The Mold Damage Restoration Process

Mold damage restoration is a job for the experts. The damage can quickly spread to the uncontaminated area and mold can cause health effects as well. Restoration experts have the necessary safety equipment, training, and technical know-how to remedy the situation.

The remediation process for mold damage restoration to your Los Angeles home can be time-consuming. It can help if you know what to expect when the SERVPRO technicians arrive at your premises. Here is an overview of the remediation process that can help you prepare.

Establishing Containment
One of the first steps in mold damage remediation process is establishing a containment zone. The spores can become airborne during the cleaning process and can find their way to the uncontaminated parts of your home if the area is not properly sealed off. SERVPRO Professionals can install plastic sheets to create a containment zone before they begin cleaning. Negative air pressure is often used as well to keep the spores from going out of the containment zone. The professionals can also seal off your HVAC vents and can also establish areas for storage of equipment.

Removing The Contamination  
Once the damage is contained, the next step is to eliminate the contamination itself. The restorability of an item is determined by the extent of contamination and the type of surface. If the surface is porous and it is impossible to clean the damage within the pores, the item often needs to be eliminated. Drywall, fabric, and upholstery can be a few examples of porous surfaces that might need elimination. The non-porous and semi-porous surfaces are cleaned using a detergent solution and HEPA vacuuming. SERVPRO professionals can use a variety of cleaning agents to eliminate the mold as entirely as possible.

Cleaning The Settled Spores
It is also crucial to clean the settled spores once the cleaning has been finished. The airborne spores can quickly settle in favorable areas if not eliminated and start the damage again. SERVPRO professionals use HEPA filtration to eliminate these settled spores. The process is often repeated multiple times to ensure that there is the as complete elimination of the settled spores as possible.
