Mold Damage Remediation in Tallahassee
SERVPRO Technicians Do Their Due Diligence When Remediating a Mold Infestation in a Home
Tallahassee has had more than its fair share of fire and water this year; especially water. With so many homes underwater or isolated by storm damage, mold has become a huge source of secondary damage to area homes.
Stopping and cleaning Tallahassee mold damage is extremely important for rebuilding area homes. SERVPRO knows that finding a mold infestation means certain things can happen: It slows down and sometimes stops the restoration work, this increases the cost to you and your insurance carrier, and, mold can cause health effects.
If one of our restoration team members finds mold, we pull technicians off other tasks to determine the extent of the infestation. We use air content meters to find the highest concentration of mold spores and trace it back to its origin.
Next, we find and stop the water source which feeds the mold growth. Usually, this is a leak, but in an already water damaged home, this can also be a water-soaked carpet or building material like drywall. When that happens, our only option is to remove the affected material and property from the home.
Other property not water soaked can still be affected by mold. The surfaces of these items and the spores on them are usually dry, which makes it fairly simple to remove them. Restoration team members carefully wipe down these surfaces top to bottom with dry sponges or soft cloths.
Property not affected by mold still requires protection as we remove the infested material. SERVPRO technicians spray an anti-fungal cleaning agent on surfaces to protect them from our removal actions and any mold spores that are already loose in the surrounding air.
Each of these actions increases the number of labor hours, equipment needed and cleaning agents used in each home. Although the health effects of mold are minimal to most people, we are not experts and prefer to leave each home cleaner than when we arrived.
