Proper Mold Damage Remediation Steps In Walton County
Proper Mold Damage Remediation Steps
Developing a fast action plan is essential when attending to mold damage to prevent the possibility of further damage to your contents and restore your property. The remediation process usually begins by learning about the moisture in the structure. It's important to know that the presence of moisture leads to mold growth and addressing the water problem should be the first step. We are going to look at some of the procedures we follow when attending to such issues in Walton County.
When our SERVPRO technicians are responding to mold damage in Walton County, we may document the situation through writing, taking videos or photos. With the help of such documentation, we are in a position to come up with a remediation plan which clearly outlines when we the work is to begin and end. At this particular point, we can determine whether the occupants of the building need to relocate temporarily.
The mold remediation procedures aim at cleaning up the contamination and making sure that the occupants are not exposed, since it may lead to health effects. When we are removing the mold growth, there are chances of disturbing the mold spores which may end up moving from the areas with the contamination to clean areas. To prevent such, our SERVPRO technicians put in place containment measures. Setting up a negative pressure, installing containment barriers, and sealing HVAC vents is part of containment.
When removing the mold contamination, our SERVPRO team takes typically away all porous materials with extensive mold contamination. We can then use HEPA vacuuming to remove the mold from dry and nonporous materials and surfaces. Damp wiping is also an option, and when using it as an option, we use a detergent that has anti-microbial properties. When cleaning surfaces, we usually start from the top to the bottom and generally towards the direction of airflow.
