Orem Mold Damage Remediation Protocols

8/12/2018 (Permalink)

Our technicians find out what caused your mold damage, remediate and then treat the area to prevent any future growth.

Team SERVPRO Uses Many Techniques to Remove Mold Damage From Your Home

The damage done by mold in your Orem home needs attention quickly, but there is no need to become alarmed when you engage the services of a reputable remediation company. Scare tactics and unfounded promises from a mold removal company have no place in a professional mold abatement response. We follow local, state, and federal requirements and recommendations to ensure we deliver a successful outcome.
 
Mold damage inside your house in Orem relates to sources of moisture you might not even realize exist. Mold spores are a constant inside and out, but mold does not grow into colonies that cause damage until the spores absorb water from a spill or leak. Even high humidity in spaces like bathrooms and kitchens can provide enough moisture to fuel a mold outbreak. Mold infestations often hide near their source of water, including moving into areas between walls or above ceilings where they multiply undisturbed. Our mold remediation crews are familiar with the ways mold takes hold in a residence and use approved strategies to mitigate the damage and suggest ways to eliminate the moisture that starts the mold damage cycle.
 
Whether you first notice a musty smell or see a dark stain or feathery growth that signals a mold problem, calling SERVPRO for an evaluation and remediation plan is the best reaction. Managing a mold infestation on your own risks spreading the debris to unaffected areas of your home. Another consideration is the possibility that you or others in your house might exhibit signs of allergic reaction or sensitivity to the mold or its byproducts during remediation.
 
SERVPRO mold remediation follows the protocols developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The critical steps are containment, removal, and disinfection of the outbreak. We have the skills to build a containment barrier using heavy plastic sheeting, and often use an air scrubber system that employs negative pressure to keep the moldy debris from drifting to other areas during removal. Our employees wear personal protective equipment to prevent tracking mold spores into the rest of your home and to keep themselves safe during removal.
 
We scrape and wipe the mold off of contaminated surfaces, and use abrasive techniques like soda blasting to remove moldy infiltrate from even porous structures. SERVPRO then finishes the job with HEPA filtered vacuuming, and the application of EPA registered antimicrobials to inhibit future fungal growth.
 
SERVPRO of Provo is ready with the trained technicians, products, and equipment to remediate your mold damage issues. Call us at (801) 226-1363 to set up an assessment and treatment plan.
