Mold Remediation Steps Necessary in Jacksonville Homes

Mold discovery can be scary since it is not something you can wish away - the longer you delay, the more it becomes entrenched. Notifying SERVPRO about the changes you have noticed is a practical strategy since we can complete mold removal procedures and address any uncertainties you face. 

Mold removal outcomes in Jacksonville depend on how you organize the response. If possible, strive for a speedy conclusion since staying in a moldy house is inconvenient. Your actions can also help halt the fungus from spreading beyond the initially affected areas. SERVPRO can ensure you get results faster by addressing the challenges that inhibit removal.

Issues That Negatively Impact Mold Removal

  • Fear, especially from alarmist information about mold
  • Dangerous exposure to moldy materials
  • Focusing only on surface contamination

The readily available information about mold can scare you into inaction or lead to mistakes when handling the contamination. For example, you may be too afraid of making any contact because of the implied effects of such action. You might also hastily clean stains and spots from surfaces using detergents and thus introduce new moisture into the area, worsening the problem. 

How Professional Mold Removal Works

Involving a professional when handling mold cleanup ensures a procedural exercise that addresses the contamination and protects everyone involved. Distinct processes may be necessary depending on whether the contamination affects porous or non-porous surfaces and the extent of the contamination. 

Common Processes

  • Establishing containment using plastic sheets
  • Removing colonies and other debris
  • Cleaning settled spores and dust
  • Drying wet materials

Removing colonies and moldy debris requires surface agitation or controlled demolition to strip unwanted materials. Our IICRC trained SERVPRO crews avail the necessary equipment, including vacuums, drilling, and cutting tools, to facilitate the removal conveniently.
