Leave Mold Remediation to the Experts at SERVPRO

7/16/2020 (Permalink)

With monsoon season comes moisture which can cause mold in your home. Should you see signs of mold in your Phoenix home, contact SERVPRO of East Phoenix immediately to take care of the situation before it gets worse. Homeowners may want to address the situation themselves, but it is best to leave mold remediation to the experts.

Not all mold damage is visible

One of the most important reasons to call a professional mold remediation service for mold damage to your home is that the problem cannot be solved without professional intervention. The area must be dried, cleaned, sanitized, and possible repainted or rebuilt if the mold infestation was well-developed. Even when mold appears to be gone, it is not, and if not cleaned thoroughly, spores can continue to grow and spread to other parts of the home causing more damage. 

Why cleaning mold on your own is not enough

Trying to eliminate mold damage yourself can be detrimental to the home, rather than helpful. Even if you remove all visible signs of mold in your home, it is almost impossible to eradicate airborne spores and hidden pockets of growth without advanced tools. We use advanced moisture detection tools to identify patches of mold behind walls and surfaces and air scrubbers to filter as many spores out of the environment as possible. Also keep in mind that you really cannot remove mold altogether. Since microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors, and outdoors, removing all mold from a home or business is impossible. Remediation is what keeps mold growth at bay.

Moldy smells indicate a problem

After mold has been addressed, the musty odor it causes can remain. These odors take years to leave your home on their own. SERVPRO technicians use industrial-strength chemical fogging machines to neutralize odor molecules, even if they are embedded deep within the walls and floors of your home. When mold appears in your home, SERVPRO professionals will:

  • Inspect and assess mold damage
  • Contain the mold
  • Execute air filtration
  • Remove mold and mold-infested materials, if applicable
  • Clean mold-impacted content

There is more to cleaning mold than simply wiping it off surfaces, which is why mold remediation is best left to the professionals of SERVPRO. SERVPRO of East Phoenix is the Valley's leading provider of mold damage remediation services. For our expert help with mold in your home, give us a call at (602) 507-6163. We will work with you to address your mold issues.
