What is mold? Mold is a fungus that can cause property damage and health effects. It is typically a distinct smell. 

One thing you should know about mold is, it thrives on moisture. In fact mold spores will rapidly grow into colonies when they are exposed to water. Another factor is the humidity in the air. It is important to keep your humidity levels below 45% to avoid mold growth. 

Our team is trained to handle any mold job as every mold damage is different and requires a unique solution. 

Step 1: Call us at 570-732-9191 to set up an appointment. 

Step 2: Our team will carefully inspect your property with equipment to determine the mold source.

Step 3: We will create a containment to prevent the mold from spreading to other unaffected areas. 

Step 4: We use filtration equipment to remove mold spores from the air. This is typically done by using air scrubbers. 

Step 5: Next, we perform antifungal/antimicrobial treatments and remove mold-infested porous materials, such as drywall and carpeting. 

Step 6: We will clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing and other items affected by mold. At SERVPRO, our team is trained to remove odors and deodorize with our specialized equipment. 

Step 7: The final step is restoration. In this step, any drywall, subfloors or other building supplies might be replaced.
