Remediation of Mold Damage in Harvard Residences
Team SERVPRO Arrives With Mold Detection Tools to Isolate the Cause of the Mold Infestation in Your Home
When moisture exists in an enclosed area in your Harvard home for more than a day or two, microbes begin overgrowing. Before they form a colony large enough for us to see, individual ones remain unnoticed. Singly, they are too small to devastate a home. The typical home's environment holds mold and mildew, but ordinarily dry conditions keep problems from developing.
Homes in the area with visible mold damage in Harvard most likely have elevated humidity levels. When we visit a home to inspect for mold infestation, one of the first steps we take is locating where any water leaks exist. It is often quite easy to repair leaks within your plumbing system. Other locations, such as saturated ground in crawlspaces, may require more extensive measures to solve the situation. However, in many cases, installation of a dehumidifier keeps moisture at appropriate levels.
Other aspects of restoration work addressing mold damage and mold remediation can seem drastic, but without them, it can be almost impossible to complete the necessary work. Tearing out walls and other permeable materials, or removing tub and shower liners to reveal microbial colonies comprise a sizable segment of remediation.
Because mold can cause health effects in sensitive individuals, either from prolonged exposure over time or in large amounts at once, SERVPRO technicians wear personal protection equipment, including masks and full suits. Our gear also prevents the spread of mold from the area undergoing remediation to other, uncontaminated areas, within your home. Elimination of mold within any home remains an impossible goal, but we take the responsibility of containing mold very seriously.
After we complete the removal part of remediation, restoring walls and ceilings make your home look “Like it never even happened.” Even so, mold can grow in other locations that also require remediation. Attics, garages, crawl spaces, and basements can harbor large mold colonies, primarily if your family rarely uses these locations. Earning certifications from the IICRC in mold remediation and related fields, we arrive at your home ready for any degree of mold damage and infestation your home might hold.
The skilled technicians at SERVPRO of Fitchburg-Leominster want to provide the services your home needs when mold damage appears. Mold can grow anywhere in your home and appear in different colors. All varieties call for remediation. Call us at (978) 537-1500 for our 24-hour services.
