Why to Call SERVPRO When You Have Mold Issues | SERVPRO® of Reno Southwest
Mold needs three things to grow: moisture, temperature and time.
Anytime there’s a water leak or standing water, or anytime an area of your home has relative humidity that rises above 50% (this happens most often in bathrooms or basements), there’s an increased chance of mold growth.
Mold grows best at temperatures above 77 degrees Fahrenheit, so when indoor temperatures reach that level, the odds of mold growth in damp areas are exponentially increased. This is why it’s even more important to keep humidity down during the warmer months of the year.
Mold removal is no easy feat, nor is it a safe one. If mold is handled improperly, it can spread, fling spores into the air and become an even greater danger. That’s why you need the thorough removal process only SERVPRO provides.
The SERVPRO Process
Our process starts with you. We don’t make assumptions about what you need or try to force solutions on you that your situation doesn’t require. We’ll work with you for a custom solution to your mold issue.
Once we know the specifics, we get to work finding every instance of mold and growth, using the best, most accurate techniques available to detect mold and hidden water sources. Then we move to contain the outbreak, using high-grade equipment to create negative air pressure, which keeps mold from spreading during removal.
We filter the air with powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums, capturing microscopic spores to keep them out of your building’s airflow. We work tirelessly to eliminate mold colonies based on the specific growth your home is experiencing.
Restoration: The Secret Sauce
The work isn’t over when the mold is gone. Another thing that sets SERVPRO apart is our commitment to restoration and recovery.
We’ll clean and sanitize your belongings, furniture, decorative items, even your clothes, to make sure your house is completely mold-free and safe. Then we finish the job by restoring areas of the home that may have been damaged by the mold—we’ll handle anything from drywall and carpet to reconstruction of entire rooms and areas.
