Why SERVPRO? How Badly Can Mold Damage My Home?
An active infestation of mold spores can penetrate the wood, drywall, and even the carpets of your home in South Daytona. Expert mold removal by SERVPRO requires stopping active mold growth, removing most spores, and reducing the risk of future infestations.
Can’t SERVPRO Eliminate Mold in My Home?
Not completely. Mold spores are nearly as common as dust. Usually, they are dormant, which means they are not growing or a threat. In a South Daytona property mold spores can start germinating with only a few drops of water, developing further, then extending hyphae to search for more water and a source of food, which almost every type of building material in the structure.
Our technicians begin restoration by determining the extent of the growth. That includes finding any nearby water and removing it with cloths and sponges, using extraction wands for larger pools and puddles, halting growth.
Next, they remove the visible mold colonies from affected surfaces with dry or damp sponges. If the mold layers are very thick, technicians use hand-scrapers and an antimicrobial cleaner to loosen them. If the hyphae had time to penetrate the surface of wall framing, for example, technicians can use hand-sanders to scrape off the top layers to get to the mold. For hyphae deeper into the wood, we have an additional option of a soda-blasting machine to remove them.
After removal, technicians spray an antimicrobial agent over the affected surfaces to reduce the risk of returning mold. Once it dries, they check for water and active mold.
