Mold Damage in a Boulder Home Requires Professional Remediation to Prevent Spreading

9/8/2017 (Permalink)

Mold Remediation Mold Damage in a Boulder Home Requires Professional Remediation to Prevent Spreading Mold damage can spread everywhere, but SERVPRO can remediate it "Like it never even happened."

SERVPRO Technicians Can Remediate Your Boulder Home Mold "Like It Never Even Happened."

Microbial life exists in almost every corner of the planet, including properties in the Boulder area. Mold and mildew are two of the most common forms encountered. Colonies can grow to immense sizes inside walls before making an appearance in visible areas.

Once a home in Boulder shows signs of mold damage, professional remediation needs to begin as quickly as possible. Mold multiplies rapidly, spreads easily, and in addition to damaging materials inside your home, mold can cause health effects in sensitive individuals.

SERVPRO employees receive both classroom training and hands-on experience. Other training includes earning the Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT) certificate, as well as several other certificates from the IICRC. Knowing how to remove moldy materials safely and without risk of contaminating clean areas of your home but also what allowed fungal growth to proliferate helps us completely protect your home.

With the use of hygrometers and other moisture sensors, we detect leaks that permit mold to grow. Other sources of water cannot hide and are also easily found and located. Stopping water from seeping in through cracks or up from crawl spaces is next to impossible when the source remains unknown. As we work, we regularly monitor the number of mold spores in the air, and also the level of humidity. Both must return to normal levels. Slowly dropping levels can indicate other sources that remain.

Our other equipment aids the mold remediation process. Air scrubbers come equipped with HEPA filters capable of stripping mold and spores from the air. Dehumidifiers reduce the humidity and may require installation for areas that refuse to respond to efforts to desiccate them.

Such areas can be treated with microbial inhibitors so that regrowth remains unlikely. However, raised humidity levels can become problematic for other parts of your home simply because mold exists everywhere and only requires a scant amount of moisture to begin growing rampantly.
