SERVPRO Mold Removal Preserves Homes and Property

While a mold infestation may have health effects for some people, the real threat is to the structural integrity and appearance. If unnoticed or untreated, colonies of mold spores burrow into wood, sheetrock, and other materials seeking food and moisture, costing thousands in repair.

Mold removal in Gilroy starts with our specialists searching for the extent of the mold colony and moisture sources that keep it active. Once determined, other team members dry or remove them with sponges or water extractors, depending on the amount present. Then, they remove as much mold from the affected surfaces as possible. Any remaining spores quickly return to an inert state without a source of water. 

If the mold penetrated below the surface of a piece of wall framing, specialists use powered sanders to remove several layers to get to the spores. If the colony grew over a much larger area like an attic, specialists use soda blasters to remove the mold without harming the support structure. Then we can apply an antimicrobial agent to the treatment areas.

If you need mold removal in your home, call SERVPRO of Morgan Hill / Gilroy at (408) 500-0657 today.
