We prioritize a fast response to emergencies and have AMRT-Certified technicians on stand-by to help 24/7. 

Breaking Through Myths of Mold 

Mold damage in Middletown homes can be a destructive and hazardous development, especially when considering the spread of misinformation on the internet. Without being armed with the correct information and knowledge, homeowners can misjudge the importance of swift action when regulating the conditions of the house and remediating active mold colonies. 

  • Natural Dissipation

It is commonly believed that mold will dissipate without direct action from remediation professionals. This is an unlikely resolution without resolving the moisture issues and clearing out active colonies. 

  • DIY Cleaning

While there are merits to DIY cleanup for minor incidents in your home, mold comes in thousands of varieties that require various methods and approaches to remove thoroughly. Surface cleaning with chlorine-based products is not always sufficient. 

Is Professional Remediation Necessary? 

Professional remediation like our SERVPRO team can provide benefits for multiple reasons. The primary advantage is the knowledge of our roster to rapidly manage changing conditions in a residence to address active mold damage and prevent recurrences. We provide:

What Are the Ideal Methods for Mold Damage Removal?

No one set remediation solution for eliminating and eradicating mold and microbial threats on a property. Several factors contribute to what becomes the ideal mold removal tactic, which might include:

  • Antimicrobial Products

The initial approach attempted when mold damage impacts homes and businesses is to apply antimicrobial and biocide products to the materials. In many cases, this can eliminate organisms on the outermost portion of drywall, wood, and other organic matter. 

  • Aggressive Surface Action

Several options exist for more aggressive and abrasive methods of removing mold that has begun to penetrate beyond the main surface layer of hosting material. Sanding and scrubbing can effectively reach just beyond this surface layer, though more abrasive methods are sometimes necessary with media blasting equipment. 

  • Controlled Demolition

When the other strategies are not effective means of removing active mold colonies from your residence, a final resort and effective approach is controlled demolition. This process removes exposed materials entirely, negating lengtheir remediation solutions altogether.
