Mold is the result of excess moisture or water leaks in your home

Mold is a stealthy and often hidden problem that may cause property damage and health effects in your Chicago home, in addition to being unsightly. It is a naturally occurring microorganism that builds up in damp areas over time. The best way to protect your home from the effects of mold and mildew is to consult a professional mold remediation company.

With many years of experience, SERVPRO has the tools and expertise to fight any mold damage in Chicago homes. We have IICRC-approved technicians who can diagnose the damage and offer advanced cleanup services to get rid of the problem for the long term. Our professional deodorization techniques neutralize mold odors for a cleaner and more habitable environment.

When dealing with mold damage, you should understand that mold is just a symptom of the problem. The actual problem is water intrusion from any of a wide range of sources. It can be in the form of water vapor (such as excessive humidity in the attic or a poorly ventilated crawl space or bathroom) or liquid water (like a pipe or roof leakage). Removing the mold without fixing the cause is just a waste of time and money, and the fungi are bound to grow back.

At particularly high risk for mold growth are carpets that have been wet for a prolonged period, carpet in damp or moist areas, and carpeting located in basements. Visible mold growth on carpets is rare and occurs in extremely severe cases. If it can be identified by visual inspection, it is often irredeemable. Where there are small areas of mold growth on the carpet, SERVPRO technicians can apply antimicrobial products in addition to fast drying for quick remediation.

Wood is also highly prone to mold damage because it contains cellulose - a common food for the fungi. In fact, most building materials today are made of cellulose, including drywall and house insulation. When these materials get wet, they tend to promote mold growth. To counter the damage, we remove contaminated materials and then apply EPA-registered disinfectants and fast drying.

If mold has taken over your home, SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City can offer swift and efficient mold damage remediation services. We aim to restore your property with professionalism, compassion, and respect. Call us anytime at (773) 337-3900.
