SERVPRO Safely Remediates Mold Patches from Your Watertown Home

Mold Remediation Is Professionally Remediated by SERVPRO

With Round Lick Creek and Beach Log Creek running through town, the threat of flooding and other water damage is an ongoing concern. Water is usually easy to remove though it's simple to tell when it's gone. That's not what catches so many homeowners by surprise.

If not discovered or left untreated, mold can do more damage to a Watertown home or business than six inches of standing water. Since it is impossible to clean 100% of these fungi, what we at SERVPRO works to is the sanitary level. This is the point where it is safe to allow occupants to return to the home or business. By comparison, an operating room is not considered safe until it is cleaned to a sterile level. A sterile environment is just not possible or necessary in the average home.

We achieve a sanitary level of cleaning with extensive testing and using some of the best equipment in the restoration business. Our inspectors and technicians are trained to industry standards. These IICRC certified in AMRT, applied microbial remediation technicians, have the skill set to defeat mold outbreaks.

We'll begin with a complete building inspection. If any mold spores are discovered, our inspectors will trace it to the source and discover just how extensive it may be. If the infestation hasn't reached your HVAC system, our technicians will seal off all vents and duct work to prevent any possible spread during the cleaning process.

The next step will be to set up a series of exhaust fans to blow any spores in the infected area out of the building during cleaning. To reduce the moisture of the room, carpets, and floors, technicians will also set up a series of dehumidifiers to return them to their normal moisture content.

Now, anti-microbial and anti-fungal cleaners and foggers will be deployed to neutralize it. Once the source has been mitigated, then our technicians will begin work to remove the mold spore dust and other particulates using specialized, commercial vacuums with HEPA filters and air scrubbers.

If you suspect mold damage in your home or business, call us today at (615) 449-5000 for an inspection and to begin the restoration process. SERVPRO of Wilson County is ready to support our civilian and military communities.
