Areas With Mold Damage Need To Be Sectioned Off From Rest Of House

Team SERVPRO Can Help With Mold Damage

Mold damage is a genuine environmental problem that introduces the chance of significant property damage to homes. Anytime there is evidence of water damage or leaky pipes, there is always a chance of mold growth. It is paramount for homeowners to respond quickly to the first signs of mold. Our specialized team of experts at SERVPRO come to your location and perform an initial mold test and inspection to assess the damage. A mold problem tends to reflect a moisture problem in the home. The source of the moisture problem must be addressed to develop a long-term solution to the mold.

Once the mold is identified, we will contain the area and section it off from the rest of the property to prevent the mold spores from becoming airborne. An air filtration system is brought to the site to filter out the air and to remove existing mold spores from the air while our team works. The indoor air quality is a measure of the air in and around the building. The goal at SERVPRO is to eliminate your mold damage problem and return the indoor air quality to a safe level so you can return home. Our team removes the mold and any mold infested building materials. Once the mold is removed, we clean the area and contents that are not damaged by the mold. We apply anti-microbial sanitizing agents to prevent a regrowth of the mold problem.

There are various types of mold that can grow in homes. One of the most dangerous types of mold is known as toxic mold. Mold can be black in color or show up in other colors such as green. All mold is potentially dangerous. However, this is best determined by our team of specially trained experts.

Any time mold is observed on building materials, on walls, under cabinets or areas with pipes, it is time to call in the experts for a professional opinion. Never try to remove the mold yourself. The experts will come in and conduct a Westwood mold damage test to identify exactly the type of mold you are dealing with in your home. The type of mold classification will be referenced to its corresponding protocol.

Our team of highly trained specialists will provide you with a timeline of the removal process and what to expect with each step along the way. When you suspect or see mold, don't tackle it yourself. Call the mold experts at SERVPRO of Westwood/West Beverly Hills to assess the problem at (310) 390-7540.
