What happens when a mold infestation has gone through your home’s drywall and worked it’s way into the structural framing? The mold needs to be removed from the studs. The only effective way to do this is by soda blasting the studs. This process uses extremely high pressure to essentially pressure clean the studs using baking soda. The process is dusty but the end result is perfectly clean like new studs and structural building materials. Check out the video of John McCormic demonstrating the mold soda blasting process below.
Mold Removal Clearwater Beach. A Clearwater Beach homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a mold removal project in their Clearwater Beach home. Mold can and will form in areas with water leaks or high humidity. This Clearwater Beach homeowner had a problem with a roof leak which saturated some ceilings and walls in their home. Over time this water damage if not dried properly will lead to mold growth and possibly black mold. Once mold growth occurs it is important to remove the mold as soon as possible in order to avoid the mold growth to continue to spread to other areas of the house. You cannot simply paint over mold, or wipe the area down with bleach once mold starts to form large colonies. Small amounts of mold located on grout lines in showers can be cleaned with household cleaner. Mold that is growing in ceilings, walls or floors must be removed properly with the right machinery and containment in place.

Mold Removal Palm Harbor Kitchen. A Palm Harbor couple contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a very intense mold removal project in their kitchen in Palm Harbor, Florida. The couple had to replace a faulty dishwasher after noticing it leaking water onto the floor. The dishwasher dripped a small puddle of water on the floor every time it ran through a cycle. Over time, this water began seeping into the wallboard or drywall behind the cabinets in their Palm Harbor kitchen. This water leak created a large mold colony to form and grow behind the cabinets. Once the couple removed the dishwasher, they were faced with a very strong musty smell. A strong musty smell is a common symptom of mold once it begins to colonize and reproduce. As you can see in the pictures below, this mold removal project will require the remodel of this Palm Harbor kitchen.

Mold Removal Odessa. A homeowner in Odessa contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to visible mold that could be seen along the edge of one of their baseboards. With our state of the art infrared leak inspection equipment we were able to locate the source of the water to a sprinkler that was spraying on the exterior wall. The water was leaking through a crack in the stucco and finding its way into the property. Over time, this moisture saturated baseboards, drywall and carpet. Once Florida building materials get wet, mold can start to form in as little as 24 hours. As you can see in the pictures below, the symptoms of the problem showing on the outside of the baseboard were just a small portion of the work that needs to be completed to remove the mold from the property entirely. Just because you can’t see all of the mold doesn’t mean that there isn’t mold or black mold growing in areas that you cannot see. Mold is caused by water leaks, sewage leaks and rain water or water that finds a way into the property from the exterior.

A Tampa homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a large amount of black mold found in their rental property. The rental property has been on the market unoccupied for quite some time. When the previous tenants moved out, the electricity to the house was shut off. When there is no AC system running, black mold has the perfect environment in which to form. Black mold and other types of mold grow when there is moisture or humidity present. Mold feeds on moisture and building materials such as drywall, carpet and wood flooring. Once moisture is present, mold can grow and feed on just about any material inside of your Tampa home. Once you see signs of mold, it’s very important to contact a team of professionals to ensure the mold is removed correctly. Mold can easily return under the right conditions if the proper mold removal procedures aren’t taken.
A Brandon homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold removal project. The Brandon homeowner had a sewage backup occur when they were away from their property. The sewage backup caused the walls 2 feet up from the floor to become saturated with water. When the Brandon homeowner arrived to find the mess, they simply cleaned all the sewage off of the floor. When walls and studs become saturated with moisture, this provides a prime breeding ground for mold and black mold growth. As you can see in the pictures below, we had to remove the drywall and clean all of the wall studs in order to ensure the mold was completely removed from this project. Once black mold begins to grow, it will grow inside of walls where you cannot see it. With our infrared water inspection equipment we are able to see through walls where moisture hides. In Brandon, hidden moisture usually means hidden mold.
A Tampa homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold removal project. The Tampa homeowner was out of town for a few months dealing with a family emergency. When the Tampa homeowner arrived back home, she was amazed at what had happened to her beautiful home. The AC condensate line clogged and leaked water into the main living room of the house. Over time, the AC unit stopped working and the humidity inside the home began to rise. Once mold has moisture and building materials it will begin to grow and thrive. As you can see in the pictures below, the black mold grew on walls, floors, ceilings and even on the children’s toys. This will be an extensive black mold removal project. Black mold is not only ugly, it can also cause adverse health effects in humans and pets.

An Indian Rocks Beach resident contacted us in regards to black mold which was found in their bathroom. After discovering a small plumbing leak on a water line to the toilet, the homeowner discovered a large amount of black mold located in the walls of this Indian Rocks Beach condo. Once the discovery of black mold was found, the Indian Rocks Beach owner realized it was more than they could clean up themselves. Since the owner frequently rents out the condo to out of town guests, they wanted to be sure they were providing a safe mold free environment for their guests. They have hired us to perform black mold removal services in their Indian Rocks Beach condo. Once black mold begins to grow in areas that it cannot be seen, it can quickly multiply and affect other areas of the indoor environment. If you see mold or black mold growing your property, we highly suggest you have it removed by a team of licensed professionals to ensure that it is taken care of properly.
A Brandon home accumulated a large amount of black mold after sitting vacant for several months. The Brandon Florida home you see in the pictures below was foreclosed on several months ago. The previous owners of this Brandon Florida home took the AC system with them when they vacated the property. AC systems in the Tampa Bay area serve two purposes for indoor air quality. The first purpose is to cool the indoor air temperature. The second purpose is to remove humidity from the air of Tampa Bay area homes and businesses. Without the AC unit running, humidity will build up inside of Florida homes. Once the humidity starts building, condensate will form on building materials such as ceilings, walls and floors. This condensate is the perfect food source for black mold. When we entered this home, it appeared that the walls and ceilings were camouflage with all of the mold growth. As you can see in the pictures below, there are many types of species of mold growing in this property in addition to black mold. This home will undergo an extensive black mold removal process.
