Remediating mold damage from your home

Some Concord homeowners feel encouraged to try to handle a mold infestation on their own. Although you may feel empowered with a bottle of diluted chlorine bleach spray in one hand, entrusting the mold remediation tasks to our professionals is a wiser and potentially less costly decision. Our trained technicians and safer yet more efficient mold treatments and protocols keep everyone safe and adapt to manage mold outbreaks more extensive than first believed.

Mold damage in Concord is not something to embarrass or panic a homeowner. It merely shows the link between two elements that are common in any home -- mold spores and water. Mold spores float and settle everywhere indoors and out. They are an essential natural component in breaking down dead vegetation and abandoned organic materials outdoors. Indoors their growth is unwanted, but it follows the same process as in the natural world -- water absorbed by a mold spore jump starts its life cycle. Colonies develop, needing only the moisture and air and a surface made of or coated with organic materials. No light is required, so they often multiply in the dark and hidden areas of your home.

The hyphae that make up a mold colony can penetrate porous surfaces such as insulation, fabrics, and drywall. Unlike the professional products used by SERVPRO, DIY remedies like diluted bleach or other pre-formulated cleaners often only work on a very superficial level. Dark mold stains may lighten, or mildew in the corner of the shower might disappear for a few days, but the mold returns quickly. When these water-based products soak into the drywall, grout, or insulation, they are not strong enough to kill the outbreak. The high percentage of water in these mixtures instead can feed the mold.

When the SERVPRO remediation crew takes on the task, a different emphasis results in more successful results. A Microbial Remediation Supervisor reviews your scenario, evaluating the extent of the mold damage and devising a comprehensive plan to contain and remove the mold infestation. We use barriers or negative pressure air scrubbers to protect unaffected areas of your home while observing proper procedures to clean up lingering debris and lawfully dispose of all moldy materials. Scraping and the use of gentle abrasives like sodium bicarbonate loosens and removes the mold below the surface.

SERVPRO of Marlboro / Concord commits to offer residents in our community reliable mold damage remediation. Contact us at (978) 486-9868 to set up an appointment for a mold consultation, including suggestions on how to eliminate the water intrusions causing the growth.
