Why Advanced Training Helps SERVPRO Fix Mold Damage In Your Simsbury Home

Mold colonies present a grave threat to the structure and the occupants of a home necessitating remediation, immediately the problem is identified. Although the spores that form mold are omnipresent, it only takes roughly 24 to 48 hours for colonies to start developing. It might take longer to notice because growth mostly starts in concealed sections. Highly trained restoration professionals can help you deal with a mold problem smoothly by helping locate hidden colonies and using the right techniques to remove them.

Locating all the areas affected by mold damage in your Simsbury home is essential for effective remediation. Different approaches can help locate mold colonies, including checking familiar hotspots such as the area around windowsills, sinks, and enclosed spaces such as crawl spaces around your property. An industrial hygienist can also take air samples and perform a lab test to confirm the presence of mold. Our SERVPRO technicians also use advanced moisture detection equipment such as thermal cameras to check for hidden pockets of wetness that can lead to mold development.

The procedures used for mold removal can disturb debris and settled spores spreading them to other sections of your home. Taking steps to prevent this helps in the overall remediation process. Our SERVPRO technicians can help prevent this by setting up airlock barrier zipper chambers to contain the affected areas. We then pre-clean contents such as furniture, before moving them or storing them safely in on-site storage pods.

Effective mold remediation requires cleaning and removal of materials affected massively by mold colonies, especially if such materials are porous. Cleaning can involve damp wiping or vacuuming the affected surface among other procedures. Removing damaged materials requires controlled teardown to reach all the affected areas without causing too much damage to the property. Our SERVPRO technicians HEPA vacuum the affected area to remove loose mold debris. We also run a negative air fan when tearing down materials such as drywall, insulation, or any other building material heavily damaged by mold colonies.

It is easier to deal with mold infestations when you have a highly trained team assisting you. Call SERVPRO of The Farmington Valley at (860) 675-4500 to help you restore your property to its preloss state. Combining our excellent skills with advanced tools helps deal with any situation, “Like it never even happened.”
