No More Mistakes With Mold Damage Remediation in Wilmington
Why SERVPRO Wilmington Provides Effective Professional Mold Damage Remediation
When you first notice signs of a mold infestation in Wilmington, chances are good some self-help might be your first choice. Unfortunately, mold often does not respond as expected to conventional cleaning methods because is it not typical household soiling. Introducing the moisture mold needs to grow during cleaning can make a mold problem even worse. Our mold remediation managers and technicians follow the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols, which is why we deliver successful outcomes.
Mold damage in your Wilmington home does not need to cause panic, even if you feel as though you tried everything and failed. When we follow the proper procedures, mold growth, and the damage it inflicts on structural components, abates.
The SERVPRO mold remediation team locates, contains, and removes the active mold colonies. Containment methods include plastic barriers sealing off the work area and often a negative pressure air scrubbing system to force and capture contaminants through HEPA filters before venting to the outdoors. Our technicians wear personal protective gear to prevent tracking moldy residues into unaffected areas.
On solid surfaces, SERVPRO employees use mechanical means to remove the mold, including brushes and scrapers. Soda blasting is a gentle but effective way to rid some porous building materials of mold damage. We vacuum and wipe up debris in the workspace, bagging them for hazardous waste disposal following local regulations. The now-cleared area receives treatment with an EPA-registered antimicrobial agent. Coatings containing fungicides can prepare affected surfaces for further restoration efforts while at the same time inhibiting mold regrowth.
We follow up by recommending you eliminate the source of moisture that fueled the microbial growth initially and helping with repairs. Mold spores are always in the environment, both indoors and out. They cause little harm when dry, but if water is available for as few as 24 to 48 hours, the moisture can cause spores to begin multiplying, damaging organic surfaces in your home and creating an airborne irritant to susceptible individuals allergic to mold or its toxins.
