Loudon, TN Mold Damage Remediation
With our humid, subtropic climate, Loudon is one of the many Knoxville Metropolitan Statistical Area communities that battles mold and microbial threats all year long. Our SERVPRO team has multiple mold remediation technicians capable of responding quickly to these threats and working to return your property to preloss condition.
Mold Remediation Steps for Loudon Homes
Choosing the appropriate remediation strategies for removing active colonization and higher concentrations of mold spores means carefully evaluating damage and structural concerns in the property. We have experienced mold inspectors to assess the damage and what materials have become hosts to spreading organisms. How to overcome these developing microbial threats comes down to the most efficient solution that protects the hosting material as much as possible. Sanding and media blasting can directly impact deeply rooted organisms, while surface cleaning with antimicrobial products can address lighter damage.
Mold Damage Repair Solutions in Loudon
Because we have a general contracting license, we have a greater capacity to help homes and businesses impacted by mold development. Many of these structures require some degree of repair or reconstruction after remediation completes as controlled demolition is a standard method of eliminating colonies. Our license also allows us to address underlying issues that would enable moist and damp conditions to persist in areas of your home. We can help to address problems such as:
- Roof leaks and vulnerabilities
- Ceiling plumbing leaks
- Groundwater penetration for foundation walls

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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 - (865) 986-3015
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 Loudon, TN 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
Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums 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
We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Loudon, TN home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
