Mold spores can survive starvation, lack of oxygen, and lack of water. Mold spores even survive in outer space. Here on Earth, we control the growth of mold by limiting its exposure to excess moisture or water. We can do nothing to limit the presence of mold spores.

Mold spores are always around, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns consumers not to trust any company claiming to be able to get rid of mold spores. At SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson and SERVPRO of Oro Valley/Marana East, we claim only to:

  1. Mitigate mold damage.
  2. Eliminate active mold colonies.
  3. Find and get rid of the excess water that promotes mold growth.

Call us at 520-760-9352 when you:

  • Notice water damage and need help with remediation (which is most of the time, as remediation is difficult)
  • See or smell mold damage.
  • Suspect there has been excess water for over 24 to 48 hours, so know there is the likelihood of mold growth.

Mold and Mold Damage

The EPA recommends that homeowners hire professional mold mitigation specialists to remediate mold growth if the growth covers more than nine square feet. It requires business owners to hire mold mitigation specialists in that case.

We recommend that you hire a separate team to assess the mold damage before you hire us to mitigate the damage, so you know we are above board in our own assessment of the problem.

More about the Spores:

  • Microscopic
  • Travel through the air (indoors and outdoors)
  • Are on clothing, pet hair, other materials
  • Open when humidity is over 45%

Mold colonies grow quickly because mold eats just about anything, spreading more spores as the colony grows. When mold spreads, it is eating your home and belongings. As the song goes, “Don’t let it grow! Don’t let it grow!”

Mold eats:

  • Paper
  • Cotton
  • Linen
  • Wool
  • Other natural fabrics
  • Human & skin cells
  • Human & pet hair
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Human food
  • Pet food
  • Garbage
  • Wood
  • Plaster
  • Drywall
  • Wallpaper and its glue

Regardless of whether the HVAC is on (and we’re in Arizona, so the likelihood is that the HVAC is on), mold spores have likely traveled through the air vents.

Our teams will:

  • Remove the mold colonies throughout the building.
  • Clean and disinfect all surfaces, including crawl spaces, HVAC, and air vents.
  • Find the source of excess moisture.
  • Help eliminate the moisture to prevent mold’s return.


City ornithologists have learned that hawks and owls watch people to learn which times and places are safest for hunting. “Bird watching” has a new meaning now.
