Mold Remediation to a Home in Springdale
SERVPRO Provides the Solutions to Mold Infestations
There is no hype about mold and there's no 'dealing with it' either. Mold growth has the potential to destroy homes and even cause health problems; sometimes severe. It must be aggressively sought out and destroyed.
Mold damage in a Springdale home can cause thousands of dollars in replacement and restoration costs if not quickly discovered. If it has spread past a safe level determined by the state of Arkansas, then all occupants have to leave until that level has been returned to normal. SERVPRO has decades of experience in cleaning and removing mold growth from hundreds of homes and can do the same for you.
Once you've determined (or suspect) that you have a mold problem, the first item our inspectors will look for is excess moisture. Mold can grow in warm or cold temperatures, but without a high enough level of moisture, it's just some dry, microscopic spores waiting to be vacuumed up and properly eliminated.
Our SERVPRO technicians have several options to reduce moisture levels. If standing water is discovered, a pump will be used to remove it. If there is no visible source of water, but testing equipment shows that floors and walls are wetted or damp, then members of our response team will deploy space heaters to raise the temperature. As this happens, dehumidifiers are placed to draw the moisture from the surrounding building material and furniture. If needed, exhaust fans will also be used to blow moist air (and loose mold spores) out of your home.
As the moisture levels are being lowered, the building material in the affected area will be examined. If mold has already found its way into drywall panels, they will need to be removed and replaced. In a few cases, the infected material can be cut away, but since drywall is such a good food source for mold growth, we firmly recommend removing all mold damaged sections. This same recommendation applies to other wall coverings and many types of carpets and ceiling tiles as well.
The goal with this rapid response is to get you back into your home as fast as we safely can.
