SERVPRO Open windows for fresh air sign Morristown mold remediation needs the help of SERVPRO. We will be on-site within 4 hours of the initial call.

Mold Removal Relies on Powerful Products

Mold is underrated and underappreciated as a destructive force against homes and businesses in the area. Even with a prompt response to these situations, organisms can still deteriorate hosting organic materials and require direct restoration measures like a controlled demolition. Sometimes, however, surface cleaning can be effective for:

  • Attic
  • Basement
  • Crawlspace
  • Bathroom
  • Kitchen

Sporicidal Agents Can Help

Mold removal in Morristown should often start with surface cleaning strategies. Sporicidal agents and antimicrobial products are applied to surfaces with light mold damage to eliminate these spores on contact or after a short exposure time. In many cases, the base of these solutions is strong chlorine or biocides, which can even help to make a surface uninhabitable to migrating mold spores as remediation continues.

Surface Cleaning and Air Filtration

Surface cleaning is less effective if the circulation of mold spores and the migration of these organisms have not been resolved. Combining the use of sporicidal agents with efforts like HEPA air filtration can allow the surface cleanup to be more efficient and effective. Air filtration is also one of the primary components in preventing the continued spread of microbial threats in the house.

What if Surface Cleaning Is Not Working?

While surface cleaning is one of the preferred options for restoration and remediation after mold exposure, this is not the only option available. SERVPRO also utilizes more aggressive and abrasive tactics when this outermost cleaning will not suffice. Options here include media blasting, sanding, and controlled demolition.

If you think mold could be growing in your home or business, you should act quickly to resolve this growing and spreading threat. It does not take long for a manageable mold situation to get out of control. Our SERVPRO of Hamblen County team is ready and able to help when you call (423) 318-6733.
