IICRC trained poster Count on SERVPRO's IICRC-certified technicians for the mold remediation of your Mansfield property to make it appear "Like it never even happened."

Removing Mold Damage Quickly in Mansfield

With severe weather and year-round humidity a concern for the area, microbial growth and fungal spores in homes and businesses can often develop into more significant problems. Certain areas of the property are more prone to facilitating these colonies than others. SERVPRO professionals can expect to encounter mold organisms in:

  • Bathrooms
  • Basements
  • Attics
  • Kitchens
  • Laundry Rooms
  • Crawlspaces

Mansfield mold damage can be more than a physical threat to your property. While it is true that microbial colonies destroy organic matter, the infestation makes a comfortable living for the household a challenge. Our experienced remediators can help when you need it.

How Do You Know Mold is in Your Home?

Suspecting mold and confirming mold are two very different steps. The presence of moisture in your home is rarely enough to validate suspicions. In most cases, you are looking for clear, indicative signs that colonies have taken root in hosting materials, such as strong, musty smells in the environment or visible spotting on drywall and carpeting.

Inspection and Remediation Planning

One of the earlier actions that our professionals can take to help is to inspect the property. It is often overwhelming to consider the magnitude of spreading organisms, but our SERVPRO team of AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians can thoroughly assess involved spaces to create a direct restoration and remediation plan. We can minimally utilize approaches like controlled demolition in this exploratory stage to track mold damage into wall systems and various testing options.

Clearing Active Colonies from Your Home

Colonies can be present in different severities and impact several hosting materials. Using a combination of remediation strategies, we must overcome these threats as they exist. Typical options here include:

  • Surface Cleaning – The least invasive and aggressive surface cleaning involves sporicidal products and antimicrobial solutions in our inventory scrubbed into the surface of hosting materials to eliminate spores.
  • Dry Ice Blasting - SERVPRO can pressurize sodium bicarbonate, dry ice, walnuts, and countless other abrasive media with water or air to blast away surface mold threats on semi-porous materials.
  • Removing Materials – The last resort for mold removal is eliminating the affected material. Controlled demolition is a straightforward and effective solution for remediation.

Mold Damage Repairs Are Needed

Many threats to your home after a mold incident can compromise structural integrity. It is essential to overcome these concerns promptly to prevent the situation from worsening as remediation nears completion, the project shifts to build-back and repairs with our general contractor license. Keeping this work in-house makes it easier for projects to be completed quickly and correctly, not to mention at a more reasonable cost for the customer. After mold threats to a residence, build-back needs may include:

  • Plumbing Repairs
  • Mold Prevention
  • Material Replacement

Removing Mold Malodors After Remediation

One of the lingering impacts of mold damage on your property is a robust and musty odor. Volatile organic compounds are emitted from active colonies in your home, which your nose can quickly identify in the structure near where colonization occurs. Encountering musty smells can often be an initial line of defense in getting remediation work started, but completely removing these strong odors requires more than surface cleaning approaches. We have potent deodorants and neutralizing equipment to manage open-air threats and trapped smells.

Mansfield mold damage is more common for homes and businesses than property management might think. Professional remediation services are vital to protecting a structure as challenging as these organisms can be and the rapid rate it spreads.
