Why SERVPRO Uses Advanced Equipment to Fight Mold Damage in Affected Lindenhurst Homes

7/14/2019 (Permalink)

Let us fight your Lindenhurst mold issues.

SERVPRO knows how to knock mold right out!

Presence of mold colonies in a house can pose health risks and contribute to the deterioration of the structure, among other things. Tracing the source of the infestation and cleaning out the mold debris is essential for the restoration process, but it can be time-consuming or challenging depending on the extent of the infestation. Using advanced equipment to manage different aspects of the damage helps.

Apart from infestations that develop after the incidence of water loss, other cases of mold damage affecting Lindenhurst homes indicate an underlying moisture problem. Failure to fix such a problem can lead to recurrence even after cleaning all the mold colonies. Advanced moisture detection equipment help in the tracing of moisture in materials, ensuring that steps to dry them can be taken. Our SERVPRO technicians use moisture meters, moisture sensors with probes, and even thermal cameras to trace wet areas. We also fix minor leaks to cut the moisture supply.

Mold produces considerable debris from the multiplication of spores and the deterioration of the materials that it affects. Such debris can transfer from the affected areas to other parts of the house as people move in and out or through air currents. Creating physical barriers between the affected areas and the rest of the house using plastic sheets can help, but it might not be sufficient. Using sophisticated equipment such as negative air pressure systems offers a guarantee against debris transfer. SERVPRO technicians use negative air exhaust fans and negative air fan scrubbers with HEPA filtration to manage debris during the restoration process.

Mold is associated with a musty smell that can make your home feel uncomfortable. The smell develops from the chemical reactions that occur during the development of mold colonies. In case of severe infestations, the smell might linger even after cleaning all traces of mold necessitating specific deodorization steps. Our SERVPRO technicians use a wide variety of equipment to deal with odor problems, including:

Air Scrubbers

Venting Box Fans

Dry Fogging Equipment

Wet Fogging Equipment
