When dealing with mold inside your St. Petersburg home, it is essential to know how it gets formed and how it behaves. Any time water gets inside your home and does not get dried promptly a fungus possibly gets created. Once any mold gets noticed, it is vital to treat the area so that the fungi do not spread to other locations inside the building.
The presence of mold inside a house possibly causes health effects for some people. St. Petersburg's mold damage experts employed by SERVPRO get educated about fungal behavior and the remediation process. Our primary goal when remediating a fungi problem is to stop growth at the source so that it doesn't spread to other areas of the home.
A fungus first gets created by a spore which is a microscopic, seed-like structure. The spores branch out little structures called hyphae that spread all directions and release more spores into the air. The little seeds then become airborne and float around the building until they land in other rooms.
The first thing SERVPRO does when we start to mitigate mold is to contain the affected area. Plastic gets put up around the region to prevent mold spores from spreading to other areas. Many times, negative air pressure is pulled from the containment chamber sucking the contaminated air into a HEPA filter.
Next, we remove all of the mold contamination found within the contained area. Porous materials often get discarded while non-porous materials possibly get sanded and cleaned with anti-microbial chemicals. Drywall sometimes gets removed, put in a sealed bag and taken to a dumpster.
After all of the items showing mold contamination get removed a final cleaning starts. During the cleaning process dust and settled spores get vacuumed up by a vacuum with a HEPA filter. Then the area gets cleaned one last time with anti-microbial cleaning products.
Lastly, drying equipment gets set up to drop moisture levels in the affected area so that mold doesn't have the moisture it needs to grow back. If you ever have a mold problem, call SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg at (727) 522-0000 for help 24/7.
