Mold Remediation Full-Service Solutions To Mold Damage Found In Your Portsmouth Area Home Mold Usually Requires Professional Help for Remediation--Rely on SERVPRO

Remediation Is More Complicated Than Wiping Up a Mold Stain

Mold reproduces by devouring organic materials used to construct your home. They prefer dark, damp, humid areas and create small, lightweight seeds, called spores. These seeds travel through the air, gaining access to portions of your Portsmouth home through open airways, or by catching a ride on your shoes or even a household pet.  

Mold spores can usually survive for a very long time, even before settling on an acceptable surface. However, after finding an adequate site, molds rapidly develop into large contaminated areas within 24 to 48-hours, continually spreading throughout your Portsmouth area home, causing mold damage as the growth process continues.   

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggests that any homeowner experiencing mold growth should seek professional help removing any standing water or wet materials found on your property, as they serve as breeding grounds for many microorganisms including viruses, bacteria, and mold. Whether you experience a freshwater flood, sewage back-up, roof leaks, or plumbing issues, mold and mildew can develop soon after.

A qualified mold remediation specialist, like those offered at SERVPRO, can provide you with the professional services you need to remedy the problem and even give you tips that help prevent mold growth in the future. It takes a keen eye and advanced equipment to combat mold found on your property, especially on larger areas where there may also be hidden dangers that exist. SERVPRO’s mold remediation specialists use physical methods to remove contaminated materials, following strict guidelines to contain the affected area, preventing further spread and limiting exposure to clean sections of your home. We pay close attention to furniture, upholstery items, bedding, and toys, using advanced cleaning and disinfection techniques to restore contents if at all possible.
 
SERVPRO technicians may inspect every section of your home to determine how far the contamination has spread, eliminating potential problems one at a time before installing new materials that make your home look like new again.
