How Belleville Residents Overcome Mold Damage during the Winter Months

Microbes- which include fungi, bacteria, and viruses- need three things to grow: food, water, and warmth. During wet periods of the month, central heating combined with wet conditions can cause a benign mold issue to get out of control. Microscopic spores can settle on damp surfaces and find an abundant food source in the home, including insulation, drywall, duck work, and crawlspace materials. Malfunctioning sump pumps, blocked drainage, or appliances can also lead to uncontrolled microbial issues that may require professional assistance to bring back under control.

You might want to look into professional mold damage remediation in Belleville if you have a stubborn microbial issue that either presents a challenge to remove or returns days after removal. SERVPRO technicians hold qualifications from the nationally recognized Institute of Cleaning, Restoration and Certification body. We can help you to get back control of a tricky mold situation and give you advice about how to avoid repeat visits. Using a wide range of chemical cleaners, anti-microbial treatments, and equipment, we can help to restore your home to its reasonable, preloss condition.

Air quality can suffer as a result of microbial growth. Mold colonies release spores into the indoor environment as well as producing unpleasant malodors. SERVPRO can bring in premium High-efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) scrubbers to help remove unwanted spores from an indoor environment. These devices are especially useful in closed areas that do not receive natural air-passages or become difficult to ventilate.

Existing mold colonies can be scrubbed or scraped, away, and the affected area treated with a thorough disinfectant. These chemicals help to destroy spores that are invisible to the naked eye, as well as the colonies themselves. In some situations it repainting may be necessary to restore your home to its preloss condition. SERVPRO can use anti-microbial paints to suppress odors as well as providing a clean, mold-resistant base-layer for further decoration.
