Professional Cleanup Options during Mold Damage Remediation in Westlake Village
Westlake Village Homeowners Rely on SERVPRO for Mold Remediation
There are several methods to choose from when conducting mold damage remediation since not all incidents are the same. The contaminated materials and the level of damage usually determine the technique we use to restore your property. That means the restorers are always creative and come up with mold removal processes that are appropriate for a particular situation. We are looking at some of the cleanup methods we use when addressing such issues in Westlake Village.
If there is water in your Westlake Village property during mold damage remediation, our SERVPRO technicians can collect it through wet vacuuming. This technique can remove water from carpets, floors, and other hard surfaces. Vacuuming porous materials is not recommended, and we usually use this technique when your items are still wet.
Mold can cause health effects, whether alive or dead. If it is resting on non-porous surfaces, we can scrub or wipe it down. After conducting damp wiping, we usually dry the areas as soon as possible to prevent further growth. Since the molds can grow in the crevices or empty spaces within porous substances, we discard such items if we deem them impossible to rid of the mold hyphae or the materials have already degraded and have become non-salvageable.
After we have thoroughly cleaned the site and removed materials with the contamination, our SERVPRO technicians perform HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuuming. This method is also helpful when eliminating dust, which might have settled in areas surrounding the remediation region. If there is the need to change the filter, we use the right PPE to avoid exposure to the contamination. We then place the contents of the HEPA vacuum in sealed plastic bags.
Some of the Personal Protective Equipment that our SERVPRO technicians use during the restoration process includes headgear, the full-face respirator, disposable full body clothing, and gloves. The goal is to avoid inhaling the spores and fungi and prevent possible contact with the skin or eyes.
