SERVPRO Can Safely Restore Your Ririe Residence with Mold Remediation

Ririe mold remediation should always be considered as a matter left to the professionals. These fungi develop into large colonies from mold spores which are in nature all around you. Spores are in virtually every household, lying dormant, waiting for the right conditions to start a bloom. Mold removal and remediation from your Ririe home should be looked into quickly when discovered.

This mold can take over large areas if allowed to remain after it has been detected. Contrary to popular lure, mold species, there being thousands, are not often harmful to humans or animals. They can cause negative health effects, but usually in the old, the very young, and individuals with immune system disorders. Some people are sensitive to the allergens and mycotoxins which can be produced by mold colonies. 

Mold requires three factors to flourish into colonies: a food source which may be cellulose products like wood, and most other organic laced products around the home. Also, a fair amount of moisture, and shaded cool areas away from direct sunlight. This means that the only indicator you may have is a musty odor coming from a closet or the basement if not a crawlspace. One of the reasons you may be getting molds, now, after all of this time, is that you may have had a leaking faucet or pipe, somewhere in your house. That leaking pipe, appliance or water heater could be the cause for activating any mold spores you do have, and this is the time that growth gets started.  A call to a mold remediation company like SERVPRO is a wise decision to make. An infestation takes 48-72 hours to start to gain steam. It Can then grow at a good rate, especially in dark, undetected voids within your Ririe home.

The entire home should be inspected to locate, not only molds but spaces that are the perfect environment for their growth. This means those closed areas, under sinks, and behind walls and above ceilings. The professionals from SERVPRO have the equipment such as infrared cameras to distinguish heat variations inside walls which help determine the possibility of a mold infestation.

Several actions that you should not take before a professional gets there:
Do not allow elderly folks or kids into visible infestation points
Do not expose the mold to a fan as this can spread it around the house.
Do not disturb or touch the mold in any way.
Do not use bleach on it.
Do not try to dry it out yourself as the spores can become airborne and contaminate more areas of your home. If your HVAC system is on, turn it off immediately to prevent circulation through the duct work.

During a complete inspection, the mold remediation and restoration experts from SERVPRO can locate, contain and remediate the molds. The source of the moisture must be identified and fixed or else the mold growth can return. The techs will use foggers to broadcast antifungal, antimicrobial, and deodorizing products in the required sequence. Air scrubbers can also be employed to purge the air of many mold spores. HEPA filtration systems, protective clothing, and gear, along with specialized equipment and chemical products can remediate the mold infestation in your Ririe home and restore your space to a safe condition "Like it never even happened."

Since mold is not something for the faint of heart, when you do notice some, time is of the essence. It is not possible to eliminate all traces of mold infestations and spores, so call SERVPRO of Rexburg / Rigby at (208) 356-0263 for rapid response and complete care to get the most out of the service.
