When there is mold damage in your home, our professionals must react quickly to preserve these materials before the colony does irreparable damage.

How We Remove Mold From Wood In Your Colorado Springs Home

With some materials in your Colorado Springs home, it is easier to remove them when they become damaged and replace them with new materials rather than work to restore them. With instances like mold growth throughout your property, certain materials are worth working to preserve as replacing them could be costlier in the long run. Wood flooring and framework are often within these categories.

When there is mold damage in your Colorado Springs home, our professionals must react quickly to preserve these materials before the colony does irreparable damage. There are undoubtedly instances in which these materials become too badly damaged to preserve, but our SERVPRO mentality is to preserve structural elements before we tear out excessively without the need to do so.

With wood flooring, it becomes essential for our technicians to locate the source of the moisture affecting the floor and eliminate the continual exposure. While this situation gets resolved, our SERVPRO team can bring in our specialized equipment like our drying mats to begin pulling moisture out of the affected materials in a slow draw. We inspect the wood for any signs of warping or distortion, as these would indicate a need for the material to get removed and replaced.

Gentle sanding along with the introduction of antimicrobial solution can help to penetrate the entire hyphae seated into the flooring material. If it gets determined that the mold has eroded the material beyond restoration through these steps, it gets removed and replaced entirely throughout the affected areas. This scenario is common for water damage incidents that did not get cleaned and dried sufficiently, and moisture and dampness could continue to affect the flooring for a long time.

Restoring your wood floor is possible when you reach out to our dedicated professionals as quickly as possible when you encounter mold growth. Give our SERVPRO of Northern Colorado Springs / Tri-Lakes rapid response team a call, and we can get to work on drying out the damaged elements and removing the mold colony affecting your home. Reach out to us today at (719) 434-4626.
