SERVPRO Offers a Through Mold Cleanup in Dunkirk Homes

Whether it is a few spots on your ceiling or a sizable outbreak in your basement, calling a professional to investigate mold in your property is vital. If left unattended, mold continues to spread as long as the conditions to sustain it are perfect, affecting your home's look and air quality. It might quickly get out of hand, mainly in areas of your Dunkirk home you do not regularly use.

For effective mold removal in Dunkirk homes, it is advisable to look for the underlying cause. Without addressing the cause of mold growth in a particular area, it just keeps coming back. Therefore simply repairing a leaky pipe goes a long way in ensuring the mold cleaning efforts do not go to waste. SERVPRO performs unique mold removal processes restoring your home.

Places to check for mold growth

  • Between the walls
  • The attic
  • HVAC system

Tackling mold damage on drywall

After addressing the root cause of the mold, SERVPRO technicians focus on the visible mold itself. Often the infestation could be worse than what you see with the naked eye. Therefore it is important to do more than wipe or scrap mold off surfaces and leave it at that. What you see is the fruiting body of the fungus, but often the hidden roots survive, and the mold comes back almost immediately.

To effectively remove mold contamination on drywall, our technicians may opt to remove the damaged section of drywall for replacement physically. Active mold growth on porous materials such as drywall is remediated by removing the material. If the framing is affected, we vacuum excessive mold spores into HEPA filters and damp-wipe soiled surfaces with detergent cleaning products, then apply sealant.

Precautions when addressing mold

  • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces
  • Ensure the area is completely dry
  • Apply anti-microbial to stop further growth
