Brockton, MA Mold Damage Remediation

Overcoming Mold Growth in Your Brockton Home 

Mold can be one of the underrated threats for a Brockton residence because many homeowners mistakenly believe that the condition comes and goes. Moist and damp areas of your property can often facilitate the growth and spread of mold colonies, making it vital to inspect low-traffic areas of your home regularly. Catching colonization in earlier stages can often reduce the time and money involved in remediation and prevent the organism from spreading far beyond this origin point. 

Mold Removal vs. Mold Remediation 

Many area companies might tell you that they can remove all the mold in your Brocktonhome, but this is a misleading statement. No one can remove all of the molds in your property because spores exist naturally in almost every environment. It is only under specific conditions that these spores can sit into hosting materials and become a threat. Once colonization begins, remediation strategies exist to remove these active organisms. Our professionals have multiple strategies for removing colonies, including: 

  • Soda/Media Blasting
  • Sanding Surfaces
  • Antimicrobial Product Treatment 
  • Abrasive Surface Cleaning
  • Controlled Demolition

Mold-Damaged Contents in Your Residence 

As colonies spread, your personal belongings might be impacted by the organism. We have effective content management solutions to offer on-site and off-site recovery efforts, from surface cleaning and antimicrobial treatments to more complex drying and deodorization efforts. In our SERVPRO facility, your belongings are in the best care, stored in a climate-controlled warehouse until remediation completes.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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 - (508) 690-4690

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. 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 Brockton, MA 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

SERVPRO of Stoughton, Brockton will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
