How to Deal with Mold Damage in San Jose Effectively

The proliferation of mold colonies has different adverse effects on properties. You need to start remedial action immediately early signs appear in your San Jose property. Surfaces infested by mold can be an eyesore, and the musty smell associated with such growth is not comfortable either. The smell is produced by the chemical changes that happen to the mold during its lifecycle. The spores also produce hyphae which attach to surfaces or grow deep into porous materials. This process leads to a breakdown of the affected materials causing deterioration and loss of structural strength. As certified AMRT, Applied Microbial Remedial Technicians, our team comes up with unique approaches to deal with any situation.

We understand the need for containment in areas where there is severe mold damage in San Jose. Based on the extensive IICRC training, and experiences we have had dealing with mold, we take various steps to create proper containment areas. Our SERVPRO technicians can install plastic sheeting creating containment barriers. We also seal HVAC vents preventing contamination of the duct systems which can lead to long-term air quality issues. By taking these steps, we prevent the spread of debris to other unaffected areas.

Cleaning affected areas properly is also essential. Our highly skilled team takes various steps when cleaning these areas. To get rid of loose fragments of mold, we HEPA vacuum affected materials. To remove residue from semi-porous materials such as wood and concrete, our SERVPRO technicians damp wipe, wire brush, or sand the infested materials. We also rely on specialized techniques such as Soda blasting when removing mold residue because it is very efficient and unlike the abrasive techniques, it does not damage the surfaces.

Removing airborne spores and other debris is also important. By establishing negative air pressure in the problem areas, our SERVPRO technicians get rid of airborne debris. We also use HEPA filtered air scrubbers that capture 99.97% of particles helping improve the air quality.

Dealing with mold issues should not be a big problem. Call SERVPRO of Campell at (408) 371-4001 for a customized solution for the problem you are facing. We’re Faster To Any Size Disaster.
