Mold Damage Can Start Anywhere In Your Glendale Heights Residence

Microbes that cause problems inside a residence in Glendale Heights all require two things in common - water and cellulose material. Without these two things in constant supply, microbes die off, leaving only dormant spores behind. Because homes contain virtually unlimited amounts of plant-based materials, both in their structure and the things within them, we must control the water available so we can control the microbial populations.

When the moisture content inside a house rises, mold damage in Glendale Heights can start to spread. Microbial activity can happen anywhere, so we use special instruments that help us locate concentrations of moisture. Drying these locations back to within normal parameters means they become much less prone to mold damage. We also find the areas where moisture enters your house and get those locations sealed off, preventing further issues.

When we clean up mold, we might cause it to send out spores. To prevent the spread of these within your home, we take measures to contain them. We also do the same with all of the materials we remove. We want to keep your property from having any more problems with mold. Plastic sheeting and bags keep mold and its spores from escaping and spreading. We never carry loose materials around inside your house, as this can let spores enter the air and let mold particles fall to the floor.

We take steps to ensure that your home remains dry, as this makes the environment inhospitable to microbes. We can help you by using a desiccant machine that rapidly dries the air and then follows up with the installation of a dehumidifier or sump pump. Either can help keep the air drier, but each has specific purposes in different situations.

SERVPRO of Carol Stream / East Bloomingdale is always ready to answer your call and help you with the prevention and remediation of mold damage in your home. Call us at (630) 830-6236, so we can help keep your home free of excessive microbial activity.
