Is Do-It-Yourself Mold Remediation a cost-effective alternative?
When you discover your Thomasville home has a mold problem your first thought may be to handle it yourself. But if you are inexperienced in mold remediation you could be creating a bigger problem for yourself down the road. Mold spores can easily spread throughout a structure causing additional contamination if the clean up site is not properly contained. That’s why hiring a team of professionals can actually save you time and money over the long run. Our highly trained technicians understand how to prevent cross contamination as well as the proper way to clean and/or the removal of materials.
The biggest concern with most homeowners is the cost and the inconvenience. Depending on the severity of the mold infestation it may be necessary for the homeowners to vacate the premises briefly while the property is cleaned. But many may not be aware your homeowners insurance may cover some if not most of these issues. That’s why when our experts have discovered your property has a mold problem the second phone call should be to your insurance agent.
Many homeowners who have never experienced a mold problem can get a bit of a sticker shock when discussing cost of remediation. What many don’t understand is mold can cause very serious health problems especially for those with compromised immune systems or the young. That’s why when we begin remediation our team is fully prepared with HAZMAT suits, breathing apparatuses, special vacuums that can pick up microscopic mold spores as well as portable “negative air rooms” to help prevent any additional contamination. This is just a small sample of the specialized equipment the professionals of SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville use to remove and prevent any additional damage to your property.
