SERVPRO Offers Mold Damage Cleanup for Your Home

Apart from damaging your property, mold damage can cause health effects, and it is necessary to put in place containment measures to prevent it from spreading. Containing the situation requires the use of Personal Protective Equipment and specialized skills that professionals possess. If you are a Montgomery resident, make sure the remediation starts immediately to avoid the possibility of permanent damage.

Cleaning is one of the remediation procedures that our SERVPRO technicians perform when addressing mold damage in Montgomery. Before we settle on an appropriate method, we first analyze the level of damage. If we are cleaning the mold that is resting on hard materials, we may opt for wet vacuuming. It is a method that we employ to collect water from hard surfaces such as carpets and floors.

Though there is a chance for mold fragments to remain in porous items, once the material is dry, they cannot grow. If we are dealing with upholstered furniture and carpets, then steam cleaning can be an option. Our SERVPRO team can also use detergents and water to damp-wipe surfaces. In the case of wooden floors, we prefer scrubbing, using a wood floor cleaner. The detergent solutions we use have antimicrobial abilities that prevent chances of mildew, bacteria or mold growth. For items that are unsalvageable, we first seal them in plastic bags before discarding them.

Once we remove the contaminated items and dry everything, we can perform High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming as a final method of remediation. It is also a suitable technique when you need to remove any dust outside or within the remediation place. If we have to change the vacuum's filter, we wear PPE to stay safe from mold exposure.

In some cases, mold growth might take place in hard to access areas such as in wall cracks and floor gaps. In such a case, our SERVPRO technicians use a thermal fogger to direct deodorants into those tiny places. The fog is small in size and can neutralize odor-causing particles and sterilize the areas.
