What Remediation Technicians Can Do For Mold Damage In West Palm Beach

Mold Remediation Technician

The job of a mold damage remediation specialist is subject to more than a few mysteries. What is the purpose of these experts? Do they work alone? How effective are their services? Is it worth calling one out to help you with the mold problem in your home? Fortunately, the answers to all of these inquiries are very simple.

At SERVPRO, our remediation technicians are highly experienced. They have access to state of the art drying tools and powerful cleaning agents, but they are also armed with knowledge. They know that neutralizing mold damage in West Palm Beach depends on all kinds of external factors. So, they are always honest with customers about the true chance of success. As mold remediation can seem very complex to homeowners, SERVPRO believes that educating customers should be a key objective.

What Our Mold Technicians Do
The critical thing to remember is that mold remediation services are not the most senior experts. In fact, we work closely with Indoor Environmental Specialists and Indoor Air Quality Professionals. They can give us accurate, scientific information on the type of mold present in a property.

Then, it is our job to work out how best to neutralize the spread and stop it causing damage to the structural components of the house. So, we shape our approaches according to the advice of certified microbiologists, industrial hygienists, and scientists. Before cleaning damaged materials, the technicians must deal with the moisture which is causing the mold.

What Mold Technicians Don’t Do
We cannot independently carry out mold tests. If you suspect that there is a problem developing in your home, the technicians will inspect it and take samples. For instance, if there is a moisture problem in a carpet or section of wall, they might remove a small piece. These samples are then sent to external experts for testing.

It can take a couple of days for samples to come back, but in the meantime, the SERVPRO team can work on a suitable drying formula for your home. They will determine how many dehumidifiers, fans, and air movers are required, based on how much water must be extracted every hour. Removing the water makes the environment more hostile for the mold spores.

As we always try to explain to our customers, mold is a complex thing. It can be effectively neutralized, but a return to wet conditions may bring it back. This is why it is crucial that you take good care of your home after the remediation process is complete. Fix leaks, seal holes in window frames, and maintain the health of roof tiles and pipework.

If you speculate that there is a mold issue developing in your home, it is best to get in touch with a remediation team as soon as possible. Mold eats away at organic materials, so delaying could put your property at risk. SERVPRO of West Palm Beach is a local company, and we can respond quickly. Call us 24/7 at (561) 795-5410.
