Mold Damage Remediation Options for Ponce Inlet Residents
There are high chances of disturbing mold spores during the mold damage remediation process. Since the exposure can lead to health effects, we always wear protective equipment and clothing. Some of the PPE personal protective equipment that we use when attending to such incidents in Ponce Inlet include gloves, goggles, a respirator or a dust filter mask, and a Tyvek suit. We look at how severe the mold problem is before selecting suitable personal protective equipment.
Disrupting the spores during mold damage remediation may make them spread to other parts of your Ponce Inlet property. Our SERVPRO technicians employ containment measures to limit the movement of the mold spores. For instance, we use a plastic sheeting together with painters tape to seal off openings such as vents and doorways. It is also advisable to minimize dust particles since the spores can stick to dust and then quickly spread around the structure.
Introducing negative pressure at the site can also act as a containment measure. We achieve this by running an exhaust fan or air scrubber with a HEPA filtration system that is blowing out air via a duct to the exterior. When that happens, the stirred up mold spores in the room end up outside. Also, we always switch off the building's air conditioning systems before the cleaning process starts. To reduce dust, we may moisten any dry mold growth. At this point, we can use a cleaning agent to remove the contamination from hard surfaces. Why SERVPRO? We can also utilize a soda blaster to lightly remove mold from untreated wood like found in attics and crawl space in this southern climate.
After removing the contamination from the surface, we have to clean them using a disinfectant to reduce chances of the problem returning after the remediation. Usually, spores remain on surfaces even after the cleaning is complete, so, the disinfectant plays a deactivating role. While we can clean and reuse non-porous materials such as hard plastic, metal, and glass, in most cases, our SERVPRO technicians discard porous items such as carpets, books, and drywall if heavily infested.
