Mold Damage Restoration

Discovering mold damage on your property is always frustrating. Failure to act immediately may destroy the floors, walls and even some health effects to your family. With that in mind, it's crucial to know the signs to look out for to avoid such outcomes as a resident of Chicago.

The faster you spot mold damage in your Chicago home, the easier it is to do the remediation. But, how can you fix all that when you do not have the right tools for the work? That is why you need service providers like SERVPRO who specialize in both commercial and residential mold remediation. It is not that easy to notice mold when it is in its initial stages of growth - particularly when that is happening behind wallpapers and within the walls. Always call our team to inspect your property if you detect a strange smell.

Primarily, you should expect mildew growth after flooding or water damage. Since water flows freely and settles in different places, the resulting humid environments create favorable conditions for mildew growth. When our SERVPRO team responds to such incidents, we set up air movers and heaters to dry the area. Additionally, we can exterminate the spores by using thermal foggers which dissipate antimicrobial agents.

To control surface mold, our SERVPRO technicians use air scrubbers - especially when it is resting on hard surfaces. If we notice it has contaminated porous materials such as carpeting and fabrics, we remove them from the area. For semi-porous surfaces, we can introduce wire brushing, or sanding, or damp wiping when doing the removal. HEPA vacuuming is also an option when removing loosely attached mold.

The remediation process also involves the use of mildew retardant paints which have the capability of suppressing the unpleasant smells, leaving behind a clean and smooth area. IICRC certifies our technicians, and that means we aim for the highest standards possible.

SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City responds to any size of disaster to restore and clean both commercial and residential properties. Call us at (773) 337-3993 for industry proven services.
