Is There a Problem Other Than Making My Hockessin Home Look Bad?

Active mold spores can quickly spread in attics and behind walls. Given enough time and water, mold colonies can grow through an entire home.

So why SERVPRO for mold removal in Hockessin? Rapid remediation is the best method to stop the threat and reduce damage. Our teams can quickly remove visible mold with chemical cleaners, and dry sponges or cloths.

What If the Mold Penetrated Wall or Roof Supports?

When the mold has time to dig into wall framing or other support assemblies, our specialists have several options to remove it without compromising a home’s structural integrity, it at all possible.

  • Hand-Sanding – Team members use sandpaper to attack small spots of mold that just penetrated the surface.
  • Power-Sanding – Specialists use power sanders to remove multiple layers of wood so they can vacuum the spores and wood dust into sealed bags for disposal.
  • Soda-Blasting – SERVPRO technicians use this device when hyphae deeply penetrated support structures. The soda does little damage and allows us to preserve even the most affected wood to reduce costs. 
  • Applying an antimicrobial product to the treated area

For efficient mold remediation, call SERVPRO of Hockessin / Elsmere today at (302) 992-0104.
