Why Call SERVPRO to Handle Mold Cleanup?

One of the key factors to handling mold within any home or business, mainly when located in ceiling cavities or behind walls, is having all the right tools and processes. When you call SERVPRO to handle your mold issue, you can expect the following:

  • Remove dry spore clusters and unsalvageable materials for safe local disposal.
  • Implementation of doorway, window, and duct sealing with the help of poly sheeting and negative air pressure to keep tiny mold spores from spreading into unaffected rooms of your building.
  • HEPA filtration air scrubbers help remove airborne particulates and reduce internal air pressure, making it difficult for spores to migrate into other areas.
  • Relative humidity and moisture control using water removal services and drying with the help of dehumidifiers and air movers after extraction.

Odor Control is Paramount in Any Mold-Related Projects

SERVPRO technicians have access to countless products and equipment at our warehouse that help us handle all restorations.

We perform odor control in each area after mold spores are cleanup up to bring your home or business back to pre-contamination levels. We do this with the help of:

  • Odor counteractant granules, pellets, or beads that work to pull out and absorb malodors while leaving a pleasant scent behind.
  • Ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers use solvent and water-based solutions to handle mold smells at the particle level.

Let Us Handle Mold Restoration with Controlled Demolition

Once we determine which materials are no longer salvageable, our team uses controlled demolition to remove and replace them with all-new materials. This deconstruction may include new drywall, trim, carpeting, ceiling tiles, flooring, subfloor, etc.
