Fort Lauderdale Airport, FL Mold Damage Remediation
Mold Can Be a Threatening Presence for Fort Lauderdale Airport Properties
Many property owners do not often realize when conditions have been met in their Fort Lauderdale Airport homes or businesses for mold growth. Excessive humidity is a staple of southern Florida, making it difficult to detect when moisture content exceeds the threshold to support a colonizing organism. If high-traffic structures battle mold growth, such as the Southland Shopping Center or the Broward College Tigertail Lake Recreational Center, it can expose hundreds of guests and patrons before our professional mold remediation company gets notified of the situation.
Finding and Repairing the Cause of Mold Damages
There are thousands of homes and businesses around the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, which means there is no shortage of properties that could contend with mold growth. Addressing these concerns requires professional mold remediation strategies, and the experience of our building trade experts. We have a division of general contractors that can perform controlled demolition, build back, repairs, and install solutions to reduce the humidity and moisture in your home or business.
Mold Remediation Strategies
Whether it is the Casino at Dania Beach or accommodation in Port Everglades, removing active mold colonies requires a calculated approach determined by the severity of the situation and the affected materials. It can often be more cost-effective in some properties like hotels off 17th Street to remove damaged drywall and replace it rather than to attempt to clean or restore these elements.

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 - (954) 776-2000
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off 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
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 Fort Lauderdale Airport, FL 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.
