The SERVPRO Mold Remediation Process
Once mold growth is found, it is vital to have it taken care of as soon as possible. Our mold remediation process will remove harmful mold from your property and help prevent further growth. Typically, the process involves the following:
- Inspection: Our trained technicians use specialized equipment to locate and identify any mold growth in your property. In many cases, mold will thrive in inaccessible or unseen areas as it feeds on moisture and cellulose materials. The source of the moisture must be eliminated to cut off any further fungal growth.
- Containment: Because any released spores contain mycotoxins that may be hazardous to your health, it is important to set up a containment area. Any fans and HVAC units are shut down to prevent spore circulation through the ductwork. Poly plastic barriers and negative air chambers are then set up to isolate the spores in one area. Air scrubbers and HEPA filtered vacuums are also used to further aid in the containment process.
- Treating Infected Items: Removal of any mold-infested furniture, upholstery and building materials for discarding or cleaning is another important element to the mold remediation process. Restoration or replacement of affected materials will depend on the level of infestation and mold damage. Our aim at SERVPRO is to save and restore as much of your personal possessions as possible.
- Air Safety: Our IICRC-trained technicians will use EPA-approved antimicrobial and antifungal disinfectants to kill any active mold. Specialized foggers and cleaning agents are then used to deodorize your house. This will ensure air quality is safe and breathable.
