Disaster Restoration Services FAQ
Why is it important to get rid of mold?
Many people aren’t aware that mold can cause serious structural damage to homes and businesses, which, if left undetected, can cause a property to lose value and/or require significant repairs. Mold exposure can also have health consequences in humans, especially in those with heart or lung problems, the elderly, or children. Usually, exposure to mold causes nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing, skin irritation, or even more severe reactions. Therefore, removing mold from your home is taking action against a harmful factor that in the long run can cause major problems.
What is Involved With Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation involves identifying, removing, sanitizing and restoring a space that is infested with potentially harmful mold. Our Downers Grove mold remediation specialists arrive in protective gear arriving at the affected location and remove porous material with mold that can’t be cleaned. The moldy material is removed in sealed bags and safely disposed of. If surfaces can be thoroughly cleaned, they will be cleaned and treated to prevent future mold growth.
The entire affected space is then treated with antimicrobial mold remediation products designed to sanitize the area and kill any remaining mold or bacteria. The final part of the mold remediation process is treating the entire affected area with a coating of paint or sealant that contains and encapsulates any remaining mold spores so that the growth cannot return or spread to other surfaces. When dealing with areas of mold larger than 10 square feet, especially if it’s black mold, it’s best to leave its removal to trained experts like the technicians at ServiceMaster DSI in Downers Grove IL.
How do you get rid of smoke damage from a fire?
Fire is one of the worst incidents a home can suffer: apart from destroying structural materials and household goods quickly and irreversibly, it also causes a series of additional risks. Persistent smoke odor is one of the most common examples of the harmful consequences of a fire, and it can remain in the home for a long time, compromising the quality of indoor air and putting people's health at risk.
Getting rid of the smell of smoke is a challenge. The first step will be to ventilate the house well, then you can do a thorough cleaning of the home, and finally, you can wash all solid surfaces with a solution of dish soap, white vinegar and warm water. Small smoke particles can stick to all surfaces, so if the odor is persistent and you can't fix it yourself, the best option is to call the professionals at ServiceMaster DSI in Downers Grove and surrounding areas, who have the equipment and training to remove even the most complicated odor. We're available 24/7 to help you get your home back to the way it used to smell and feel.
How long does a complete commercial restoration take?
The time to complete a full restoration depends on the damage, the size of the affected area and the characteristics of the space, among other factors.
