Inspection and Remediation Partner to Kill Mold

The rainy weather combined with high humidity throughout the surrounding area that we are experiencing these days serves to create the perfect environment for mold growth in our homes. Do you take the proper precautions to mediate the existence of mold in your home? Mold doesn't just exist in basements, walls, or other hidden spaces in your home. The truth is, when the right conditions are present, mold spores can grow out of control anywhere. These microscopic spores are a consistent part of our ecological system; they assist within our environment in many different ways, and we do not have the power to eliminate them entirely, nor should we.

When you experience mold damage in your Country Club Hills home, you should contact a professional mold remediation service to correct the situation properly. Our staff can provide you with a fast, efficient mediation service that you'll need; anytime you need us. We can help you fight back against mold spores that exist in your home environment. You are not alone in dealing with these types of situations. 
SERVPRO technicians are expertly trained and follow FEMA guidelines regarding the handling and disposal of materials exposed to microscopic mold spores. If your home has recently experienced flooding, sewage back-ups, plumbing or roof leaks, constant overflows from sinks or tubs. Or, you have a consistently damp basement and higher than normal humidity in your living area; you are at risk of developing mold colonies in your walls that can spread throughout your home, that may eventually cause health effects to particular members of your family. 
At SERVPRO, we approach each situation differently, providing you with only the services you need to tackle your unique issues. However, a standard mold damage remediation service involves certain steps. We begin by locating the source of the water, whether that entails fixing leaky pipes, preventing seepage from outside sources or covering dirt in crawl spaces with plastic to prevent additional moisture from getting in. 
Excessive moisture on the inside of ventilation ducts, combined with small particles produce mold spores on the inside surface and spread these spores throughout your home each time you use your air conditioning or central heating. Properly cleaning the vents and filters helps prevent this from happening. You should change your filters every six months on your own. 
SERVPRO technicians can teach you how to reduce the moisture inside of your home with dehumidifiers, fans, and air conditioners, especially during hot weather months. However, using fans after discovering that mold apparently exists will cause you to spread the spores to other unaffected areas of your home. Keeping moist areas dry, a constant humidity below 40% and reducing the possibility of condensation growing on cold surfaces in your home, all assist with maintaining a clean environment.
