The Reality of Finding Mold Damage in Your Andover Residence

Mold can appear suddenly and then spread quickly. Call SERVPRO right away should you see or smell moldy dampness in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Efficaciously Remediate Mold Infestations in Homes

Most people might not even realize how easy it is to have the appropriate environment for mold growth in their Andover home. When it gets earnestly considered, the majority of people think that fungal spores and colonies only really present themselves in dark and damp areas of forgotten basements and could not find a way to present themselves into the bustling high traffic areas of their home. Unfortunately, this is undoubtedly not the case.
The truth is, many people do not even realize they have mold damage in their Andover home until they have a thriving set of colonies on their hands. Even with this scenario, unless you are continuously monitoring for changes in appearance to drywall and other organic materials, it can be easy to overlook. Often the damage is identified most easily by an overwhelming musty scent that is indicative of the presence of fungal growth.
Sure, there are plenty of places on the internet that would suggest that you can remove mold colonies on your own with this type of cleanser or through some specific method. In all actuality, without the right tools and expertise, most people cannot remove a mold colony entirely, allowing the problem to reoccur time and time again. Remediation of the mold is something that is better left to professionals like our experienced and highly trained SERVPRO team.
Our goal throughout this process is to remove the mold colonies from your home successfully, but at the same time, prevent more active spores from creating new colonies elsewhere. When we arrive to begin the process, we shut down air circulation appliances like your air conditioning or forced air heaters to prevent the spread of mold to other areas of your home through ventilation and ductwork.
Removal of the colonies is the same process regardless of where we are in the home, utilizing tools like our scrubbers with HEPA filters to clean deeply into the surfaces to eradicate the entire hyphae. Once all of the assessed damage has gotten removed, we set our sights on dehumidification to eliminate the moisture in the air that allowed the mold to thrive in the first place.
Our team is IICRC certified in mold remediation strategies. We know how to help you through this problem, regardless of the severity of mold damage you might face. You can trust our experienced specialists at SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County. Call us today at (763) 712-9712.
