Mold Damage Remediation in Roseville
SERVPRO Technicians are Trained Using the Most Effective Mold Remediation Methods
Many renters and homeowners fear the word 'mold.' The imagination goes immediately to what some people call Black Mold and are worried that they will lose their homes and property. Excessive mold growth is a rare occurrence and normally seen only in structures abandoned for an extended period.
Mold damage in Roseville is a much smaller concern when dealt with by a professional restoration company. SERVPRO has decades of experience in finding, cleaning and removing mold from apartments, houses, and condos.
Mold is in the air of every structure in Placer County except for special, clean rooms such as surgical bays. In most cases, it is entirely harmless to people, animals, homes and other property. What triggers a mold growth is an increase in moisture which helps microscopic mold spores expand and begin to grow, looking for a food source.
The first step is an inspection. Our inspectors examine every visible surface for traces of mold and use air content meters to help determine the origin of the infestation. Each step is recorded to include taking digital photographs and samples.
Once our inspectors discover mold, they determine if it is toxic or non-toxic. They accomplish this by testing the air quality inside a home. If it tests as non-toxic, then residents can return to natural areas of the home as our technicians clean and remove the mold.
To begin removing the mold growth, we first isolate the affected area. Technicians secure plastic sheeting over all openings and set up an area for workers to remove cleaning suits to prevent spreading mold spores to other parts of the home. They also block all vents and seal off access to the HVAC system until the mold has been neutralized and removed.
While cleaning occurs, other technicians establish negative pressure in the affected area. Exhaust fans are placed at exit points such as windows to blow all spores loosened by the cleaning process out of the home.
Every surface in the affected area is wiped down and cleaned from ceilings to floors. If mold is on carpets or walls, then technicians determine if these items are salvageable or if must be disposed of outside the structure. We have an extensive inventory of anti-fungal and anti-microbial cleaners that are safely used on ducts, furniture, walls and other personal property.
