Get Professional Mold Remediation in Chicago from SERVPRO
Local Chicago Residents Look to SERVPRO for Mold Damage Restoration
A common question about mold damage is the best type of removal method should get used. The two most frequently mentioned are dry ice blasting and sand or soda blasting; in truth, these have their place in the restoration process but, in some cases, are not needed at all.
When approaching mold remediation in Chicago properties, SERVPRO technicians take great care with the dried colonies' removal methods. This attention to detail prevents the spread of airborne spores. The dry ice used in dry blasting can be costly, and it only removes residues on the surface and does nothing about addressing mold that may be resident within porous materials. The advantage is that no demolition is required for restoration.
SERVPRO technicians perform deep cleaning when working on mold mitigation within a property. After setting up containment, they remove building materials and items beyond restoration with approval and then work on drying the existing mold to prep it for removal. Scoping for mold within a structure may include the following actions:
- Use of moisture detection devices to find areas of coolness indicating water
- Looking for signs of water damage
- Opening a wall with a 2x4-inch hole in the wall to confirm the presence of mold visually
- Borescope (snake-like camera) ti peer inside wall voids
