Mold Damage Remediation You Can Trust in Crossville

Mold can damage many things like walls in your home. Contact SERVPRO when you first see or smell mold for best results.

SERVPRO Technicians Find the Mold Infestation Cause Before Finishing Remediation

Our community has a modern history stretching back over 200 years. If your historic home sustains water damage that goes unheeded, you may be facing microbial growth that damages the structure of your dwelling and causes an unpleasant smell that pervades your interior. Although only a medical professional can make the connection, individuals with sensitivity to high mold levels can suffer health effects where growth is ongoing.
Trust the abatement of mold damage in your Crossville home to a restoration company that seeks out and uses only research-based methods to contain and remove mold. We use protocols developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) when remediating a mold outbreak in your home.
A key component of the EPA approach is containment throughout the process. SERVPRO offers homeowners state of the art negative pressure air scrubbers to vent the area affected. High-efficiency HEPA filters catch moldy particles, and we also drape the space with the colonies with heavy-duty plastic sheeting to limit reintroduction of the mold into other areas of the home as much as possible.
Once contained, the moldy material is removed. If the colonies infest porous surfaces, the SERVPRO crew may have to remove some structures as well. If we are not certain all of the mold is gone, we risk immediate reinfection. The mold and attached materials must be discarded according to local hazardous waste regulations. SERVPRO is familiar with that procedure.
We then apply professional antimicrobials to surfaces to reduce the possibility of regrowth. HEPA filtered vacuums remove additional debris. We replace materials removed and complete finishing touches like painting or finishing new wood surfaces. As we get closer to the finish, we make certain the moisture source that fueled the mold damage is located and eliminated. Minimizing moisture is the only way to avoid mold growth.
The last step is to use deodorization techniques if an unpleasant smell lingers. Cover-ups are ineffective. SERVPRO odor elimination specialists work through a range of methods until one works. The strategies range from a thorough cleaning to technologies like thermal fogging or hydroxyl generators.
SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties has trained technicians and professional equipment to remediate mold in your home. Call (931) 250-5333 for a consultation if you suspect spores are reproducing. The integrity of your home’s structure and healthy indoor air quality depend upon it.
