 SERVPRO of Woodland Hills can help get you through this.

How did it get here?

Molds grow by digesting and destroying the material they grow on. They can be found almost anywhere and can grow on just about any material as long as conditions are favorable.  Mold needs oxygen, moisture, and a material to grow on. Molds reproduce by making spores. These spores become airborne. If spores land on suitable material and conditions are favorable, the mold will begin to grow.

Even though molds are everywhere, they may become a problem when they begin to grow indoors. Many building materials such as drywall, ceiling tiles and wood framing contain cellulose, which is a material on which molds can grow. As molds grow on building materials they may become destructive. Molds may grow unnoticed, above ceilings, behind walls, in attics and basements or in crawl spaces. Molds can cause staining of walls and ceilings and can begin to break down the studs and joists of buildings causing extensive property damage.

Excessive moisture is a key ingredient which causes molds to grow. Sources of excess moisture may be plumbing leaks, leaking roofs or windows, high humidity, flooding, or condensation inside walls due to poor insulation.

SERVPRO of Woodland Hills has 24 years of Mold Remediation experience and knows exactly how to help get mold under control.

Don't wait for water damage to turn to mold. Call SERVPRO 818-882-4556


Mold can spread through a home or business in as little as 48 hours after being exposed to water.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • 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.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.
