Mold Damage Should Never Stress You When As A Resident Of Hampton
Mold Damage In Your Home
A successful mold damage remediation process is normally determined by the remediation plan that restorers put in place. It all starts when restoration technicians assess the degree of the mold problem and the damaged items. We outline the procedures to use to fix the moisture problem and the suitable PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) to use when returning your Hampton property to its earlier state. Different situations demand different remediation plans due to the varying complexity and level of contamination.
When dealing with mold damage incidents in Hampton, our SERVPRO technicians turn off all HVAC systems in the structure. We do this to prevent spreading the mold spore to clean areas. In cases where we trace some contamination near its intake system, we follow the EPA standards to clean the air ducts. We can also replace the contaminated filters at the end of the remediation process.
While in some situations it can be easy to identify mold growth, it is not always the case. Sometimes it can grow in hidden areas such as at the backside of wallpapers, drywall, in utility tunnels, in pipe chases, and inside the ductwork. Our SERVPRO technicians observe caution when investigating mold damage in hidden areas. For instance, if we disturb the mold that is growing beneath wallpapers can lead to the unwanted release of spores and possibly further damage.
Mold cleanup is part of the remediation process, and the method we use depends on the surfaces and items that we are cleaning. If we have to collect water from carpets, floors and other hard surfaces, then we can decide to use wet vacuuming. We do not use this method when cleaning porous contents. Scrubbing and wiping is also an option when removing mold damage from non-porous or hard surfaces. We use a disinfectant during this process to prevent a possible re-occurrence.
