Does the Dark Patch on a Gaithersburg Ceiling Need Mold Remediation?
SERVPRO Technicians Can Handle Any Size Mold Damage Cleanup in Gaithersburg Properties
One of the things mold colonies count on to stay within Gaithersburg properties is not getting found. The mold damage continues behind the scenes as long as there is moisture, steady warm temperatures, and something organic to consume.
When SERVPRO handles mold remediation in Gaithersburg properties, two distinct actions need to happen. First, the scale of the mold infestation needs to be investigated, and second, the cause for the elevated moisture levels also needs to be diagnosed. The technicians can rapidly pinpoint the reason for the colonies and discuss the necessary steps to end the infestation with the property owner.
The colonies can spread quickly, and the first sign may happen when a dark stain appears on a wall or ceiling. It is not uncommon for a homeowner to attempt to clean mold using household cleaners, but this action only removes the appearance of the mold and not the issue. Also, scrubbing with bleach or bleach-based cleaners can permanently damage walls and ceilings.
SERVPRO technicians use various pieces of equipment to target the areas with mold growth, such as:
- Infrared cameras to detect collections of moisture behind walls or ceilings
- Probes to locate elevated moisture under a carpet
- Containment to halt the spread of airborne spores
Mold damage to a wall or ceiling does not have to result in the entire portion getting removed. SERVPRO technicians determine the actual scale of the spread and only remove the building materials that received the effects of the mold infestation. This saves homeowners the cost of replacing walls and ceilings. The remaining structural elements will get treated with proactive applications such as antimicrobial sealants to inhibit any return of the issue in the future.
