SERVPRO Has the Solutions for Mold Remediation for Your Chicago Property
What to Do When You Find Mold in Your Chicago Home
Taking care of your Chicago home can feel like a full-time job at some points in your life. When the situation you face leads to persistent moisture concerns in areas like your crawlspace, basement, or cellar areas, things could be even more challenging to keep in check. Moisture can allow for damages that exceed the abilities of even the handiest of homeowners, requiring professional restoration and remediation work to resolve.
Fungal growth can allow for mold damages throughout areas of your Chicago home. The more widespread these colonies can become, the more destructive and hazardous they become as well. Identifying them might be as fundamental as noticing a musty odor through specific areas of your home that cannot get identified, or laying eyes on an active colony in affected areas. Whatever led you to the discovery, it is critical to take care of the situation as quickly as possible.
One of the first things that you should do when you encounter mold growth in your home is to devise a way to keep your family and pets away from the growth. Exposure to the colonies has gotten linked with several potential health effects, and prolonged exposure can only increase the likelihood of these conditions occurring. You need to reach out to our SERVPRO emergency response team to help you assess the situation and to set up precautionary measures to limit the spread of this colony as remediation work is getting prepared to begin.
Though attacking a colony on your own may seem like a logical option, consider the truth that there are over a dozen common mold varieties that could grow in your home. Many of these require specific equipment or approaches to remove, and our SERVPRO professionals have the unique training and experience to determine what the situation needs to remove the colony entirely.
Perhaps the most important thing to remember in this situation is that the spread of the mold colony and the destruction that it can cause to structural elements of your home is not going to get better on its own. Our SERVPRO of Hyde Park / E. Bridgeport / Bronzeville technicians can help you through every step of the colony removal and restore your home to the way it used to be. Give us a call anytime at (312) 509-5000.
