Mold Damage From Ice Dams In Your Nashua Home
Mold Damage From Ice Dams
In Nashua, it is not uncommon to hear of ice dams. Gutters can sometimes get clogged with ice during the winter season, preventing any water from the roof flowing down properly as it should. Instead, water ends up back onto the roof, where it can get underneath shingles and cause lots of structural damage and leaks. The water may end up leaking down into your walls and get trapped inside the walls, leading to mildew and mold growth.
When you notice mold growth and mold damage on the walls of your Nashua home, you know you have a problem. Since mold can cause health effects for you and your family, besides being destructive to your home, it is not something you want to let hang around. Instead, get in touch with our technicians at SERVPRO. Our crew is certified and trained to handle a mold infestation safely and adequately.
We first inspect your home carefully for signs of visible mold. There can be hidden mold as well that you are not seeing. Various technologies are used to detect the mold and any hidden water sources. We also use different containment methods to stop the mold from spreading throughout the rest of your home. Negative air chambers and physical barriers may be used to keep mold spores from spreading while we are cleaning up the affected area. Any cooling and heating systems are turned off as well, so the mold does not spread.
SERVPRO staff use special filtration equipment that allows us to trap airborne microscopic mold spores. HEPA vacuums and powerful air scrubbers stop also mold spores from spreading during remediation. The process depends on how much mold there is and what kinds of surfaces it is on. We use treatments which are antimicrobial and antifungal to get rid of colonies of mold and help stop new ones from starting. Sometimes we may need to remove and get rid of porous materials that are infested with molds, such as carpeting and drywall.
We then clean any restorable items which were affected by the old with a variety of techniques to clean and sanitize them. We are trained to remove odors as well and perform deodorization using fogging equipment. Minor repairs may need to be made such as replacing drywall and painting.
