SERVPRO - Cleaning Mold Damaged Property In Trinity

Trinity residents know that a little water can cause an incredible amount of damage. Removing and drying property after a storm or plumbing incident does not always take care of every problem. Many times, these disasters can also lead to a mold infestation.
 
Reducing and eliminating mold damage to Trinity homes means looking not just overhead or behind walls. SERVPRO restoration teams understand that once mold begins to grow and expand in a home, it can spread through not just bathrooms and laundry rooms, but grow underfoot, unnoticed until it spreads throughout the entire home.
 
Most homeowners and residents do not realize they have a mold problem until they detect that distinctive, musty odor. Not all mold growths exude it, however, so it is not a reliable indicator. The only reliable methods are for our technicians to use a mold content meter to test the air for high levels of mold spores or pull up the carpet after a flooding incident and perform a thorough visual inspection.
 
If SERVPRO technicians discover mold, they use a shampoo machine to kill the active mold spores with a cleaning solution containing an anti-fungal agent. After completing the process, they use an extractor to draw out remaining water with the mold spores.
 
Next, they detach the carpet and dispose of the pad underneath it. Carpet pads cannot be cleaned of the mold without damaging them, and since they are cheaper to replace than restore, disposal is the only cost-efficient option.
 
Now, technicians dry the carpet and the floor underneath it. They lift opposite ends to create entry and exit points and then install air movers and box fans to increase airflow and speed up the process. Once they finish drying the carpet, the team leader examines it for traces of mold. If she finds none, team members install a new carpet pad and then tack the carpet back in place.
 
It is impossible to eliminate every mold spore, but at SERVPRO of Tarpon, we can stop active mold growth. Our goal is to treat affected property so that homeowners and residents can return to a clean environment as quickly as possible. If you need us, call (727) 934-5555 today. We are here for you.
