We Safely Remediate Mold Damage In Rocky Point
Mold Damage is the Result of Untreated Water Damage in Rocky Point Residence
It might seem easy to put off fixing a small, slow leak without the thought of the water damage that could be occurring the longer it drips away behind the scenes. Then time passes, and the leak turns into something bigger.
Mold damage is a common occurrence in Rocky Point properties when leaks go unrepaired for some time. The speed at which mold colonies develop and spread is dependent on a few environmental factors such as the overall ambient temperature and also if consumable items are in the vicinity such as paper, wood, or sheetrock, to name a few favorites.
The technicians undergo extensive training in the restoration sciences, and the in-depth remediation of mold is part of that training. They know how to remove dried colonies safely and contain affected areas to inhibit cross-contamination.
Standard Steps During Professional Mold damage Remediation
First and foremost, the SERVPRO technicians identify the reason for the mold growth; in this case, a slow leak that kept an area within a wall moist created the perfect environment for mold growth. Once the colonies establish themselves, they spread rapidly.
Containment using heavy plastic to surround the affected area, including doorways and vents, is a regular procedure. Another common action is the inspection and cleaning of the HVAC to ensure that there is no mold growth in the ductwork. The technicians remove damaged sheetrock and items with no restoration potential and dispose of it safely.
Mold cannot exist when ambient humidity levels are below 50%, so using both air movers and dehumidification equipment, SERVPRO technicians carefully dry the colonies and monitor air moisture levels. Afterward, the dried mold gets removed using either manual methods or for large-scale infestations; soda blasting is a common abatement tactic. After the removal of the existing, dried colonies, technicians clean the areas with antimicrobial agents. To diminish the chances of mold returning before the necessary repairs happen, SERVPRO technicians commonly treat areas where infestations occurred with antimicrobial sealants.
