Maricopa's Mold Damage Technicians Talk About Removal Methods

A small water leak that you do not notice right away inside your Maricopa home can create an environment where fungi can form. Microbes can be found naturally both indoors and outdoors; therefore once moisture affects organic materials inside your house, these microbes can turn into larger structures that can cause extensive mold damage. It is unknown how many different species of fungi exist, but it is estimated that there are hundreds of thousands of various types. A fungus grows best in damp, warm and humid environments meaning that dark, confined places inside your home make good places for mold damage to occur once moisture is added to the scenario.
 
All kinds of fungal contamination can cause health effects, so it is a wise idea to call in a professional company like SERVPRO. It is important to know that having black mold damage in Maricopa is no different than suffering problems from any other type of fungi. Fungal contamination issues can be treated, and the chances of microbial growth in the future can be reduced, but we cannot ever promise total elimination. Since spores naturally exist in the air, it is impossible to eliminate every possibility that the contamination will return. However, with the use of industrially advanced techniques and equipment, we can remove the majority of the mold contamination in most situations.
 
Before we work towards removing mold from contaminated surfaces, our SERVPRO technicians set up plastic barriers to trap in any harmful particles created during the removal process. Once containment is established we attach an air scrubber to the chamber that creates negative air pressure inside the affected area. This causes any spores or other harmful particles that get released when we scrape or sand off the contamination to get pulled through a HEPA filter before being exhausted back into the environment.
 
When removing the hyphae structures from the contaminated surfaces, we sometimes use methods other than scraping or sanding for delicate materials. In some cases, we use soda blasters or dry ice pellet blasting methods to remove the contamination. If you ever notice any type of fungal contamination, call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 24/7.

SERVPRO - Stopping And Cleaning Out Mold Damage In Maricopa

Mold Remediation SERVPRO - Stopping And Cleaning Out Mold Damage In Maricopa SERVPRO has a varaity of tools and equipment like this air scrubber to remove mold damage from your home.

At the first sign of mold contact SERVPRO to remediate the damage

Although we are not in the middle of the desert, Maricopa is still not a city where residents think too much about mold. Most people consider a problem for areas that are hot and damp, not hot and dry. The facts are that inside any home mold can grow when it has enough moisture, food, and the right temperature.

That means to stop mold damage in Maricopa homes, SERVPRO restoration specialists have to find and remove the source of moisture. Mold spores can thrive in a range of 68 to 86 degrees, the range most homes try to maintain year-round. They also feed on nearly everything in a home, to include almost every building material except for iron, steel, and aluminum.

Most mold growths in our area begin with a simple leak. Often, there is a loose pipe connection or a rusting faucet in a wall or a laundry room that is the culprit. Even just a small amount of water can start the problem if enough spores become wet enough to expand and start to grow over the nearest surface, searching for food and more moisture to further grow the colony.

After arriving at each home, SERVPRO technicians perform a visual inspection and use air content meters to find the highest concentration of spores and trace that to its source. Once they find it, our teams have two tasks: stop the leak and clean out the mold.

If the problem is a minor one, like a loose connection or hose on a washing machine, our technicians can fix that. If it is a major issue, such as an entire section of pipe rusting out, the team leader always recommends bringing in a plumber or general contractor to make the repairs.

Once they stop the source of moisture, our specialists spray the affected property with an anti-bacterial agent. It kills any active spores, and then the team members wipe down every surface or use a vacuum with a specially designed HEPA filter to capture them. If the mold had time to grow into a surface like wood paneling, the team carefully removes it for disposal. They dispose of all mold outside the home and according to Arizona state requirements.

Removing the effects of mold in any home is not easy, but SERVPRO of Casa Grande works diligently to make it as easy on a homeowner as possible. If you have or suspect this problem is in your home, call us today at (520) 421-1894 to schedule a visit and inspection. We are here for you.
