Why is it important to call a professional for mold removal?

4/25/2018 (Permalink)

Mold grows in cool, dark, moist places. Mold spreads by releasing spores into the air. If the very act of removing mold disturbs the mold and releases those spores, how then does one get rid of it?

Spraying mold with bleach is ill advised, as the bleach contains more water than active ingredient, which can lead to sustaining the mold rather than killing it.

Painting over the mold doesn’t stop it from growing, it simply spreads the mold to a larger area.

The State of Colorado requires asbestos testing be done before the removal of building materials. Improperly tearing out mold infested materials not only runs the risk of disturbing mold spores but also the risk of asbestos contamination of the entire home. Is it worth the risk?

Call SERVPRO Golden/Wheat Ridge/Evergreen at 303-279-8055 for professional assistance in removing mold from your home.

Our trained technicians will assess the damage, set up a containment area, safely remove the mold damaged materials and treat the remaining surfaces to inhibit further growth. Once the mold is removed from the structure our technicians will set up drying equipment to ensure the site is no longer holding moisture and place an air scrubber with HEPA filtration to remove any remaining mold from the air. Why worry about mold spreading? Call SERVPRO and let us make it  “Like it never even happened”.
