Why SERVPRO Prevents Mold Damage of Homes in the Upper West Side
It’s Easier to Prevent Mold Damage than Remediate
SERVPRO’s technicians continually learn about the latest developments in the restoration industry. Some of this additional training includes how to help customers who own Upper West Side properties affected by mold damage. Once mold infestation occurs within a residence, we know that using specific methods can reduce the likelihood of future problems involving microbes.
We use several techniques to remediate mold damage in Upper West Side homes. Some of these methods also help prevent future overgrowth. Wherever we get two benefits from performing one task, our customers save money.
Here are some ways that SERVPRO works to make mold damage less likely to happen again:
- Application of an antimicrobial on surfaces,
- Installation of a dehumidifier, and
- Cleaning the ventilation system.
Antimicrobials like Concrobium kill any microbes currently on the surface treated. Then, after it has dried, it protects the material by making the area inhospitable to any newly-arriving microbes. Unable to find the sustenance they need, they either die or enter a dormant state. Because of its long-lasting effect, the antimicrobial keeps dormant microbes from becoming active.
Maintaining proper humidity levels in your home means microbes remain within reasonable population limits, and the environment stays comfortable for you and your family. Optimal humidity helps protect the home’s structure and everything you own inside. We can install a dehumidifier that is a cost-effective method of preventing mold damage to your home and its contents.
Your HVAC system can harbor mold particles and spores. Each time the system starts, the current’s force pushes any particles of mold or mildew or their spores around inside the ducts. Once loosened from the interior of the ducts, substantial amounts of microbes can enter your living space. We can clean the ductwork and the vents, eliminating mold before it can cause a problem.
