Rockledge, FL Mold Damage Remediation

Is your Rockledge Home or Business Affected by Mold?

Mold is a common threat to Rockledge homes and businesses. The humid environment plays a factor in this, but elements like human error, accidents, and water damage in commercial structures like the Colony Hall or the Cocoa-Rockledge Garden Club can ultimately lead to the ideal conditions to facilitate mold growth. As a leading mold remediation company in Southern Florida, our SERVPRO of Central Brevard team can help with a fast and confident response to identify mold threats and work to remove these colonies.

Containment Strategies for Mold Threats in Rockledge Properties

There is no mistaking the fast pace of mold spread under the right conditions, so properties like the Rockledge Regional Medical Center and the residential districts like Barton Avenue and Valencia Subdivision can become overwhelmed when moisture is widespread in the buildings. Containment can help these situations in several ways, including:

• Stopping the spread of active mold spores
• Regulating drying and mold remediation
• Preventing cross-contamination

Mold Remediation Strategies

Removing mold colonies is the primary focus of remediation. The presence of mold can be hazardous through the release of volatile organic compounds, so removing these microbial threats from high-traffic areas like the Rockledge Country Club and Joe Lee Smith Recreation Center is vital. Soda blasting, sanding, and antimicrobial products can also be safe practices for the historic properties in the region like the H.S. Williams House or the Marion S. Whaley Citrus Packing House.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return. 
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (321) 638-4947

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Rockledge, FL home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

SERVPRO of Central Brevard will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Rockledge, FL home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
