What To Do During Mold Damage Remediation in Pensacola
Learn About The Correct Mold Remediation Procedure For Your Pensacola Property
Mold damage remediation is about all the procedures that are put in place to clean up both the mold and dry moisture in the structure. The primary goal of the remediation procedures is to return the structure and items to their preloss state, as opposed to creating a fungi-free and sterile environment. The level of contamination usually determines the procedures we use when addressing such events in Pensacola.
Identifying the mold damage in your Pensacola property is the first thing that our SERVPRO technicians do when attending to such incidents. While it is possible to identify some mold growth through a visual inspection, there are chances of going unnoticed when it grows above ceilings, in attics, behind walls or in crawl spaces. With the use of specialized devices such as infrared cameras and moisture meters, we are in a position to detect any hidden mold growth sources. We examine the area for flooding, high humidity, leaking windows or roofs, plumbing, as well as condensation which may occur as a result of poor insulation. Usually, continuous discoloration on ceilings and calls can indicate the presence of mold.
Our SERVPRO technicians then correct the moisture intrusion problem and formulate a mold cleanup plan. To come up with the cleaning procedures, we use the information from the inspection. For instance, the actions we use when dealing with porous materials can be different from the one we use on non-porous materials. In most cases, we remove and discard porous materials such as insulation, wallboards, and ceiling tiles when they have mold contamination. On the other hand, we can use detergent solutions to clean porous and semi-porous items such as concrete and wood when they structurally sound.
Areas with mold growth have unpleasant odors, and the smells cannot go away event after completing the cleaning. By using thermal foggers, our SERVPRO technicians can perform deodorization. This process emits a chemical compound which neutralizes the odors and in the process improves the quality of air.
