SERVPRO Offers Effective Mold Remediation for Sevierville Properties

For several reasons, trying to get rid of mold damage on your own is not wise. Specific equipment is required for mold remediation.

Hiring professionals like SERVPRO for mold removal from your Sevierville property is crucial. We have the necessary equipment and technical knowledge to carry out mold inspections, remediations, and removal safely. To prevent the airborne spores of mold from reaching the unaffected area of your home, SERVPRO mold specialists establish a containment zone with negative air pressure. 

Why Should You Wait for SERVPRO’s Mold Specialists? 

Mold found in your Sevierville home reproduces by producing microscopic airborne structures called spores. Once the spores find a conducive environment on a surface, they germinate, very much like a seed does when planted in the ground. After germination, the spores produce a network of structures called the hyphae. 

Some hyphae grow into the surface like the roots of a plant. Others spread across the surface while a few grow upward and produce hundreds of loosely attached spores on top. 

When you attempt to clean these delicate spore-bearing hyphae, even a slight disturbance can lead the spores to become airborne and spread everywhere. SERVPRO technicians use containment zones to prevent this very thing from happening. 

SERVPRO mold specialists use a vacuum equipped with HEPA filters to safely clean and remove mold from affected surfaces without cross-contaminating the unaffected areas. Material that has heavy mold damage is also disposed of safely. Typically, we apply an antifungal agent to the affected surfaces to suppress the reoccurring spores from germinating.
