Mold Damage Comes in Different & Surprising Forms

Mold is an aggressive microbe that lives alongside humanity. No matter where we go in Northampton, including our homes, workplaces, children's schools, local restaurants, and even area hospitals, there are microbes. Mold damage occurs if normal microbial populations grow too large.

When mold damages your Northampton dwelling, SERVPRO has the right equipment to eliminate excess mold and make any repairs your house needs. Our ability to tackle mold effectively is why SERVPRO is a trusted remediation service.

Here are some of the methods we use to take care of the worst mold problems:

  • Desiccation
  • Physical removal
  • Anti-microbial agents

Desiccation works best when we remove excess moisture, the source of that unwanted moisture, and take steps to ensure future arid conditions. We may need to do minor plumbing, reset water hoses to appliances, or seal windows. Other sources of unwanted water also can happen, which is why we use infrared imaging cameras, as these detect the temperature of everything on the camera's screen. Mold grows less profusely in drier surroundings than in damp environments.

Removing mold can happen in several ways – scraping with a sharp instrument, dry ice pellets to blast the mold from surfaces, or wiping away from smooth, non-porous surfaces (the easiest). Refinishing surfaces keeps any stains from marring the interior of your residence.

Anti-microbial agents are not always strong chemicals. Concrobium is a salt-based agent that dries into a thin film that is safe to use in residential settings. We also use anti-microbial paints to give your home additional protection.

When rebuilding becomes necessary due to mold, we can do this, as well, providing you with a streamlined service. Our Residential Contractor License is MA HIC 180066.
