What Does Mitigating Mold Damage in Mississauga Properties Involve?
SERVPRO Provides Comprehensive In-House Solutions for Mold Restoration
Mold is a naturally occurring element that aids in natural decay processes. Mold development in any part of your structure, interior or exterior, is not a good sign since it is a precursor to many problems, including visual and structural deterioration. Mitigating mold damage is the process of eliminating the harmful effects of mold.
Taking action immediately when you notice signs of mold damage in your Mississauga home is critical. Only appropriate actions are necessary. Otherwise, your efforts would not change anything. One of the advantages SERVPRO presents is sending trained Microbial Remediation Technicians who can identify the best course of action for your case.
Mitigating mold damage takes several steps, including:
- Mold testing
- Containment and demolition
- Sanitizing and deodorization
Although there are several types of mold, there is no need for strict testing to establish the exact strain affecting your house. The necessary testing is more about the location of the contamination. Our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians perform tests to establish mold in cavities such as wall spaces or subfloors. We also test for wetness levels and humidity. Cleaning mold to remove patches and stains is essential. Cleaning mold differs from cleaning other soils, especially since water aggravates the problem.
Our SERVPRO technicians use alternatives such as:
- Damp wiping with surfaces
- Wire brushing
- Blast cleaning with soda or dry ice
Demolishing some parts of the structure to reach hidden mold or remove heavily deteriorated materials is necessary in some cases. Such demolition must be procedural to prevent unnecessary damages or dangerous exposure. Our SERVPRO teams establish airtight containment around the areas we plan to demolish to protect those in the vicinity.
