Seal Beach Bathroom Needs Professional Mold Remediation by SERVPRO

The need for bathroom mold removal in this Seal Beach home hid from view for a long time, until one day, the homeowner was looking in her vanity and found a large amount of mold colony growth. She immediately contacted SERVPRO to handle the mold inspections, remediations, and removal in her Seal Beach home.  

Mold Inspection in the Seal Beach Bathroom by SERVPRO 

The trained and certified techs from SERVPRO have extensive experience handling all types of mold infestations, including black mold, which can cause health effects. SERVPRO technicians found that the mold had spread throughout the bathroom, including the drywall behind the Seal Beach property's vanity, before finally protruding through the vanity where the homeowner noticed it. Mold requires moisture to sustain the colonies. SERVPRO technicians used their detection equipment to locate elevated areas of moisture within the wall cavities to determine mold's probable presence. Once suspected, SERVPRO technicians take small core samples to confirm suspicions about the need for bathroom mold removal in the Seal Beach home.

First Steps in Mold Remediation by SERVPRO in Seal Beach Bathroom 

SERVPRO techs bagged the vanity for inspection and cleaning outside the mold removal work site. The drywall that the technicians could not readily clean required a controlled demo with a small portion cut and removed for disposal.

Air Quality Protection in the Seal Beach Bathroom During Mold Remediation by SERVPRO

During the mold removal process, SERVPRO IICRC certified technicians protected areas outside the Seal Beach bathroom by placing heavy gauge plastic sheeting over the doorways and vents to stop mold spores that became airborne from traveling outside the bathroom. Air scrubbers are essential pieces of mold remediation equipment as they capture airborne mold spores that can get released during the removal of the colonies throughout the Seal Beach bathroom. The air movers deployed by SERVPRO after removing the building materials during the mold removal process emit high-velocity warm air that works to force out embedded moisture and dry the mold infestation. As seen in the After Photo, SERVPRO techs removed the ruined drywall and flooring. Then the techs set up a drying configuration to ensure that the air moisture levels were reduced to a level unsustainable for continued mold growth in the Seal Beach bathroom.

Once dry, SERVPRO technicians perform careful abatement on the Seal Beach bathroom areas with black mold and other types. SERVPRO techs use various removal methods, including manual scraping and using hand vacuums with HEPA filtration to pick up the dried matter. In cases where the mold residues are stuck on to wood beams and framework, soda blasting is a good option for mold removal in Seal Beach properties without harming any surfaces.

As the mold remediation job progresses to the final phase, SERVPRO techs prepare the Seal Beach bathroom for the necessary repairs to the drywall and the flooring to install new building materials. The use of antimicrobial cleaning agents and sealants on mold removal areas ensures no return of the problem to the Seal Beach bathroom.
