Mold Remediation Methods Used By SERVPRO To Keep Mold Damage From Spreading Any case of mold damage requires some amount of sanitizing to get rid of the smallest spores and patches of mold on an object.

Techniques Used by SERVPRO To Remediate Mold

Every case of mold damage is different, but in most of them, the potential for further damage to the home or its residents can be relatively high if not properly treated. In these cases, we employ a number of strategies to stop the spread of damage and keep residents safe while the mold is being remediated. Here are some of the methods our technicians may employ in your home to stop the spread of mold.

Mold Isolation and Containment
First and foremost when dealing with most cases of mold damage in Georgetown is quarantine and containment. We typically seal off an area or the specific spot of mold growth to prevent its spores from becoming airborne and reaching other parts of the home. This also helps to contain compounds released by some types of mold which may cause ill health effects. Within this isolated area, our technicians can do their work, protected by specialized equipment and clothing.

Sanitizing Widely and Thoroughly
Any case of mold damage requires some amount of sanitizing to get rid of the smallest spores and patches of mold on an object. We're very thorough in this process, sanitizing all at-risk objects, surfaces, and parts of the home with UV rays or other sanitizing machines. Note that you should allow us to clean and sanitize objects with mold damage, as without the proper experience and equipment, this may prove hazardous to you.

Air Filtration
We use industrial-strength air filters to remove mold spores and contaminants from the air, preventing their spread across the home after the damaged region itself has been cleaned up. This process also helps to remove the musty and foul odors often associated with mold growth and get your home back into a more livable state.
