The Mold Remediation Process
Recently we posted a video about a process the team at SERVPRO of West Brown County works on a lot: mold remediation. We thought a good idea would be to expand upon that video with a blog post explaining what you can expect when you call us in to your home or business for a mold remediation project.
As we’ve said in the past, mold will grow on wet, porous materials. The longer something like drywall or carpeting is wet, the more likely it is to experience mold growth.
So, at the first sign of fungus, call us at 920-434-8224.
Once our technicians arrive, they will do a full check to see where the mold is growing. Then they will set up a containment space to ensure mold spores do not travel outside of the affected areas.
The techs will set up that containment space by creating a negative air chamber by putting up actual plastic barriers. Then they will run a high-efficiency air scrubber that will contain the mold spores and keep the rest of the air in the building clean.
Our team may need to remove some affected building materials like drywall and carpeting if they experience mold growth. Often, those kinds of materials are not salvageable after mold. The technicians will clean any structural materials that cannot be taken out with a mold stain removal product.
In the final step of the mold remediation process itself, team members will spray anti-bacterial and anti-microbial solution over the affected areas to ensure they’re as clean as possible.
Our employees can also perform any reconstruction or rebuilding that may need to be done as a result of the mold remediation process.
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Call us at the first sign of mold.
