Everett Homeowners Should Call SERVPRO to Reduce the Threat of Mold.

What Does Mold Do to Area Homes?

Mold is in every Everett home. SERVPRO restoration technicians know that the spores are usually inert and as harmless as ordinary dirt. They only become an active threat after absorbing enough water to expand and start growing across surfaces. The growth can stain property, dig into surfaces, and exude odors. 

Why is SERVPRO Necessary to Restore a Home?

Professional mold remediation requires training far beyond spraying bleach on mold growth and painting over it. SERVPRO technicians have an extensive chemical inventory to clean surfaces. They also have a wide variety of equipment to repair and restore everything from floor trim to support structures when the mold penetrates surfaces. 

  • Sanders and Scrapers – These tools enable us to remove a top layer of wood and other surfaces to pull out the trapped mold as well. 
  • Dry Ice Blasting -- The generated air pressure can force the pellets as deeply as the mold hyphae to force it out of the wood. This also does not increase the moisture levels due to the sublimation. Technicians then use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to remove the mix of powder and mold particles. 
  • Soda-blasting devices – If the mold growth is on the surface of drywall or other such surfaces,  remediation technicians have access to a soda-blaster to gently remove the colonies without disturbing the substrate. Technicians then use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to remove the mix of powder and mold particles.
  • Foggers – Technicians generate a cloud of cleaning particles that can match with the odor-causing spores that penetrated deeply into a surface. These devices are especially useful in tight areas otherwise unreachable.

What Other Threats Do Mold Spores Present in Area Homes?

Mold can cause health effects in some people. These occurrences are rare, however. That is why SERVPRO concentrates its efforts on the physical damage active mold growth can have on the structure in each home and its contents.
