SERVPRO Performs Professional Mold Damage Remediation in Durham Homes and Businesses

Many surfaces can get cleaned for reuse after professional Durham mold remediation. However, one requirement is that the article needs to be able to withstand the cleaning method. Porous objects such as sheetrock are poorly suited for the deep cleaning necessary to eradicate visible colonies. 

SERVPRO brings professional mold damage mitigation to Durham properties. The interior of sheetrock with visible mold growth is often too deteriorated for any restoration. The best outcome, in this case, comes from removing the building materials and bringing the interior humidity levels under 50%, which makes life unsustainable for mold growth. 

The technicians carefully inspect the property to determine the reason for the mold infestation. Mold is a symptom of a more significant issue at work within the property. Frequently seen problems that can lead to an infestation include unresolved water damage from leaks or poor ventilation retaining humid air instead of expelling it.

  • Sponge blasting on surfaces that cannot tolerate soda blasting removal
