Johnson Mold Infestations in Ductwork Call on SERVPRO for Remediation

SERVPRO Inspects and Remediates Mold Infestations in Johnson Properties

Finding signs of mold in your HVAC system can be jarring for some homeowners, and their reaction is understandable. Mold in ventilation systems could indeed pose serious health concerns and may indicate a much more significant problem around the home. However, you should not panic. SERVPRO has dealt with similar mold damage cases in Johnson and other local communities for years, and our technicians have helped to remove mold growth from dozens of HVAC systems in their time.
The first order of business when we respond to mold damage calls in Johnson is to identify location, size, and spread of the mold colony or colonies in question. Our inspectors use advanced detection equipment including thermal and moisture detectors to learn causes, locations, types, and maturity levels of mold patches in different areas. With this information, we can construct a model and estimates of how and why mold has spread in your home, and identify if mold is likely to be elsewhere in the home as well. Soon after, we use our expert treatments to make short work of the offending fungus.
But what does mold damage in the HVAC system mean for you? To start, it usually indicates a relatively severe mold problem. Small mold colonies with minimal impact do not often take root in ventilation systems, and usually, only mature colonies with fast-spreading spores can develop. Alternatively, if the colony originated in the vents, it may have quickly spread across the home as air currents take spores around the building.

Some types of mold may cause health effects, and if these species of mold are in ventilation systems, they make the entire house a biohazard and warrant a large-scale quarantine to prevent the spreading of mycotoxins. This, however, is rare, and should only result if the species mold is particularly dangerous. Through our treatments, we take care to thoroughly remove both visible growth and microscopic spores in the air, returning your home to its normal conditions before we pack up and leave. Every property contains mold, remediation when necessary, keeps it in check.
SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale has provided local homeowners with fast and thorough mold remediation and removal services for years. No matter how big or how serious the mold problem is, we can help. Call us at (479) 419-5544.
