Some Tips to Help Your Fayetteville Home Recover From a Mold Infestation
Crucial Steps for Effective Mold Remediation in Fayetteville
When mold affects your property, there is a need to take remediation steps immediately. Mold is said to cause health effects. It also leads to physical deterioration of the property, which can diminish its value. Establishing the source and drying off excess moisture, removing mold debris or porous materials it infests, and deodorizing the property, are some of the necessary remediation processes. We offer professional remediation services in Fayetteville to help restore your property to its preloss state.
Mold colonies form debris on the affected areas, so cleanup is part of mold remediation in Fayetteville. Debris removal might involve different steps depending on the level of infestation. Our SERVPRO technicians use vacuums with HEPA filters to remove loose debris from surfaces. We also wire brush or use other abrasive procedures to remove debris adhering to the surfaces. Alternatively, we damp-wipe the affected areas with professional cleaning agents.
It is possible to damage the materials infested by mold during the cleanup process especially if using mechanical abrasion or removing mold debris chemically. Such damages drive the costs of remediation up because of the need to refinish or even replace the ruined materials. Our SERVPRO technicians can help you avoid unnecessary damages by using specialized methods such as soda blasting to remove mold debris. In this process, we use sodium bicarbonate blasted at speeds exceeding 600 miles per hour over the infested areas. The process removes debris and kills spores without damaging the underlying materials.
All cases of mold infestation have an underlying moisture issue. Remediation processes can only be successful after dealing with the moisture. It is also essential to remove the moisture fast because mold growth is also fast. For example, if a property floods, growth can start within 24 to 48 hours. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on advanced water extraction and drying equipment. We also fast-track the process further by creating small drying chambers using 6-mil polyethylene.
Mold issues can recur if the remediation process fails. Call SERVPRO of Fayetteville/Springdale to help clean up your infested property. You can reach us at (479) 419-5544 any time.
