridge structures. There are multiple remediation tactics possible, depending on the severity and placement of the damage. Surface mold concerns on painted surfaces like you might find at Joel Barlow High School can require abrasive cleaning techniques and products. More penetrative and deeply rooted mold concerns in porous materials might require containment and controlled demolition. With appropriate containment approaches, sites like Topstone Park or the New Pond Farm can continue operation while remediation is underway.
Preventing Recurring Mold Threats
With a humid continental climate, environmental conditions can naturally exist to facilitate mold growth. Installing permanent dehumidification equipment and proper ventilation into susceptible Fairfield County homes and historic sites like the Mark Twain Library or Ground Pine Sanctuary structures can reduce recurring mold concerns.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 - (203) 791-0920
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
To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Redding Ridge, CT home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems 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
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
