Why SERVPRO Is an Excellent Choice for Mold Damage Remediation in Stockton

When mold growth enters the picture in your Stockton house, you might have no idea where to turn. The presence of mold in your dwelling can invoke fear of health complications and become embarrassing, especially if you attempt to manage it on your own yet fail in the effort. Mold smells unpleasant, and the staining it leaves on surfaces for all to see is a constant reminder that organisms are growing in the place you and your family call home. Our ability to remediate mold infestation following industry best practices is why we are highly rated by satisfied customers.

Change Your Mindset About Mold

One thing about mold damage Stockton residents need to grasp is that it is impossible to claim truthfully that the fungal organisms and their spores can ever be eliminated from your home. Mold spores are everywhere. Molds are critical to the environment; without the 100,000 plus species breaking down organic waste, we would be overwhelmed with debris. Molds inside attack organic building materials, however, one reason why we follow research-based methodologies to abate unwanted growth. Specific susceptible individuals react adversely to mold spores and residues, another reason why reliable mold remediation is the service we are proud to offer.

A Four-Step Process to Mold Management

When we assess and plan for mold remediation, we adhere to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol. The science behind the procedure is why SERVPRO follows the process. It has four primary steps:

Contain the Mold

Because mold spores and residues are light and able to drift on air currents, it is crucial to keep these particulates in a secure space while we work to remove the microbial infestation. We use 16-mil polyethylene sheeting to close off the mold-containing area, employing air scrubbing technology to ensure a tight seal.

Remove the Mold

Although we do use antimicrobials at other times in the process, it is essential to understand the mold organisms must be physically brushed or scraped off solid surfaces. The success of this approach is why SERVPRO chooses this direct method. If porous materials are affected, we have options like soda blasting that remove mold and chemically incapacitate its ability to grow even if bits remain deeply embedded.

Clean Up Residues

During the removal process, spores shed, and pieces of mold organisms fall. We are persistent in our efforts to vacuum and wet-wipe debris. Our use of HEPA-filtered vacuums and EPA-registered cleaners is why SERVPRO meets the mark in every remediation job.

Dry Out the Area

Mold does not grow in the absence of moisture. Remediation fails if leaks continue or humidity remains high. Our dedication to eliminating moisture issues and the ability to address drying challenges is why SERVPRO is a full-service mold remediation company.

You need a company that ticks all the boxes when it comes to high-quality mold remediation services, why SERVPRO of Stockton fits the bill. Call us at (209) 477-3090 to set up a mold abatement evaluation.
