Lilburn Properties with Mold Damage Count on SERVPRO for Remediation and Containment of Mold Spores

Preventing Recurring Mold Damage in Lilburn

Mold spores are part and parcel of a home environment, residing in attics, crawlspaces and underneath floorboards. They are not necessarily a problem until they come into contact with a warm, moist environment where they can germinate. With the right conditions, mold can grow within 24 hours and form full-size colonies within 48-hours.

When dealing with mold damage in Lilburn, the priority is to prevent the affected area from spreading. Since mold spores travel primarily through air-flow, it is crucial that the area of infection is contained, and careful precautions made to establish clean rooms as well as decontamination zones. We can do this by putting up barriers, sealing rooms or applying negative air-pressure.

SERVPRO offers a two-step solution to properties that are showing signs of mold growth. The first is to scrub mold away using abrasive cleaning methods alongside sanitizers for sensitive surfaces and fabrics. Porous materials like fabrics may have to be sent to a facility where they can be treated using Esporta washing machines. We aim to restore rather than replace and can surprise you with the amount we can salvage from items that might seem beyond repair.

As we clear away mold, our technicians can pack up the contaminated contents and dispose of them properly. Once all visible signs have been removed, we can focus on grappling to keep the mold from returning to the treated areas. SERVPRO achieve this by measuring humidity levels in the affected area and restoring them to the correct level.

We cannot remove 100% of mold spores from your home, but we can restore the affected area so they cannot proliferate. Using dehumidifiers to remove moisture from the air, and thoroughly drying any areas where moisture has built up can help prevent mold damage from recurring. We then fully-deodorize the area using chemical neutralizers to leave your home clean, sanitized and smelling fresh.

If you see signs of mold in your home, it cannot disappear by itself contact SERVPRO of North Lilburn at (770) 709-3266 to book a service.
