SERVPRO Technicians Can Remove Mold Damage From Advance Homes Fast

While all buildings have some amount of mold in them, water damage on organic materials can easily create an environment that allows these microbes to thrive. Professional mitigation not only contains mold spores, but it can also improve the indoor air quality in your space in Advance. Proper remediation is especially crucial for basements, which are highly vulnerable to both water damage and mold growth.

If mold damage is discovered in your Advance property’s basement, SERVPRO technicians can remediate the microbes and return your home to a preloss condition. Your local SERVPRO is also licensed to provide residential contracting services (license #NC 26671) to rebuild portions of your home after a disaster.

This education, on top of stringent crew training measures, ensures that SERVPRO teams are well-equipped to advise on disaster situations and render cleanup services per Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards for the restoration industry.

SERVPRO’s Mold Remediation Measures

Removing mold means more than just cleaning up spores found on surfaces with antimicrobial solutions. Containment measures and personal protection equipment (PPE) are a must for keeping homes safe during the cleanup process. HVAC intakes, doorways, and other areas where mold can spread through the home may be sealed off to keep spores contained.

PPE that technicians may use during mold remediation varies. Respirators with N95 filters are preferred for small-scale contamination, while Powered Air Purifying Respirators (PAPRs) are commonly used for more extensive mold proliferation.
