Mold Remediation Be Vigilant for Signs of Mold In Irwindale -- Even During The Dry, Warm Months Of Summer For Irwindale Mold Remediation and Cleanup Rely on SERVPRO--Get It Done Right, the First Time!

Mold Remediation in Irwindale Is Only a Phone Call Away to SERVPRO

Dry and warm forecasts seem to make Irwindale an unlikely place to find significant mold development during the summer. Although the rareness of rainstorms can limit the moisture fuel source for new infestations, mold colonies hide and thrive regardless of the weather outside. If you stumble on concealed mold damage, we can help you remediate it swiftly and safely no matter what the season.
 
One key to managing mold damage successfully in Irwindale is understanding that mold spores find both expected and unexpected moisture sources in your home -- unnoticeable leaks, condensation, and the other key is to partner with an experienced mold remediation company when you discover mold growth. You might see what appears to be a minor infestation but once our team arrives the damage could prove to be more extensive. Mold remediation is not a process that works well done a little at a time. We can evaluate the extent of the mold infestation(s) and provide you with a plan to abate the current damage and inhibit future recurrence.
 
SERVPRO technicians master training in Applied Microbial Remediation through IICRC coursework and then use that knowledge to assist with your mold problem. The procedure followed by our crews mirrors the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommendations for effective removal of mold and mildew while protecting residents and technicians and preventing the spread of the fungal materials.
 
Mold spores and the mycotoxins produced as the fungi multiply are irritating to susceptible individuals with allergies or sensitivities. When remediation occurs, it is essential not to disturb and broadcast these particles. SERVPRO technicians wear personal protective equipment and contain the area affected with physical barriers (plastic sheeting) during the project. We also employ air scrubbers, equipped with HEPA filters and use a ventilation system generating negative pressure allowing air to flow into but not out of the mold-contaminated spaces.
 
The mold colonies on non-porous surfaces scrape off well. Porous surfaces can be restored with techniques like soda blasting, a non-aggressive abrasive method that removes mold without damaging the surface. Debris is bagged, and residues vacuumed with HEPA-equipped equipment for disposal according to local codes. SERVPRO uses EPA registered disinfectants to treat the surfaces to inhibit regrowth. The moisture sources identified must be eliminated by appropriate contractors. If the dampness returns, so can the mold.
 
Have confidence that SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina can remediate mold damage stemming from any source of moisture. Call us at (626) 387-4111 for an inspection and consultation before we begin the work needed to abate the mold damage.
