Hidden Mold Damage in Your Granby Home
SERVPRO Locates the Source of the Mold Infestation Before Remediating the Damage
Sometimes, you can have mold growing in your Granby home and not even realize it. One way in which this can happen is if you have a slow pipe leak. Pipes are usually out of eyesight and buried under flooring or behind walls. If one of them starts leaking slowly, you probably won’t even realize it for a while, and in the meantime, mold also has a chance to grow.
If you have discovered mold and mold damage in your Granby home from a hidden leak, the faster you get it taken care of, the better. Your home continues to sustain more damage the longer the mold and moisture are present, so get in touch with our technicians at SERVPRO when you see a problem. We have the training and the tools to take care of the problem for you quickly.
Upon arrival to your home, we do a careful inspection of your property for visible signs of mold. It feeds on water and cellulose and can be hidden from plain sight, so we use various technologies to find hidden water sources and mold.
SERVPRO techs also use various containment procedures to stop the mold from spreading. We might use containment methods that are advanced such as negative air chambers, so the area which is contaminated is isolated with barriers, plus negative air pressure to stop the spores from spreading to clean areas of your home. All cooling and heating systems or fans are turned off to stop the spread of the infestation.
Specialized air filtration equipment is also used to catch microscopic spores from the air. We use HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers to stop the spread of mold as well during the remediation process.
Our process of remediation depends on how much mold growth there is and what kinds of surfaces the mold is on. We use antimicrobial and antifungal treatments to get rid of the colonies of mold and to stop new ones from forming. Removing and getting rid of porous materials that are mold-infested, such as carpeting and drywall, can be necessary when massive mold growth is present.
Restoration may also involve minor repairs like painting, replacing drywall, or installing new carpet. Major repairs include the construction of various rooms or areas in your home.
