SERVPRO Detects and Remediates Mold Damage

Microbes reside alongside us, no matter where we live or work in Chicago. They come in many different types, and mold is one of the most prolific of these microorganisms.

Chicago homeowners can protect their homes from mold damage by keeping an eye on the humidity levels in their homes. However, once mold damage begins to grow, it becomes more difficult to regain control of your home. Homeowners often find that cleaning with bleach does little to prevent reinfestation. This is because mold penetrates into the surfaces on which it is growing.

Our technicians receive training in the latest methods of mold remediation and control. Microbial growth can indicate high humidity from different sources, but our equipment can detect where those sources are located. Without them showing us where leaks, drips, missing shingles, and other sources of water exist, we would have much less ability to stop microbes from affecting your home in the future.

Microbes of all kinds can cause health effects in individuals, and mold is not an exception. Finding mold in your bathroom, garage, attic, or anywhere else in your home means it can also remain hidden in other locations. Hidden mold can send out spores that travel to other areas, only to wait for spikes in humidity that can trigger growth.

In inspections of homes across the country, researchers found that windowsills contain the highest amounts of mold, showing that mold particles and spores travel easily in the air. Air scrubbers help eliminate these living particles as we work, so they remain trapped and unable to spread. Other ways we contain microbes and keep them from traveling on air currents is with heavy plastic sheeting. It may seem simple, but the use of such materials remains highly effective.
