SERVPRO's Better And Faster Two Step Process For Removing Mold In Your Destin Home
Remediation And Restoration Of Mold Damage In Destin
Getting rid of mold is a two-step process involving remediation and restoration. Remediation is what we do to remove the visible signs of damage and carry out preventative measures. It can be a complicated procedure which involves finding the source of mold, cleaning indoor air quality, removing non-salvageable materials and disinfecting the affected area. Once remediation is complete, we can begin restoration which focuses on returning your home to its preloss condition.
Signs of mold damage in Destin properties could include a strong, musty odor or visible colonies. Mold spores can only grow in areas where there is moisture, so it can be essential to check for structural or plumbing issues and fix them before remediation begins. When you call our emergency line, we ask a few questions to determine the type of equipment we need, the extent of damage and the type of personnel.
We have dealt with many properties with mold infestations, and few of them have been the same. However, despite the variety in size, type and extent of mold damage, SERVPRO has developed a general set of guidelines that is a proven success. On arrival, your technician conducts an inspection. Sometimes we may need to remove floorboards or sections of drywall to check for infections or hidden water sources.
Once a SERVPRO technician has completed an inspection, we can set up containment zones. Containment zones can be cordoned off using physical barriers like sealed plastic sheeting or negative air pressure. We do this to ensure mold spores cannot spread into unaffected areas of your home during the cleanup effort.
SERVPRO uses air filtration units with HEPA filters that are capable of removing microscopic spores from surrounding air. These can be placed in the affected area as cleaning work is carried out to reduce the likelihood of mold returning after the service or being spread around your home as work is carried out.
We can use an anti-fungal or anti-microbial cleaning treatment to remove mold colonies and prevent them returning. In cases where porous materials are deemed unsalvageable, we may have to remove insulation, drywall, carpets or curtains permanently. These are disposed of correctly in designated clean-rooms or taken with us after service.
We always work toward a restore over replace method. We can take special care of your contents using different cleaning techniques including mechanical cleaning for fabrics at a SERVPRO facility. Thoroughly deodorizing the affected areas after service is a priority for home-owners and we can carry out restoration of any carpets, drywall or re-painting to bring your home back to a preloss condition.
