Our Team Has You Covered When A Mold Infestation Has Taken Over Home In San Jose
Mold Clean Up Services For Your San Jose Home
When you discover mold in your San Jose home, it can be an upsetting find since mold can cause health effects. However, now that it is found, you can get it taken care of right away. To do so, you need a professional mold remediation company, as mold cannot be cleaned thoroughly with regular household cleaners, and it can also be difficult to find hidden mold if you are not sure how to do it.
When you need clean up services for mold damage in your San Jose home, SERVPRO’s professional staff is standing by to help you. We have the proper training and tools that we need to remediate the mold and fix the moisture issue causing it in the first place, so it does not return.
The first step of SERVPRO techs is to contain the mold contamination to ensure it does not spread into areas of your home which are not contaminated. Containment can include installing plastic sheeting for barriers and then establishing negative air pressing in the area with the mold. We seal HVAC vents to stop the spread of the mold into your duct system. We also establish clean rooms and decontamination roofs for entering, leaving and decontaminating materials and equipment.
The method we use to remove the mold depends on what kind of surface the mold is on. Nonporous materials can be cleaned. However, porous materials with visible mold growth many times have to be removed and discarded.
Dust and settled spores also need to be cleaned. In most situations, we can remove settled spores by using a HEPA vacuum and damp wiping, even when it comes to porous materials. We clean the surfaces first from top to bottom. We clean in the direction of the airflow toward the negative air machines, and once a round of cleaning is done, we allow time for mold spores and dust to settle again before the next round of cleaning.
Lastly, the contents and structure need to be dried back out. Dehumidifiers with a low airflow need to be used to prevent any further spread of mold. We bring the area back to its normal moisture content levels to prevent further mold growth.
