Services SERVPRO Offers Cocoa Households with Mold Damage

4/25/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO gives you access to expertly trained mold remediation specialists that put vast resources and years of experience to work for you.

Why Cocoa Homes Require Procedural Mold Cleanup Services

Mold in a house is a nuisance and a risk since it can destroy structural materials or house contents. Since mold growth relies on naturally available organic materials fueled by moisture, eliminating the problem from your Cocoa home can be a challenge. One way to defeat mold damage is by relying on superior cleaning and drying procedures. Repairing compromised sections of a house also helps. 

In every Cocoa home, mold damage takes a different form. Growth can be gradual or aggressive. It might also develop openly or in hidden areas. SERVPRO can help you mount a response that adapts to these unique situations since we have thoroughly trained and IICRC-certified microbial remedial technicians. Sophisticated restoration equipment helps fast-track the processes or improve the outcomes.

Useful Actions Against Mold Include:

  • Removing mold colonies
  • Removing any deteriorated materials
  • Deodorization
  • Refinishing surfaces

The actions you need to take are based on infestation levels and the location of the contamination in your home. If the contamination only affects items or structural surfaces, cleaning to remove the masses of spores and other moldy materials should be sufficient. SERVPRO can facilitate such cleaning using non-moisture-based methods. Strong vacuums or blast cleaners are typical for such tasks. 

Safe Demolition to Reach the Mold

Removing moldy structural materials involves some demolition. Removal primarily targets porous materials like insulation, carpets, and drywall. Demolition can facilitate reach if the contamination is hidden behind other materials or allow the actual removal. Safety in a moldy area must be diverse since there are regular risks associated with construction work, such as falling objects and the hazards posed by microbes and fungus. For instance, skin contact or inhalation of such substances can cause health effects. 

Essential safety procedures in moldy areas include setting up containment to limit the spread of residues when cutting materials or cleaning surfaces abrasively. Identifying where utility lines like gas and power cables pass is essential to avoid accidentally damaging them or body injury.

Useful Equipment that Improves Safety

  • Manometers to confirm contained areas are airtight
  • Precision cutting tools
  • PPE such as gloves, boots, and respirators

A nicely done mold remediation exercise should involve some finishing steps. Our SERVPRO crews conduct deodorization in the affected areas and refinish any surfaces affected by cleaning demolition procedures. Dry fogging, air scrubbing, and activated oxygen are some of the top methods that help combat any odors left over after mold infestation. Our technicians use a thermal fogging device to vaporize a solvent-based deodorant producing fog or smoke with tiny particles for dry fogging. When a room is saturated with this fog, the deodorizer's particles spread widely and penetrate materials where they pair with odor molecules, neutralizing them. 

Particulate matter from mold colonies can remain suspended in the air. Odor or air quality issues are some typical effects of such residues. Our technicians can help cleanse the air within your property using an air scrubber. The device draws in dirty air and captures particles and odor molecules before exhausting the purified air back into the room. We use devices fitted with several filters, including High-Efficiency Particulate Air filters which can capture residues as small as 0.3 microns.
