Discover mold while unpacking holiday decorations? Call SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South

10/24/2018 (Permalink)

If mold is discovered, call SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South for proper handling.

During the fall, as decorations are unpacked from a year ago, mold is often found when you uncover those old boxes. In moist, dark basements and drafty corners of attics, these are breeding grounds for mold if a source of moisture is nearby. If you find mold, don’t try to handle the removal yourself, SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South can help mitigate the situation.

When you find mold, here’s what to do

Mold is something that you don’t want to deal with yourself.  Following IICRC standards and incorporating industry defined actions, SERVPRO follows all of these protocols when handling mold.  Our staff of trained professionals will do the following:

  • Find the source of the mold and eliminate future development. Is there a drip or a source of water entering your basement or attic? If so, that needs to be dealt with.
  • A trained SERVPRO technician will evaluate the mold and provide a recommendation on the next steps.
  • We will provide an air scrubber and contain the space to prevent spores from becoming air-born and contaminate the remainder of the property while mitigation takes place.
  • SERVPRO of Plainfield / Naperville South can help with your mold problem and can arrange for the proper disposal of all mold, cleaning and decontamination.
