Skilled Mold Remediation with SERVPRO in Malden Generates Reliable Results

Before you know it, a black mold infestation can turn into a significant issue within any Malden home or business. Mold growth may begin due to various causes, including a leaking roof from storms, failed water removal services, plumbing issues like burst pipes, and more. Should you suspect, mold or mildew growing inside your property, calling in the help of skilled professionals for a thorough assessment is the best way to get started. SERVPRO is locally-owned and operated, and we are quick to arrive so that you can get on track for a cleaner, disinfected home or business. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.

Why Not go DIY for Mold Damage in Malden?

Hiring trained, experienced professionals are the best course of action. One is that DIY alone could worsen the problem or not provide expected results. These are a few essential things to remember when it comes to mold remediation:

  • Microscopic mold spores are everywhere, and there are countless types of mold in our environment.
  • Given the right temperature, a rise in moisture levels, and an organic food source like wood, paper, drywall, etc., mold can thrive and colonize.
  • Proper mitigation and mold cleanup are imperative, or they could damage your building, contents, and critical structural elements.

Be Wary when you Hear Claims for Mold Removal

Any product or company offering total mold removal is offering false claims. While you can ensure safe, effective cleaning on surfaces and belongings to remove mold colonies, complete eradication is impossible. It is better to have skilled technicians like our IICRC-certified crew at SERVPRO to tackle the job. We not only come in for thorough cleaning and deodorization, but we also pinpoint the root cause. Fixing the cause of the moisture issue is imperative because failing to do so means that the mold can come right back.

SERVPRO Provides Proven Methods and Industrial-grade Equipment

We arrive at your property with a full selection of EPA-registered antimicrobials, cleaning solutions, and advanced equipment with any mold cleanup call we receive. We determine and monitor all moisture levels, both surface level and sub-surface. Our team works on a detailed mold remediation plan that includes moisture extraction, mold contamination cleanup, and drying. Some of the steps that we follow include:

  • A thorough assessment of your mold development. This scoping involves containing the spores to keep them from moving into unaffected areas of your Malden property with the help of negative pressure and poly sheeting.
  • Humidity control measures help us to halt mold growth. This effort may get done using water extraction with strategically placed dehumidifiers and drying equipment.
  • After the mold impact zone gets dried, our team starts cleanup efforts with the help of vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filtration to capture tiny particles.
  • Each surface then gets detailed cleaning with antimicrobials and disinfectants to eliminate musty odor development and the possibility of future mold growth.

What Happens to Building Materials that are Mold Damaged?

If the mold damage or moisture saturation is severe, we may have to perform controlled demolition to remove and replace some materials. Whatever we deem unsalvageable gets extracted and then disposed of according to local guidelines. This may include carpeting, drywall, trim, flooring, and contents that became fully infested with mold. Trusted area contractors and vendors carry all the work for a finishing touch, “Like it never even happened.”

Efficient Attic Mold Removal Services in Malden Properties

SERVPRO mold sign SERVPRO mold remediation services are top-notch. We are ready at a moment's notice.

SERVPRO Helps Malden Homeowners with Attic Mold Removal

Molds are found everywhere and grow from microscopic spores in the air. With the right conditions, they can sprout quickly, and before you know it, you have a situation in your Malden home. If not managed quickly, roof leaks, condensation, and poor ventilation can cause mold growth. Attics readily provide the things mold needs to grow, like food, oxygen, moisture, and the right temperature. Moisture is one thing you can probably control when it comes to mold. Keeping enclosed areas dry is important in preventing mold damage.

If mold removal services in Malden homes are needed, SERVPROs response is rapid. You can have our technicians at your doorstep shortly after contacting us to evaluate your home. Mold colonies penetrate deeply into the wood, drywall, and carpets, among other surfaces and items they affect. Therefore, you need people with skills and essential equipment to deal with the issue.

How to avoid attic mold

  • Check the roof for leaks
  • Repair missing or loose shingles
  • Inspect the chimney for loose bricks or flashing
  • Proper attic ventilation

Air travels upward toward the attic as household activities like cooking, bathing and showering produce moisture that makes its way to the attic and becomes trapped. Proper roof ventilation is crucial in keeping the attic dry and mold-free.

Attic mold removal

Steps for professional mold remediation

  • Define the scope
  • Build containment
  • Correct moisture problem
  • Clean moldy areas and disinfect

SERVPRO helps you safely remediate mold in the attic by preparing your home for the process. We remove and discard non-salvageable material. We then use dry ice blasting for cleaning. This method is superior as it uses no chemicals, produces no odor, and creates much less of a mess as no water is used. The technique uses dry ice blasting pellets, which go directly from a solid phase to a gas phase and do not add moisture back to the cleaned surface.

SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose provides various services, including mold removal and restoration. We can help with encapsulation and odor removal and take care of your problem with attic mold. Call us at (781) 665-6396. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.

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.

Need Mold Remediation and Structural Repairs in Melrose – Call SERVPRO

Mold spores can be found everywhere outdoors and in our homes in Melrose and surrounding areas. The spores only need moisture, warm temperatures, and an organic food source to germinate and grow a colony that gives off a strong, musty odor. Residents and business owners should take immediate action to curtail the source of moisture and hire mold remediation specialists to deal with mold infestation.

SERVPRO provides mold remediation specialists to assist clients in Melrose with their mold infestations. Mold can cause health effects and structural damage if left in place for long periods. Eliminating the source of moisture and removing organic sources will help reduce colonies forming. However, specialized mold remediation techniques must be used to remove a mold colony once it has been established.

Serious mold infestations may require notification to government agencies, and specific protocols followed during the removal of the colony. Local and state governments may need to be notified. Always act quickly when you first notice the mold growth to avoid further delays.

SERVPRO establishes negative pressure areas to prevent mold spores from contaminating other building areas. Mold is scraped from walls from the top to the bottom to avoid contamination of freshly cleaned areas. We dispose of all materials following local and state-approved procedures to prevent contamination of your property and exposure to residents and employees.

SERVPRO provides the following services to our clients:

  • Mold inspections, remediation, and removal
  • Attic mold removal
  • Black mold damage repairs

Avoid delays in dealing with mold infestations. The longer you wait only increases the potential damage to your home or business and creates uncomfortable conditions for anyone exposed to mold.

How Do Air Movers Help Water Restoration in Malden Homes?

2/1/2022 (Permalink)

air movers servpro logo on semi side SERVPRO provides high-tech air movers to mitigate water damage in Malden homes with rapid evaporation and drying

Drying tools are vital for water restoration companies working in Malden properties

Mitigating water damage emergencies is an intricate process that showcases the experience and hard work of our SERVPRO team. When professionals arrive, we can get to work on removing surface moisture and other mitigative actions that might be necessary. Some of the tools required to help include:

  • Wet vacuums
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Portable electric heaters
  • Submersible pumps

What is an Air Mover?

One of the most used tools of water restoration companies in Malden homes is the air mover. In nearly every application, the air mover uses high-velocity outputs to push warm, dry air into a drying zone or against damp materials that require evaporation. A thorough job scoping inspection can help determine where drying and other water mitigation actions might be necessary. Nearly every drying process involves using axial and centrifugal air movers. 

Clearing Barriers that Slow Drying

One of the actions that air movers can take is to eliminate a cool air barrier that forms just above the surface of drying materials. Warmth is one of the critical elements of fast and efficient drying. Centrifugal air movers can be directed at a specific point, allowing our team to target these natural processes and accelerate drying and evaporation of damp surface materials.

Regulating Environmental Conditions

With the damaged area contained by physical barriers constructed with wood framing or PVC pipes and polypropylene sheeting, we can focus on the effect of equipment within this designated space. The placement and frequencies of air movers help regulate air movement within this space and promote a faster surface drying process.

Many applications exist for axial and centrifugal air movers after water damages impact area homes and businesses. Our SERVPRO of Malden / Melrose team has hundreds of drying units available for water damage emergencies of all sizes. Call us today at (781) 665-6396.

A Pipe Break Caused Water Damage in Your Maiden Residence.

It doesn't happen nearly as often in the summertime as it does in the cooler months, but it is possible that waterpipes inside your house could break one day. Although freezing is the number one way pipes break, they can also burst if they get clogged with something. Having old pipes inside your home could also be the cause of lines bursting. In some areas, tree roots can grow into water pipes and cause them to break.

Whenever our SERVPRO technicians conduct water damage repair in Malden, we find the source of the leak before we do water damage remediation procedures. After we know where the pipe broke, we then shut off the water until a plumber can come in and seal the broken water line. If you live in a two-story house, it most likely has water pipes that run between the two floors; it is possible that water can leak from the ceiling in the lower level causing extensive damage. 

If you ever have water leaking from your ceiling due to burst pipes, our SERVPRO technicians can conduct the following procedures:

  • Water Clean Up
  • Water Damage Restoration
  • Ceiling Repairs from Water Damages
  • Cleaning Up After a Sewer Backup

What Types of Smoke Damage Can Impact Melrose Homes? 

Fire cleanup in Melrose homes can change based on multiple types of smoke damage, including:

  • Dry Smoke – High-heat fires can destroy many building materials in their path, leaving thin, chalky smoke residues on surfaces. Wipe cleaning can often resolve these soils.
  • Wet Smoke – Smoldering, lower-heat fires can deposit thicker residues and particles on surfaces that are a formidable presence to remove. The threat of smearing and staining is high, requiring advanced cleaning practices like soda blasting and emulsification.
  • Protein Residues – Kitchen flare-ups can often leave protein residues from food on surfaces like cabinets and countertops. These soils are characterized by their harsh odors and difficulty to clean.
