Cleaning Can Be Effective Mold Remediation

Mold is an underappreciated threat to homes and businesses in the area. As rapidly as these conditions can form and threaten buildings, remediation is often an afterthought until structural compromise results. We utilize a range of mold removal and remediation solutions based on the condition of your property, the location of the colonies, and the salvageability of materials. Surface cleaning is typically the first consideration.

Surface Cleaning Strategies

Surface cleaning is always a preferred method of mold remediation in Covina homes. Using antimicrobial agents and sporicidal products, we can spray solutions onto surfaces and begin to eradicate the spores in contact with the cleaner. Chlorine-based products are especially effective as sporicidal solutions. Applying these agents to surfaces threatened by mold also acts as an inhibiting product and barrier against further infestation and mold development.

The Need for Agitation

Applying sporicidal agents is not often enough alone to remove mold entirely. SERVPRO IICRC -certified professionals use agitation to increase the effectiveness of these applied products. Much like the friction of scrubbing increases the penetration and performance of cleaning agents on materials, agitation approaches improve the results of antimicrobial products. Some of these actions can include:

  • Mechanical Action
  • Sanding
  • Media Abrasives 

More Aggressive Remediation Solutions

Surface cleaning is only sometimes the best choice, however. Sometimes more aggressive measures are required, including abrasive tactics like media blasting with dry ice and sodium bicarbonate. When these are ineffective, we can lean on controlled demolition to remove any infested materials that are too severely damaged to preserve.

Removing mold from your home or business can be a challenging undertaking without the right approaches. We have surface cleaning strategies to help protect hosting materials and prevent unnecessary tear-out and reconstruction. Call our SERVPRO of Azusa / Covina team at (626) 387-4111.
