Stopping Mold Damage in Laconia

3/21/2019 (Permalink)

Mold spreads quickly. If you notice spots of mold or the smell of mold, call the technicians at SERVPRO to investigate the damage and remediate.

Our Trained SERVPRO Technicians Use the Applicable Chemicals to Combat a Mold Infestation in Your Home

Mold is the quiet, unnoticed disaster. Few homeowners or residents pay it enough mind, but large mold colonies and infestations cost people millions every year in cleaning and restoration costs. 
 
Stopping mold damage in a Laconia home requires antimicrobial and other chemical agents to either kill the spores or force them back into an inert state. Each SERVPRO has access to a national network of cleaners approved for use by the EPA and the state of New Hampshire. 
 
Commercial Disinfectants destroy 98 percent of the organisms on affected surfaces in Laconia homes. Among the types of disinfectants our technicians use are alcohols, chlorines, formaldehyde, and phenols. 
 
Fungistats and Mildewstats reduce the rate of growth of fungi on organic materials such as leather, paper, and textiles (cotton and wool). One of the advantages of using them is that they do not damage or stain surfaces. 
 
Sanitizers are very efficient in reducing mold microbial levels to a range determined as safe by health agencies. They are particularly useful in bathrooms and kitchens but have to be regularly used, or mold may return under the right conditions. 
 
Sporicides are excellent for controlling bacterial and fungal spores. We use them strictly according to the manufacturer directions as they can be health hazards in large concentrations. 
 
Sterilants are the strongest chemical we use. They destroy all microorganisms they have contact with, so our technicians are even more careful with them than with the sporicides. A common sterilant in many households is chlorine bleach. The sterilants we use are stronger than household chlorine, which makes them excellent on metal surfaces like sinks and faucets since the chemical does not pit the surface but kills virtually everything on it. 
 
Ridding your home of mold damage is just as important as restoring it after a fire or flood. SERVPRO of The Lakes Region knows from experience that if left untreated for too long, mold can cause enough damage that it may be more cost-efficient to pull down a house in Belmont or Tilton and rebuild. If you need services or only suspect there may be a problem, call us today at (603) 527-2518 to schedule an initial visit. We are here to help.
