How Our Specialized Training Can Restore Your Bainbridge Island Home After A Mold Damage Disaster
Why SERVPRO Relies On Advanced Training To Counter Mold Damage In Bainbridge Island
Mold problems are common especially when leaks go unnoticed for long. Such leaks are likely in areas close to the roofing or next to appliances such as dishwashers. Since mold problems are also stubborn, involving a professional in the mitigation process presents better chances of getting sustainable results. We rely on highly trained staff to help our Bainbridge Island clients in distress.
The first step in remediation of mold damage in Bainbridge Island is identifying what could have caused the infestation. Because of the higher amounts of precipitation in western Washington, there are many cases where homes are infested with mold after rainwater gains access to the house. Our SERVPRO technicians can fix small issues leading to leaks or involve a contractor if serious construction changes are necessary. After that, we can focus on cleaning the debris and residues from the mold colonies.
Different approaches can be used in removing mold colonies. Using those that lead to long term results or cause limited damage to underlying materials helps achieve the primary goal. Our SERVPRO technicians undertake different training courses in mold mitigation and understanding mold ensuring utilization of the best techniques. We can use mechanical abrasion such as wire brushing, or we can damp wipe the affected areas with cleaning agents. We also utilize advanced techniques such as soda blasting which removed mold debris without harming the underlying surface.
Mold eats into organic materials because they serve as a food source. Such materials might not be strong enough, so it is better to replace them instead of trying to clean them. Removal is also crucial if porous materials are involved because the hyphae grow deep into such materials. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on their training during the inspection of the affected areas to establish the best solution. If teardown is involved, we take measures such as creating exclusion zones using plastic sheets or using negative pressure machines to prevent the spread of spores and other mold debris.
