Mold sometimes hides for months before the smell creates a clear picture of what lies behind cabinets or furniture. Contact SERVPRO for remediation.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate Mold Damage and then Focus on Preventing the Mold Infestation From Recurring

Mold damage can be a nightmare for your Chicago property. If you do not act promptly and seek help, the damage can spread quickly and get out of hand. Furthermore, trying to tackle mold damage on your own is a bad idea. Mold remediation is a job for the professionals who have the necessary training and equipment to get it done.

Here at SERVPRO, we offer professional mold remediation services that can get rid of mold damage from your Chicago property in no time. Our skilled professionals are trained in eliminating mold from your property as safely and efficiently as possible. Here are some of the steps involved in remediation of mold damage. 

  • Documentation

Documentation is a significant part of mold remediation process. Once SERVPRO technicians are on the site, they generate a record including information such as the extent of damage and moisture saturation. They work closely with the Indoor Environmental Professionals (IEPs) to ensure proper documentation before and after remediation.  

  • Contain mold at its source

The next thing that the professionals do is take steps to contain the damage to the affected area. Curtains and negative air pressure machines are used to ensure that mold does not find its way to the unaffected areas. 

  • Mold removal

Once the mold is contained, the next step involves its removal. The excess mold can be removed physically, by HEPA vacuuming and damp wiping. If the mold damage is too extensive, the materials can be disposed of safely rather than trying to restore them. 

  • Correcting the moisture problem

Even the best cleanup will not be able to prevent mold from returning if the moisture problem is not solved. Mold loves moisture, and if there is excess moisture on any surface, the mold is bound to make a comeback. SERVPRO professionals use equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to rectify the moisture problem. We also use various instruments to monitor the levels of moisture and ensure that the levels are brought back to normal.
