Pottsville Homeowners Are Frustrated By The Need For Mold Remediation – But Help Is At Hand

People living in Pottsville know that attics and basements are parts of the home that sometimes get neglected. When it comes to home maintenance, most people focus on apparent issues such as broken gutters, loose tiles, or looking after appliances. The attic is often out of sight and out of mind.

However, a Pottsville attic might need mold remediation as much as any other part of the home. Attics are often neglected, and an ideal place for spores to settle. If there is moisture in the attic and a food source such as wood, mold can grow.

What is the most effective method for cleaning mold in the attic?

Customers often ask us the best method for cleaning the mold. SERVPRO’s most crucial piece of advice is do not try to clean it yourself. Home cleaning methods are not as effective or as safe as professional methods.

SERPVRO technicians use a range of cleaning methods, including:

    •    Scrubbing
    •    HEPA vacuuming
    •    Dry ice or soda blasting
    •    Not many people have heard of dry ice blasting, but it is ideal for cleaning away mold in the attic. Our equipment blasts wood with CO2 pellets at supersonic speeds to attack the fungus. Dry ice blasting scrubs away mold but does not damage the wood.

When you choose us, you can rest assured that we will use the latest techniques and equipment to cleanse your attic space.

Can SERVPRO help prevent mold spreading further?

Yes. Our technicians understand that it is easy for microscopic mold spores to spread. That is why we:

    •    Set up containment using plastic sheeting and tape to prevent spores escaping your attic
    •    Use correct protective equipment and dispose of it carefully
    •    Use air scrubbers or negative air machines to suck spores from the air

Because mold thrives in a damp environment, we carefully dry your attic and monitor moisture levels throughout remediation. We also deodorize the space afterward to get rid of that musty smell.

Cleaning is one part of mold remediation. Carefully monitored drying, containment, and deodorization are a must – which is why you can rely on us.
