SERVPRO Mold Remediation Restores a Plantation Home’s Closet

The Plantation property shown in the Before Photo has extensive mold growth permeating the wall and ceiling near a vent that likely also has spores inside. Whether it is black mold or another type of microbial growth, it can be difficult to remediate to safe levels and potentially cause health effects for Plantation homeowners. SERVPRO strives to keep residents safe with 24/7 service, EPA-registered biocide solutions, and commercial-grade mold remediation equipment. This Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified firm can also implement odor control and structural repairs after remediation to return affected areas to a pre-disaster state.

Plantation Mold Inspections, Remediations, and Removal Start with SERVPRO Safety Measures

When preparing a Plantation property for mold removal, SERVPRO professionals observe a plethora of safety and containment measures to prevent spores from migrating to other areas of the home. These measures include:

- Use of personal protective equipment (PPE) in designated clean rooms to prevent Plantation SERVPRO technicians from spreading spores while moving between rooms

- Sealing vents, windows, and entryways in affected areas with polyethylene sheeting

- Establishing negative air pressure with HEPA-filter air scrubbers to limit spore movement

Closet Mold Inspection and Demolition from Plantation SERVPRO Techs

While SERVPRO professionals take a restoration-first approach, mold exposure that has reached the surface of structural materials frequently requires removing unsafe porous materials like drywall and carpet. The demolition process removes unsalvageable materials from a Plantation home while also allowing SERVPRO technicians easier access to hard-to-reach areas affected by black mold and elevated moisture. Plantation restoration pros implement air movers and dehumidifiers to remove water and dry out mold spores for ease of removal.

Black Mold Mitigation in Plantation Includes SERVPRO Sanitation and Odor Control

While structural drying equipment helps Plantation SERVPRO techs address mold, a multitude of other tools aids the crew with comprehensive mold remediation. HEPA-filter vacuums that can collect particles as small as 0.3 microns excel at removing mold spores, which typically range from 4 to 20 microns. OSHA-approved antimicrobial solutions can be manually applied, fogged, or implemented with sprayers depending on the extent of mold exposure. Plantation SERVPRO Odor Control Technicians (OCTs) can deploy scented granules, time-release gel pellets, or thermal foggers with solvent-based deodorizers to eliminate malodors from mold and moisture.

SERVPRO Mold Specialists Prepare a Plantation Home for Renovation

As the After Photo shows, SERVPRO professionals removed compromised drywall from the Plantation property’s closet. The crew also sanitized HVAC, electrical components, and wall studs. Containment measures are in place, as evidenced by the sheeting placed over the window. SERVPRO technicians can coordinate with Plantation insurers to perform build-back services after mold removal, including general contracting, HVAC services, and drywall installation. SERVPRO’s goal is not just to mitigate mold damage but also to prevent further exposure per restoration industry standards.
