Black Mold Feasting in a Bourbonnais Attic
Often mold can develop into large colonies like that shown in this Before Photo when sufficient moisture is present to activate dormant mold spores. Poor ventilation from a clothes dryer or bathroom that discharges into the attic can be the cause of this excess moisture. In this case, the flashing around a vent pipe on the roof allowed water to seep into the structure and wick into the plywood sheathing and trusses. SERVPRO can send out a team of AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians to our customer's Bourbonnais home within hours, assess the situation, and get the job done, "Like it never even happened." We can abraid the mold growths from the interior with a soda blasting technique. Our large arsenal of advanced equipment means we can remove the fungi without fueling their growth with pressured water. This also keeps the blown insulation dry, and after a light fogging with an antimicrobial agent, the insulation and infrastructure are once again safe from mold degradation. Our crack team doubles as a construction crew, so we also patched the leaking area around the vent. We make our customers smile, call us if you need help with restoration services for your home or business.
