Our Mold Remediation Process
SERVPRO of Oak Park/Ferndale has the training and expertise to re-mediate your home or business if a mold issue arises. Every scenario for mold damage is different and requires different solutions. However the general mold remediation process stays the same. Here are steps illustrating our typical process for mold remediation.
Step One: Contact Us 248-246-0790
The mold clean up starts when you call us to help. WE will ask a series of questions to help determine the right equipment, resources, and personnel for the job.
Step Two: Inspection and Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect the property for any visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on water and cellulose and can hide from plain view. We use different technologies to detect mold and any hidden water sources.
Step Three: Mold Containment
Here at SERVPRO of Oak Park/Ferndale we professionally use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep mold spores from spreading while cleaning the mold. We make sure to turn off all heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.
Step Four: Air Filtration
Specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spreading of mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step Five: Removing Mold & Mold Infested Materials
Mold remediation depends on the amount of mold growth, and the type of surface it is growing on. We use antimicrobial treatments and anti-fungal to eliminate mold colonies, and to help stop any new colonies from forming. If need be we also will remove mold infested materials like drywall and carpeting to re-mediate heavy mold growth.
Step Six: Cleaning Contents and Belongings
We use a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We will clean furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold. We are also trained to remove odors and deodorize using fogging equipment.
Step Seven: Restoration
The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal. Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, sub-floors, and other building materials may need to be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, or it may entail major repairs such as reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
