Options for Destin Residents after a Mold Damage Experience
SERVPRO Technicians Follow Standards and Guidelines When Remediating a Mold Infestation in Your Home
Homes and commercial buildings with excess moisture and standing water are likely to experience mold damage. Indoor mold can cause health effects and cause damage to your property if you do not act quickly and ensure the right remediation procedures are in place. It is possible to smell or visually identify the mold once it has developed in your Destin home.
We use several methods to address mold damage problems in Destin, and we choose the techniques by looking at the extent of contamination and the type of items that need cleaning. The primary goal that our SERVPRO technicians have during this time is to fix the moisture problem, clean restorable materials and discard items which are contaminated beyond use. When we are cleaning the mold off hard surfaces, we can use detergents and water, and at the same time scrub using a stiff brush. After rinsing and drying the surface, we can finally use a disinfectant to sterilize any present bacteria and fungi to prevent chances of the problem recurring.
Our SERVPRO technicians observe safety precaution during the remediation process. For instance, we wear a disposable overall when entering a building with visible mold growth. We also use N-95 rated respirators or full-face respirators, rubber gloves, and safety boots. Usually, we follow the OSHA standards when choosing the PPE.
After removing the mold and cleaning the contaminated surfaces, it is vital to dry wet surfaces and items properly. Air conditioners, auxiliary electric heaters, dehumidifiers, and fans are some of the drying equipment that our SERVPRO technicians use. After drying, we can use penetrative/intrusive moisture meters to check whether we have achieved our drying goal since relying on sight or touch can be misleading. We presume wet materials are dry when their moisture content is less than 15%.
