Mold Problem in Madison?

9/1/2021 (Permalink)

I kept smelling a funny, musty odor in my home but couldn’t place it. I traced the smell to my wall and noticed the bottom of the wall was damp. When I peeled back part of the wallpaper, I saw the mold. Yikes!  

SERVPRO® of Norfolk mitigates and remediates mold damage in Madison and offers this information from our website about mold and how it spreads: 

Understanding Mold 

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, or the mold may return 
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, on clothes and pets, or air conditioning and heating systems 
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture 
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth 
  • Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent to discourage mold growth 

Call Us Today! 

When you need mold mitigation and remediation services for your Madison home or business, SERVPRO®?of Norfolk is Here to Help.® Our technicians are on-call 24-hours a day to respond to mold damage emergencies, and we typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call. Call us today at 402-370-2460. We’ll mitigate and remediate your mold damage, “Like it never even happened.”

Our Stanton customers say it all! 

At SERVPRO® of Norfolk keeping our customers happy is key to our success. In everything we do, we put the needs of our customers first. Here is a recent customer testimonial that demonstrates this: 

 
“I had ripped up the carpet and removed it from my basement and upon inspection, I noticed a couple of questionable spots along the baseboards. When I contacted SERVPRO at about 8 PM on a Saturday evening the lady connected me with my local SERVPRO business. The gentleman called me within a half-hour and stated that he was currently on my side of town at another job and would be able to swing by quickly. I let him know that I had Carpet coming the next day and I needed to know if I had to treat these questionable spots before my install. He conducted a full inspection with his special cameras to identify the moisture and looked at the questionable spots. He explained what he saw and that there was no need to treat. SERVPRO was thorough, professional, and courteous!” Jesse in Stanton, NE

Advanced Technologies and Specialized Training for Norfolk.

At SERVPRO of Norfolk, we use advanced technology, and our technicians undergo initial and continuous training to keep up-to-speed on technological advancements and industry best practices. This saves our customers time and money and allows our technicians to restore residential and commercial properties in Norfolk to preloss condition faster and more cost-effectively. 

The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) is the non-profit certifying body for the restoration industry. The IICRC sets the cleaning and restoration standards we follow. These standards incorporate the field of psychometry, allowing our technicians to become proficient in manipulating temperature and relative humidity through moisture detection and measurement equipment. This is important because excess moisture can cause further damage to a structure and encourage mold and other microbial damage.

Moisture Detection and Measurement Equipment 

  • An infrared camera may be used to identify water location for thorough water removal
