Mold Damage Requires Expertise and SERVPRO Is Here For You!

3/31/2021 (Permalink)

Mold growth can create a hazardous situation for Chicago area homes and businesses, so understanding the threat of what you face and how to overcome the organism is critical. With thousands of varieties of mold and multiple causes for the moisture that can facilitate colonization, a thorough inspection and assessment of your property is an important first step. Testing the environment may be a vital process of both the mold inspection process and the final approval of effective remediation and restoration practices by our qualified technicians.  

Throughout the greater metropolitan area, our SERVPRO technicians help home and business owners with mold-related damages throughout the year. Our experienced team is ready to provide Mold Inspections and Air Sampling at your residence in Chicago Heights or commercial building. Knowing what to expect when our highly trained Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) arrive for an initial inspection can help you to understand how thorough this process is.  

When we first arrive, our inspection team works on establishing an idea of the relative humidity throughout the house and checks areas like the foundation for leaks and moisture penetration, as well as the plumbing, air ducts, the roof, and windows. We also look to identify any musty odors present on the property. It is very challenging for property owners to identify the presence of mold, especially without being able to see the mold directly.  

Mold Assessment - We offer indoor air quality and mold related assessments and consulting, providing our client’s remediation protocols, and we can conduct post-remediation assessments. The sampling of the environment from your home is sent to a nearby lab for further analysis. Under the charge of specialists, the concentration of mold spores can get determined.  

An elevated volume of spores and fungal presence can indicate contamination, and our SERVPRO remediation team must get to work on mitigation strategies. This same air testing can occur throughout the remediation process and after the restoration has completed showing that our work has made the property safe for occupation again.

You might not always know when mold damage could exist in your home or business, but our SERVPRO of Chicago Heights / Crete / Beecher Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) can help. Give us a call at (708) 672-0077 for a thorough mold inspection of your Chicago Heights area residential or commercial property.
