Dealing With Mold Damage in Tennessee
SERVPRO Certified Technicians Remediate Mold Damage Professionally and Safely
Water has to be removed quickly when flooding occurs. Even when the visible effects, such as standing water and warped flooring, has been eliminated and replaced, there is the hazard of mold spores. Please continue reading.
Mold damage in Bloomingdale homes is caused not just by pools of standing water, but in spaces, such as behind drywall, which has not been dried out properly. If a previously flooded area isn't taken care of, then mold will grow quickly. SERVPRO has the expertise and the equipment to help prevent breeding grounds for mold and remove it if needed.
If you're concerned about earlier flooding, we can inspect your home to determine if there may be any areas that need cleaning or may just require drying and dehumidification to prevent the growth of mold. If our inspectors discover any fungi, we will test further to see how far it has grown. In cases of obvious mold patches, we can immediately start the remediation process. Once the area of infestation is determined, our technicians have a variety of anti-fungal and anti-microbial cleaners at their disposal to scrub the area clean.
To make sure the process is thorough, your heating and air system will need to be scrubbed using specialized equipment and anti-fungal product filled foggers to destroy any trace of the infestation within the air ducts. All of the air filters will be replaced as well. If the source of the mold is within the walls, then that section of drywall or framing will need to be removed. If there is no mold, but an excess amount of moisture is discovered, our technicians will use a series of dehumidifiers and exhaust fans to clear out the wetness. These same units are also used to remove mold spores from your home by blowing outside using a technique called negative pressure. HEPA filtration systems are also used by our SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) to restore your home to its pre-loss condition "Like it never even happened."
With the weather like it is in Sullivan and surrounding counties, excessive moisture and humidity is almost the norm. If you are concerned about possible mold damage to your home, contact us here at SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol today at (423) 245-5552.
