Mold spreads quickly and can start at multiple points in your home. Contact SERVPRO to investigate the damage and remediate.

SERVPRO Technicians are Adept at Locating Mold Damage in Your Home

Many of the dark, hidden spaces within your home in Fort Collins can harbor unwanted microbial pests. Even though you may never see them, they can cause extensive damage to the interior of your residence. We can help you preserve the integrity of your home and protect it from the deterioration that accompanies microbial activity.
IICRC-certified technicians can help homeowners find hidden mold damage in Fort Collins through several methods. These highly accurate techniques can save your home from more extensive damage because they show us where microbes remain hidden and able to disperse spores that reach other areas of your house. One method SERVPRO technicians use helps find these locations by searching for materials containing elevated levels of moisture. Because microbes, including mold, exist everywhere and can only leave its dormant state in environments with available water, using moisture detectors regularly uncover mold infestations.
SERVPRO can perform mold damage remediation anywhere we locate it inside your property. In enclosed spaces such as wall cavities, dead spaces between one level and the next, or crawlspaces under the house, we can use a method similar to sandblasting. However, we do not use sand to remediate mold infestations and damage. Using sand would create more damage because of its harshness. Instead, we use either baking soda or dry ice pellets. Both have different advantages and each situation helps determine which one we use.
When mold comes from moisture left behind after a fire, soot often covers the same or adjoining materials where the microbial activity occurs, Baking soda can clean as well as deodorize, so this becomes the better option. We must vacuum not only the loosened mold particles and spores that fall to the floor, as well as the soot, so removing the spent baking soda along with it creates no additional labor cost for our customers.
Dry ice pellets evaporate into the air and never leave a trace of their existence. The only requirement with this method is to provide a way for air exchange to take place. Blasting with dry ice can successfully, and without creating any further damage, remove mold growth from wood and other surfaces. The freezing temperature of the dry ice also instantly kills mold.
SERVPRO of Fort Collins is always available to help you with the latest methods in fighting mold damage. Your home can harbor these microbes in any location but we can help find and eliminate them. Call us at our 24-hour emergency number, (970) 493-6335, and we can discuss how these methods can protect your home.
