Steps In Remediation Of Mold Damage In Boynton Beach
Steps In Remediation Of Mold Damage
As small in size as individual mold particles come, the presence of mold can still cause problems anywhere inside a Boynton Beach residence. Porous materials are particularly vulnerable, even when their components come from non-cellulose sources. This includes concrete and stone because these building materials often contain a multitude of cracks, grooves, and other locations where microbes can hide.
Protecting your house in Boynton Beach from mold damage requires that you regain and continue to maintain control of the environment inside your property. This invasive microorganism requires moist conditions and a food source. While an absence of cellulose fibers may slow its growth down considerably, dust and other debris can provide mold with enough materials to sustain it.
SERVPRO provides mold damage remediation that involves several different steps which together make your home “Like it never even happened.” Each of these steps strengthens the other methods we use and helps keep mold and other microbes like mildew from returning later.
Containing the Area
We set up plastic sheeting to make close off the areas where the mold damage exists. We use the enclosure and powerful air movers to create negative pressure which pushes microbes, spores, and any dust outside your home. As we bag up sections of drywall, paneling, and other materials that contain mold, dust can become quite substantial.
Cleaning the Air
We clean the air in your home near the area we find mold in to help eliminate spores that already found their way into uncontaminated places. Air scrubbers come with HEPA filters that remove spores and microbes from the air.
Treating the Area
We use antimicrobial agents to help keep mold from coming back. These agents are safe around children, pets, and plants once dry. They also dry clear, and without any visible changes to the areas, we apply them.
Lowering Humidity to a Normal Range
Getting rid of excess moisture inside your home often means tracking down its source. Some residential properties contain more than one of these problem areas. SERVPRO technicians use hygrometers to locate these areas. Only then can we stop the unwanted moisture from coming into your home's living space.
