Removing Mold Damage in Dayton Indiana
SERVPRO Thoroughly Investigates a Mold Infestation Before Remediation
Mold spores are in every home in Dayton and throughout Indiana. Usually, they are inert, which makes them as harmless as regular household dust particles. Spores only expand and begin to grow when they come into contact with enough moisture. If a mold colony grows undetected for an extended amount of time, it can become a threat to each home and can cause health effects for those living inside it.
If caught quickly, it is simple to remove Dayton mold damage with a variety of cleaning methods. Often, even growing mold is dry, almost a powder. SERVPRO technicians can use cloths and sponges to wipe down structural and personal property surfaces, which removes the majority of growth in most homes. For thicker layers of mold, we can bring in vacuums with HEPA filters that are designed to trap even a single spore off the surface of a table, sofa or wall.
When there is moisture present or if the mold is growing in a puddle or pool of water, we need to neutralize the spores and remove the water. Our technicians can spray the mold with an anti-fungal agent and then use a pump or extraction wand to remove standing water. If the surrounding material is soaked, we can dry it out with a combination of dehumidifiers to draw moisture out and a space heater to slowly raise the temperature without drying it too quickly and causing secondary damage.
Building material like drywall can quickly become compromised, however. If the mold was present long enough to extend hyphae into the panel, searching for food, then the panel needs to be replaced. SERVPRO technicians can remove each infested panel and dispose of them according to EPA and state guidelines. To prevent possible, further mold growth, we can spray the wall framing with an anti-fungal agent.
