Jacksonville, NC Mold Damage Remediation

From the facilities of the Department of Defense to higher education institutions like Coastal Carolina Community College or the Jacksonville branch of the University of Mount Olive, the city has hundreds of commercial properties to serve its nearly 75,000 residents. When mold damage threats arise, SERVPRO can help.

Mold Inspections Benefit Jacksonville Properties 

The earliest actions taken to protect the property after mold exposure come from learning more about the disaster. Mold inspectors of our restoration team walk through the property and assess the spread and severity of spores and mold organisms. SERVPRO can evaluate organic matter serving as a host for colonies for salvageability.

Removing Mold in Jacksonville Homes

The mold removal process is not set when our team first arrives but must be determined based on data collected by the inspection process. Several potential approaches can remediate active colonization based on the severity of the infestation and the affected materials. Surface cleaning and media blasting can help in all remediation areas like: 

  • Content recovery
  • Damage repairs 
  • Controlled demolition
  • Odor removal
  • Attic mold removal

Can SERVPRO Complete Mold Damage Repairs?

Your home or business's mold and microbial threats can infiltrate building materials and destroy the hosting elements. Our SERVPRO team can help with needed build-back services and repairs with a general contractor license. Demolition and subsequent reconstruction can eliminate active microbial colonization and return the property to pre-mold conditions.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins. 
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return. 
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process

Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:

Step 1: Emergency Contact - (910) 319-0600

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Jacksonville, NC home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Jacksonville, NC home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
