SERVPRO Resources Ease Morristown Mold Remediation

Mold is not a new phenomenon for most people since it is commonly seen in many outdoor locations. However, when it affects the indoor areas of your Morristown home, you have more to worry about apart from the ruined finishes. You might be unaware of the unique challenges that mold removal can present, especially if it is left to develop uncontrollably.

You need the right resources for convenient mold removal from your Morristown property. The primary resource is knowledge since it helps you analyze the extent of the contamination and decide which equipment or supplies are necessary to arrest the situation. Involving SERVPRO gives unfettered access to information since our teams include IICRC-certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians.

Crucial information for mold remediation

  • Porous or nonporous materials affected
  • Concealed or open infestation
  • The stage of contamination
  • The moisture situation 

Mold can proliferate on surfaces covered by drywall, wallpaper, and carpets. Each of these materials has some uniqueness that can affect the remediation procedures. For instance, if a surface is layered with wallpaper, stripping it off is essential before thinking of other remediation processes since colonies proliferate beneath the wallpaper. Mold devastates porous materials as its hyphae penetrate surfaces, so it is impossible to complete remediation without cutting tools to remove the deteriorated materials. SERVPRO is equipped with a variety of tools, including precision cutting instruments.

Changes That Mold Undergoes

Once mold contamination starts on your property, the situation changes fast as the colonies go through growth stages like sporulation, vegetative, and reproduction. During sporulation, the problem is mostly at the surface. Remediation mostly requires light methods such as damp wiping surfaces with antimicrobial agents and drying excess moisture. Once fungal growth sets it, potent cleaning action is necessary. Our SERVPRO technicians wire brush or sand away mold colonies.

Other useful remediation methods

  • Soda blasting
  • Dry ice blasting
  • HEPA vacuuming
