Get Your Basics Right When Performing Mold Remediation In Dallas
To understand how mold damage remediation works, you first have to understand the basics of mold. Mold spores exist almost everywhere whether indoors or outdoors, and that means it is not possible to entirely remove them from your property. For the spores to grow and form mold colonies, they need moisture and less than 48 hours. Before we employ our remediation processes in Dallas, we first address the sources of moisture.
Different mold damage incidents in Dallas are unique, and that calls for specialized solutions from the part of our SERVPRO technicians. The moment our experts arrive at your property, we ask questions and perform a site inspection which enables us to choose the right tools and procedures for the job. During the examination, we look out for visible mold as well as hidden sources of water. For instance, by using water meters and sensors, we are in a position to detect the presence of moisture.
Since during the cleanup procedures there is a possibility of disturbing the microscopic spores and spreading them to clean areas, there is a need to do mold containment. We can set up physical barriers such as plastic sheeting to act containment barriers. Establishing a negative pressure can also prevent the movement of the spores. At this step, we turn off all fans as well as cooling and heating systems. With this containment measures in place, our SERVPRO technicians can capture the mold using specialized tools and processes such as HEPA vacuums and air scrubbers.
If we notice that some porous materials such as carpets and drywall have the mold infestation, removing and disposing of them is necessary. It is also the role of our SERVPRO technicians to clean your contents using antimicrobial treatments which apart from eliminating the mold help to lower the chances of future mold growth. Chances of having unpleasant odors after a mold event are high, by using thermal foggers we can perform deodorization and neutralize those smells.
