Is DIY Mold Removal Enough For Your Augusta Home?

While every Augusta homeowner does not want to take part in activities that throw away their hard-earned money, some disasters that impact your home require trained professionals with specialized equipment to restore and recover thoroughly. Mold growth might seem like something that you can handle on your own with a little bit of internet research, but in truth, much of these methods get designed to only target specific types of mold and rarely have the penetrative power to remove an active colony completely.

Many  homeowners in Augusta mistakenly believe that DIY mold removal is as effective as mold remediation. Our SERVPRO team cannot offer “mold removal” as this term is misleading to our customers. Mold spores exist naturally throughout every environment that we encounter throughout the day, making it impossible to remove the presence of mold from your property entirely. Moreover, to attempt to do this is unnecessary.

Mold remediation is a process that isolates active colonization within your property and prevents it from spreading further. Experienced SERVPRO technicians work to remove this spreading organism that has seated into organic materials and surfaces through penetrative methods like soda blasting, sanding, and antimicrobial solutions. If these methods are ineffective, we can also choose to remove the affected material and reconstruct the area.

Another way that mold remediation can differ from DIY mold removal is with disinfection and deodorization of exposed areas and materials. Colonies emit a musty odor as the organism spreads and grows. This odor can penetrate materials, fabrics, furniture, and other contents of your home. Removing this harsh scent entirely requires advanced equipment like our thermal foggers. These machines can release a dense chemical compound that breaks up odor molecules, leaving no discernible scent behind.

While you might wonder if mold remediation is worth it, consider the dangers and risks that you allow for inadequate colony removal. To make mold damage “Like it never even happened” in your home, give our SERVPRO of Augusta mold remediation specialists a call today at (706) 750-0200.
