Remediation of Mold Damage in Rochester is Easier with Professional Help

Mold is primarily a moisture problem so when your Rochester property is infested, remediation efforts must involve removal of excess moisture. Mold spores, which are microscopic, exist everywhere, so it only takes the right conditions for growth to start. The conditions that include warmth, an organic food source, and oxygen are also readily available, so it only takes a spike in moisture to start growing. We have a team of AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation technicians, who can help you deal with infestations in your property effectively.

The early signs of mold damage in Rochester are not likely to reveal the true extent of the problem because infestations confined spaces such as wall cavities are likely to be more advanced than those in visible areas. By using equipment such as thermal cameras, our SERVPRO team traces all the areas where there is a water problem without tearing down walls. It helps us determine the level of effort needed when restoring the damage in those areas.

The process of restoring mold damage involves cleaning and drying moldy materials. We HEPA vacuum affected areas to remove loose debris then damp wipe to remove those that adhere to the surface. Any items and especially the porous ones that cannot be cleaned must be discarded. It is not possible to clean them because the hyphae grow deep into the material where it is hard to reach them. Our SERVPRO technicians also dry non-moldy items within 48 hours eliminating chances of development.

Mold debris spreads quickly, especially when using air movers to dry affected areas. Such debris can cause health problems, so our SERVPRO technicians wear PPE, Personal Protective Equipment, and also isolate affected areas using plastic sheets to limit the spread of such debris. We also observe IICRC mold remediation standards including correcting the original moisture problem ensuring that the problem does not recur quickly once we finish remediation.

Mold problems should not become a long-term nag. With help from SERVPRO of Dover-Rochester, you can deal with the problem effectively. Call us at (603) 743-4301 any time. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
