Mold Remediation Begins in Jacksonville Residences with Surface Treatments

When you believe mold damage exists in your home, it is essential to act quickly. We have experienced remediation professionals trained in multiple mold removal and cleanup approaches. From surface treatment to repairs and reconstruction, we are a full-service team to help.

What Is Surface Treatment Remediation?

Surface cleaning and treatment, which uses antimicrobial products and mechanical action for removal, are preferred for mold damaged Jacksonville properties. This process is the least invasive approach for recovery after organisms spread throughout the property. We have several potent sporicidal and antimicrobial products within our inventory to destroy spores and microbes on contact.

Can Mechanical Actions Help?

Mechanical actions and agitation can amplify the desired result with surface cleaning. In this case, steps more effectively remove superficial mold damage. Some of the options we utilize include:

  • Hand Sanding – Gritty paper can clear mold on surfaces like wood framing without compromising the integrity of the materials.
  • Steel Wool – This abrasive material is ideal for clearing surface mold that has started to penetrate the surface.
  • Brushing – Hard bristled brushes remove more stubborn colonies.

Are More Abrasive Cleaning Options Needed?

Surface treatments are often insufficient to overcome the active colonization within a house. Although surface cleaning is the most desirable approach due to its non-invasiveness, many situations warrant a more abrasive and aggressive cleaning solution. Our IICRC trained team can provide strategies like dry ice blasting or even controlled demolition where necessary.

It is vital to quickly respond when you believe that mold damage exists in your home. Even when you cannot see the immediate effects of colonies, you can often identify the possibility of microbial growth through physical signs. When you suspect microbial damage, give our SERVPRO of Pender / West Onslow Counties team a call to help at (910) 319-0600.
