Lynn Trusts SERVPRO for Mold Removal Services

Our expert mold removal technicians protect Lynn area homes with different highly effective methods. Dry ice pellets evaporate quickly into an easily dissipated gas. Because these pellets’ freezing temperatures kill microbes, releasing spores becomes impossible, creating a more thorough process.

When homeowners in Lynn need mold removal services, SERVPRO uses the most effective methods. We can only use dry ice pellets on unpainted wood, concrete, or brick because abrading these cause no damage like it would on finished or painted surfaces. Our team can clean glass, metal, tile, and other smooth surfaces with sponges instead.

Blasting with dry ice pellets results in an accumulation of dust made of dead mold. This dust is easily vacuumed and removed from the area. Here are some points of interest that can give you some information about dry ice blasting:

  • Leaves wood looking like new and cleans other hard materials like concrete and brick,
  • Requires personal protective equipment (PPE) for our mold removal technicians, and
  • Perfect for smaller areas, like closets, attic enclosures, or under cabinets.
  • Process does not introduce additional moisture

We enclose the affected area with plastic sheeting for large areas, like your great room or adjoining walls in your sunroom. Plastic sheeting can form a negative pressure system, helping to keep unaffected areas from getting dirty. The dead mold falls to the floor while the dry ice pellets evaporate into the air.

When we finish the work, we check for the moisture’s source. The repairs can also be done prior to the remediation service–depending on the circumstances. The problem could be with the house’s envelope, a water line leak, an appliance, or another issue. Our construction team can help resolve any deficits, which helps ensure that the environment becomes uninhabitable for any future microbes.

SERVPRO of Lynn / Lynnfield has highly trained experts in mold removal ready to help defend your home and clean everything, so you can relax and no longer worry about the damage microbes can cause. Call us at (781) 214-3705, 24/7, year-round.
