Containment is crucial during mold remediation projects!

One of the containments placed throughout the home during a remediation project.

Containment in remediation protocols and projects is an industry staple. Mold is a living organism and is actively seeking to expand its environment beyond its present location. As a licensed remediation company we set up containment around a visible mold bloom the moment we step onto the job site. Our true containment in an effective mold remediation is the entire building, not just the immediate area or room where we have visible growth. 

The reason we contain the way we do is because the real culprit are the airborne spores that have already spread throughout the building or home. If improper containment is places the spores have the potential to be left behind and create further damage. 

Pre and post remediation reports put together by mold assessment consultants help to demonstrate to the customer the improvement in air quality that we as the remediation contractor need to provide. 

Mold Remediation Inspection

6/25/2019 (Permalink)

As most home and business owners know, the reason for a mold remediation inspection is to identify whether you have a mold problem. The inspection will conclude one of two things:

1. You DON'T have an issue and your concerns are alleviated by the inspection or a report provided by a Mold Assessment Consultant.

2. You DO have an issue and remediation should be performed as soon as possible.

Honestly, we would all prefer the outcome to be number one right? As most of our customers know the answer is usually number two. Our trained team of specialists can perform an inspection and if a Mold Assessment Consultant is required, we work with several frequently that we could refer to provide a protocol. 

If you have concerns about microbial growth, give our office a call today. Our team would be happy to walk you through our process. 972-420-4771

SERVPRO green throughout this mold remediation project!

Remediation project completed in Dallas, Tx.

We received a call from a customer located in Dallas that was in need of mold remediation as soon as possible in order to sell his home. He had already reached out to a mold assessment consultant to draft a remediation protocol and was able to provide it to us. The scope of work was very specific but nothing our team couldn't handle! 

As you can see from the photo, containment was key in this project and was required on all flooring. Now we personally love the SERVPRO green look however, this was only temporary until we received clearance. Our team completed the work and passed clearance within the timeline of the customers closing date which made him extremely happy! 

Another job well done crew!

Setting up a containment for mold

SERVPRO of Flower Mound technician taping cabinets

A local company called in SERVPRO of Flower Mound when they discovered they were in need of mold remediation. After years of wear and tear water permeated the carpet in their office space and left without remediation it grew mold. SERVPRO of Flower Mound ensured a protocol had been made and quickly got to work on the site. For those that do not know, mold remediation cannot begin until a containment has been set up. The containment ensures that mold from the affected area will not spread to unaffected areas. Here we see a SERVPRO of Flower Mound technician in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) working on the containment. In addition to the tape a cover will be placed over the door and any other openings will be closed.

What happens when you don’t mitigate

Water damage untreated will likely end up with mold

Unbeknownst to you water entered into your home or commercial property. It sat and temperatures rose and fell, as they tend to do this time of year in Texas. Time goes by and by the time you stumble upon some unchecked cabinet, or unused corner of your property, mold has begun to grow. This is a more common cause of mold, but it gives us a chance to talk about the importance of mitigation.

Drying out your home or commercial property immediately after a water damage changes the size and severity of the damage and ultimately saves money and time. Ignoring a wet spot or choosing to not have an ERP (Emergency Readiness Plan) created for your property leaves you at risk.

For a complimentary ERP call SERVPRO of Flower Mound at (214) 250-1626.
