SERVPRO Can Help Evaluate the Mold Situation in Your Property for the Best Solutions

Mold readily develops in a house when significant moisture is introduced in unwanted areas, affecting wall surfaces, ceilings, or even areas where water is commonly used, such as the bathrooms. Even though mold damage develops easily, resolving it requires significant work.

It is easy to trivialize the mold damage in your Northeast St. Petersburg home, especially if you do not understand what the signs you observe indicate. For instance, the patches of dark spots on surfaces can mean light or significant deterioration. That is why our SERVPRO technicians probe such an area with a hard tool to test whether the surface is hard or crumbles under pressure. Various other tests, including measuring moisture levels, reveal crucial information and thus the appropriate ways to resolve the issues.

Resolving Mold Contamination Takes Several Actions, Including:

  • Physically agitating surfaces
  • Chemical treatment
  • Drying moisture
  • Tearing down heavily contaminated materials

The actions necessary to resolve the issues at your property can vary depending on the severity of the contamination. When SERVPRO technicians evaluate your property, thoroughness, cost-effectiveness, and safety are the main concerns. For instance, before opting for material teardown, we evaluate whether they are porous and heavily contaminated. If not, other solutions such as cleaning and deodorizing are sufficient.

Cleaning a Mold-infested Property Requires:

  • Vacuuming to remove loose residues
  • Applying antimicrobial agents to cleaned surfaces
  • Deodorization to remove musty odors and other unpleasant smells

Chemicals are commonly used to enhance mold remediation processes. The most crucial aspect of any chemical used for this purpose is its interaction with microbes. Chemical products classified as antimicrobials are the best since they limit or stop growth.
