Holiday Decor, Storage, and Mold…. Surprise!

Mold Discovered behind storage box Area of mold was found while looking for Halloween decorations in the basement of a home in Kirkwood, MO.

As we begin to enter our closets, attics, and basements we get excited for seasonal décor and all our future company. The only down fall is that these are areas of our homes that we usually only enter a few times a year. We get out our pumpkins and scarecrows, followed by a plastic turkey or two, then finally that beautiful tree and all the totes that hold our precious memories. With that being said, we usually discover dust, possible mice droppings, and unfortunately mold!

Upon the discovery of mold or anything you think may be a form of mold, it is best to reach out to your local SERVPRO of West Kirkwood/Sunset Hills franchise. After a few simple questions, a Franchise Professional will be able to schedule and perform a proper inspection. We advise that you leave all content in place until we have properly assessed the damage. There are multiple steps that are taken when treating and removing mold.

We would begin services by providing mold containment. This would prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area. Following the containment, a certified technician of  SERVPRO of West Kirkwood/Sunset Hills  would use specialized filtration equipment to capture microscopic mold spores. This equipment may vary depending on the materials and the size of the contaminated area. Technicians would properly remove and dispose of all mold-infested porous materials, such as drywall and flooring. Finally, cleaning and sanitizing those belongings that you so desperately want to display is the last step in making your home safe and ready for the holidays! Our professionals are available 24/7 for all your restoration needs -314-858-1688.
