Facts You Should Know About Mold Remediation

Finding mold growing inside your Waldorf home can make alarm bells go off for many homeowners. There are concerns about how it can affect the family and household pets, the damage it might cause, plus the musty smell that comes with having a moldy home. SERVPRO® can help allay these and other apprehensions.

Most homeowners in Waldorf consider mold as something they need to eliminate from their property. Our mold remediation team knows this is not a realistic goal. Mold spores are a constant in any air sample, with some having more and others having fewer spores. We need to correct your home's environment to prevent future colonization of your property. Our team can help you with this, also.

Remediation depends on different steps to be successful, such as:

  • Removal and containment,
  • Odor control,
  • Rebuilding damaged areas, and
  • Preventative measures.

We use different methods to eliminate excess mold. The most effective methods include a way to contain the debris. Containment units we build with clear sheeting are basic but highly efficient. They work for dry ice pellet blasting and other abrading methods, including controlled demolition of structural and cosmetic elements.

Mold and its spores produce odors that many people find unpleasant. We know that eliminating these microbes can reduce scents. However, water damage is often present when we find mold. It also produces unwanted odors.

Microbial activity can destroy drywall, carpeting, wood, and concrete. SERVPRO can restore these elements of your Waldorf property and make it "Like it never even happened." 

Preventing future situations that encourage mold to grow is crucial because microbes are ever-present in even the cleanest homes. We use non-toxic applications, various fungicides, and dehumidification devices to make your home less inviting to microbes.

You can trust SERVPRO of Charles County and Oxon Hill with your Waldorf home when you find it needs mold remediation. We can also handle any instances of water damage that might be co-existing. Call us at (301) 753-8313 for services tailored to your needs.
