Addressing Sevierville Mold Damage as Fast as Possible

SERVPRO Removes Mold Damage Found in Area Homes

Mold remediation and recovery should be something that occurs fast, as many do not appreciate its destructive capabilities until organisms have spread throughout a large area of their home. Sevierville residences might only be for a smaller population of 17,000, but the amenities and accommodations of the municipality leave many more properties at risk of hazardous colonization. Our SERVPRO team is trained to overcome:

  • Colonization
  • Structural deterioration
  • Harsh odors
  • Moisture damage

It is vital to provide a fast and reliable response after Sevierville mold damage incidents. In many cases, something as direct as establishing containment barriers can do a lot to protect a household from greater mold exposure. Because humidity, water, and storm damages can all contribute to compromised structures in Sevier County, our SERVPRO team stays prepared to mobilize and help when colonies first get discovered.

Is Mold Threatening Your Home?

Many property owners do not realize that mold is hazardous and therefore are not alarmed when it gets discovered in their residence. Even with hundreds of varieties of residential mold our remediators might encounter, there are ways that these colonies leave a detrimental mark on a structure:

  • Moisture – Where there is mold damage, there is moisture. Complete remediation seeks to address the water damage allowing the needed environmental conditions for mold to thrive. 
  • Structural Damage – Organisms use organic matter like drywall, carpeting, wood, and other natural building materials as a food source. The longer that surfaces host mold colonies, the more they become ruined by its presence. 
  • Musty Malodors – Malodors can be a severe obstacle to comfortable living for house occupants. Volatile organic compounds are emitted from active colonies, generating a strong, musty smell that we remove with professional deodorization tactics.

Removing Mold Colonies 

Removing mold damage from a home or business must focus on the active colonies and organisms spreading in the structure. Microbial growth can penetrate the surface of porous elements like drywall and flooring, so our team utilizes a range of remediation strategies for damage in different stages. Our cleaning process begins with surface treatments involving chlorine-based sporicidal products and antimicrobials in our inventory. We are ready when more aggressive measures are needed, including media blasting, sanding, sponge pressure cleaning, and controlled demolition.

The Need for Repairs and Reconstruction

Controlled demolition is a large part of the remediation process, both in the removal of active colonies and in identifying and ultimately resolving the cause of the colonization. Our general contractor license can help us provide build-back services like plumbing repairs, controlled demolition, drywall replacement, and flooring reinstallation. This service includes our larger commercial properties and Sevierville attractions.

Will Mold Return to Your Home?

It is one of the priorities of our experienced team to assess the likelihood that mold damage will return. Understanding the contributing factors that facilitated colonies can help focus repairs and reconstruction that follows remediation. Our SERVPRO team identifies and completes structural improvements to stop future moisture infiltration in the same pathways.

When Sevierville mold damage threatens a structure, our professionals are ready to help set things right. We prioritize the neutralization of active colonies and their effects rather than a blanket mold removal process others promise but cannot deliver. Use our experienced SERVPRO of Sevier, Jefferson & Cocke Counties professionals for your remediation project by calling (865) 429-8885.
