SERVPRO Considers Long-term Results When Mitigating Mold Damage in Affected Stockton Homes

We know how much of a nuisance mold development in your Stockton property can be because apart from posing some health risks, such growth is also an eyesore. You might be tempted to strip away every item or material covered in the dark mold spots, but such drastic action might not fix the issue – apart from being costly.

Involving a professional in the restoration of mold damage in your Stockton property ensures that every step necessary to remove and prevent mold growth from recurring is taken. When our SERVPRO team visits your home, we check all areas at risk of mold development rather than concentrating only on the affected areas. The main driving force behind such infestations is the presence of moisture. We use various equipment, including moisture meters, thermo-hygrometers, and thermal cameras, to check for moisture levels in materials, the air, and wetness in concealed areas. Such checks help establish if other areas are at risk of sprouting mold.

Following proper procedures helps ensure efficient removal of all traces of mold colonies. Our IICRC certified AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians, understands various traits of fungus and therefore takes appropriate action. For example, we expect to find loose debris and dust containing spores, which readily spread when disturbed. Steps such as vacuuming areas before starting other cleaning procedures help remove loose debris. We also establish engineering controls such as sealing off doorways and other openings with 6-mil plastic sheets.

Our SERVPRO team cleans different surfaces vigorously to remove mold colonies. Procedures such as wire brushing help clean areas with massive deposits. We usually combine the physical aspect of cleaning with chemical actions such as the use of disinfectants to destroy the microbes through physical contact and antimicrobial agents, which inhibit growth. We also have Sporicides that control fungal and bacterial spores. If the growth affects porous materials, we remove the affected materials entirely to guarantee the removal of all traces of mold.

Once mold takes root in your property, it can keep recurring. Call SERVPRO of Stockton at (209) 477-3090 to help take proper control procedures.
