Reducing Humidity and Lessening Risk of Mold Damage in Your Azusa Property
Rely on Professional Mold Remediation Specialists
Humid areas of the country are more susceptible to battling mold growing in specific areas. Azusa is no stranger to humid conditions, and this scenario adds significant amounts of moisture to mold-prone areas of your house. By the time you smell mold, characterized by an unmistakable musty odor, colonies have already begun to grow in the area. This same smell could also indicate that it is time to seek the aid of professionals fully equipped to deal with colony removal and mold remediation.
If allowed to go undisturbed, the mold damage in your Azusa home that would ensue could require quite a lot of treatment to restore. In more extreme cases, the mold has caused such damage to organic materials in fabrics and surfaces that they cannot be salvaged by the restoration process. Since the moisture in the air is the catalyst to the problem you are facing, our SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians work quickly to diagnose the source of the moisture.
Once we have located the source of the humidity and moisture in the affected area, our specialists work with dehumidifying equipment to pull in the water from the air. We do not use heating fans for this process, as this is likely to spread spores around and allow them to seat into new areas and form new colonies. Instead, negative air chamber devices are used to neutralize airborne spores and prevent them from forming into the colonies that require further removal.
Once the colonies get eliminated with the use of scrubbers and other techniques, our SERVPRO technicians get to work on removing the threat of future problems by correcting the primary cause of the moisture in the first place. With this threat pacified, our remediation efforts extend to the restoration of the contents and structure of your home. The process begins with cleaning and disinfecting all of the affected surfaces and materials, working to completely restore the area to the condition it was in before the fungus grew.
While the process might seem simple, our licensed IICRC specialists at SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina are well educated in mold remediation techniques. Call us today at (626) 387-4111.
