SERVPRO Prioritizes Safety When Handling Moldy Materials in Affected Properties

When mold contaminates your property, one of the challenging tasks you might face is removing the moldy debris that accumulates from mold colonies and the deterioration of materials. The mold damage remediation necessary to restore preloss conditions in your property requires competency in various fields, including building services, moisture management, and management of microbial processes.

One of the best ways to execute mold damage remediation in your Clearwater home is by consulting a professional since you can access all the necessary resources needed at once. SERVPRO has considerable experience handling different levels of mold contamination, so we are best equipped to manage any amount of debris.

The most crucial aspects of handling moldy residues include:

  • Safety of the structure during the clearing of debris
  • Limiting exposure to the people involved
  • Safe disposal of moldy materials

Mold causes unsalvageable damage to porous organic materials. Therefore, tearing them down and removing them from the structure is the best solution. Such removal takes both building skills and correct tools to execute. For example, it would be impractical to break up drywall with a sledgehammer. Our SERVPRO teams rely on better approaches, like using cutting tools and pry bars for neat and safer demolition.

Since mold debris is characterized by fine residues that can easily spread when disturbed, leading to greater exposure for the people within the property, containment is essential. Our SERVPRO technicians can use different approaches to ensure all debris is contained.

The four typical containment actions include:

  • Installing plastic sheeting as containment barriers
  • Setting up negative air pressure within the containment area
  • Establishing cleaning rooms for decontaminating people and equipment
  • Sealing HVAC vents to protect ducts
