Simple Approaches for Correcting Attic Mold Damage in Littleton
Team SERVPRO Offers Solutions for Recurring Problems During the Mold Remediation Process at a Home
Most of the homeowners do not know how to deal with mold damage in the attic area. When mold infestation is left unattended to for an extended period, then it can cause adverse property damage and health effects. It is critical to deal with the problem the moment it is spotted in your Littleton home to avoid further contamination.
Attic mold damage in Littleton is common, and it is attributable to four primary causes: inadequate or improper attic ventilation, bathroom fans that are improperly exhausted, when enough roofing is not installed, or due to past or existing roof leaks. When our SERVPRO technicians are performing the remediation, we first provide for the health and safety of the occupants and our team. We also put in place measures to ensure that the mold does not spread to the clean areas of the building.
Our SERVPRO professionals also analyze the extent of contamination and the amount of moisture saturation. It makes it easy to identify the moisture sources and the areas to clean and fix. If we discover the blown-in insulation is heavily infested, we remove it and disinfect the attic and later on introduce new insulation. Disinfection of surfaces neutralizes fungi and bacteria and minimizes chances of future mold growth problems.
The tiny mold spores usually settle on surfaces during the mold removal and cleanup procedures. We have to perform HEPA vacuuming to capture both the settling spores and dust. Our SERVPRO technicians also perform damp wiping of all soiled surfaces using detergents. We have extensive training and years of experience dealing with mold and getting to the hard-to-clean areas that can be very challenging. The crucial final step is correcting the moisture problem that initially contributed to the mold growth.
