The first step in our mold remediation process is reaching out to our SERVPRO® crew. Our team of experts is always ready to assist you. When you contact us, we will gather essential information about your situation, assess the scope of the problem, and schedule a visit to your Charlotte home.
Step 2: Inspection and Assessment
Upon arrival, our experienced technicians will perform a thorough inspection and assessment. We will identify the extent of the mold problem and any underlying issues that may be contributing to the mold growth. Understanding the full scope of the issue is essential for effective remediation.
Step 3: Containment
To prevent mold spores from spreading to uncontaminated areas of your home, we establish containment measures. This often involves the use of physical barriers, negative air pressure, and other techniques to isolate the affected area.
Step 4: Mold Removal
The next step is the physical removal of mold from surfaces. Our technicians use industry-approved techniques and equipment to safely and effectively remove mold. This process includes the use of HEPA vacuums and antimicrobial solutions to ensure thorough removal.
Step 5: Cleaning and Sanitizing
Once the visible mold is removed, we clean and sanitize the affected areas. This step is essential to prevent the mold from returning. Our cleaning methods are thorough and effective in removing any remaining mold spores.
Step 6: Odor Removal
Mold infestations often come with unpleasant odors. We use advanced techniques to eliminate these odors, ensuring your home is fresh and clean.
Step 7: Restoration
The final step is the restoration of your home. Depending on the extent of the mold damage, this may involve minor repairs like replacing drywall or major restoration work. Our goal is to bring your property back to its pre-mold condition.
