Is Mold Growing Behind the Walls in Your New Castle Home?

Mold Remediation Is Mold Growing Behind the Walls in Your New Castle Home? Leaks in pipes, hidden behind walls, can cause mold. A lot of damage has already occurred when the mold is visible inside the home.

Different Methods for Combating Mold Damage from Different Areas in New Castle Area Properties

Daily activities that take place in your New Castle home runs water through the plumbing almost non-stop. Over time, plumbing can become loose at joints and allow water to leak in between walls. Because these pipes reside in hidden areas, your home can develop problems inside these spaces.
 
SERVPRO carries equipment designed to not only remediate mold damage in New Castle homes, but to also find hidden areas containing undetected mold. Spaces inside walls, within the bases of cabinets, and under floor coverings should come as no surprise after discovering mold growing on the outside of walls or any other easily visible location. SERVPRO can help by getting the destructiveness under control and ensuring a decrease in the likelihood of similar issues in the future.
 
Within your home, the mold damage encountered requires different approaches to remediation, according to its location and the materials infested by microbes. In open areas, such as a bathroom, a section of your kitchen, living room, or a den, we utilize an enclosed space. In places designed for storage, like attics and crawlspaces, we often use a blasting technique that strips mold and spores away from surfaces. In most areas, we prevent regrowth of microbes with the application of a powerful and long-lasting antimicrobial agent.
 
Industry standards highly recommend the replacement of any ceilings or walls that contain mold and mildew with new materials. Removing these requires that we cut away the affected sections and double bag them. During this process, spores entering the air increase in number because our work disturbs the mold and triggers this reaction. Our negative air pressure structure pulls clean air in from other parts of your home, and an air scrubber pushes air out your home. A HEPA filter on the air scrubber traps the majority of microbes and spores, and any odors find their way outdoors.
 
In areas that your family rarely occupies, SERVPRO specialists often use blasting to strip mold from surfaces. Not only does this method remove surface mold effectively, but it also freezes mold and any spores, which kills the majority of microbes involved. We still use vacuums with HEPA filtration systems to remove them from the area,  leaving the space “Like it never even happened.”
 
SERVPRO of Garfield & Pitkin Counties is ready 24/7/365 to perform mold damage remediation in homes within Aspen, Snowmass, and Rifle, and follow up with effective prevention techniques. As always, we work with you to determine the cause behind the infestation and provide expert guidance on how to further decrease the risk of re-infestation.
