Methods Used To Contain Debris During Mold Damage Remediation In Columbia Heights
After an incident where materials in your Columbia Heights home absorbed water and mold began growing, getting the issue under control as quickly as possible becomes crucial to protecting other areas of your home. When microbes expand their living area into places where they can cause damage, you need a qualified and experienced partner on your side.
SERVPRO technicians will help you with thorough mold damage remediation in your Columbia Heights home. Because mold itself can become dry, even while living, or still contain unreleased spores after dying, we use highly effective methods that keep these particles contained and away from otherwise uncontaminated areas of your property. Even though mold exists everywhere inside your home, non-dormant mold from active colonies can more easily set up additional colonies than already existing and widely scattered spores can.
When performing mold damage remediation, we build negative pressure containment structures around the area involved. We use non-marking tape, typically blue, to attach heavy gauge polyvinyl sheeting to walls above and adjacent to doorways and corners, as well as to the floor — these block off the air to the other areas of the house. Inside this area, we attach plastic tubing between an air scrubber and a window. Once turned on, all air exits out of the window after passing through the machinery.
During scraping of mold from walls and ceilings, or blasting, or cutting away, a large amount of dust accumulates in the area we are working on to remove the active mold. These particles of dust, mold, and spores all leave through the air scrubber. Having a HEPA filter attached, the majority of these become trapped. Only the finest particles, smaller than .003 microns, pass through to the outside world.
Another way SERVPRO's IICRC-certified specialists protect your property from exposure to moldy materials during remediation is to always double bag materials. This simple step provides substantial protection from the mold clinging to materials as we carry it outside of your home. There, we dispose of it, so you never need to worry about it recontaminating your property, even outside.
