SERVPRO's Technology Eliminates Mold Damage With Ease In Amherst

Eliminating mold damage from your Amherst home requires speed, thoroughness, and flawless sanitization to get done optimally. Without the right equipment for the job, the fungus can keep coming back, possibly stronger and more resistant to treatment than before. SERVPRO carries an advanced array of mold-fighting tools and technology that allows us to take care of infestations faster and more reliably than ever before. By using these technologies and more, we can bring you one of the best mold remediation services in the country.

Moisture Detection Tools
One of the biggest ways we are helped by the latest and greatest technology when fighting mold damage in Amherst is with our moisture detection tools. Our handheld thermohygrometers and infrared imaging devices allow us to see through walls and floors to find pockets of moisture harboring live mold growth. Without water, mold cannot grow (although dry areas could still house dead colonies) and so these tools allow us to find and destroy any remaining patches of growth in the home.

Sanitization Technology
Simple sanitizing sprays, wipes, and solutions are often not enough to kill mold and other fungi. Because spores have a tough outer layer insulating them from many common chemicals, these products prove ineffective in the long term. Instead, we turn to machines that project powerful ultraviolet light onto an area, frying the spores and ensuring that anything in the vicinity stays dead.

Thorough Odor Removal
Conventional odor removing techniques involve masking odors or, in some cases, neutralizing common chemicals via common cleaning agents. However, mold colonies emit odors that cannot easily be masked or neutralized by the usual methods and solutions, and their odorous particles tend to spread widely throughout the home. To take on these problems, we employ custom-made chemical and thermal foggers that can find and eliminate the smell of mold in every corner of your home.

Why SERVPRO Mold Damage in Your Home? Trust SERVPRO to Remediate The Mess The technicians at SERVPRO of Hampshire County have the certifications and training to remediate mold from any home.

Why SERVPRO can Provide Expert Mold Damage Remediation to Amherst Homeowners

The appearance of mold in your property can be worrisome. We have all heard horror stories of the enormous costs involved in mold remediation and the harm it can do if left unchecked. As talented technicians with decades of experience in the industry, we can confidently tell you not to panic. Mold spores are a part of every home environment and even contain beneficial properties like penicillin. It is only when these benign spores come into contact with moist surfaces that they begin to proliferate requiring professional attention.

Discovering mold damage in Amherst properties is not uncommon. Humidity levels, rainfall or internal structural issues like leaky plumbing can all be a factor. It is not difficult to find a host of restoration services either. However, like most home restoration work, finding someone you can trust is paramount. At SERVPRO we always "do what is right by the customer" first, rather than adding expenses for unnecessary procedures like laboratory mold assessments.

We work with local technicians at SERVPRO providing training and allowing them to complete their IICRC certificates in a range of restoration methods. Being equipped with the latest industry expertise means they can use advanced techniques to tackle the affected area of your home. One technique we use is soda blasting which is useful for the remediation of porous materials that have mold growing below the surface.

We also hold IICRC certificates for applied structural drying. This qualification allows SERVPRO technicians to accurately assess the best course of action in each mold remediation service we complete. In cases of severe mold damage, it may be necessary to sand-blast the structure. This abrasive method removes heavy-set damages leaving behind a smooth, sturdy and most importantly sanitized surface. As part of our service, we can liaise with your insurance adjuster to make the whole process as effortless as possible for our customers.
