Safe Mold Remediation in Ft. Lauderdale Requires Expertise
I have identified mold in my home. What’s the next step I should take? The next step is ensuring effective mold remediation. When considering the potential permanent property damage that mold can cause, removing it from your property as fast as possible is essential.
You can trust the professionals at SERVPRO to perform mold remediation in your Ft. Lauderdale home. Different kinds of mold exist. Our technicians can identify the mold strain in your home and remediate it. We take several steps to remediate mold, including the following:
- Fixing moisture problems
- Isolating moldy areas
- Discarding absorbent materials
- Cleaning the mold away
- Thorough drying
Fixing moisture issues
If your home still has water ingress, remediating the mold is difficult. Therefore, if the mold problem results from a leak, our SERVPRO team can fix it first. Additional ventilation may be necessary if the mold issue is present in a naturally wet environment like the bathroom.
Isolating moldy areas
Any airflow occurring across moldy surfaces can cause mold spores to spread around the building. We can isolate moldy areas from unaffected areas before demolition, drying, or cleaning to prevent cross-contamination.
Discarding absorbent materials
Removing certain items that mold has affected, especially porous ones, is necessary. We can use specialized techniques to clean such items or discard them. For instance, furniture and carpets have fibers where mold can remain after cleaning them. Discarding them prevents the issue from recurring.
Cleaning away the mold
Once we remove highly affected porous materials like gypsum board, our SERVPRO technicians can clean remaining materials like Douglas fir framing and plywood subfloors. We can remove the visible traces of mold and then use a biocide or antimicrobial spray to clean the surfaces through wet wiping.
During the mold remediation process, it is necessary to perform thorough drying. We accomplish this using air movers and dehumidifiers. Our SERVPRO team can also use moisture meters to determine if the affected materials are dry.
