Why SERVPRO? Mold doesn't stand a chance when we are on the job!
Mold development in our area is not a desirable outcome for various reasons, including the deterioration it causes to various materials. Mold remediation is an elaborate process comprising several steps.
Some challenges can also develop complicating the process further. Mold spores occur naturally in the air, which means that proliferation can happen at any time. It affects a wide range of materials, including:
Safety During the Remediation Process
During or after the mold remediation processes, there is a risk of exposure to mold debris through skin contact or inhalation. Such exposure can lead to health effects. Our SERVPRO technicians take steps to minimize the chances of such contact for the team fixing the problem and the house occupants. We create physical barriers with plastic sheets and zipper-lock access, isolating the affected areas from the rest of the home. We also run negative air pressure machines when demolishing infested areas such as walls preventing the spread of spores and other debris through the air. Our skilled team can rig poly ducts, connected to air scrubbers or air movers, to channel work area interior air to the exterior of the building. This is another effort to mitigate the potential for contaminating clean areas of the structure.
Spot Stain Removal
Mold affects materials in different ways, including compromising the structural integrity by consuming the organic material as food. For contents such as upholstery, staining might occur. The staining may be classified as a color-adding type of soiling and may be reversed by removing the mold residues. Our SERVPRO technicians use spot stain removal to deal with the stains first. If necessary, we can clean the entire item using specialized upholstery cleaning equipment, which helps eliminate other soils and the musty odor from the mold.
Having the Right Cleaning Agents
Mold infestations can recur even after thorough removal efforts. Having the right cleaning agents helps suppress growth immediately after finishing the remediation process. AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians from SERVPRO use different chemical agents to stop and delay growth. Cleaning agents with antimicrobial properties help stop current growth. We also use disinfectants such as phenols and alcohols to destroy the microorganisms.
