Why SERVPRO Can Help You Defeat Recurrent Mold Damage Issues in Olean
If mold starts developing on your property, it can recur despite your best efforts to remove it, costing money and causing anguish. Defeating mold takes several steps, performed together and in time to counter microbial development. It also requires a combination of skills to remove existing colonies and neutralize spores to hinder further development. Choosing a team with IICRC-certified applied microbial remediation technicians like SERVPRO could help simplify the process.
Spores are central to the process of microbial development. Successful remediation of mold damage in your Olean property must, therefore, include actions that kill spores. Our SERVPRO technicians use cleaning agents with antimicrobial properties to stop microbial development. We also use disinfectants such as phenols, alcohol, or chlorine to destroy a wide variety of microbes. We can also use sporicides, which control bacterial and fungal spores effectively.
Cleansing Infested Surfaces
Cleaning all materials infested by mold colonies is essential to deal with the problem and restore pre-damaged physical appearance. Such cleaning might require different approaches depending on the level of infestation. Our SERVPRO technicians HEPA vacuum surfaces to remove loose mold debris and excess spores before damp wiping. Sometimes we also use specialized techniques such as soda blasting to clean mold-infested surfaces. The sodium bicarbonate used in the process helps in many ways, including killing spores and deodorizing the affected area removing the musty odor associated with mold.
Safe Demolition of Moldy Areas
In many cases, the bulk of mold colonies develops out of site in subfloors, wall cavities, behind sinks, and other hidden areas. Controlled demolition is essential to reach such areas and remove the offending mold and any porous materials affected by the infestation. Our SERVPRO technicians are aware of the risks of releasing loose mold debris into the air when tearing down affected areas. We use plastic zipper bags to isolate the affected area from the rest of the house. We also run negative air machines in the areas we demolish, limiting the chances of spreading debris.
Mold causes different inconveniences, so swiftly eliminating it is desirable. Call SERVPRO of Jamestown / Olean at (716) 338-4901 to help. We work hard to address all aspects of the infestation "Like it never even happened."
