Benefits of Mold Remediation
Excess moisture in your home, whether from a flood, leaky pipe, or high humidity, can lead to mold growth. Once mold grows, it requires a company such as SERVPRO of South Albany County to safely and completely remove mold and mold spores and prevent its return.
Due to heavy rains and high humidity, Albany County homes are at risk for excess interior moisture. This leads to the growth of mold and mildew in the home. Basements, attics, and crawl spaces are especially susceptible to mold, though it can occur in any area where there is dampness or moisture. Mold remediation ensures that mold is safely and completely removed from an area while also preventing further growth.
Remediation is a multi-step process that requires a certified and licensed professional such as SERVPRO of South Albany County. It is not safe to attempt as a do-it-yourself task. We can test the areas to see where mold spores are located and what kind of mold is growing to best combat the problem. Once that is determined, technicians seal off the area with heavy-duty sheeting and duct tape to prevent mold from escaping. Then, we remove all objects that can not be clean, such as porous items like drywall that has mold grown all the way through.
After sealing and removing items from the home, work can begin. Technicians use air filtration and professional-grade cleaning agents to start the process. We scrub and clean the area off of non-porous items such as wood and tile. The detergents used are effective and environmentally-friendly and safe for homes and businesses. Once clean, technicians dry the area using fans and dehumidifiers. We also search for the cause of the mold growth if not already treated.
Mold remediation will ensure your Albany County home is safe and healthy for you and your family. If your home has had water damage, whether minor or major, or there are damp or humid areas, it is a good idea to call a professional company to test and see if remediation is required.
