SERVPRO's Well Rounded Solution For Mold Damage In Fort Collins

One of our primary goals when taking care of mold damage in homes here in Fort Collins is to provide a complete and comprehensive treatment process for the homeowner. Just removing the fungus from walls and other materials in the home is not enough to guarantee a safe, clean home that is reasonably well-protected against a repeat of the same issue several months later.

To adequately prepare your home for the future, as well as guarantee its livability, we take care to incorporate several advanced techniques and extra functions into our mold remediation treatments.

Odor Removal
Some companies do an excellent job of eliminating the visual signs of mold damage in a Fort Collins home but fail to remove the foul odors that can be a thorn in the homeowner's side for years after the infestation has run its course. Many species of mold emit foul, musty odors that may be obvious to visitors coming to the residence. We use industrial strength fogging technology to spread odor eliminating particles throughout the entire area and restore your home's smell to the way it was when you first bought it.

Treatment for Water Damages
One of the most common sights our technicians see alongside mold growth in our clients' homes is evidence of water damage. Excess water in the home can be a significant catalyst for fungal growth and may require entirely different treatments to restore. SERVPRO has the resources necessary to handle both mold remediation and water damage restoration tasks simultaneously and get your home fixed up faster.

Health and Safety Expertise
Some types of mold can cause health effects, making advice on health and safety practices difficult to give. Our crews are trained to institute varying levels of quarantines and other safety measures in the home while also causing as few inconveniences as possible for those living and working in the area. Less-experienced companies often neglect appropriate safety precautions or sometimes overdo them. By choosing SERVPRO, you can rest assured that the appropriate level of safety precautions are instituted.

SERVPRO of Fort Collins provides thorough, fast, and safe mold remediation services to homeowners in the area. Call us 24/7 at (970) 493-6335.
