Why You Should Choose SERVPRO to Handle Your Property's Mold
Before we begin to tell you why you should choose SERVPRO to handle your property's mold, let's start with what mold is. Mold is a living organism belonging to the kingdom fungi. Due to mold not capable of making its food, it has to gain its nutrients from other substances. Mold is composed of thread-like filaments called hyphae. The hyphae then form a conglomerate called a mycelium. While mold itself has no mobility, its hyphae can grow quite large. Why should you choose SERVPRO to handle your property's mold? We can give you two reasons:

Step 3: Mold Containment
SERVPRO professionals will use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold in your house.
Step 4: Air Filtration
Their specialized filtration equipment allows their professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. They utilize powerful "air scrubbers" and HEPA vacuums to prevent these mold spores' spread while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Belongings
SERVPRO professionals will clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the mold damage level, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may need removal. Restoration may involve minor repairs such as painting or installing new carpet, or it may entail major repairs such as reconstructing various areas or rooms in a home or business.
