Mold Damage Remediation Options for Residents of Walpole
Team SERVPRO Thoroughly Remediates a Mold Infestation at Your Home
After any water intrusion in your property, it is essential to dry the water-soaked contents and areas as soon as possible to prevent the possibility of mold damage. Most organic materials readily decompose after exposure to bacteria and mildew, which means you need to treat such situations with the urgency that they deserve to prevent further damage. We are providing some of the options that residents of Walpole should consider when they come across such an experience.
Our SERVPRO technicians understand moisture is the primary source of mold damage in your Walpole property. That is why we usually start by identifying and removing the source of the water. If the intrusion is coming from leaking plumbing, we fix the system as part of the remediation process. To prevent contamination and to spread the spores, we usually switch off ventilation, heating and HVAC systems that are on the site. If we notice that the filters of the HVAC systems are already contaminated, we can do a replacement.
It is the work of our SERVPRO technicians to remove both the non-contaminated and contaminated materials from the site before structural remediation starts. If we notice that porous materials such as carpets, ceiling tiles, and wallpaper have the contamination, we discard them off. In some instances, we use HEPA vacuuming to remove dust and spores from the surfaces of porous materials as long as they are dry and do not have any mold growth.
A combination of HEPA vacuuming, scrubbing, and scraping provides an option when cleaning and removing mold growth from semi-porous materials. If we are dealing with glass, tiles or any form of non-porous materials, we first scrub them before using any cleaning procedure. If the contamination was a result of sewage or floodwater, there might be a need to use disinfectants or biocides when cleaning.
Our SERVPRO technicians put contaminated materials in polyethylene bags to prevent spore dispersal, ready for disposal. Before we recommend any replacement, we carefully check on a material's structural integrity and level of contamination. After the remediation, we follow-up to be sure your home is back to its former state.
