Mold Remediation Homes Benefit from Mold Cleanup. Laundry Room

It is tempting to research a bit and then try to remove household mold without professional help. Save yourself the frustration and be confident that the microbial infestation in your house is abated properly with a call to SERVPRO of Twin Falls/Jerome Co.

Mold damage to your home is not a reflection on how well you keep your home clean. Mold spores are always in the air, indoors and out, awaiting the perfect conditions to activate and grow. Our mold remediation specialists have advanced training in mold mediation. Understanding mold is the key to resolving a mold proliferation.    When you smell an earthy, musty odor or see streaking and staining of surfaces, ask us here at SERVPRO of Twin Falls/Jerome Counties to investigate. Mold spores need water and a source of organic matter to transform from specks floating in the air to rapidly expanding colonies. Mold comes in a rainbow of colors and textures from fuzzy to leathery. It slowly destroys building structures and personal belongings if not remediated by our trained technicians. Susceptible individuals with allergies or other sensitivities report health issues when a mold is on the upswing, but only a health care practitioner appropriately advises in those cases.    SERVPRO of Twin Falls/Jerome Co. crews receive certification in remediation techniques developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA,) and use these efficient protocols to almost rid your home of current infestations and avoid future problems. However, total extermination and elimination of these fungi are not possible. The first task is to contain the mold. We use physical barriers like plastic sheeting when the mold outbreak is small. Negative air pressure machines arrive with us when larger mold out breaks are present. They filter the air and vent residues outside of living areas, ensuring that spores and other particulates do not circulate in your home’s atmosphere.    Next, the moldy material, including any porous surface infiltrated, is removed and bagged for proper disposal. Our staff wears personal protective equipment (PPE) throughout for safety during each step. We apply professional-grade antimicrobials to the affected area and vacuum up debris using equipment with HEPA filtration systems. The crew replaces any building material removed with the mold, and paints, stains or otherwise finish the area to look “Like it never even happened.”    No remediation is complete until we find the cause of the mold and it is repaired and the mold is eliminated.
