Protect Your Wake Forest Home with Professional Mold Remediation

There is a growing belief among Wake Forest homeowners that mold growth is something that is not challenging to overcome. Solutions like bleach combined with some elbow grease can remove the presence from your home instead of costlier ventures like professional mold remediation. While it is indeed possible for a homeowner to identify the presence of mold in their home through sensory signals like a harsh musty odor or physically seeing a colony, removing this organism is not as simple as you might have thought.

While there are still many who think that mold damage in their Wake Forest homes is simple to overcome, the trouble lies mainly in the spread and depth of the colony. Often what can appear like a small cluster often has penetrated and spread much farther just below the surface of the affected material. While you can remove the top layer of the mold with scrubbing, the majority of this colony and its hazardous effects for your home and its occupants remain intact.

Moreover, many homeowners do not get prepared for the health effects that exposure to mold colonies can produce. Especially with something as involved as removing the organism, the spread of active mold spores and volatile organic compounds can affect people in sometimes severe ways. Our SERVPRO technicians get trained extensively on the use of personal protective equipment and safe removal practices to prevent the spread of these volatile compounds and to keep our staff and others in the house safe.

Professional remediation like our SERVPRO team provides does not get satisfied until the property has gotten thoroughly inspected for total mold growth removal. This process extends to our reduction or removal of moisture throughout the affected areas, and even helping to provide lasting solutions to regulate this dampness moving forward to prevent recurrences.

Mold growth in your home is something that you need to address as quickly as possible. Without the training and expertise on removal and restoration, you leave your home open to further damages. Give our SERVPRO of North Raleigh / Wake Forest rapid response team a call today at (919) 790-1222.
