Mold Growth Found after a water damage in a home in Akron, Ohio.

There are several steps to take after finding mold in your home. It is important to remediate the mold problem because it could possibly affect your health and can cause severe damage to your home or business structure. The professional crews at SERVPRO of West Akron are highly trained in mold remediation. Here are the steps to take: 

First Step: You must inspect and do damage assessment of your property using technology to detect the mold and any hidden water sources.

Second Step: If mold is found it is important to isolate the area by containing the mold by using physical barriers and negative air pressure keeping the mold spores from spreading during the clean-up process.

Third Step: SERVPRO of West Akron has air filtration that captures the microscopic mold spores that are in the air by using air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of the spores during the remediation process.

Fourth Step: Removing the mold and the materials that are infested by mold by using anti-fungal and antimicrobial treatments. It is important to eliminate mold colonies from forming by removing and disposing of all mold-infested porous material like drywall and flooring.

Fifth Step: Cleaning contents and belongings by using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize furniture, decorative items, curtains and any other re-storable items affected by the mold. SERVPRO professionals also are trained in removing odors and deodorize using fogging equipment.

Final Step: Restoration may involve minor repairs such as replacing drywall, painting and installing new carpet or major repairs as reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
