SERVPRO Manages Both the Regular and Unexpected Issues Arising After Mold Contamination

Mold may seem less severe compared to other property disasters, which might render houses or other structures uninhabitable immediately.  Mold may also seem easier to address by cleaning the affected surfaces and airing the affected rooms. However, the visible mold damage issues can mislead you.

Mold damage in your East Brunswick home can be extensive, requiring significant work to control. Mold can also cause health effects, so a long-term occupation of a contaminated house is ill-advised. Seeking the intervention of a professional like SERVPRO when you notice mold in your house can help reveal the true extent of the damage in good time.

Some of the damages you need to address in your property include:

  • Accumulation of fungus and other microbial residues
  • Rot and other material deterioration
  • Soiling
  • Musty odors

Mold forms masses of colonies as it grows on surfaces. Clearing all the residues from surfaces is essential before thinking of other steps, such as repairing them to restore preloss conditions. SERVPRO teams readily tackle such cleaning tasks using methods such as HEPA vacuuming or soda and dry ice blasting. Eliminating all traces of tangible residues is essential in managing odors.

Mold spores occur naturally in the environment where they aid in decay processes. Mold produces spores and root-like hyphae that penetrate organic materials where they extract nutrients. Therefore, when you notice mold growing in any section of your house, you can expect material deterioration. One way to avoid replacing most materials is by expediting remediation processes and using approaches that help prevent a quick recurrence.

One way to minimize recurrence is using minimal moisture during cleaning by:

  • Wire brushing semi-porous materials
  • Damp-wiping with antimicrobial products
  • Sanding
