Four Common Mold Remediation Tactics for Orlando Homes

3/23/2022 (Permalink)

Mold remediation is best left to professionals like SERVPRO. We make your Orlando home clean and safe.

Professional Mold Remediation Options Work Best for Damaged Orlando Homes

Mold can be among the more challenging damaging effects that your property experiences in its lifetime. While not all homes and businesses develop mold threats, some areas are impacted regularly by moist conditions that facilitate infestation. Our experienced professionals can respond quickly with remediation strategies that overcome threatening conditions and prevent further damage with processes such as:

  • Moisture removal
  • Content cleaning
  • Mold remediation
  • Repairs

Surface Cleaning Treatments

Beginning mold remediation in Orlando homes focuses on what can be done quickly to overcome developing infestations and prevent irreparable harm to hosting materials. Ideally, surface cleaning is chosen first because it is less invasive and destructive, introducing powerful antimicrobial products to affected surfaces that kill mold organisms on contact. 

Power / Hand-Sanding

Sanding is a measure of removing mold growth that only focuses on what is just beyond the surface layer. Using both hand sanding techniques and power tools, we can more effectively influence organisms trapped beyond the visible surface layer. This measurement is typically used with semi-porous materials like wood.

Media Blasting or Abrasive Cleaning

Among the more aggressive approaches that our professionals can take to remove active mold colonies from the property include media blasting. Along with efforts like sponge pressure cleaning, various media is blasted into the material substrate to eliminate mold organisms. The process could involve pressurized air or water, but water is more rarely used to prevent additional conditions for facilitating mold growth.

Controlled Demolition

While it is used as one of the final resorts for mold remediation, controlled demolition is a universally effective solution for removing active colonies. Discarding hosting elements is a certain method to eliminate mold concerns for the property. Because we have a contractor license, we can complete this demolition work as well as needed repairs and build back services required after mold exposure.

Mold is a threat to any home or business and should be resolved fast. Our SERVPRO of South Orange County team can help when you call (407) 226-2621.
