Mold Remediation and Restoration

Mold Damage in Fitchburg, WI

SERVPRO of Dane County West uses Advanced Industrial Equipment for High Efficiency Air Filtration

SERVPRO of Dane County West uses HEPA Industry-Standard Air Scrubbers to handle indoor air quality that’s needed on most restoration jobs.  Jobs that involve sewage, mold, or fire damage clearly involves significant amounts of particulates and smelly gases – a direct result of the damage itself.  In a water damage restoration environment, the high-velocity airflow needed for drying can stir up particles that have settled in carpet or on other materials.  The HEPA 500 can address indoor air quality quickly and efficiently and help restore any environment to a preloss condition.

Mold in Bathroom

It's very common for mold to be found in bathrooms. One obvious reason why is that there's lots of water and humidity in the bathroom. 

When the water in the bathroom does dry out it evaporates into the air and increases the humidity. Steam from the shower or a hot bath also makes the bathroom more humid. Since bathrooms are often not well ventilated the humidity tends to hang around and wet surfaces take a long time to dry out. As seen in this picture above, a black mold patch developed. 

We specialize in water and mold damage restoration, with advance training in restoration techniques and the experience and specialized equipment to quickly restore your property.

Bathroom Mold

Mold can often be found in the shower and the bathtub. Grime from body oils and soap scum which is washed off and onto the shower or tub create a food source for mold to feed on. And of course there are abundant water sources for mold created by the running water and steam.

Since mold can produce allergens and irritants, you should call SERVPRO of Dane County West to inspect your Madison home if you suspect you have a mold problem. If mold is found, we have the training, equipment, and expertise to re-mediate your mold infestation.
