How do Professionals Get Rid of Mold Damage from Your Goulding Property?
SERVPRO’s Process of Mold Damage Remediation
Mold damage restoration is a job for the professionals. Trying to do it yourself can worsen the situation and spread the mold to uncontaminated areas rapidly. Furthermore, the mold may have health effects and professionals have the proper protective equipment to minimize this.
Mold damage restoration in your Goulding property is a multi-step process involving the use of sophisticated equipment and technical skill. Here is a list of some of the significant steps in the process of the mold damage remediation process.
Containing the Damage
One of the first things that SERVPRO technicians do as soon as they identify mold on your property is to contain the damage. Stopping the mold from spreading to the uncontaminated area is a priority during the initial steps of the process. Our IICRC-certified technicians install plastic sheeting and other contamination barriers to prevent the spread of mold. Other steps such as creating a negative air pressure and sealing the HVAC vents are also taken depending on the extent and severity of the contamination.
Establishing Clean Rooms
Another thing that SERVPRO technicians do during the initial phase of the process is to establish clean rooms and decontaminated rooms. These rooms serve as a space to store equipment and other material.
Mold Remediation Process
Once the mold damage is contained, and clean rooms are established, the next thing that SERVPRO technicians do is to get rid of the mold itself. Any porous material that is extensively damaged by mold is disposed of safely. For most of the non-porous material, the mold is removed by using a HEPA vacuum if the surface is dry. If the surface is wet, the technicians use the damp wiping technique to scrub off the mold using a detergent solution.
Cleaning the Dust and Settled Spores
The next step involves cleaning the dust and settled spores. Our technicians use a HEPA vacuum system in multiple stages to achieve a complete and efficient removal of spores from your property.
The last step is getting rid of any residual moisture from the contaminated areas. Excessive moisture can help the mold to spread to uncontaminated places easily within your home. We use equipment such as dehumidifiers, air movers, and air scrubbers to ensure that your property is dry and secondary damage is minimized.
