SERVPRO is your trusted restoration provider for all mold, and microbial growth issues

Mold remediation facts SERVPRO technicians always win at the game that mold often likes to play, -Hide-and-Seek

With sensational news stories and misleading advertising, you can easily understand why so many people are misinformed about indoor mold. Mold, microbial growth, and mildew -they all sound scary, however, some molds are not a bad thing. Take Penicillium, for instance, which is used in the production of some types of cheese. Did you also know mold is everywhere in the atmosphere? Our technicians know a thing or two, actually, we know a thousand things about mold because we have been in the classes, receive continuously updated training and certifications, and because we’ve assisted so many customers with mold remediation throughout the years.

Mold testing

We have the skills, tools, and incredible equipment to detect, find and eliminate mold and our technicians always win at the game that mold often likes to play, -Hide-and-Seek. While using our techy-testing equipment, we can capture which types of mold are in your environment and create the most effective and safe plan of action for the remediation of mold in your property.

Mold containment

When needed, our technicians use different types of containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold and keep it contained in the area that’s affected. We may use negative air chambers to isolate the contained area with physical barriers. I know, it sounds complex, but our technicians will explain this on-site so you can understand why we take such measures in helping our customers feel safe in the environment they’re in.

Air Filtration

Our technicians will use powerful-industrial grade air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of mold spores. These air filtration machines capture the microscopic mold spores out of the air. They are, "beasts of machines," and we enjoy having this top-of-the-line industrial equipment.

Air Duct Cleaning and Sanitizing

Whenever microbial growth is present in a home or a business, we always suggest getting the air ducts thoroughly cleaned to prevent any mold spores from spreading and creating another problem in other areas of your home or commercial property.

The actions listed above are just some of the services we can provide when you’re faced with a microbial growth issue. Yes, there is more! Call us today if you suspect mold, microbial growth, or any amount of excess moisture. We are Here to Help. You can reach us 24/7/52 @ 507-200-3700

            “We were on vacation and had our neighbor routinely check on our home and a pipe had burst in our basement. She felt so bad this happened on her watch. She had no idea how to clean it up or what to do. I asked our neighbor to remain calm, take a few breaths of air, and then turn our water main off. With bad cell phone reception in a different country, I remembered I had a magnet on my fridge given to me by technicians at the Steele County fair in Owatonna and asked her to call them. I was so glad I kept that magnet because it literally saved my home from so much damage. They helped dry my house, fix the issues, called the plumber for me, and kept me informed on every step of the process through emails. They even helped with insurance paperwork, the communications with my agent and adjuster. I was so relieved for all their help and won’t hesitate to call them again should I need to.”
