Our Mold Removal Techs Are Experienced & Trained

Individuals who are untrained in mold removal can leave homeowners in Hicksville with active mold colonies or unprotected against future infestations. SERVPRO® invests in the extensive training and in-depth education of our technicians. We instruct them to ensure they become knowledgeable of how microbes destroy different materials and can remediate microbial overgrowth effectively.

While hiring the lowest-priced option might seem like the best way to save money for mold removal services in Hicksville, it's not a sound investment. Trained specialists know the nuances involved when handling a residence's microbial infestation.

Our remediation specialists understand these and other crucial points: 

  • Cleaning up moldy materials, 
  • Correcting excess humidity, and 
  • Applying protective antimicrobials that prevent future infestations. 

The mold infesting your home can exhibit different characteristics. Often, a patch of mold is powdery. Disturbing mold (cleaning, moving the item it is on, or bumping it) can cause significant portions of it or its spores to become dislodged. These particles can land on the floor or become airborne, eventually causing new infestations. We prevent all this by building and using special containment apparatus and placing materials to be removed inside doubled bags. We also use machinery equipped with HEPA filters, including vacuums and air scrubbing units.

Elevated moisture always has a cause, and our technicians can quickly locate its reason. It might be a dripping pipe joint, an appliance that has developed a leak, or an area in your residence's envelope that allows rain and other precipitation to seep inside. Ensuring that future moisture levels won't become beneficial for microbes makes their re-infestation less likely.

Applying a protective antimicrobial film to surfaces prone to succumbing to microbes prevents future issues. When we have eliminated excess mold and corrected the humidity in a home, having an environment that is less welcoming to mold can keep any new microbes from colonizing as easily.
