Mold Damage Remediation Procedures to Make Your Boulder Home to Feel Like Home Again

Assessing the mold damage problem goes past checking whether there is some growth in a corner or on the walls of your home. Molds have a tendency of growing behind surfaces, which means it can be challenging to discover the problem during its initial stages. So, any time you notice musty odors and colored spots on the walls, you need to act immediately. We can inspect your Boulder home to determine the moisture source and do the necessary repair. Without stopping the moisture source, the mold problem is likely to reappear.
 
Most mold damage incidents in Boulder that we attend to have many similarities; though it does not mean similar remediation processes can address the problem. For instance, the problem can only affect a small section of the building such as a storage room with a leaking roof. We have to be careful when correcting the problem to avoid spreading the spores to other areas within the building. As an example, if airflow is introduced to uncontained mold spores, there is a danger of dispersing them to other locations – which underscores the importance of containment.
 
Since the spores are so light, a slight disturbance may force them to move from one area to the other. By using a 6 mil polypropylene, we can cover the door and windows and the spaces that are around them. Putting the contaminated room under negative air pressure relative to the surrounding areas can also limit the movement of spores. Our SERVPRO technicians understand that molds can cause health effect and put on the correct Personal Protective Equipment.
 
While it is possible to clean hard or nonporous surfaces with the mold contamination, we have to remove and discard porous materials such as drywall, insulation, and fabrics. As we agitate surfaces to remove the mold, some of it can settle on surfaces, and we have to perform HEPA vacuuming to remove the settling dust that has mold spores. Some of the methods we use to clean surfaces include wire brushing, damp wiping, and sanding. We wipe areas using disinfectants to deactivate the mold and prevent future reoccurrences.
 
At SERVPRO of Lafayette / Louisville, we have the equipment and skills to remove the mold contamination and offer cleaning services that meet commercial and residential needs. Call us at (303) 604-6607 to allow our highly trained technicians to return your property to its preloss state.
