Sparta, TN Mold Damage Remediation

With much of the community built along the Calfkiller River, the thousands of homes to our welcome center in Liberty Square’s Oldham Theater are susceptible to developing mold threats. From single-family homes to government buildings like the White County Courthouse, potential mold growth can spread fast. Addressing these concerns requires a team of remediation professionals capable of responding rapidly and managing threatening conditions quickly, like our SERVPRO technicians. 

How Does Mold Remediation Get Started in Sparta Homes?

There is an urgency for mold removal. With spreading organisms, much of the property can become hosting materials without swift and deliberate action to remove colonies and protect the underlying substrates. Several approaches for mold elimination, beginning with surface treatments targeted at superficial and light mold damage to more aggressive sandblasting or demolition tactics. We are an experienced team to help with: 

  • Bathroom Mold Removal
  • Mold Remediation
  • Mold Removal
  • Black Mold
  • Attic Mold Removal
  • Mold Inspections 

Can Intrusive Attic Mold Be Stopped in Sparta Homes?

Many of Sparta’s homes have unfinished attic spaces, making it possible for damage to exist without a homeowner knowing right away. When mold gets discovered, containment is critical to prevent the spread to other areas of the house with plastic sheeting and air scrubbers. Establishing set barriers for the mold remediation process makes colony elimination faster and helps with regulating drying principles like airflow, temperature, and humidity.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return. 
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (931) 250-5333

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Sparta, TN home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Sparta, TN home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
