How SERVPRO Combats Mold Damage

How Professionals at SERVPRO Defeat Mold Damage

Mold damage happens naturally worldwide, often with no fault of the homeowner or anyone else. Mold has evolved to be hardy, difficult to remove, and fast growing, causing no small amount of distress for residents afflicted by it. Mold can also be dangerous, with some types potentially causing ill health effects or being hazardous to clean up. It takes quality gear, personnel, and training to be able to effectively handle mold damage, all of which SERVPRO brings to the table. Here's how we combat some of the toughest mold colonies in the field. 

Moisture and Humidity Detectors 

A big part in getting rid of mold damage in Fort Myers is finding and stopping the source of its water. Without some humidity or water, mold can not survive or spread. We use moisture and humidity detectors to find out what's fueling the mold, and how to stop it. If necessary, we can bring in heavy drying and dehumidification equipment to dry out entire rooms at a time. 

Sanitization and Scrubbing 

Critical in any mold remediation process is the personnel involved. SERVPRO technicians are extensively trained on safety and cleanup protocol when dealing with mold, and often have years of experience doing their job. They utilize industrial-grade scrubbers, cleaning equipment, and sanitization equipment to nullify patches of mold growth thoroughly. 

Deodorizing Machines 

We also use heavy deodorization machines when cleaning up mold damage. Mold often releases foul-smelling chemicals and spores, especially in large colonies. We use fogging machines to mask and eliminate these odors on a large scale, and once we're done, you'll never be able to tell there was mold damage in the room by sight or by smell. 

Material Replacement and Restoration 

Sometimes, mold growth may be so bad that we need to replace materials entirely. In this case, we always contact property managers and insurance adjusters before making any serious changes. Regardless, the result is always the same: the mold is gone, and your home looks just as it did before.
