Mold Inspections, Remediations, and Removal Need to Be Conducted by a Team of Professionals
Mold Remediation in Plantation is a Job for SERVPRO
Humidity is a fact of life in Florida, especially as the summer months come along. Despite many of our homes and businesses being under A/C, it is not uncommon for the weather to make its way into them, especially during the rainy season. If you suspect humidity is creating a nurturing environment for mold growth and want a mold inspection performed by a professional team, SERVPRO is your answer.
Plantation and the South Florida region are well known for their green spaces, and the area has welcomed many new residents in the last months. The city of Plantation and its leaders continuously make a conscious effort to promote green spaces and green living. It has received the Gold level designation from the Florida Green Building Coalition (FGBC), recognizing the city's sustainability efforts and commitment to improving its citizens' lives through environmental stewardship. Furthermore, city officials have worked with the National Wildlife Federation to become certified as a "Community Wildlife Habitat," an accolade bestowed upon only selected communities.
The City of Plantation's commitment to the environment dates back to 1976 when it started the Street Tree Program. This program seeks to increase the tree population while enhancing the quality of life for its residents. Homeowners can participate in the program while the city provides support in purchasing the trees, planting and maintaining them.
Dealing with mold remediation in Plantation
Mold can cause health effects, and removing it should be your top priority. It is not uncommon for mold to spread throughout a building for extended periods before its inhabitants discover its existence. Being vigilant and performing a mold inspection regularly can help you avoid widespread mold contamination. The basic steps to mold removal include:
- Containment and Safety Precautions- Not surprisingly, our SERVPRO staff wears personal protective equipment to take care of mold in your business. Full body suits, masks, and respirators may be necessary to protect the staff. As a team, we raise physical barriers to the spread of mold by adding plastic sheeting around affected areas and controlling ventilation systems.
- Removal- removing mold involves discarding any materials beyond being salvaged and cleaning each surface with equipment such as HEPA vacuums and sprayers. In this process, we assess the structural integrity of furniture and space itself and make additional recommendations as needed.
- Drying- key to humidity control, we dry the area thoroughly to prevent future growth. Restoring normal humidity levels is possible thanks to specialized equipment such as air movers, dehumidifiers, and desiccants.
