Mold Removal In Agoura Hills
Mold can spread throughout an Agoura Hills home before the owner even knows it is there. The typical musty smell is how homeowners first notice most mold growths, but not every strain of mold gives off that odor. When the growth finally begins to show on the bathroom ceiling, it can mean a cost of thousands of dollars in cleaning, demolition, and remediation.
Mold removal in Agoura Hills homes needs a professional service skilled in all three of these areas. SERVPRO has the expertise and training to properly care for each home as we clean it and remove loose mold and property we cannot treat. Our technicians can do this while also preventing the spread of mold to other parts of the home.
We begin by removing loose spores on surfaces. HEPA filters are designed to trap even a single spore off a table or wall. Our technicians use them in commercial grade vacuums on every surface from floors to ceilings and are very effective on personal property like sofas and other furniture.
Vacuuming the affected rooms stirs mold spores on the property, and some of them begin circulating in the air. To prevent the spores from spreading to the rest of the home, we block all air vents and seal off every entrance to the mold-infested area. We allow time for loose spores to settle and then wipe down surfaces with dry or wet sponges. When completed, SERVPRO inspectors use air content meters to determine the mold count and repeat cleaning actions until the level is at normal levels.
As we clean, other team members examine building material for mold infestation. If the spores have begun growing into drywall panels, for example, we remove them, break them down for bagging to prevent spreading mold, and then dispose of them outside the home. The most building material is difficult to clean, and it is more often cheaper to replace it.
For furniture and other personal property, we make every effort to clean it at home. For heavily infested items, we can wrap them to prevent spreading the mold and then clean our facility using methods that require special equipment. An example of this is cleaning curtains or drapes using immersion tanks that force cleaning agents through the items for deeper cleaning.
