Mold Damage Cleanup in Your Daytona Beach Home
SERVPRO Can Provide Safe Mold Remediation to Your Property
Mold can be quite the nightmare to homeowners in Daytona Beach. It can cause health effects to you and your family and cause much damage to your home. Controlling your indoor climate, using dehumidifiers, and making sure your AC is the appropriate size for your house are just a few of the things you can do to help prevent mold growth.
When mold and mold damage still strike in your Daytona Beach home, it is imperative that you move quickly to take care of it. Mold can spread throughout your home quickly to other surfaces. It is not enough to just clean up the mold. The problem that caused it in the first place needs to be taken care of, and the affected area should be sanitized. SERVPRO can take care of all of this for you, as we have the knowledge and tools that are needed.
Whenever SERVPRO technicians work in contaminated environments, including mold, we wear personal protective equipment, which includes full-body suits with hoods, latex and rubber gloves, and eye protection such as goggles or full-face masks. We may also wear full or half-face respirators or even powered air-purifying respirators which supply air to a full-face mask. None of our staff begin working on a mold remediation project before they have the proper safety training and are comfortable with the information. Smaller infestations may require only minimal PPE during the remediation process.
The method used to clean mold depends on the kind of surface it is on. Nonporous materials can usually be wiped and cleaned, but porous materials with visible growth must many times be removed and discarded (an example being drywall.)
Many times, HEPA filtered vacuuming, and damp wiping can remove invisible mold spores and organisms which have settled, even when on porous materials. The structure and contents are then dried to stop any more growth. Dehumidifiers do not have much airflow and can be used during the containment and removal procedures.
At SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach/Port Orange, we take mold damage seriously and follow all necessary steps to clean up the mold thoroughly after fixing the moisture problem. We end with sanitizing the area in your home in Port Orange, Daytona Beach, or Harbor Oaks when you call us at (386) 788-0358.
