SERVPRO Ensures Mold Remediation in Waterbury Does Not Create Problems

Mold can affect any part of your Waterbury home. The best way to deal with the mold inconveniences is to prevent it from developing by drying any moisture from leaks and ventilating the house. Since prevention does not always work, you need solutions once the problem sets.

Engaging mold removal companies help Waterbury homeowners in many ways since the contamination may have some hidden aspects. SERVPRO provides comprehensive services addressing the problem "Like it never even happened." 

Vital services when addressing mold damage include:

  • Assessment
  • Handling contaminated items
  • Cleaning

Mold shows itself through various signs such as musty odors and spots on surfaces. After noticing these signs, it is essential to assess the property revealing how extensively the issue spreads. It is also vital to establish whether the mold is only on the surface or is deeply embedded in materials. Contamination starts when spores settle on surfaces and then sprout hyphae which penetrate organic materials to absorb nutrients.

How Mold Spread Is Assessed

Mold tends to develop more in hidden areas such as wall and ceiling cavities. Assessment should reach all these areas, which can cause significant physical damage to the structure. Our SERVPRO technicians use non-invasive approaches such as drilling small holes in suspected areas then using borescopes to inspect the hidden places. Probing surfaces such as drywall with a hard tool like a screwdriver establish the level of deterioration since severe infestation makes drywall crumbly.

Although mold presence is a problem, you can trigger other problems when attempting to resolve the issue. Proper handling and using the correct cleaning approaches are essential steps. Our SERVPRO teams can help you tackle these processes without causing problems such as cross-contamination. 

Helpful actions include in controlling mold include:

  • Prioritizing residue capture methods such as vacuuming
  • Using dry cleaning methods to prevent re-infestation
  • Erecting containment barriers
