We have different ways to test for Mold, whether it is in your home or business.

Our first test is a visual inspection. As qualified professionals, we may be able to see the mold presence. We have tools to help reveal any hidden moisture and find the source. 

Another testing option is swab test, we swab the affected area and send it to a lab for a analysis.

Have you ever thought about what happens after a crime scene is cleared? The cleaning and restoration process begins.

On a crime scene, it is common to have blood and other contaminants that can cause serious health risks if it is not properly addressed. Some of the hazards are blood borne pathogens and harmful chemicals.

For bloodborne pathogens, we utilize hydroperoxide to identify where the bloodborne pathogens are. As you may know, hydrogen peroxide will have a fizz reaction to blood. Once the blood is identity, we will use disinfectant on the hard non-porous surfaces, such as glass, plastics, metals, and varnished wood. For surfaces affected with bloodborne pathogens, we will remove the materials. Some examples of porous materials are drywall and carpet.

Another form of biohazard is sewage backups can be as nasty as it sounds and be extremely dangerous if not properly cleaned up. In the sewage backups, they contain viruses, bacteria and other microbes.

There are different types of containment water:
First, there is category 1, also known as clean water. Clean water can become contaminated if it is left untreated. Next, there is category 2, the Gray Water stage, this water can be from washing machine overflow; toilet overflow with some urine, but no feces; or dishwasher overflow. The last type is Category 3, which is called black water and can include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.

At SERVPRO of Carbon County, we handle sewage jobs often and are experts on cleaning it up. We tackle sewage jobs wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) to remove the contaminants followed by disinfectant.

From residential to commercial services, SERVPRO of Carbon County can help you!
