How Our Mold Damage Experts Can Restore Your Davie Property
SERVPRO Tackles Mold Damage In Davie Rental Home
Mold is opportunistic and only requires moisture, food which can consist of most organic materials from drywall to books and optimum temperatures. In this area of Florida, the warm, moist air creates a perfect environment for mold growth, and homeowners have to be diligent to keep it at bay.
SERVPRO was called to perform mold remediation on a Davie rental property where the tenants had ignored a small leak in the attic area that had turned into a significant problem. The mold had spread from the area of the leak to the wood and possibly affecting the wood under the insulation. The landlord had the plumbing repaired; now he needed the mold handled.
Our technicians inspected the attic and found no other issues causing retention of moisture other than the previously leaking pipe. They contained the entryway to the attic to stop the spread of mold spores into the rest of the home. Once contained, they used a special vacuum to collect the insulation for possible reuse. The wood underneath had mild mold growth, and it was damp. Air movers and dehumidifiers were applied to the area to quickly dry the surfaces and make it unfriendly for mold.
Once dry, to avoid bringing moisture back into the attic, the SERVPRO team chose to use soda blasting to remove the mold by targeting areas of growth with a highly concentrated stream of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) which works as a mild abrasive to scrub mold from surfaces while it performs the dual function of cleaning plus deodorizing.
Industrial vacuums with HEPA filters are used to pull up mold and spores and trap them so they can be removed entirely from the property. A final wipedown with our professional-grade anti-fungal leaves the surface clean and inhibits the return of mold.
