Mold Damage Cleanup Techniques
Mold Damage Cleanup Techniques That Residents of Beverly Hills Can Trust
Monitoring the level of dampness in your property is the key to stopping mold damage. Mold development is common in wet walls, attics, basements, and crawlspaces. Making sure your attics are well ventilated, stopping leaks, and directing water away from your building's foundation can help in preventing such experiences. We are going to cover some of the cleanup and repair procedures that our team performs when dealing with such incidents in Beverly Hills.
There are several techniques that our SERVPRO technicians use when addressing mold damage removal in Beverly Hills. The technique we choose is usually determined by the surface that is infested by the mold. If we are removing the mold from non-porous surfaces such as tiles, glass, tubs, and sinks, then we can scrub with an antimicrobial cleaner. The same procedure cannot work when we are dealing with porous surfaces such as drywall and carpets. We understand that mold can cause health effects, so we wear face masks, gloves, and other protective equipment when scrubbing the mold.
We have to replace porous materials such as soft furnishings, insulation, ceiling tiles, mattresses, and couch cushions once they have suffered excessive contamination. We use a vacuum fitted with a HEPA filter when cleaning up the dust and debris that results during the cleanup process. The collected debris is then put in plastic bags and then disposed of as per the local, state, and EPA regulations.
It can be challenging to eliminate mold from wooden surfaces completely. While in some cases it is advisable to remove and replace the host material, there are certain situations where we have to use specialized techniques to remove the mold. For instance, we can use sanding or soda-blasting to remove the contamination from wood. Our SERVPRO technicians have the skills and equipment to tend to affected heating and air conditioning ducts. Often the remediation of these conduits is essential in preventing the circulation of mold spores which can cause new infestations.
