SERVPRO Mold Damage Remediation for Your Fort Collins Property
Structures Get Safe Treatment with Professional Remediation for Mold
When it comes to finding and eliminating mold you, the homeowner, are our best, initial source of information. Before we set up a single fan or other pieces of restoration equipment, we have to run a checklist with you.
Preventing mold damage means we need to know when it was first noticed and where it was seen (or smelled) in your Fort Collins home is very important. It provides our SERVPRO inspectors with a starting point to determine just how far mold may have grown and help us trace it to the source of infestation. These are the questions we need to ask you after setting foot in your home.
1. Have you seen any mold contamination in your home? Basements and laundry rooms are common places to find it.
2. Have you smelled a strong musty odor anywhere in your home?
3. Have you had a previous problem with mold? Let us know, regardless how minor you think it may have been.
4. Have you had any recent water damage? How long ago was it and where?
5. Have you seen mold in your HVAC system? Is the smell of mold stronger near one of the vents or registers?
If you said yes to even one of those questions, our inspector would get started immediately. We have special meters designed to measure mold levels in the surrounding air; they allow us to pinpoint the source of the mold better and accurately measure how far the infestation may have spread.
With that information, our restoration and repair crews move to isolate the room or area affected. If your HVAC has been determined to have safe levels of mold, the first step they will take is to seal it off. This not only protects the system, but also prevents mold spreading to other rooms in your home if it is accidentally turned on.
To further protect your home, we will deploy a set of exhaust fans in the affected area. This allows us to blow mold spores out of the area while technicians clean and remove the infestation using commercial cleaners and anti-fungal agents to kill every spore they can reach.
This area of Colorado is an amazing place to live. There's no reason for mold to affect that. While an infestation can cause a problem, SERVPRO of Fort Collins can help you stop it before it can damage your home. If you suspect or smell a problem brewing, call us today at (970) 493-6335.
