Trustworthy Mold Damage Remediation in Brattleboro
SERVPRO Technicians Remediate the Mold Damage and Help Prevent Future Mold Infestations
Mold sneaks up on almost every homeowner at some point. The raw materials for a colony to grow are available in abundance in virtually any home -- moisture, warmth, and organic nourishment and many, many mold spores. SERVPRO has answers to your questions about mold growth and a proven solution that eliminates the current colony and limits the risk of reinfestation.
You plan to welcome family and friends very soon, so you are horrified to find mold damage in your Brattleboro vacation cottage. Fungal growth is evident in a bathroom and a corner of one of your guest rooms, probably due to an ice dam that leaked water during the spring thaw. We know you need a fast but effective response, and we are ready with the industry standard Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols.
People sleep, shower, and bathe in these areas, so SERVPRO crew members set up a containment system including a multi-filter, negative pressure air scrubber first. The air scrubber vents any mold spore or particles out of the affected areas during removal of the colonies. Our crew assesses the condition of the surfaces underlying the mold to see if simply removing the mold is possible. Drywall may contain too many “roots” of the colony, requiring a piece to be cut out and disposed of with the mold. In the tiled bathroom simply removing the mold is commonly enough.
Both rooms then receive a sanitization treatment using industry approved antimicrobials. We do not recommend bleach or other DIY remedies as they actually feed the mold water, and only lighten the stain. SERVPRO crew members then patch the drywall, vacuum the area using high-powered equipment with HEPA filters, and touch up the repairs with paint. We also advise on strategies to deal with the ice dams next winter. If the moisture is not eliminated, mold will return.
You are now ready to open the doors wide for your visitors. Enjoy your time together knowing that SERVPRO made it all seem “Like it never even happened.”
