Mold can affect your health, and can also cause significant damage to your property. Fortunately, SERVPRO of North Central Austin has the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. Although every mold damage scenario is different, requiring a unique solution, the general mold remediation process stays the same. The following steps illustrate a "typical" mold removal process:
Call SERVPRO of North Central Austin
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. A representative will ask a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed.
Inspection & Damage Assessment
Your property will be carefully inspected for signs of mold using technology designed to detect mold and hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose and water, which can be hidden from plain view.
Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold, and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the clean up process.
