Professional Mold Remediation Salvages Syracuse Homes

It is distressing to find mold on your property, but you should not panic. Mold should be tackled before it spreads and become a bigger issue as it can ruin household valuables. SERVPRO technicians are well-versed in containing the spread of mold even in hard-to-reach places without damaging your Syracuse home structure.

Mold thrives in moist conditions, so mold removal at a Syracuse home should involve cleaning up existing mold while preventing new growth by addressing the moisture source. Also, the location of the mold is important as it affects how easily it is to detect and remove the colonies.

Hard to reach spots where mold grows include;

  • Attic
  • Crawlspace
  • Ducts and vents

Attics are among the common areas where mold grows in the home since they tend to have the perfect conditions for growth. This is not an area where most homeowners regularly check; hence mold grows undisturbed. Signs of attic mold may include dark stains on plywood, water dripping from ceiling fans or smoke detectors, and a musty smell.

Steps towards mold removal

  • Isolate the contaminated area
  • Remove all wet and mold-damaged materials
  • Discard all moldy materials in plastic bags
  • Clean and dry the affected area

Mold mitigation measures

It is unnecessary to take a wrecking ball to the whole house at the sight of a little mold. We can only focus on the affected area. For instance, mold in one corner of the drywall needs to be cut out and replaced even though we may have to clean the adjoining rooms.

Our technicians seal the work area using plastic sheeting, preventing mold debris from dispersing throughout your home. We usually discard moldy, porous building materials like drywall, insulation, and baseboards instead of restoring them because their spores grow network structures beneath the surface. Therefore even after cleaning, the hyphae remain.

SERVPRO of East Onondaga County helps you determine the best course of action in mold removal, thus limiting the chances of a recurrence. Call us at (315) 446-8776. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
