Some Ways to Keep a Mold Infestation From Spreading Throughout Your Chicago Home
Cleaning Up Your Home's Interior with Help from Mold Removal Experts in Chicago
After the holidays, getting decorations and extra furnishings put back into storage helps get your Chicago home's environment restored to a calmer state. Moving things around can also stir up dust and reveal mold-infested areas in your attic or basement.
Over the winter, microbes might slow in the rate of growth and become dormant, making it an excellent time to start mold removal in Chicago. Cleaning up in these areas during periods of slowed growth can make things easier. If moisture remains a constant presence, temperature fluctuations in attics and basements only slightly slow these microbes' growth down. However, SERVPRO technicians always carry the tools and equipment needed to get mold reduced to normal levels and cleaned up.
While you clean your home after the last party or celebration, uncovering mold can put a stop to everything. If you find mold in any particular space, putting boxes in the area can contaminate them and their contents. SERVPRO cleans the mold from all surfaces and makes them clean again. We also clean the air by using our air scrubbers. These machines pull air through at a tremendous rate and extract all mold and spores from the air.
When mold grows densely in an enclosed space, our specialists often use blasting equipment to abrade mold colonies from surfaces in these areas. When we use dry ice pellets, the frozen pellets freeze the mold and spores instantly, keeping the spores from entering the air. Afterward, the dry ice evaporates and does not require any additional cleanup. Other times, we rely on soda blasting to achieve the desired results. This method does require a bit of cleanup after we finish, but the soda also kills odors while leaving a pleasant scent in the area.
Cleaning up party decorations often includes just pulling things down and placing them in either a box for re-use next year or disposal in a garbage bag. Finding mold and mildew means you need a partner in cleaning up your home. We at SERVPRO stand behind our methods and know we can restore your home's interior.
