Is Mold Remediation a Long-Term Solution?

2/16/2021 (Permalink)

If you notice signs of mold growing in your house or commercial property, you probably have a lot of questions about removal and prevention. SERVPRO, one of the top mold removal companies in the Aberdeen and Holmdel area, has the answers—and the solutions.

Questions to Consider About Your Mold Infestation

Many people notice the appearance of mold on surfaces like shower walls, ceilings, or floors. If this sounds familiar, you may wonder:

  • How widespread is the mold infestation?
  • Can mold cause health effects?
  • How costly is the mold removal process?
  • And perhaps most importantly, is mold remediation a long-term solution?

The truth is, once you see mold, there’s a good chance underlying or invisible growth is extending beyond what you see. When SERVPRO of Aberdeen/Holmdel performs mold remediation at your property, we help you understand the full scope of the problem, including the extent of damage and the procedures we’re likely to use in resolving it.

How Is Mold Removed?

The removal method depends on the infested surface. If the mold is infesting porous surfaces or materials like carpet, drywall, or fabric, we remove the material itself because the hyphae deeply penetrate into the material.

Non-porous materials like glass, metal, and plastics require various professional cleaning techniques, including:

  • HEPA vacuuming to remove loose fragments
  • Damp-wiping with cleaning agents that have anti-microbial properties to stop or limit microbial growth
  • Sanding and wire-brushing surfaces
  • Applying biocides to the surfaces once completed

Our expert technicians prevent the spread of mold residue that can take place during the removal process by taking precautionary steps, such as:

  • Running negative air machines in cleaning areas
  • Containing the mold materials in plastic bags as they await disposal

These important measures ensure the mold remediation is, in fact, a long-term solution.
