Mold refers to fungi that grow in the form of multicellular thread-like structures called hyphae. Mold can be found in damp building materials where it often appears like stains and comes in a variety of colors. A musty smell is an indication of microbial growth even when there is no visible growth. If mold is allowed to grow in homes or offices it can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Some molds such as the Dry Rot Fungus and Serpula lacrymans, are highly destructive.
At Luce Recovery Services we use a number of removal techniques including specialty mold cleaners, wet vacuuming, HEPA vacuuming, damp wiping, and removing and discarding damaged materials, depending on the material and severity of contamination. A comprehensive approach is far superior than simply spraying the mold. We will NEVER cover up mold by just spraying chemicals and painting over it. Because mold often grows as a result of elevated moisture, we dry and dehumidify the structure to prevent growth. Even when mold and fungal spores are killed, without physical removal, these methods do not eliminate the allergenic or toxigenic properties. We’ll also clean and sanitize the entire affected area or room.
It only takes a small water leak, moisture intrusion or even excess humidity for mold to form in your Jacksonville home or business. Mold can spread quickly through the property in as little as 24-48 hours. Molds release small “spores” into the air. So, when mold grows indoors, the number of mold spores and fragments is usually higher indoors than it is outdoors. These spores are small enough that people can actually inhale them deep into the lungs. Inhalation of spores poses risk of developing respiratory problems. With the exception of winter months mold spores are always present outdoors.
Mold can produce allergens, irritants, and toxic airborne spores that have the potential to cause harmful health effects. Certain types of mold are dangerous to be in contact with, so it is urgent that you call a professional. We respond immediately, and can begin work right away.
If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your contaminated areas. We monitor the air quality throughout the job to ensure that there is no cross-contamination.

Luce Recovery Services will check out your crawlspace, attic, bathroom and any other areas with visible mold to determine the source and scope of the problem as well as identify, measure, and track hidden moisture and mold. After the mold inspection is done, we can begin the cleanup process.
The contaminated area usually consists of a light wood frame with plastic sheeting stretched over with a slit entry for the workers with a covering flap on the outside for small areas. Inside the containment area, all openings such as air vents and doors must be sealed with plastic to prevent spreading contaminants to other parts of the building.
During mold cleaning and the removal of mold contaminated materials, Jacksonville mold damage specialists are required for health reasons to wear personal protective equipment while working within the containment area. Depending on the size and severity of the job, this could include full face hepa respirators, gloves, and full body suits including foot coverings, with all gaps around the ankles and wrists sealed, to prevent them from tracking spores through the house when they leave.
