SERVPRO Tools Thoroughly Clean Mold-Damaged Raleigh Homes

Mold is one of the most common residential disaster concerns. Some estimates put the number of homes affected by these microbes at 70 percent. So long as a home harbors a humid space with adequate temperatures and ample organic material, mold can continue to thrive and potentially create health effects for property occupants.

SERVPRO mold remediation services halt Raleigh home mold concerns with 24-hour availability and effective mitigation tools operated by trained technicians. SERVPRO-certified professionals follow Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) best practices for handling residential mold concerns.

SERVPRO's repertoire of mold remediation tools

One of the key elements to successfully remediating mold in a given home, especially in hard-to-reach areas like wall and ceiling cavities, is having the right tools. SERVPRO professionals can:

  • Remove unsalvageable debris and dry spore clusters with personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Use duct, window, and doorway-sealing procedures to minimize the potential for mold to spread to other rooms. HEPA-filter air scrubbers can also be used to reduce local air pressure, making it more difficult for spores to become airborne and migrate to other areas of the home
  • Remediate relative humidity and moisture on surfaces with extraction equipment, including carpet wands and truck-mounted units. Air movers and dehumidifiers work together after extraction finishes to dry the space. Mold growth is effectively halted when moisture levels are kept below 40 to 50 percent.
  • Perform odor control for surfaces after mold spores have been remediated to pre-contamination levels with the help of ultra-low volume (ULV) foggers, which use water- and solvent-based solutions to remediate mold-related odors at the particle level.

Homeowners can call (919) 615-1160 for assistance from SERVPRO of South Cary / Apex. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster and can respond 24 hours a day.
