The Remediation Specialists At SERVPRO Can Handle Any Size Mold Infestation In Colorado Springs
Remediating The Effects Of Mold Damage In Colorado Springs Homes
Mold is the disaster that sneaks into a Colorado Springs home when no one is looking, and almost no one looks for mold. A small number of spores can go unnoticed and expand to spread throughout any home in a matter of months. The first sign of mold is the musty odor, but not every mold growth gives it off, so this is not a reliable indication to call in a cleaning service.
That means SERVPRO gets called in when the mold damage to a Colorado Springs home has already started. Our teams use the EPA guidelines for removal as the framework for our cleaning methods.
First, we find the source and extent of the growth. Our inspectors use air content meters to examine basements, behind walls, attics, and crawlspaces. Understanding both factors help us decide which tools and methods to use.
Next, we isolate the affected area from the rest of the home. Team members establish containment by covering all doors and windows with plastic sheets. They also seal off the HVAC vents and make certain the system is turned off to prevent spreading the contamination.
Technicians begin cleaning with wiping down every surface in the area. They start with dry wiping which uses cloths and sponges, which removes most of the mold spores. If they are in a very thick layer, team members may use a vacuum which a special HEPA filter designed to capture the spores.
For wet or damp mold, we use a cleaning agent to break up the growth to remove it from the surface. Then, we allow the surface to dry and spores to settle out of the air and wipe it down with a cloth or dry sponge to make certain we remove any loose spores missed previously.
If we cannot restore some property, we break it down, bag it, and remove it from the contaminated area. We dispose of it according to state and federal regulations.
Returning each home to a clean, mold-free condition is our goal at SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes. If you have mold, call us at (719) 434-4626 today. We are here for you.
