SERVPRO Uses Multiple Approaches to Deal with Residues during Mold Remediation

After discovering mold in your Jacksonville home, one of your worries may be whether it is possible to eliminate all the residues left after dealing with the growth. Exposure to residues from mold can cause health effects, so your desire to eliminate all residues is well-founded. 

The approaches taken during mold remediation from Jacksonville homes determine whether residues are contained or spread throughout the property. Uncontrolled spreading can put the occupants as well as the restorers at risk. SERVPRO prioritizes containment before embarking on other restoration processes. 

Mold restoration processes fall into different categories, including:

  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold damage repairs
  • Mold remediation

If an inspection reveals that demolition is necessary to remove most of the moldy materials from sections of the property, our SERVPRO teams first set up containment barriers around the areas that need demolition. We ensure the barriers are airtight and set up negative air pressure machines within the containment to ensure no residues escape. 

When cleaning moldy surfaces, various methods can be used to remove the masses of mold colonies. Uncontrolled agitation of surfaces may be effective in loosening the materials. However, it is also likely to spread them all over the property or release them into the air.  SERVPRO technicians use a layered approach, starting with HEPA vacuuming surfaces before progressing to other methods like wet cleaning. 

Since some of the residues may still escape even with the precautions in place, running air scrubbers ensures that no particulate matter remains suspended in the air. Such devices suck in dirty air and pass it through a layer of filters before releasing clean air back into the environment or porting it to the exterior.

SERVPRO of Jacksonville South works diligently to guarantee positive outcomes after mold remediation processes. Call us at (904) 762-8066. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
