Mold Remediation by ServiceMaster NCR
Moisture and humidity are the biggest causes of mold growth because the spores only need a source of moisture as well as an organic food source to start growing. Once the mold forms, it will continue to spread and cause damage to the surfaces it grows on while increasing the risk of allergies and other respiratory problems from exposure. The technicians of ServiceMaster NCR have the proper training, cleaning equipment, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to provide effective mold removal in Washington DC and keep the contamination contained to the already affected area. The mold remediation services we provide include:

Trifect Mold Remediation and InstaScope Testing
Traditional mold remediation services involve the removal of drywall to look for mold in hidden areas of the home which is a major hassle and very expensive. ServiceMaster NCR uses new technologies with the InstaScope testing system and Trifect mold remediation to provide mold removal that is more cost effective and much less invasive in your home.
We start by testing the air outside the home with the InstaScope testing system to get a baseline measurement and then test each room of the home to determine which rooms have elevated levels to find hidden mold growth. Once we uncover the scope of the mold growth, we begin the remediation with the Trifect method. The Trifect mold removal method is a new mold remediation technique in which mold growth is completely removed without removing any dry wall at a cost of over 50 percent less than more traditional methods. This method includes the following 3 steps:
- Surface application: A proprietary topical solution is applied to the surface to remove visible mold.
- MAG 50: Submicron aerosol decontamination is used to eliminate all mold including hidden mold.
- InstaScope verification: We test the level of airborne mold spores throughout the home to ensure that the mold has been effectively removed.

Mold Damage Tips
Moisture is the one condition that mold cannot grow without. This means that you must remove any excess water or moisture from your home and take care of the source of the moisture as well to reduce the risk of mold growth. Surfaces that are wet or showing signs of mold must be cleaned with water and detergent. Make sure you dry the area thoroughly after cleaning to get rid of all the moisture.
One of the biggest concerns with the presence of mold in a home or building is the potential health effects. Exposure to mold can trigger allergic reactions including coughing, nasal congestion, and skin and eye irritation. Extended exposure to mold can lead to more serious health issues such as fever and respiratory infections. It is possible for any water damaged building (WDB) to have a number of dangerous toxins and inflammagens including fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes, mycobacteria, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) according to the World Health Organization.
