Remediation of Mold Needed? Call SERVPRO

Southern California is known for some excessive humidity all year long, but what you might not realize is how this same common weather occurrence could be dramatically impacting your Winnetka home. Without proper maintenance of the moisture that is present in your home, coupled with mold spores that naturally exist in the air that we breathe, the conditions have been met for mold to start growing in your home.

Mold damage to your Winnetka home might not seem like that big of a deal, as many people have encountered that familiar musty odor and sight of spotty mold all throughout their lives. The more that gets understood about the fungus, and its relative health effects that it can cause families who become exposed to it, the more critical it is to get the situation resolved quickly.
 
Handling this situation on your own is not advisable, as your efforts to remove the mold colonies will very likely not remove the entire hyphae of the fungus and you can be circulating more spores in the process. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists are trained and certified to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards.
 
This extensive training familiarizes our antimicrobial remediation specialists in the various types of mold that exist, the proper protective equipment to use, and ultimately the process for completely removing mold colonies and preventing further spread of the colonies. With the use of HEPA filters and negative air chambers, spores in the air become neutralized throughout the remediation process. Scrubbers get employed to deep clean areas where colonies have been detected to eradicate the entire fungal organism.
 
Dehumidification is an integral part of the process and one that ensures that the conditions are no longer adequate to support growth. The removal of moisture from the air is something that the homeowner gets encouraged to continue after the remediation process is complete, to deter any future conditions which could be suitable for mold to grow again.
 
If you have encountered a musty smell in your home, or spotted mold growing on surfaces, call SERVPRO of Canoga Park / West Hills. Our experienced IICRC certified remediation specialists have the expertise and equipment to handle the issue. Give us a call anytime at (818) 998-1500.
