Mold in the House: SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle provides mold remediation for your home or office
Discovering mold in your home or office can be alarming. If mold is discovered, you can contact SERVPRO for an assessment before taking any action. First things first, do not attempt to clean, scrub or disturb mold, as the spores will easily distribute into the air. If you have fans or an open window nearby blowing in the area, turn it off or eliminate any breezes. Mold spreads easily and by scrubbing it or allowing wind to reach the affected area, the spores will simply move to another area.
Removing Mold from the House or Office
Calling a mold remediation expert like SERVPRO will allow for a number of actions to take place. The first thing we do is find the source of the mold. There may be a leak, a water or moisture source that contributed to the mold growth. Our trained mold technicians will find the source, eliminate further damage, assess the situation, contain the existing problem and remove the mold. Also, we will professionally clean the affected areas and contents, as well as provide air filtration and provide any restoration, if needed.
What to do with Mold
If you find mold in the house or office, again, here are a few tips on what to do (and what not to do):
- Do not touch or scrub mold
- Turn off any fans or blowing air (HVAC)
- Do not spray any bleach or chemicals on the mold
