Mold Cleaning

All Things Vacuumed

Did you know getting rid of mold from your Carthage, MO home isn't as easy as just going in and wiping it all down? Our team goes in and uses a HEPA vac, which filters out the mold spores and traps them instead of recirculating them back in to the air like a regular vacuum.  We vacuum the ceilings, walls, windows, and contents in the very beginning of the mold clean up.

Mold Can Grow Shortly After A Water Damage Occurs

Some species of mold can begin growth just two days after optimal conditions are reached. Each species of mold varies in the time and temperature in which they grow but all mold growth begins with high moisture. SERVPRO of Carthage/Joplin has years of experience remediating mold damage in the Joplin, MO area.

Air Scrubber During a Mold Remediation

Mold spores are tiny and it does not take much effort to get them airborne. Once airborne they migrate to other areas in your Carthage home or business, and that can be an issue down the road. During the remediation process an air scrubber like this one is used to filter out the mold spores that may have been disrupted in the cleaning process.
