Mold Removal in Minneapolis
Unchecked water damage of any kind can cause hazardous mold infestations, leading to everything from common allergies to breathing problems. If sudden leaks and puddles aren’t dried thoroughly, different species can grow under floors and behind walls. And by the time you finally find the outbreak, it could be made even worse if you try to remove it on your own.
You can rely on 911 Restoration of Minneapolis to take care of any mold that’s spreading through your home or business.

We start off with a free visual inspection for property owners, thoroughly checking the structure from top to bottom. It’s not uncommon for mold to grow in more than one location in the same structure, so we make sure we catch everything before it gets worse. Once we identify the type of mold growing, we work carefully to remove it and repair any remaining water damage in your home or business.
All of our dedicated mold remediation techs are IICRC certified and know this area extremely well. This means that they can not only clean up and repair any form of water damage and lingering mold, but they also know how to prepare for whatever the climate in Minneapolis might bring.
How Dangerous Could a Mold Outbreak Be?
It’s important to remember that different types of mold can spread in different environments. For example, alternaria is bred in dry and windy outdoor environments, while chaetomium grows in damp and humid conditions indoors. Most commonly, mold spores can spread through air conditioning vents, cling to fibers and fabrics, and permanently damage wood and drywall.
Since Minneapolis and Saint Paul experience hot and humid summers, unrepaired leaks and flooding create breeding grounds for mold outbreaks. Most types aren’t incredibly harmful, but they can lead to allergic reactions such as sneezing, coughing, and rashes. However, the more toxic types, such as stachybotrys, could potentially cause severe respiratory ailments, hemorrhages, and internal organ damage if you have a weakened immune system.
While studies have shown that indoor mold can’t kill you outright, the more variants can permanently damage your health. And, if left untreated and unmanaged, these resulting illnesses can eventually lead to death. So it’s extremely important to remove any mold that you find, especially if you or someone you know has a preexisting condition.
Bleach, hydrogen peroxide, or distilled white vinegar (separately, not mixed) are your best options to remove mold from your property. Yet if you’re unsure of the type of mold you found, or fear that cleaning it may make things worse, get the professionals on board to take care of the outbreak. And if you suspect that the mold could be dangerous, leave the property immediately and get to a safe location before calling 911 Restoration of Minneapolis.
