Rely on the Professionals at SERVPRO to Remediate Mold Damage

Having mold in the crawl space under your Chicago area home usually means you are dealing with two problems at once: the mold itself, and the source – which means that you have a moisture issue to deal with as well. Both problems need to be taken care of as soon as possible to avoid causing considerable damage to your home.

Like many homeowners throughout Chicago, you probably avoid checking for mold damage or spending much time in your crawl space at all. We all do it, so you should not feel ashamed, even as someone in the remediation industry, it can be hard to keep a close eye out for mold in our own homes.

If you find mold on your property, the first thing you should do is determine whether or not to call in a professional. Areas over 10 square feet or larger are considered a significant outbreak and are likely too much for you to handle alone. SERVPRO has trained professionals, the right equipment, and protective clothing. So, consider avoiding taking chances with spreading the problem further or personal exposure and call for help to eliminate the problem.

Most homes have a crawl space or basement underneath, basements themselves often lead to mold problems all of their own, but have more space to work with while crawl spaces are smaller and harder to manage without the proper experience, tools, and resources. However, SERVPRO’s IICRC certified technicians can help you locate any problems that already exist and help you decide which steps can help you protect your property from mold issues in the future. 

SERVPRO can check every inch of your crawl space for mold while using containment and control methods to help avoid spreading mold spores to additional areas of your home. We have foggers, negative air-flow machines, air-movers, and use a controlled environment to cordon-off the affected areas; cleaning or disposing of contaminated materials according to local, state, and federal guidelines.
