Why SERVPRO Requests Move-Outs for Mold Damage in Stockton
Mold Remediation by the professional at SERVPRO may require move-out
One of the most challenging aspects of mold damage for many Stockton homeowners is often the prospect of a move-out. While we try to accommodate you as best we can, SERVPRO technicians and inspectors may sometimes mandate and assist with a temporary relocation of any residents to a hotel or second home. Safety is our primary concern when making this decision, but other considerations also factor into any recommendations we may offer on the matter. Read on for more information on why we might request a move-out while taking care of the mold.
The most crucial factor in our decision to recommend a move-out for mold damage in Stockton is always safety. Many types of mold can cause health effects throughout the home, and more massive infestations can cause far more severe problems than smaller colonies. If our technicians would not enter the area without safety gear on, they do not expect you to, either. Most circumstances necessitating a temporary move-out require us to use full-body protective suits and other airtight safety equipment while we work in the home. A temporary relocation helps to ensure the health and safety of everyone inside until our tests show both surfaces and the air to be free of contaminants and biohazards.
Our Work Environment
The rest of our decision-making factors usually center around how our technicians can do their jobs with minimal interference. If the infestation has spread around the home and we expect to corner off most of the livable areas, a move-out may be necessary out of accessibility concerns even if there are no safety concerns. However, we take every step we can to keep you in your home if possible, including limiting our work to a section or set of rooms if possible. Only rarely does SERVPRO recommend a move-out without safety codes requiring it.
