What To Expect During Mold Damage Restoration In Your Bethlehem Home?
What To Expect During Mold Damage Restoration
Mold is one of the most significant problems that a homeowner faces after water damage. If the moisture is not promptly and efficiently removed from the property after flooding, mold damage is almost inevitable. Apart from jeopardizing the structural integrity of your Bethlehem property, the mold may also pose a health risk.
It is essential to act fast and take steps to control mold damage in your Bethlehem home as soon as possible. Mold remediation is a complex process that should be carried out by professionals. Thankfully, here at SERVPRO, we have a team of mold remediation experts that can help you tackle this problem. We use a state-of-the-art, multi-step process to contain and eliminate mold as safely and efficiently as possible. Here are the steps involved in a typical mold remediation process.
1. Containing The damage
The first step toward restoring mold damage is to contain the mold and prevent it from spreading to the unaffected areas. Installing containment barriers, establishing a negative air pressure in the containment area and sealing HVAC vents are some of the crucial steps during this phase of the process.
2. Removing The Mold Contamination
SERVPRO professionals have expertise in removing mold contamination safely and efficiently. We use vacuum pumps equipped with High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters to remove mold from non-porous surfaces. If the mold has contaminated porous material such as carpet, drywall, and insulation, our technicians eliminate the mold by removing the source of contamination itself.
3. Cleaning And Eliminating Settled Spores
The settled spores are removed by HEPA vacuum. The HEPA filtration system can remove microscopic mold spores with an efficiency of up to 99.97% to prevent secondary growth. The cleaning of settled spores takes time and is usually performed in multiple stages to ensure complete elimination.
Drying is perhaps one of the most critical steps to prevent further mold growth. Once the cleaning process is complete, and spores have been eliminated, drying can begin. SERVPRO experts use state-of-the-art air movers and dehumidifiers to get rid of the moisture from the mold.
Mold remediation is a delicate process that requires a lot of skill and expertise. Make sure that you are seeking professional help as soon as you spot damage to limit the extent of damage and prevent it from spreading.
