Homeowners Rely on SERVPRO of Lexington/Thomasville for Safe Mold Removal and Remediation

You've noticed a stale, musty smell developing in your basement. Before you can to look into it, steady work issues cause you to forget. A few days later, you discover large patches of mold growth on the walls. You begin researching ways to combat this situation.

After a little research, you decide to contact a local company for professional assistance in handling the mold damage found in your Lexington home. Even if you had the time to do the repairs yourself, the process is quite involved, and all of the information you have read says that if you do it wrong, there is a high possibility of causing the infestation to spread even further.


 
Not All Mold is Bad

Mold plays a significant role in our environment, assisting with the decomposition of decaying materials, such as broken branches and leaves from a tree. It is also beneficial in biotechnology and food science, producing various foods, beverages, antibiotics, pharmaceuticals, and enzymes. However, when it comes to these fungi intruding on our living spaces, they are unsightly, destructive, and have the ability to cause health effects in specific individuals that most people would rather avoid.
 
To control mold growth within an indoor environment, SERVPRO technicians deploy a variety of services in an attempt to combat the spread of microscopic spores and remove the conditions that allow expanded growth on the interior of your home. In most cases, special handling and disposal methods are required for the remediation to be effective. We deploy a unique solution to each scenario. However, the general mold remediation process remains the same.


Here To Help

You place an initial call to SERVPRO for mold damage remediation or an inspection service. Our technicians arrive at your property and perform an inspection to determine if mold is present, and to what extent. Since mold needs a food source (cellulose) and moisture (a leak, high humidity level), we can use moisture sensors, thermal hygrometers, and infrared devices to detect pockets of moisture. A plan of action moves the remediation service forward, and recommendations are made to address the situation properly in a safe, efficient way.
 
The technicians use various containment methods to limit contamination to the smallest area possible, locate and repair the source of moisture, properly deploy (HEPA) air filtration equipment to capture any microspores freely floating inside of the contained area and use specific methods to dispose of mold-infested materials. Contaminated materials are wrapped and disposed of according to EPA, OSHA, and local regulations.
 
An IICRC certified SERVPRO cleaning technician handles the remaining contents and belongings found in the affected areas, paying specific attention to recover a high number of your personal items. While repair technicians put the finishing touches on any repairs that were necessary to return your property to a quality pre-mold damage condition, "Like it never even happened."
