Preventing Small Mold Damage In Los Angeles From Spreading Further

1/30/2018 (Permalink)

One of the first tasks we undertake in most mold damage restorations in Los Angeles is to sanitize the area and kill off any living spores.

Preventing Mold Damage

While all mold damage in Los Angeles has the potential to cause permanent and costly damage to your home, larger and more mature colonies typically pose a far more significant threat than younger ones. Calling SERVPRO helps to ensure that a fledgling infestation never gets the chance to bloom into a much larger problem. We institute a rigorous set of treatments, machines, and safeguards to protect your mold from present and future mold growth.

Sanitization
One of the first tasks we undertake in most mold damage restorations in Los Angeles is to sanitize the area and kill off any living spores. We stock an extensive array of tools for this purpose that allows us to sanitize infestations large and small in short order. For more extensive patches of growth, we use ultraviolet light generators to fry the fungus off without the use of chemicals or other cost-intensive options. For smaller spot colonies where large UV arrays would be inefficient, we can use chemicals and other sanitization options in limited amounts.

Air Filtration
While sanitization prevents a colony from producing additional spores or spreading across a single surface, it can still grow around the home unless existing spores are filtered from the air. We use advanced air filtration technology to catch mold spores of all common sizes and species, simultaneously improving air quality within your house and eliminating any additional risk of mold spreading out.

Preventative Measures
We can also help you to implement some preventative measures around your home to ensure that no further damage occurs in the near future. We offer mold-resistant paints and finishes that can help to protect many materials from mold growth on their surfaces. Also, we repair and improve any lagging water lines and systems in your home to reduce excess moisture in the area and stop further mold colonies from appearing.

SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park provides expert care for local homes afflicted with mold damage. Call us 24/7 at (323) 255-1000.
