Mountain Vernon Homes with Mold Problems Need to Understand How Mold Remediation Works

Mold can be found in any Mount Vernon Home. Anywhere there is excess moisture, mold can grow. High humidity alone can cause mold to develop from the damp air. When that happens, you need a mold remediation company.

Can SERVPRO Remove all Mold?

Any company that tells you all the mold in your home can be removed entirely is one to question. Although the term 'mold removal' is often used, it cannot be removed entirely. The reason is simple. Mold spores are everywhere and cannot be eradicated. But what can be removed is the condition in which they thrive. Our technicians do a mold inspection in Mount Vernon homes that routes out visible and hidden mold. 

Dealing with Mold

Mold remediation is mitigating the mold growth present, repairing the damage, and preventing the return. SERVPRO IICRC trained technicians are trained in mold remediation. We follow EPA protocols when doing mold cleanup. We employ the following steps:

  • Discovery – If you see it or smell it mold is present. Expensive testing is rarely needed. Multiplying colonies, staining, and a strong, musty odor are all evidence of mold.
  • Containment – Physical barriers and negative air pressure scrubbers seal the area. HEPA filters get used to trap mold particles. The goal is to stop the spores from spreading while cleaning.
  • Removal – We employ various mechanical methods to remove mold from impacted surfaces. Scraping, dry brushing, and soda blasting are standard removal methods. The dust and debris that settle get vacuumed and everything is treated with an antimicrobial.

The moisture that caused the problem is also addressed. If not, the mold can simply return. If it results from water intrusion, that is mitigated as well. High humidity can be handled with a dehumidifier. 

 When you hire SERVPRO, you hire mold remediation experts who adhere to EPA protocols. Contact SERVPRO of Skagit County at (360) 873-8744 for professional mold inspection and remediation services. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
