Let SERVPRO Rid Your Norristown Home Of Mold
Containment Benefits during Mold Damage Remediation in Norristown
Mold damage usually occurs in areas that have high humidity, and it is essential to know its first signs. The moment you notice a musty smell or some discoloration on the walls, you need to act quickly and prevent it from spreading and causing structural and health effects. We can inspect your Norristown property to determine the level of contamination and come up with appropriate remediation procedures.
Once our SERVPRO technicians have determined the degree of mold damage in your Norristown home, the next step is to isolate the contaminated contents and areas from the uncontaminated ones. The primary goal of containment is controlling the spread of the mold spores as we are repairing your property and protecting the occupants and our staff. As we design the containment systems, we must allow for an exit and entry area. With that, our technicians can remove their Personal Protective Equipment while limiting the risk of cross-contamination outside the site. Such areas are known as clean rooms.
Creating a negative air pressure with the site is part of the containment process. Our SERVPRO technicians achieve that by using HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air filtered negative air machines. These devices work by attracting dust and mold spores towards the filter. Together with the plastic sheeting that we set up, we limit the movement of spores when we are demolishing and cleaning the contaminated areas.
Where necessary, our SERVPRO technicians open up contaminated walls to get rid of the mold that is growing inside. We understand there is a possibility of cutting electrical wires as we are cutting the drywall. In such cases, we poke a hole into the area and locate the electrical wires. We perform such procedures once we have turned off the power from the mains. After removing the contamination, we clean the surfaces using disinfectants to deactivate the spores and reduce the chances of future mold growth.
