Penacook, NH Mold Damage Remediation
The community is surrounded by natural reserves, recreational areas, and bodies of water to make Merrimack County among the most striking views to visitors and residents alike. This includes the Merrimack River and its nearby structures. These same elements can increase humidity and possible storm damages to the area, however. Mold and microbial threats can develop fast in moist environments, making the fast and knowledgeable response of our remediation team critical to help with:
- Mold specialists
- Attic mold
- Black mold
- Mold remediation
- Basement mold remediation
- Bathroom mold removal
How Do Attic Mold Removal Efforts Begin in Penacook Properties?
Homes can often be heavily damaged by developing mold colonization, primarily in the attic of Penacook homes. Larger institutions like the Merrimack Valley High School and the Penacook Community Center require similar mold remediation tactics when buildings of this size become threatened by mold. Attic spaces can remain moist and damp for long periods without sufficient ventilation and airflow, allowing mold to develop. Mold removal can include surface treatment like abrasive cleaning and dry ice blasting but can also include controlled demolition when other options have been exhausted.
Does Black Mold Require Reconstruction of Penacook Homes?
The presence of black mold can be intimidating to homeowners, often requiring controlled demolition and replacement. Our general contractor license allows us to perform these phases like reconstruction and repair without homeowners seeking subcontractors.

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 - (603) 225-2825
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 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
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
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
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 Penacook, NH 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.
