SERVPRO Technicians Effectively Remediate Mold Damage in Your Home

Cleaning your home in Crested Butte on a regular basis keeps things healthy for your family. However, even the most thoroughly cleaned house can still harbor microbial infestations. At SERVPRO, we take this problem seriously and gain the skills needed to remediate homes in our community successfully.
We want families to live in homes without worrying about the health effects that mold damage in Crested Butte can cause in some individuals. Because mold, like any other microbe, requires water to survive, we use our moisture detection devices to locate any water sources that mold and mildew might use. Once taken care of, we can begin remediating the mold currently present in your home.
While we perform the remediation of your house's mold damage, we use clear 6-millimeter polypropylene sheeting to keep heavily infested areas enclosed. Doing this protects the other areas of your home from exposure through the natural release of spores which increase when we disturb a mold colony. These areas often direct contaminated air out of your home or into a HEPA filter, which traps any debris. Mold particles, spores, dust, and other small particles produced when we cut away materials with mold damage can spread contamination quite easily.
We clean some areas exhibiting mold infestation with a vacuum cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter while we clean other surfaces in your property with damp cleaning cloths. As we clean the mold-covered surfaces, we also work on drying out your residence's interior. Because we need to keep from disturbing any mold more than necessary, we also use dehumidifiers that create a low-airflow current. They still strip moisture from the air but do so without creating any new air currents that could prove counter-productive.
Once we have cleared your home of the majority of mold-damaged materials, we can then use stronger dehumidifiers to finish the drying process. Trapped water vapor can lead to other problems, as well, so eliminating this provides substantial protection to your property. SERVPRO technicians with IICRC certification in Odor Control (OCT) can also address any remaining musty odors. We want to make all of our customers satisfied with our work, so we work closely with each one throughout the entire job, from start to finish.
