How Different Levels of Infestation Affect Mold Removal in Agoura Hills

Mold spores occur freely in the environment because mold helps in natural decay processes. However, mold development in your property is both a nuisance and a threat that can destroy what you have put much effort to build. Luckily, infestations go through different stages and therefore take time before ruining your property entirely. Our AMRT, Applied Microbial Remediation technicians can help you take specific steps at different stages of the infestation.

If possible, mold removal in Agoura Hills should happen in the early stages of growth because it is much simpler. Mold starts growth within 24-48 hours if there is excessive moisture in a property such as after a water spill. Growth can be restricted to wet areas or spread all over the property if relative humidity exceeds 60%. At such early stages, just wiping the affected area with an antimicrobial cleaning agent should eliminate visible mold. Our SERVPRO technicians use equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers or take other steps to reduce relative humidity and dry-wet areas. Such steps prevent recurrence.

Mold tends to develop in dark concealed areas such as crawlspaces, wall cavities and beneath plumbing fixtures such as bathtubs due to leaks or other issues that accumulate moisture slowly. In such cases, it is hard to notice the problem in the early stages. However, once signs such as dark patches appear on surfaces, you should start remediation processes immediately. Our SERVPRO technicians help by tracing all areas with moisture problems using advanced detection tools like moisture sensors and thermal cameras. We also help provide the advanced cleaning resources needed. For example, soda blasting helps remove stubborn mold residues without damaging affected materials.

When left to proliferate over extended periods, mold hyphae penetrate deep into organic materials such as wood compromising their structural integrity. Such outcomes are likely in unoccupied properties where no one notices the early signs. Our SERVPRO technicians help by removing the affected materials physically. We also carry out extensive cleanup and use air scrubbers to remove particulate residues from the air.

Mold removal can mean different things depending on the level of infestation. SERVPRO of Agoura / Calabasas / Hidden Hills can help you respond accordingly. Call us at (818) 991-6292 any time. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
