SERVPRO Relies on Comprehensive Approaches Beyond Moisture Management When Addressing Mold

When you notice mold contamination in your Woodbury property, there is a chance of current water leaks or past unresolved moisture accumulation. Therefore, you might consider drying the property as the ultimate solution to address the situation. However, mold remediation is a complex process that requires diverse restoration solutions. 

When planning for mold removal from your Woodbury home, it is crucial to note that moisture is the most significant contributor to mold contamination. It activates the spores found naturally in the environment but are dormant until conditions are favorable for growth. Drying property can halt development, but it does not resolve the other issues like staining, deterioration of materials, and the musty odors emitted by moldy residues. That is why SERVPRO looks for comprehensive ways to address all the problems.

Some of the other necessary actions for successful mold remediation include:

  • Removing deteriorated materials
  • Cleaning surfaces and contents
  • Deodorization to remove odors
  • Controlling microbial growth

Removing moldy materials from your property can require several procedures depending on what is affected. In case of contents such as furniture, move-outs can help relocate the items for cleaning elsewhere or for disposal. Building skills are required to disengage the materials from the structure for structural materials. Our IICRC trained SERVPRO technicians help set up appropriate containment when removing moldy materials to prevent residues from spreading and risky exposure.

Moldy residues can soil or even stain surfaces. Drying moisture cannot eliminate these soils. Our SERVPRO crew chiefs evaluate the type of soiling to determine the best cleaning method. 

Some cleaning approaches that remove moldy residues include:

  • Sanding
  • Damp wiping
  • Blast cleaning with soda ash or dry ice

Finishing procedures are essential when addressing mold in your property. One helpful finishing step is deodorization which eliminates musty odors or unpleasant smells. Our technicians can mist deodorizers all over your property using ULV foggers.
