Spring Mold Problems & How to Fix Them

The temperatures are finally starting to rise here in Chicagoland, signaling the start of spring just around the corner. Unfortunately, with extreme temperatures comes an increased risk 

of mold growth. Not only can mold and mildew wreak havoc on your home’s structure, but it can be a severe risk to your indoor air quality and your family’s health as well. 


Mold can be difficult to remove once it’s taken hold, so it’s important to deal with any problems as soon as they arise. At ARC Insulation, we offer mold remediation services, and as building science experts, we can also help prevent it from coming back.


Eliminating Mold in Chicagoland Homes

Mold thrives in wet and warm environments, which makes certain areas of your home more susceptible to its growth, like your attic, basement, kitchen, and bathrooms. Your home will also be vulnerable to mold over the winter. If you’ve noticed signs of mold in your home, like musty smells or condensation inside, give our team a call for reliable solutions that include inspection, remediation, and prevention. 

At ARC Insulation, we have tried and true mold remediation techniques that have helped us effectively get rid of mold problems at the source for more than 30 years. Our process consists of:

  • Determining the size of the affected areas with a mold inspection
  • Diagnosing the cause of the mold growth and proposing a solution
  • Isolating contaminated areas to stop the spreading
  • Removing any contaminated materials, including insulation
  • Thoroughly cleaning all affected areas with high-quality, safe products
