Testing for Mold Does Not Remediate the Fungi--Call SERVPRO


Dealing with a small patch of mold you find in the corner of the ceiling in your bathroom is one thing, having to deal with larger areas and excessive damage requires professional help. Never take the chance of exposing yourselves to possible health risks, not when expertly trained technicians are available.


Sadly, many homeowners think that buying a kit for testing mold damage in their Lilburn home protects them from hazards that exist. Unfortunately, that is often not the case. Even the Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that regardless of the type or amount of mold that exists on your property, seeking professional remediation services is your best avenue for removing contamination and preventing future growth.
 
The company you use for mitigating damage in your home should know that testing to determine which type of mold exists in your home is usually without merit. Anyone who tells you any different is simply trying to take more of your money or provide you with services that you simply do not need. If mold is visible, there is no reason to test.
 
SERVPRO, for instance, never offers customers unnecessary services. We get right to the guts of the problem, confine the affected areas of your home, locate the moisture source causing the issue, repair it, and remove as much moisture as possible using professional water extraction equipment of all sizes. We even use infrared cameras to locate pockets of moisture hidden in your walls, or within small hard to reach areas where moisture can hide and cause future damage.
 
SERVPRO technicians utilize fast drying techniques after disposing of contaminated porous materials where restoration is not possible. We avoid using chemical applications when at all possible and allow a more physical approach to control the spread and growth of microbes. The company you use should know that applying chemical products as your sole source of remediation does not get the job done entirely.
 
However, during the cleaning and deodorization phase of your restoration, an EPA-registered broad spectrum disinfectant becomes useful for treating contaminated surfaces. SERVPRO technicians follow strict safety guidelines to protect the occupants and any workers throughout your entire restoration process, using personal protective equipment to avoid exposure.
 
SERVPRO of North Lilburn gives you access to useful information and has the proper resources to assist with remediation services in your home, give us a call today. (770) 709-3266
