The First Steps Of Mold Remediation In Your Colorado Springs Residence
The First Steps Of Mold Remediation
The discovery of mold in your Colorado Springs home can be alarming to most homeowners. It's astounding how little people know about the conditions necessary for mold and fungal growth, and immediately attribute this occurrence to uncleanliness or some other factor. In all actuality, the process for spores to colonize in your home is fundamental. All this colonization requires is moisture, warmth, and organic material for the spores to thrive.
While there should be a question as to what is causing the moisture present in this area of your house, this is a question that can get answered by the applied microbial remediation technicians we employ at SERVPRO. Our team can respond quickly to the mold damage in your Colorado Springs home and help you to eliminate this presence and get back to your regular life.
From the moment that our crew arrives at your house, we get to work first on isolating the colony from the rest of your residence. This process gets accomplished with the use of air scrubbers fitted with HEPA filters. These filters trap airborne spores and prevent them from reaching new areas of your house while the removal is underway.
Another critical first step for our SERVPRO technicians to take is to isolate the source of the moisture and work to repair this damage. While dehumidifiers and air movers can dry out the area, this does little good if the dampness returns a short time later. For sources that cannot get identified or are not able to get fixed, our professionals might encourage you to continue using a personal dehumidifier indefinitely to avoid moisture buildup.
Mold is nothing that any homeowner wants to find in their house but is an unfortunate reality for many properties. With the attributed potential health effects to mold exposure, it is a pressing concern to remove these colonies as soon as they get discovered. Our SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes team of applied microbial remediation technicians can respond quickly to your call at any time of the day to start assessing the damage and working to remove the growth. Give us a call anytime at (719) 434-4626.
