Dealing With Mold Damage

A quality mold remediation specialist understands how dangerous mold contamination can get. Therefore, they use all of the safety and precautionary measures necessary to protect everyone on your property from exposure and even help you prevent issues like this from developing again in the future.

Even a small amount of mold damage found in your St. Petersburg area home can present you with a variety of possible health issues. While your restoration technician is far from a medical professional, they do understand the risks involved and take the proper steps to contain the contaminated areas of your home. SERVPRO technicians follow specific health and safety regulations and wear the proper personal protective equipment regardless of the extent of mold contamination found on the job. We work hard to ensure the proper safety of everyone throughout the entire process. Our technicians also use full-body suits, chemical resistant gloves, and eye protection if necessary.

For contaminated areas located in small, confined spaces, SERVPRO technicians often use an N95 or greater filter type installed in a respirator to avoid contamination, while half-mask respirators offer sufficient protection in larger contaminated areas. However, full-face respirators used with HEPA filters and powered by air purification machines offer greater protection for extensive contaminations.

SERVPRO technicians avoid mentioning mold until mold contamination becomes certain. We check for strong musty odors in areas where customers may have had previous water damage or have an ongoing water intrusion problem and help determine the length of exposure. If there is evidence of mold, we also check the HVAC system and surrounding areas to get a sense of the amount of contamination involved. We communicate all findings to you and your insurance company, make recommendations on how to proceed and begin our mold damage remediation process immediately, once approved. Our technicians use quality containment and control procedures to limit exposure to the smallest area possible.

Using hygrometers and moisture detectors to locate and repair the source of moisture causing the problem, we remove any remaining water using the proper water extraction equipment and dispose of any saturated materials found in your home. We also use dehumidifiers and air moving equipment to dry the affected areas as quickly as possible while applying cleaning, deodorization, and repair methods necessary to return your property to a quality pre-mold damage condition.
