Mold Remediation What You Can Do When You Find Mold Damage in Your Hampton Home After a Vacation No matter the scope of the mold damage, our team will be able to remediate the area "Like it never even happened."

What to Expect When Mold Damage Strikes Your Hampton Home

You are always bound to forget something when packing for your vacation, but forgetting to close a bedroom window can lead to mold damage. Being away for two weeks while it rains off and on allows for water to breach your home. It can continuously soak your belongings and the structure of your house, which gives mold spores ample moisture to feed off of and expand. Fortunately, there are professionals close to you who can help.

When you find mold damage in your Hampton home, it is essential to call for remediation services as quickly as possible, as mold causes health effects. Additionally, mold also leaves behind a musty smell and has the power to rot organic materials. For health safety reasons, when you find mold, you should allow professionals and remediate it for you.

When SERVPRO arrives at your home, we can swiftly inspect the mold damage and then identify a remediation strategy. The first step to containing the problem is to set up plastic sheeting so the spores cannot spread while the colony is being removed. SERVPRO can block vents and any doorways to contain the problem.

Afterward, we can use tools such as air scrubbers to purify the air of foul odors and airborne mold spores while we work on removing the mold colonies from your bedroom. To remove mold from nonporous surfaces, SERVPRO can use disinfectant and scrub them away. However, when mold grows into porous surfaces, that is not enough. The drywall has to be removed, but SERVPRO can help you find a contractor who can fill the gaps left behind.

To help ensure that mold does not regrow, we can use dehumidifiers to get the moisture levels in your bedroom at an acceptable rate. Afterward, we can spray antifungal agents to help further ensure there is no regrowth.
