How to Address Mold Damage Concerns as a Resident of Stockton
SERVPRO Technicians Understand BOTH How Mold Proliferates and How to Stop the Spread
The mold damage problem cannot develop within your property when conducive conditions for its growth do not exist. If you notice a musty smell in your building, then there are chances of an existing mold growth condition. We can check for visible mold in high moisture areas such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry areas, and basements. We understand that it can appear in many colors, as well as look sticky, slimy or fuzzy. If there is a dampness problem in your Stockton home, make use it is addressed as soon as possible.
Controlling the moisture problem is vital when addressing mold damage incidents in Stockton. For instance, if the source of moisture is a broken pipe, our SERVPRO technicians quickly correct the problem. At this point, we are ready to dry the wet items to prevent the spread and occurrence of mold. We only dry items that do not have any visible mold growth since some of the drying techniques can pressurize surfaces and enhance the spread of mold particles to clean areas.
Our SERVPRO technicians always avoid using air movers and other equipment that creates airflow when dealing with visible mold. In such situations, we prevent dispersing mold particles by introducing more controlled conditions. For instance, the introduction of negative pressure prevents the dispersion of the spores. Where possible, we do not employ cleaning techniques that require the use of water-based solutions. Also, we avoid the use of power washing when cleaning vulnerable items such as sheetrock and wallboard since they may get wet.
During mold removal, both dead and live mold spores can settle on exposed surfaces, and there is a need to remove them and minimize the chance of dispersal. Our SERVPRO technicians perform HEPA vacuuming to address such concerns. We also place mold contaminated items in doubled 6mm trash bags ready for disposal.
