Visible Mold Growth IN Andover Can Extend Far into Wall Cavities--Call SERVPRO for Remediation

SERVPRO Advises to Hire a Professional Mold Remediation Company

By using a mild cleaning solution to cleanse small areas of mold found on the ceiling or walls of your bathroom, you may be helping conceal the real problem that exists. Not only that, if you handle the area wrong, you could spread the contamination further as well.

It is true that regular bleach mixed with water in the correct manner has some effect on mold damaged areas of your Andover home. It is minimal even as the water encourages more mold growth. However, these cleaning chemicals do not entirely remove the microscopic spores that cause mold growth to occur and should never be your only method of handling mold remediation in your home.

You may use the correct cleaning solution, but you forget that any scrub brushes, sponges, buckets, or other tools you use that become contaminated need cleaning as well. You end up using these tools again and again for different reasons around your home, spreading dormant spores throughout your property, without even knowing what you are doing.

SERVPRO often assists homeowners after they have decided to try to tackle these issues on their own. It often turns out that they cause more harm than good. Our technicians use visible signs of mold growth in your home to locate larger problems hidden in your walls. Without the stains there, it just makes things harder.

Unless you are sure that you have everything necessary, including the knowledge to perform your remediation on your own, contacting expertly trained professionals to help you control mold growth in your home correctly remains your best option. We encourage all homeowners to turn to professional assistance for mold remediation.

SERVPRO technicians use physical removal methods of remediation to control mold infestations in your home. The small patches you see on the ceiling of your bathroom are just the beginning. When removing the porous materials on the surface, you often find a great deal more contamination within your walls that require your attention as well.

Give SERVPRO’s expertly trained mold remediation specialists the opportunity to inspect your situation and provide you with the proper services to mitigate mold growth on your property. They have the ability to locate and repair the source of moisture causing the problem, access to professional extraction and drying equipment to remove water faster, and experience in handling and disposing of infected materials correctly.
