Mold Inspection And Mold Restoration Process In Driggs

Mold Inspection

Mold requires a higher than normal level of moisture and a food source to expand and grow. When that does happen, the process to clean it out is not simple. It's not enough to just spray bleach on visible mold and then paint over it.

If you need us to perform a mold inspection in your Driggs home, SERVPRO will send in its inspectors for a complete check regardless of the amount of mold or how far it may have spread. It is part of the plan we develop based on five principles to contain, treat and document the mold restoration process.

One - Provide for the health and safety of you and our employees. Our safety practices ensure that occupants are secure in the uncontaminated areas of a home and that our staff's health is protected in the contaminated work site.

Two - Document the conditions and processes used. Our technicians record the conditions throughout your home. This includes not just the mold infestation, but the amount of moisture present as well.

Three - Control the mold contamination at the source. Mold has to be kept from spreading to unaffected areas while cleaning and restoration are in progress. As an example, we place heavy plastic sheeting to seal off entrances and other openings to the affected area.

Four - Remove the contamination. This is accomplished using two methods: cleaning and removal. Mold can be removed using cleaners and special vacuums designed for the purpose. If the mold has begun damaging building materials such as drywall, it will have to be removed from the affected area and disposed of properly.
Five - Reduce moisture levels. This is how to prevent mold from returning. If the moisture isn't dealt with, a single mold spore can start the whole problem all over again. Our technicians use dehumidifiers and exhaust fans to reduce moisture levels to a point appropriate for your home.

If you have mold or simply suspect there may be contamination in your home, contact us at (208) 356-0263 to schedule an inspection. SERVPRO of Rexburg / Rigby is ready to help our fellow Idahoans put their homes and lives back to normal.
