Solving the challenges inherent with a mold contamination can be difficult, but with the professional help of IICRC certified owner Zack Cohen of 911 Restoration Ventura and the mold removal Ventura specialists at your service, you have nothing to worry about from fungus.
Many times people think that after a water damage event that they can simply mop up and everything will be fine. Among the issues that can cause mold to start growing may include:
- Excess moisture
- Lack of ventilation and insufficient insulation
- Roof leaks
- Pipe bursts
“This couldn’t be further from the truth,” Zack explains. “Mold contaminations can come from extremely small amounts of water left behind after an event. Even the little bit of water that gets underneath the base shoe of the wall can cause a colony to grow almost overnight.”
Mold and fungus have been on the earth for millennia and in that time they have evolved to be able to adapt to almost any environment. This makes eradicating mold a challenge, but it is one that Zack and his teams of mold removal Ventura experts are prepared and trained to take on any time you need it.
“We can always arrive within 45 minutes of a call for help, even when mold is the culprit,” Zack explains.

What Is Mold and How Does It Grow?
With years of experience in the field, Zack and his mold removal Venture specialists have come to know almost everything there is to about mold and fungus.
Their experiences have taught them that mold can grow with very little input from the outside world. In fact, water damage doesn’t even have to occur for there to be a mold outbreak.
“A poorly ventilated room with high humidity is a prime source of the mold contaminations that we get called out on,” Zack explains.
Mold will grow almost anywhere with a reasonably porous surface and a minute amount of water to spur the initial stages of growth. After a mold colony has taken hold, the remaining moisture in the air is often enough to support a colony indefinitely.
“Once mold starts growing, it can be very difficult to prevent further contamination as the spores from a colony are spread in the air with the slightest of disturbances,” Zack explains. “This is why we use vapor barriers and all the latest and greatest air purifying technology when we do mold work in a home.”
Since mold spores can spread so easily and take root with next to nothing in the way of assistance, it is imperative that if you find mold in your home that you contact dedicated, trustworthy and certified professionals like Zack and his mold removal Ventura technicians with 911 Restoration Ventura to take on the challenges for you.

When he got in there he noticed a huge mold contamination that must have been there since the first sewage incident.”
