The Advantages Of Hiring SERVPRO To Remediate Mold Damage In Your Amherst Home
How To Remove Mold Damage From Your Amherst Property
Notice a musty odor or visible growth spots in and around your home? These could be signs of the proliferation of mold spores and can cause health effects. Unfortunately, the noticeable signs of mold microbes tend to be symptoms of a larger problem. Moisture can build up from a variety of sources in a household. Moist and humid environments provide the ideal conditions for mold growth which can start growing in as little as 24 to 72 hours.
Homes that have mold damage in Amherst can benefit from rapid assessment and treatment. The tell-tale signs could include a distinct musty odor in certain areas of the house as well as visible staining or soiling on your possessions. Sometimes, mold can grow in areas of the house you rarely visit such as an attic or crawlspace for several months before spreading into other areas of the home.
A professional remediation service not only removes the surface signs of mold but also gets to the route of the problem, preventing recurring issues. SERVPRO technicians are trained to recognize and treat mold using a range of equipment. Valuable fabrics or clothing can be sent to an external center for restoration and permanent structure like paneling or softwoods can be treated by soda blasting; a soft abrasive method that uses compressed air to clear away mold without damaging the structure.
One of the priorities in mold remediation is finding the source of mold. Spores expand rapidly but, for a proper restoration, need to be traced back to initial growth spot. This can be caused by a leaking pipe, heavy rainfall or issues with structural integrity in older homes. By treating the source with anti-microbial sprays and reducing humidity levels, SERVPRO can lower the likelihood of mold returning after a service.
Musty odors can be dealt with using foggers. At SERVPRO we use equipment with odor neutralizing chemicals to remove unpleasant smells around the home. In large scale services, we have the option to bring in ozone generators to permanently alter the surrounding atmosphere and remove odor particles for good.
