The Mold Mitigation & Remediation Process
When there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business. Mold can affect your health and can also cause significant damage to your property. Fortunately SERVPRO of Missoula professionals have the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. Although every mold damage scenario is different, requiring a unique solution, the general mold remediation process stays the same. The following step illustrates a typical mold removal process.

Call SERVPRO of Missoula professionals
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call SERVPRO of Missoula professionals. A representative will ask you a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed.
Inspection & Damage Assessment
Your property will be carefully inspected for signs of mold using technology designed to detect hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose or other organic material and water which can be hidden in plain view.

Mold Containment
Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the clean up process.
Air Filtration
Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air. SERVPRO of Missoula technicians utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress.


Removing Mold & Mold Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Antifungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and flooring, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.


Cleaning Contents & Belongings
SERVPRO of Missoula professionals may be able to clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains and other restorable items affected by mold. They use a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and sanitize your belongings. They are also trained to remove odors and deodorize using fogging equipment.


Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs such as drywall, painting and installing new carpet, or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

SERVPRO of Missoula understands mold and mold growth and have the training and equipment to remediate mold in your home or business. Call us at 406-327-9500 to make it “Like it never even happened.”
