Burlington, CT Mold Damage Remediation
Groundwater and humidity are nearly constant concerns for the homes near the Nassahegon State Forest and the Nepaug Reservoir. Moisture infiltration can lead to ideal conditions for mold development and microbial threats. Our experienced remediation team can help the needs of homes like:
- Water removal services
- Attic mold removal
- Antimicrobial cleaning
- Mold inspections
Can Containment Make Remediation Faster?
Physical barriers are one of the effective approaches that can help our team better manage mold conditions and microbial development and spread in a household. Containment with polypropylene sheeting prevents active spores from spreading in the residence and allows for an easier regulation of moisture and humidity.
What is a Preferred Remediation Method for Burlington Homes?
There is no singularly beneficial remediation solution because the conditions of a mold-damaged home and its hosting materials can change so dramatically. Surface cleaning with antimicrobial products can be a preferred choice for light damage. More aggressive measures can remove set-in mold damage with practices like sanding, media blasting, and more.
How Do Musty Malodors Get Removed from Burlington Properties?
Odors are a typical threat produced by volatile organic compounds generated by active colonization. While this effect can indicate where mold threats exist, it is also a lingering issue that is hard to remove during the remediation process. Our SERVPRO team works with powerful deodorization equipment to manage these concerns after remediation.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (860) 582-3330
We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Bristol will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Burlington, CT home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
