The Correct Mold Damage Intervention Guarantees Convenience when Restoring Federal Way Properties
SERVPRO Packs out Items and Sets up Containment Barriers for Convenient Mold Removal
Mold can proliferate in areas of your home that you rarely visit, such as basements, attics, or even extra bedrooms. Such growth can be fueled by minor water leaks that go unnoticed. On discovering the mold damage, you may focus on prompt removal. However, it is also crucial to ensure the removal does not create additional problems.
Although structural deterioration may be your biggest concern after mold damage affects your Federal Way home, it is also essential to consider the impact the infestation and removal processes might have on the occupants. Mold exposure can cause health effects. SERVPRO takes several steps to ensure safety and convenience during the removal process.
Precautions are necessary during various processes, including:
- Mold inspection
- Mold removal
- Black mold damage repairs
When the mold develops in a secluded section of a property, it is possible to address it while the house is still occupied. However, before starting the process, it is crucial to check for hidden mold in the rest of the building. Our SERVPRO technicians use thermal cameras to check for hidden moisture or drill small exploratory holes on surfaces.
On verifying where the mold growth is restricted, our technicians set up containment barriers to separate it from the unaffected sections. A typical barrier is set up with 6-mil plastic sheets and spring-loaded metal rods for the support, thus sealing off entire rooms or small sections within a building.
Other protective measures that help safeguard people include:
- Setting up negative air pressure machines
- HEPA vacuuming surfaces to remove mold residue
- Storing mold debris in zipped heavy-duty plastic bags
