Enjoy Your Lakewood North Shore Water View without Mold Worries Thanks to SERVPRO
Reliable Mold Damage Remediation Up The North Shore in Lakewood
When Lakewood is your home, Lake Superior is often viewed in the distance, and the big water is never more than a mile or so away. Many small creeks and rivers run through the area, and the lake effect rains and snows take a toll on the roofs and gutter systems on homes, hobby farms, and businesses. Whether you live in a 100-year-old home tucked away in a rural corner or newer construction with a priceless view, mold growth can be a problem. We can help.
The North Shore area of Lake Superior features pockets of persistent dampness, and Lakewood Township homes are at risk of mold damage. Close to nature, often surrounded by forests, bogs, and marshes, mold spores are everywhere in the great outdoors seen through the windows of these north woods homes. Mosses grow freely on roofs, clogging gutters along with pine needles, and leaves, sending water trickling inside houses along the eave line or through the siding. If the moisture is not controlled, mold spores activate and multiply into complex colonies. Our Applied Microbial Remedial Technicians assess your mold damage scenario and devise a plan to manage it.
SERVPRO follows the protocol developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to complete abatement of mold infestations. We do not overstate the health dangers of mold, preferring our customers consult with medical practitioners if they feel ill or impaired when mold proliferates in their home. At the same time, we want to follow established procedures that keep residents safe and prevents moldy debris from spreading throughout a building as we remediate it.
We inspect your property, testing if indicated, finding the moldy areas, and design a containment system for the space. Heavy duty plastic sheeting provides a physical barrier, and the addition of a negative pressure air scrubbing machine and ductwork seals the places we find and remove mold away from the airflow moving through the rest of the house. SERVPRO uses mechanical means to scrape and brush mold off surfaces. Even porous materials infested with hyphae, the rootlike growth of the mold, recover from a mold infiltration when we use safe but efficient abrasives like soda blasting to remove the mold.
Manage the moisture, and you minimize the damage mold does to your home. Contact SERVPRO of The Twin Ports at (218) 727-2575 to set up a microbial damage assessment.
