Removing Mold Damage From Your Home

While mold and its spores exist almost everywhere, the presence of an excessive number of these can affect your Alpharetta home's air. While mold causes damage to materials and belongings, it can also decrease the quality of the air that your family breathes.

Residents in Alpharetta often find mold damage affects their home in visible ways. However, the microbial count in the air should always remain low. When mold reproduces, it uses airborne spores to accomplish the task of spreading to another area for colonization. While these spores remain suspended, people breathe them in, which can cause health effects.

Removing the mold growing inside your home, including inside crawl spaces and other non-living areas, can protect your home and your family's health. SERVPRO's technicians hold certificates from the IICRC in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT). Prepared to not only locate unknown locations of mold growth but also to remediate microbial populations until they reach normal levels, we use the latest in technological advances and developments to help protect your home from mold growth.

Normal levels of microbial activity rarely pose problems, and no one can provide the total elimination of mold or other tiny microorganisms. This is partly because microbes continuously enter into your home. Using their favored mode of transport, air currents, we do eliminate the bulk of them by creating negative pressure in areas suffering from mold growth. Along with containment set up, we use air scrubbers to forcefully pull the air, and any particles suspended in it, out of your home.

Using negative pressure significantly reduces the number of spores able to infiltrate uncontaminated areas of your home. This is crucial for protecting your home during the removal of contaminated materials. As we work in removing anything with mold damage, the mold releases spores into the air. We wear personal protective equipment so we can safely work in such situations. We also wear this equipment during cleaning of non-porous materials, and during the application of antimicrobial agents.

SERVPRO of North Fulton County removes mold damage, prevents future mold colonization, and cleans the air during remediation services. Protecting your home is a crucial part of protecting your family's health. Call us, 24/7, at (770) 992-2777 for the latest in technological advances and equipment that can make any restoration work fast and effective.
