SERVPRO Cleans Properties to Remove Residues and Manage Air Quality Among Other Things

After noticing mold contamination in your Seal Beach property, you need to take different steps, including cleaning to restore to the preloss conditions. It is easy to misunderstand the role cleaning plays in the process, leading to unsatisfactory results. 

Knowing the cleaning needed helps you address mold damage in your Seal Beach home property so that we can utilize the right resources. It also allows for better scheduling of the other remediation processes. When Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) from SERVPRO inspect your property, we establish contamination levels and, thus, what else needs to be done apart from cleaning contaminated areas. 

Cleaning Moldy Surfaces Takes Care of:

  • Mold colony masses
  • Settled spores
  • Dust and other light residues

Proper planning is essential to guarantee the right outcome because of the wide variety of residues to remove from the contaminated areas. If the contamination is light, removing settled spores and light mold colonies is the main task. Cleaning procedures like HEPA vacuuming surfaces are sufficient. In severe contamination, there is a need to remove any heavily infested porous materials. 

The approach used when cleaning matters. Unlike regular soils, mold requires unique methods for maximum effectiveness in removing it from the property in all its forms.

Helpful Cleaning Techniques Include:

  • Cleaning in the direction of airflow
  • Cleaning surfaces starting from the top towards the bottom
  • Scheduling different cleaning rounds with a pause between each session to allow particles to settle

Taking such deliberate steps helps remove all mold residues from the structure. SERVPRO helps improve the outcome by providing the necessary resources to address any challenges. For instance, negative air machines help establish one direction of airflow. On the other hand, air filtration devices remove particulate matter from the air, reducing the number of cleaning rounds needed. We also have dehumidifiers with limited airflow that help dry contaminated areas without blowing residues all over the property.
