Steps SERVPRO Takes to Improve Fort Lee Mold Remediation

You can think of mold growth in many ways, but whichever way you look at it, there is an aspect of inconvenience. Appropriate remediation steps help limit mold damage inconveniences, restoring your Fort Lee property to its preloss state.

You may know some issues requiring remediation after mold damage at your Fort Lee home, while others may surprise you. Changes such as dark spots as the contamination consumes materials are common. However, other insidious issues exist, such as degraded indoor air quality. SERVPRO helps probe and resolve all problems developing on your property.

Interventions necessary for moldy properties

  • Identifying all moldy and vulnerable areas
  • Using potent cleaning methods to remove mold colonies 
  • Improve mold resistance in materials 
  • Comprehensively addressing moisture issues

Mold contamination readily spreads where organic food sources and moisture are sufficient. The fungus particularly ravages porous materials causing irreversible damage, so drywall panels, wallpaper, and wooden furniture incur significant damage. Identifying all moldy areas and hidden moisture are two critical remediation steps since it paves the way for other corrective measures.

Removing Mold from Surfaces

The masses of colonies growing on surfaces, spots, and discoloration need to go for the mold problem to be fully addressed. Cleaning requires appropriate methods that remove soils without fueling further proliferation. Our SERVPRO crews use different approaches to agitate surfaces, collect debris and manage musty odors. 

Helpful Cleaning Methods

  • Soda and dry ice blasting
  • Vacuuming
  • Damp wiping with antimicrobials

Exhaustively cleaning the moldy areas is only one part of the remediation. Taking steps to limit further proliferation is also essential. For example, our teams can help dry structural areas or contents to guarantee this. In addition, we use LGR or desiccant dehumidifiers since they are highly effective in minimizing the moisture levels in materials. Another step that may help limit further proliferation is painting surfaces, especially in exterior areas of your home, with mold-resistant paint, which creates a hostile environment for mold spores.
