Restoration Services are Critical in Handling Mold Damage in Melrose
SERVPRO Can Counter Mold Damage in Your Melrose House
The air contains mold spores, and they only grow when they get the right conditions of nutrients, moderate temperatures, and moisture. Mold can grow anywhere on furnishings and interior surfaces of a building, eventually causing damage to the materials.
Allowing the mold to grow and spread in your house can cause physical damage to the structure of the building and the contents found within. You need to contact SERVPRO to counter the mold damage in your Melrose residence. We offer a swift and cost-effective remediation process. Our mold damage restoration process involves steps like repairing the water problem, isolating the contaminated area, and dust suppression.
We categorize the damages into:
- Damage to the structural components and the building materials.
- Damage to personal property.
- Damage to ventilation and heating systems.
Mold feeds on organic matter and breaks it down, which might lead to serious structural damage. Therefore, our SERVPRO team can remove infested walls, paper backing, insulation, carpeting, and other materials. We pretest all the affected materials to determine what we can restore and what to dispose of, with close adherence to EPA rules.
We can use disposable wipes to clean non-porous moldy surfaces and scrub them using detergent solutions. Our SERVPRO team can also use air movers and desiccant dehumidifiers to dry the indoors. In a desiccant dehumidifier, moist air gets into the process air inlets and passes through a rotor full of a silica gel substance, which attracts water. The gel is a drying agent, and it captures water from the air, causing the air to dry.
Upon attachment to porous materials, mold becomes very hard to remove or clean off, so we dispose of the affected materials. Mold can also enter the ventilation and heating systems which are usually hard to access for cleaning and inspection. Our SERVPRO team can thoroughly clean the HVAC systems to prevent the transfer of the spores to other areas.
Letting mold remain in your home for a long time is escalating a problem requiring swift action. Contact SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose at (781)665-6396 for effective restoration.
