Remediating Mold Damaged Insulation in a Patchogue Attic

9/1/2022 (Permalink)

Mold on walls or attic insulation can be remedied in your Patchogue home--just call SERVPRO

Why SERVPRO Is the Leader in Patchogue Mold Damage Restoration

Mold requires a moist environment to thrive, some organic material to feed on, and adequate temperatures for growth. Whether you have fiberglass insulation or use organic materials such as cellulose or cotton, it is crucial to minimize health effects through professional mold remediation.

If the attic of your Patchogue home has suffered mold damage, certified SERVPRO technicians are available within hours of your call to remove mold from your home. Remediation is key to maximizing safety for homeowners, and SERVPRO technicians receive extensive education in industry-standard mold cleanup tactics and equipment to ensure that these needs are met.

SERVPRO's Comprehensive Training Programs

SERVPRO offers many comprehensive training programs for technicians, franchise staff, and owners. This education is based on Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) standards that ensure best practices in various disaster mitigation scenarios, including mold remediation and carpet and upholstery cleaning. For unfinished or remodeled attics, technicians receive extensive education to safely restore your home while saving you time, money, and stress.

How SERVPRO Can Help

Remediation measures can encourage cross-contamination of mold particles and their spores. To prevent affecting clean rooms, we can include plastic sheeting to seal off doorways and HVAC systems and create dedicated clean rooms where technicians can clean off their gear during the remediation process. These standards not only maximize safety during the cleaning process but also prevent mold from spreading throughout the home during remediation. 

Both wet and dry-cleaning methods are used to dislodge mold and remove spores. HEPA-filter air scrubbers can be used to cleanse the air of microbes as small as 0.3 microns in size, a fraction of the average thickness of human hair. Mold-affected porous items, such as carpet and organic insulation made of cotton or cellulose, can be removed with the informed consent of homeowners and insurance adjusters to maximize safety. Depending on the degree of damage, we can attempt to salve these materials. Non-porous items are thoroughly cleaned to restore them to a preloss condition.

SERVPRO of Patchogue strives to leave your home looking "Like it never even happened." Call (631) 924-1801 today for remediation from trained technicians.
