Cleaning Mold from Porous Surfaces in Amherst Homes Can Be Difficult--Call on SERVPRO for Remediation

Varying Steps for Different Mold Infestations Is Key to a Great Remediation

When SERVPRO technicians begin to remove mold spores, growth, and material from your home, they must go through a lengthy and intensive process to ensure that they do the job right. Without thorough work, the mold may still run rampant throughout the home and require additional treatments in the future. We make it a point to properly clean up mold damage in your Amherst home the first time through a multifaceted, complex, and carefully planned approach. While each situation may have different details, we usually must treat an infestation in these three ways.

Air Filtration
One of the most crucial parts of the SERVPRO process of mold damage remediation in Amherst is air filtration. Most mature colonies release millions of microscopic spores into the air that can circulate inside your home and spread to other rooms. While removing every one of these spores is impossible, "scrubbing" all but a few is a standard process in many mold damage cases. We utilize HEPA vacuums and other high-end industrial tools to eliminate as many airborne spores as possible, as quickly as possible. The use of negative air pressure equipment greater enhances this effort.
Removing Mold from Surfaces
Mold attached to a surface in your home such as a floor, wall, or ceiling must be approached differently from a fungus on movable objects. Here, we cannot usually move the surface in question, and must instead utilize specialized treatments and tools such as high-powered UV lights to kill the colony and safely remove it from a surface. Once all visible growth is gone, we then sanitize the area to kill off spores still in the area.
Objects and Furniture
Objects that can be moved and carefully treated are often subjected to a different treatment regimen than structural damage sites. Our technicians are trained in many different cleaning techniques to give different objects ideal care and attention. In some cases, we may also bring in a specialist to evaluate and work on sensitive objects such as artwork.
