Our Mold Remediation Services are Effective in Controlling Microbial Populations in Amherst Houses

SERVPRO invests significant amounts of energy, time, and money into training our employees and supplying the most effective equipment to put into our Green Fleet. We do this because we want to serve the people in Amherst to the best of our ability, effectively cleaning and mitigating homes from the effects of disasters.  

One way we do this in Amherst is by using highly effective mold remediation techniques. We want our customers to know that while there is no such thing as complete elimination of microbes from a house, we always do our utmost best to reduce the majority of microbes inside their home. Because spores regularly enter the house, controlling their ability to grow is what becomes crucial in our power to control the life cycle of mold within the confines of the home.  

To control mildew and mold, we must control their water intake, and the most effective way to do this is to eliminate it from your home. Without water, microbes become dormant and no longer release spores, nor spread in size. We must consider all sources of water, including condensation. Microbes do not require much water at all to become a problem.  

After our infrared thermal imaging cameras reveal damp areas and possible sources of moisture, we eliminate these and then dry the area. This step prevents future mold from surviving if newly released spores settle in the area.  

We then remove mold-covered materials, but only if we determine these have become damaged. When mold only covers the surface, we can clean these things instead. It is always more cost effective to restore structures through cleaning than it is to replace those same items. It also takes significantly less time, allowing us to finish more quickly that if we needed to wait for replacement materials to arrive.  

Before remediating contaminated areas of any mold damage, we build a temporary chamber to contain the microbes in the area. As we work, this machine runs continuously, creating a negative pressure, all while whisking dirty air through the device and then outside a window.  

Once done, we clean the area with HEPA-filtered vacuums. These trap any dust, mold, spores or other debris and leave the area safe, “Like it never even happened.” We apply a quick-drying liquid antimicrobial agent to kill off any residual microbes and prevent any newly settled ones from ever finding a supportive environment again.
