What Can Help Simplify Mold Remediation in Lake Nona Properties?

10/22/2021 (Permalink)

Do you know how to prevent mold from spreading? SERVPRO does!

SERVPRO Provides Highly Trained Teams to Manage Mold Remediation Processes

Once mold develops in your property, you may have difficulty managing it by not taking appropriate action. The correct remediation approach should help restore preloss conditions in your Lake Nona property. It should also help keep costs manageable.

Mold remediation in Lake Nona properties requires several steps. Correctly handling each step is essential, so access to the right skills and equipment is mandatory. The restoration teams from SERVPRO include IICRC-certified microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) who are fully skilled in handling the process.

Everyday actions required as part of the remediation include:

  • Removing visible mold debris
  • Preventing the spread of mold or its residues
  • Refinishing the affected areas

One of the signs of a mold infestation is the patches or stains on wall and ceiling surfaces. The changes develop from the deterioration of materials or surface finishes and the accumulation of hyphae clusters. Removing all the masses of moldy materials is essential to restore preloss conditions.

Your attempts to address a mold problem might end up spreading it to other initially unaffected areas of your property. The spread might involve the fine residues released after disturbing moldy surfaces. Alternatively, new growth might develop if appropriate conditions are created in such areas. Our SERVPRO teams establish containment measures to prevent such spread along with an application of a fungicide.

Mold containment is more than one process since it involves:

  • Setting up containment barriers
  • Vacuuming all moldy residues from surfaces
  • Moisture management, especially when cleaning the affected areas

The best containment barriers are airtight to prevent the spread of microscopic mold residues. Our SERVPRO technicians use 6-mil plastic sheets and spring-loaded metal bars to create such barriers, especially during demolition to remove unsalvageable materials. Another good step is the establishment of negative air pressure within the contained area.

SERVPRO of South Orange County helps refinish the restored areas by painting or reinstalling materials, thus resolving a mold problem, “Like it never even happened.” Call us at (407) 226-2621.
