Mold Damage Emergency Tips
What you can do until help arrives
A lot of questions typically come up if you find mold in your home or business and even if you just suspect it. We are here to help if you suspect you may have an issue with mold in your home. Most of the time mold clean up and mitigation is a very straight forward process but it is important that it is done properly.
At SERVPRO of Minnetonka, we have several technicians who are certified by the IICRC as "Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians" (AMRT) who can evaluate mold issues in your home.
In addition we can use both moisture meters and infrared cameras to help determine where there may be moisture hiding behind walls and surfaces which helps determine the source of the problem.
Once the problem is identified or IICRC AMRT certified technicians can perform the mitigation according to published mold mitigation protocols.
