SERVPRO Techs Have Experience Handling Kent Mold Remediation

Mold damage can spread across a Kent property in numerous ways. One of the most common is when someone attempts to remove the visible mold colonies and accidentally sends the spores airborne throughout the home. 

Although it would not be possible to perform complete mold removal in a Kent property because mold spores naturally occur both inside and outside of structures, SERVPRO technicians possess the training and experience to eradicate mold infestations within all types of properties successfully. 

SERVPRO frequently gets brought into properties to handle mold remediation duties because the homeowner suspects mold but has not visually confirmed it yet. Our IICRC trained technicians can use their equipment to determine likely areas where mold colonies are active. Improving air quality during the mitigation is a standard part of the process. Standard procedures include:

  • Containment
  • Use of specific equipment
  • Cleaning agents formulated for use against mold growth

Air Quality Equipment and Techniques

One of the mainstays during mold mitigation services is using an air scrubber. This powerhouse piece of equipment pulls copious amounts of air into its labyrinth of HEPA filtration, where it captures and holds airborne spores and particulates dislodged during the remediation.

Another method of porting airborne spores off-site is through self-created tubing, creating a negative air chamber that continually forces air into the tube and removes it through a window or doorway vent. 

Final Applications 

The use of antimicrobial cleaners and sealants can go a long way to inhibiting the return of a mold infestation. The mold growth must get identified to be taken care of, whether the problem is from a slow leak or poor ventilation.
