Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

Mold discovered in the attic from a leaky roof.

Mold is found under the fungi classification.  It can be a soft green, pink, black or at times a gray growth which develops on objects or old food left out for a lengthy period in warm, wet air.  It can be found in outdoor and indoor.  It is important for the indoor humidity to be kept below 45%. Floods and high humidity levels often lead to microbial growth and fungus. The most efficient method of controlling microbial growth is by moderation temperature. During a floor mold can start to form in 72 hours in perfect conditions.  When the temperature is lowered, the rate of microbial growth decreases rapidly.  Molds are usually accompanied by a musty odor which can lead to health issues in certain individuals.  These colonies are responsible for the production of irritants and allergens that affect the health of people. 

An environmental hygienist can determine what treatment can be used for mold remediation.  They will test all affected areas by taking samples of air and swab surfaces.  They design a specific protocol for SERVPRO to follow. SERVPRO utilizes air scrubbers to perform mold remediation under negative pressure, containment to isolate the affected areas, heap vacuuming and specialize cleaning and sealing.  Once the work is completed the environmental hygienist returns to perform post testing to ensure levels are within normal levels and your home is back to being safe.  Call SERVPRO of AMHERST/CLARENCE for your water damage and mold needs.
