SERVPRO Wants To Restore Your Stateline Home
Why You Need SERVPRO For Mold Remediation In Your Stateline Home
At this time, mold is probably the last issue on the minds of folks in Stateline. However, while families are spending a lot of time together inside, it is important to make sure air ducts are cleaned and mold spores are not growing where it is nice and warm, endangering your family's health. While it may be too cold outside for many things to thrive, with enough moisture inside, mold can grow.
That is why many Stateline residents need mold remediation. Why call SERVPRO instead of another agency? No other business trains and equips its restoration teams to handle mold as we do. From certified inspectors to the latest tools for blasting mold out of a home, our company brings the best to every home or business building.
To determine the extent of a mold colony, our inspectors use air content meters to augment their visual inspection. The meters allow us to trace mold behind walls without drilling holes or compromising the drywall panels of the home’s interior.
Finding the extent of the colony’s growth also gives us the origin point. That is where we find the source of moisture that allowed the inert spores to expand and grow. After finding it, team members spray the area with an anti-fungal agent to kill the spores and then clean up both the mold and the water source.
In many cases, SERVPRO technicians can clean and remove mold using the anti-fungal cleaners and either wiping down or scraping the mold off affected surfaces. When the mold goes undetected over a long period, the mold layer can become very thick and penetrate surfaces, even the wood beams in ceiling and roof supports.
If that happens, team members use a new method called soda blasting to remove the mold. They use a specially designed high-pressure spray device to force sodium bicarbonate into a concentrated stream. It can clear out even deeply penetrated mold spores without compromising the integrity of building supports.
Regardless of how far mold has grown into your home or business, SERVPRO of Carson City / Douglas County / South Lake Tahoe / Lyon & Storey Counties has the training and equipment to clean and remove it. If you have seen mold or detect that distinctive, ‘musty’ odor, call us today at (775) 588-2355 to schedule an inspection.
