When is Demolition Necessary for Mold Damage in Your Edgewood Home?

Remediating mold at its first sign can prevent structure loss.

Mold Demolition in Edgewood is Strictly for Professionals, Here's Why

In commercial properties or large private residences, mold growth can spread rapidly and become a significant issue. In these circumstances it may be necessary to carry out a controlled demolition, removing structure to allow access to the source of damage. Properties built before 1978 can contain lead-based paints in their structure which turn to dust during demolition and can be extremely dangerous. Health risks can also be posed by certain types of mold. These are jobs for a professional.

It is generally quite rare for us to carry out mold demolition in Edgewood homes and commercial properties. This procedure is only necessary in cases where the damage is widespread and poses a health risk. Usually, SERVPRO sends tests to a laboratory to assess the level of mold growth before beginning a procedure like this due to the high level of the cost it can involve.

Demolishing structures are necessary when mold has become a significant problem and has spread throughout wall cavities, below subfloor or into crawlspaces. SERVPRO has many practical solutions for mold remediation, but almost all of them require access to the affected area. Removing parts of structure allows us to get your property back to preloss conditions and tackle mold using rapid-air movers, solvent-based wet cleaning and even soda, or ice blasting.

Here at SERVPRO, we understand the dangers of this procedure. On arranging a call-out, we send an IICRC certificate holder to assess and remediate mold damage. We can also send an in-house remodeler or use a third party to help put your home back together. Part of our remit is to "always do what is right by the customer" which means we only undertake expensive proceedings like demolition when absolutely necessary.

Making it "Like it never even happened." is not just a slogan for us. We promise to use all expertise and equipment at our disposal to restore your home to its preloss conditions. Where possible, we restore items rather than replace them. As a homeowner or property manager, you need a service you can trust, we have a proven track record in this area that stands us in good stead with our community.

When mold gets out of hand, contact SERVPRO of Conway / Holden Heights at (407) 985-3200 for second-to-none service.
