Some of the Biggest Problems With Mold in Glendale Result From Delayed Action
Why Industry Leading Training Makes SERVPRO the Choice for Mold Damage Remediation in Glendale
So you begin to notice a distinctive musty odor in some regions of the house. As you search for the source, you move around furniture in the offending area, and sure enough, there it is mold. The discovery of mold in the home is not uncommon and should not be a cause to panic. We have all heard horror stories of Black mold or infestations that have required thousands of dollars in remodeling work. However, the truth is that in the vast majority of cases, all you have to do is make a simple phone call.
Removing mold damage in Glendale properties does require professional help. Although, it does not often require full-scale mold testing in a laboratory. The visible signs and odors of the mold are enough to pick up the phone and ring SERVPRO. We are one of the leading services for mold restoration because we operate locally and have access to national-level resources.
Why do national resources matter? The answer is simple. Proper mold remediation requires skill and training. SERVPRO employs technicians that hold IICRC certificates in mold assessment, applied structural drying and mold remediation. These come together to form a three-pronged skillset that is essential to completing a service correctly. Not only that, but we are also available 24 hours a day on our emergency call line.
Removing the visible signs of mold is not enough by itself. To fully restore a home it is necessary to find the source, usually a damp spot or leak that is creating the conditions for mold spores to proliferate. SERVPRO technicians use their mold assessment training to locate the source and either fix a leaking pipe or use their applied structural drying training to help remove the damage. Without taking this crucial step, the mold can return again and again.
SERVPRO technicians use their mold remediation certification to ensure the damage is removed and to prevent it from spreading into other areas of the home. Agitation is an effective method, but the nature of it can lead to spores becoming airborne and settling elsewhere. We quarantine the affected area using a physical barrier, like plastic sheeting, or by applying negative air pressure.
All in all, our advanced training helps us to provide a better service to our community here in Glendale and the surrounding area. Book a service by calling SERVPRO of Eagle Rock / South Glendale at (818) 244-6005 today.
