Mold problems in Fullerton most commonly happen in the summer and early fall, typically during the summer months when temperatures are at their hottest. Mold problems typically take root in the winter months of January and February when the rain is the heaviest, and then become more obvious and rampant during the hot months of the summer requiring mold removal and mold remediation services.
Fullerton, CA enjoyed rapid growth in the Post World War II years as American veterans chose the Southern Californian city as home thanks to cheap land and a thriving agricultural market. Manufacturing replaced farming over the years as the area became more suburban and less rural. Despite the boon for most of the 20th century, much of the downtown commercial district of Fullerton fell into disrepair in the 1990s. The city is also home to a number of noted colleges, including California State University, Fullerton and Fullerton College, which creates big demand for student housing. The age of the downtown buildings, and the city’s various student rentals, contribute to a steady demand for local mold removal and mold remediation services.
Indoor-Restore offers mold inspection, mold removal and mold remediation services to Fullerton and the greater Los Angeles areas. Before an estimate is made or a project discussed, a mold inspection should be done. We offer Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) testing as part of our mold identification process. Our inspectors may take surface samples of the mold, either through swab, tape or bulk sampling. All results are verified by a third-party laboratory.
If mold is confirmed to be present, we provide a detailed mold removal and mold remediation estimate, explaining all necessary steps and costs to remove the mold, prevent future growth and repair any damage done.

An encapsulant is then applied to wall cavities, studs and other areas where mold has been present. The encapsulant is a paint-like material that repels spores and seals the surface to prevent further moisture and the return of any mold. The entire containment area is then decontaminated, a process that involves a second HEPA sweeping and biocide treatment. The negative air caused by the HEPA ventilation will suck up any air-borne spores.
Finally, samples are collected from the decontaminated area where mold remediation was completed to ensure no spores are present. All final tests are done through a third party lab to verify the authenticity of the results. Once the lab tells us the area is clear, the property owner is issued a Certificate of Clearance certifying the mold has been eradicated. Indoor-Restore guarantees mold will not return for a full 10 years after the mold remediation.
Even before mold becomes a problem, we provide leak detection and repair. In many cases, leaks are invisible, located behind dry wall, insulation, or within air conditioning vents. It takes more than just a spot inspection to locate all potential leaks. Indoor-Restore uses infrared thermal imaging to spot differences in temperature. These temperature differences are then inspected by our technicians to identify water damage or mold growth. Infrared imaging can spot structure damage, moisture problems, and electrical issues.
Mold isn’t just gross. In large enough numbers, spores can be a serious health concern. Mold can cause respiratory problems, especially in infants, who can develop asthma as a result of mold presence. Mold has been known to aggravate allergies. Some people are more sensitive than others. Symptoms of mold exposure include irritated throat, coughing, nasal problems, eye and skin irritation.
