Why SERVPRO Mold Damage Remediation is the Tucson Go-To

When coping with a mold outbreak in Tucson, you need a remediation firm that combines robust containment and removal techniques with practical tips to inhibit the second round of damage. Competence and confidence are what you seek, and you find this pair when you hire our team for this project. 

Despite their desert location, mold in Tucson can thrive since all mold spores need is a bit of moisture and an organic surface to thrive. SERVPRO is a good fit as a mold abatement partner because we use IICRC training supporting our remediation techniques and our professional approach. We do not engage in the panic and hype some firms bring to mold damage challenges. 

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed a mold remediation protocol SERVPRO follows. Once we locate the mold colonies, we use physical barriers and often a negative pressure air scrubber configuration to contain the mold and the debris created during removal. Access to the technology that creates the negative pressure containment is one of the reasons why SERVPRO is the logical choice when selecting a remediation team. 

Our technicians wear personal protective equipment (PPE) while removing the mold growth for personal safety and avoiding tracking moldy debris through your home during the project. We use mechanical means to dislodge the mold growth, including brushes and scrapers. These work well on solid, non-porous surfaces. However, you appreciate why SERVPRO is a mold remediation leader when strategies like soda blasting remove the mold hyphae even from porous structures. 

Final steps in SERVPRO’s mold remediation include vacuuming the treated area with HEPA filtered equipment to ensure no particles remain to seed a new colony. As further insurance, we use EPA registered antimicrobial products to inhibit the germination of the opportunist mold spores prevalent in the air and on surfaces. 

The most effective way to avoid future mold growth is to find and eliminate the sources of moisture that supported the initial infestation. SERVPRO shares this last tip as evidence of our professionalism. We enjoy helping our customers but feel the most ethical way to manage mold projects is to do all in our experience and power to make our mold remediation a rarely sought specialty. 

Training and a commitment to integrity are why SERVPRO of Northeast Tucson is a leading mold remediation specialist in our community. Call (520) 760-9352 for a reliable and proactive approach to your mold problem.
