Mold infestation? Call SERVPRO

Why should you hire SERVPRO? Before reading this blog, review the Texas Mold Assessment and Remediation Rules (TMARR) to get a good idea of what is required of a professional mold remediation firm, and what the mold removal process entails. Thereafter, read below why SERVPRO has been a one-stop solution for property owners seeking a professional and reliable mold removal team. 

1. Swift response

When property owners are faced with mold growth, they can call SERVPRO for instant emergency response. Before arriving at the scene, a representative will ask important questions to help determine the equipment, personnel, and resources that the project may require. A swift response can arrest further damage and unnecessary costs.

2. Detailed inspection and assessment

SERVPRO’s highly qualified team carefully inspects the property for visible signs of mold using its advanced technology and equipment. A licensed mold consultant will need to be called to perform a detailed inspection and collect mold samples for analysis and a detailed document is created to appraise the property owner of the mold remediation plan. The team is methodical and transparent in its operations and ensures the property owner understands the costs and steps that are involved in completing the mold remediation process.

3. Foolproof containment protocol 

Before carrying out mold removal, the SERVPRO team will contain the area that has been infested with mold to avoid further spread. A total surface area of 25 contiguous square feet or more requires immediate containment protocol to be followed. Ideally, when the mold is first discovered by the occupants, the area should be immediately isolated and all fans and HVACS should be switched off to prevent the spores from spreading to other parts of the house.

With the help of advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers and negative air pressure, the SERVPRO team carries out the remediation process without the risk of the spores spreading to the unaffected area.

Moreover, the SERVPRO technicians employ the use of specialized filtration equipment such as air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to capture and halt the spread of the invisible mold spores floating in the air during the remediation.

  1. Careful and efficient mold removal

The initial mold analysis helps determine the extent of mold growth as well as the types of surface infested. This helps decide the types of disinfectants, biocides, and antimicrobial coatings registered by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that the team will use to remove mold colonies. In case of heavy mold growth, the team may need to remove and discard the materials like drywall and carpeting that are beyond rescue. The team not only removes the mold colonies but also ensures that there is no recurrence.

  1. Cleaning and odor removal

The IICRC-certified technicians are equipped in cleaning every type of material from furniture, decorative items, and curtains to clothing affected by mold. But mold often leaves an unpleasant musty smell. 

The technicians will not only remove the mold but eliminate all evidence of it ever impacting the area. The odor removal and deodorization team uses several odor removal products capable of penetrating surfaces to neutralize an unpleasant odor thoroughly.

  1. Miscellaneous services

A mold-infested structure such as a drywall need not be replaced completely. The SERVPRO building team will repair the damaged part of the structure. If there is a wall that needs a fresh coat of paint, the team will do it. Does a new carpet need to be installed to replace the old discarded one? SERVPRO will take care of it. From small to major repairs, SERVPRO is a one-stop solution for all mold removal and repair services for homes and businesses.
