Mold Damage Cleanup for Your Fort Collins Home
Fort Collins Homeowners Often Rely on Mold Remediation from SERVPRO, "Like it never even happened."
Molds are a part of the natural environment. They can be found everywhere in Fort Collins, indoors and outdoors. Although mold is not usually a problem, it becomes one when it starts growing inside your home. The best deterent for fungal growth is control moisture. Therefore, if you find any leaks or other damp sources in your home, they need to be taken care of right away.
Mold growth in your Fort Collins home can create health effects for you and your family. Plus, mold damage can eat away at the surfaces of your home it is growing on. These growths are extremely difficult to clean on your own with regular household cleaners. The EPA recommends professional help for pathes over ten square feet. Our staff at SERVPRO, who are specially trained and certified to handle mold and mildew in your home, is always a wise choice.
The first, and most important step, of mold remediation, is setting up containment and ventilation. We contain the area where the mold is so that while we are cleaning the spores they do not spread to clean sections of your home. The use of proper ventilation and air filtration devices like air scrubbers also aid in keeping the loosened mold spores from spreading around.
Once containment is set up, SERVPRO staff can begin cleaning and disinfecting the affected area. If the mold is growing on a porous surface such as drywall, we may have to remove it so it can be replaced, as cleaning these types of surfaces of a mold is often not successful. For light infestations it may be possible to use mechanical means to salvage the sheetrock. For surfaces that are non-porous, we can clean them with damp wiping and HEPA filtration vacuuming.
Once cleaning is done, we can then apply biocide or fungicide solutions. We make sure that the moisture problem that caused the mold in the first place is taken care of, so the mold growth does not return. This may mean using another contractor to stifle moisture access to your structure.
SERVPRO of Fort Collins understands that finding mold damage in your home in Fort Collins and the surrounding areas is not pleasant, and we work quickly to clean it for you. Reach out to us by dialing (970) 493-6335 as soon as you realize you have a colony of mold in your residence.
