SERVPRO of Muskegon, Here to Help your mold problems.

When your Muskegon home or business experiences water intrusion, like a roof leak or a leaking water line, mold can quickly become a problem.  Mold can potentially cause significant damage to your property and can affect your health.  Fortunately, SERVPRO of Muskegon has the industry training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem.  Every mold damage scenario is different but the following steps illustrate a "typical" mold removal process.

  1. The mold cleanup and remediation process begins when you call SERVPRO of Muskegon.  We will ask a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed for the job.
  2. At your property we will carefully inspect for signs of mold using technology designed to detect hidden water sources and will provide an estimate for the work that will be performed.
  3. Starting the job, our certified technicians will place containments to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.
  4. Our technicians use powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress.
  5. The amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears affects the mold remediation process.  Antifungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new colonies from forming.  Removing and disposing of mold infested porous materials, such as drywall and flooring, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
  6. SERVPRO of Muskegon can also clean furniture, curtains, and other restorable items affected by mold using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your items.
  7. Restoration may entail minor or major repairs depending on the level of mold damage.
