Why SERVPRO The Real Truth Behind Excess Moisture and Resulting Mold in Your Chicago Home Wherever you find mold in your home, contacting SERVPRO is the best option for effective containment and remediation services.

Swift Mold Remediation Services for Chicago Homeowners

Leaving excess moisture inside of your home can lead to further complications, such as mold damage. The piping behind your bathroom sink has been subtly leaking for a long time and that time has given the moisture plenty of room to feed mold spores. While you may not begin to see the mold colony forming for a while, one of the earlier signs that you can detect is a musty odor. If you catch a musty scent repeatedly in your small bathroom, it is enough of a suspicion to reach out for professional help.
 
When it comes to ridding your Chicago home of the mold damage inside, it is best to call for help as soon as possible. Mold is responsible for organic material breaking down and decaying. Over time, mold can have a significantly negative impact on the structure of your home.
 
When you want to hire a restoration company that offers swift 24-hour service, as well as highly-trained and friendly technicians, SERVPRO is the answer. Our technicians are IICRC-certified and use advanced trade technology made to combat the mold damages inside of your home. Our top priorities are to arrive at your home quickly and to get the job done well.
 
After a brief investigation, SERVPRO can set up plastic sheeting to block off the entrance to your bathroom, as well as any vents, to ensure that the mold spores do not spread when disturbed. Once properly quarantined, our technicians can set up air scrubbers equipped with HEPA filters, to capture mold spores in the air as we remediate the damage.
 
SERVPRO can make cuts in the wall to get to the mold damage in the structure around the piping behind the sink. If the mold has become particularly invasive to the wooden structure, we can remove it. If it hasn't, we can merely wipe away the mold and then use an antifungal agent to ensure that regrowth doesn't occur. Once we're finished, SERVPRO can put you in contact with a reputable contractor who can rebuild the section of your bathroom that we had to remove.
 
If you find mold damage in your home, never hesitate to call for help. Dial the number (773) 337-3993 to call SERVPRO of Marquette Park / West Lawn / Ford City. We are open 24/7 and ready to send swift service to your home so we may return it to its pre-mold state.
