Why Mold Damage Calls for Skilled Remediation in Vernon

6/2/2022 (Permalink)

Vernon Residents Get Quality Mold Damage Remediation from SERVPRO

Realizing you have mold damage in your Vernon property can be quite a blow. Your initial thought may be to grab some bleach-infused spray and begin wiping. However, any mold spore disruption could spell disaster. Not only that, but this is never the correct method for addressing a possible mold infestation. Instead, you have SERVPRO available in the area to handle your cleanup and restoration fast and with care so that you can return your property to pre-mold condition, “Like it never even happened.”

Why is SERVPRO right for the job? Many homeowners do not understand the implications of mold damage in Vernon. We have technicians trained by the IICRC, so we know the best practices for safely handling areas with suspected mold infestation.

  • We arrive to begin the assessment to determine all areas where mold may be present.
  • We wear personal protective equipment (PPE) like gloves, full-body suits, boots, goggles, and respirators.
  • We put containment and negative air pressure systems in place to keep mold spores from traveling around your property.
  • We remove and replace all unsalvageable materials impacted by mold growth, including bathroom mold on cabinetry, basement mold showing up on contents, and more.
  • We can also pack up and move out belongings to have them cleaned off-site while our team works on your property.

How Much Do You Know About Mold?

Mold spores can travel efficiently and quickly once dislodged. If you have fans on or your HVAC system is running, this could mean the movement of spores into unaffected zones of your property. Those new spores can colonize and turn into a major mold issue in the right environment. The faster you have a team at your property to begin mold cleanup and remediation services, the better chance you have of stopping the problem in its tracks.

  • Mold is present everywhere, every day, including your home and the outdoors.
  • Microscopic spores can travel easily throughout the air, coming into your home through the windows, on pets, on your clothing, or through your HVAC system.
  • Mold spores thrive in optimum temperatures with an organic food source and moisture.
  • Mold is often detectable by a strong, musty odor.
  • Mold remediation and restoration cannot begin until the source of the moisture issue gets resolved.

Do You Suspect Mold Development Within Your Commercial Property?

You could have an employee notice musty odors in a company bathroom, or a person on your cleaning crew spotted visible mold. No matter the reason, you need to have a team with training and all the right equipment to address your mold problem. You never want to leave it to chance with DIY cleanup methods. Having skilled mold specialists on the project helps to ensure safety for your employees and anyone entering your commercial building.

Cleaning, sanitizing, and deodorizing are imperative with all restoration projects, including challenging mold projects. We have Odor Control Technicians (OCT) on our team that knows how to select the right processes and EPA-registered products to help eliminate odorous elements to leave your interior air fresh and clean again. The efforts may include surface cleaning, deodorizing beads, fogging deodorizers, and other products to eliminate harmful bacteria.

When we get finished with your mold damage project, your interior will be Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned! Get in touch with us at SERVPRO of Greater Sussex County whenever you need mold cleanup by dialing (973) 383-2024.

  • Water-based odor counteractants that readily mix with cleaning solutions to neutralize most fire-related scents at a wide range of temperatures and pH extremes

  • Water-based thermal fog deodorizers, transformable into an extra-fine mist that can penetrate smoke-fouled cracks/crevices, which are not flammable and can be applied with thermal foggers
