How Do Professionals Perform Mold Damage Remediation in Your Naples / Macro Island Home?
Rely on SERVPRO Professionals to Remediate Mold Damage in Your Home
Mold damage can spread quickly if you are not careful and act fast once you spot the early signs of growth. Getting help from qualified professionals as soon as possible is perhaps the best solution to remedy the damage and prevent it from recurring.
SERVPRO professionals use a multi-faceted approach during the mold damage remediation process in your Naples / Macro Island home. Here are a few things that you should expect during the remediation process.
Establishing a Containment Zone
One of the first things in the remediation process is to establish a containment zone. Mold spores can become lose and airborne during the cleaning process and spread to the uncontaminated area of your home. SERVPRO professionals can install physical barriers and establish negative air pressure in the contaminated area to prevent the spores from spreading. Professionals use plastic shields for this purpose, and HVAC ducts may also need to be sealed off. The restoration experts can also establish ‘Cleanrooms' and ‘decontamination rooms' as well.
Removing the Contamination Itself
Once the experts contain the mold damage in the first step, the next thing is to eliminate the damage itself. The growth in porous surfaces is most difficult to clean. As a result, if there is an extensive growth on a porous material such as fabric, drywall, and carpeting, eliminating them is the best option.
The growth on non-porous material such as glass and metal is often cleaned using HEPA filtration and wiping with a detergent solution. Multiple rounds of HEPA vacuuming can be used to eliminate the mold.
Sanding, wire brushing, and damp wiping can be used to clean semi-porous material such as wood and concrete.
Cleaning of the Settled Spores
The cleaning process inevitably causes the spores to become airborne. The next step is to eliminate these airborne spores once they settle on the ground. Multiple rounds of HEPA filtration and damp wiping are needed to eliminate these settled spores. It can take time for this process to complete, but it drastically reduces the chance of recurring mold damage.
