SERVPRO - Removing Mold Damage From Tallassee Homes

Few Tallassee homeowners think of mold when someone says anything relating to home disasters. Active mold spore infestations do not leave everything underfoot wet, and they do not generate heat and smoke. Even so, this quiet disaster costs homeowners millions of dollars every year in restoration and replacement expenses. It is almost like mold tailored its effects for the quiet, Alabama life we enjoy here.

Eliminating Tallassee mold damage means finding and destroying every active mold spore, cleaning all viable surfaces, and disposing of anything past the point of restoration. SERVPRO cleanup and repair teams follow a method that has helped our company return thousands of homes to their owners in a clean, safe condition.

First, we seal off the infested area of the home. Team members use heavy, plastic sheeting to cover windows, air vents, doorways, and other points of entry and exit to isolate the mold and prevent any active spores from getting into other parts of the structure.

Our next step is to determine the extent of the infestation and the type of property affected. The property falls into three categories, which tells inspectors what tools and chemicals are needed to destroy the spores and remove them from porous, non-porous, and semi-porous property.

Porous property, such as upholstered furniture and drywall panels, we first wipe down with a dry sponge and cleaning cloths. If the mold damage layer is thick, technicians have the option of using mild cleaners to break them up for easier removal. Carpets are also porous, so SERVPRO specialists have the option of using a vacuum with a HEPA filter designed to capture mold spores and remove them.

Non-porous property is items like marble countertops and metal refrigerator cabinets. For these items, dry sponges and a mild cleaner often take care of the problem. For thicker layers, technicians can use a stronger, anti-fungal cleaner to break them up and remove safely.

Semi-porous property includes brick and concrete surfaces such as fireplaces and patios. Removing mold is more difficult and may require team members to use stronger cleaning agents and stiff brushes to work all spores loose from cracks and seams; they follow-up with vacuums and HEPA filters to capture all loose spores.

The process to remove mold is not a simple one, but SERVPRO of Prattville takes every action needed to make your home safe again. If you need us, call (334) 358-1186 today to schedule an inspection or bring in one of our restoration teams to get started.
