Mold Damage Removal Services in Durham

9/30/2017 (Permalink)

Whether mold is visible or you just smell its prescence, you know it's time to call SERVPRO for remediation services.

Technicians From SERVPRO Begin the Mold Remediation Process by an Investigation to Deduce the Source of the Damage

Mold growth can become a serious problem in Durham in the presence of moisture. It can spread throughout your property in just 48 hours, leading to various health effects and structural damage to your home. Any visible mold growth above 10 SF (about 3' x 3') requires a certified mold remediation company to eliminate following IICRC standards and guidelines.
If you have a mold situation in your Durham home, SERVPRO can safely and effectively reverse the mold damage. As mold remediation professionals, we use industry-standard tools and equipment and apply systematic practices to eradicate mold growth on any surface. Once we locate the mold and treat it, we also perform a complete water damage remediation to prevent future growth when we leave.
Mold removal preserves the structural integrity of your home and protects the health of your family. The process also helps control the damp, musty smell that comes with mold. Since moisture is a vital part of mold growth, SERVPRO technicians assume the responsibility of cleaning up excess water in the house as well. Failure to fix the moisture problem could cause the mold to return again, even after cleaning the area thoroughly.
Given that mold is a living organism that deeply integrates into materials for survival, the best way to deal with porous items is disposing of them. For nonporous materials, SERVPRO mold remediation specialists can disinfect the surfaces using antimicrobial cleaners. We also have effective sealants that can make the areas more water resistant and, subsequently, more mold-proof. It is best to have your air conditioning and heating systems professionally cleaned too.
Safety is important in mold damage control. As such, SERVPRO professionals always wear waterproof gloves during the cleanup process and advise occupants not to touch moldy items with bare hands. We use respiratory protection in most mold remediation situations to avoid inhalation, which may cause certain health effects. The reconstruction process begins after removing all mold-contaminated materials and then replacing them with clean, non-contaminated ones.
Mold damage remediation requires trained and experienced personnel to ensure clean indoor air for your family. As a trusted and experienced restoration company in your community, SERVPRO of North Durham is already nearby and ready to respond to your emergency. We have an extensive stock of resources for dealing with large restoration projects. Call us today (919) 467-0880.
