What to Expect During Professional Mold Damage Remediation in Fort Collins
Team SERVPRO Makes Sure that BOTH Your Home and Our Technicians are Safe While Remediating a Mold Infestation in Your Home
By failing to dry water-soaked contents in your property, you risk experiencing mold damage. Mold usually grows in moist conditions and can decompose organic materials and lead to permanent damage. Getting the water out of the structure is a crucial process during remediation, and we advise you to work with professionals who possess the right tools and skills to do the job. Once we are at the site, we perform initial evaluations and tests and come up procedures to follow to return your Fort Collins property to its preloss state.
Our SERVPRO team is aware that exposure to mold damage in Fort Collins can cause health effects and as a result, we provide for our health and safety. We do this by wearing the right PPE such as goggles, gloves, and in some instances, we use full-face respirators that have filter cartridges. It is also important to note that we undergo training on how to use the PPE.
Since there are chances of disturbing the mold and making it airborne when we are working, we put in place containment measures. By using HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters together with air filtration devices (AFD), we can ensure that the contaminated area is under negative pressure. We can also use polyethylene sheeting to serve as barriers separating the site from the uncontaminated areas. Our SERVPRO team makes sure all air handling systems in the work area are turned off to avoid spreading the spores.
At this point, we are ready to remove the contamination. Our SERVPRO technicians remove materials that have the contamination and put them in polyethylene bags and later dispose of them as per the local and state regulations. After cleaning and allowing a dust settlement period, we can perform damp wiping and HEPA vacuuming to remove the settling spores. We use an anti-microbial detergent when wiping the surfaces.
