Mold Damage Prevention and Restoration in Amherst
Certified SERVPRO Technicians Attack Your Home's Mold Infestation at the Root Cause
Mold damage can gradually destroy your contents once it grows on your furnishings, walls, and other hidden locations. Usually, controlling moisture is the secret behind preventing and managing the destruction it causes. There is a genuine concern that exposure to mold can lead to health effects and therefore, as a resident of Amherst you should not take chances once you suspect contamination.
There are several tips that our SERVPRO team recommends to property owners to prevent mold damage in Amherst. To begin with, try fixing your faulty plumbing system as soon as possible. Another tip is to inspect whether there is any form condensation or wet spots in your home and correct the source. On top of that, carrying out regular HVAC inspections and maintenance is encouraged. Despite the many precautions we observe to prevent this challenge, we cannot completely stop it from happening.
When our SERVPRO experts are at the site, we identify the damaged materials and degree of damage which helps us to plan for the remediation work. When planning, we also select the appropriate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) as a safety measure. When we suspect mold contamination in your HVAC system, we stop its operation to prevent it from spreading the spores.
Before we can start capturing the mold spores through air filtration or any appropriate procedure, we put in place containment measures. We may use physical barriers to isolate the area as well as establish negative pressure to prevent the spread of the spores. During containment, we also switch off fans, cooling and heating systems.
Cleaning procedures are part of the mold remediation process, and our SERVPRO technicians select a cleanup procedure dependent on the materials and the surface with the contamination. When cleaning carpets as well as upholstered furniture, we may use steam cleaning. In most cases, we discard porous materials with deep mold penetration since it is hard to make them entirely clean. Damp-wiping materials and surfaces with detergents is also crucial at this particular stage. After that, we perform deodorization to address the odor challenges as well as spread antimicrobials that prevent the possibility of future mold growth.
