Why SERVPRO Techs Use Different Mold Removal Methods in Lafayette
SERVPRO Crews Suit Up for Mold Removal
Not wanting to continue smelling that distinctive odor caused by microbial overgrowth, homeowners in Lafayette opt for mold removal services to get their homes clean again. Since each home differs from the next one, SERVPRO needs various methods to make our work more efficient and cost-effective.
Our mold removal methods in Lafayette target the precise location, material, and environment to better serve our customers. We would not use the same techniques on the dry mold that we would use with mold in a moister, damper environment. We want to remove microbes in a way that contains them and their spores. We take cross-contamination very seriously, so we wear full-body suits, masks, and gloves – our personal protective equipment (PPE).
To protect your home from spores that can begin a new mold colony, our IICRC trained techs include these in our mold removal services:
- Chambered sections of your home with plastic sheeting,
- Vacuuming up mold particles and spores with vacuums that have HEPA filtrations systems, and
- Detection and elimination of damp areas in your residence.
Mold particles and spores can quickly become airborne and find their way to other areas of a house. Plastic sheeting creates a barrier, making it much more difficult for microbes and their spores to reach new areas of the home.
HEPA filters help us capture and remove mold from your home even more. Standard filters cannot do this and fail to perform at the required level. Keeping track of mold is difficult because of its microscopic size, so we must depend on trusted equipment and devices to do this for us.
With specialized cameras that detect the differences in surface temperature, we can visually see where damper areas exist inside your residence. Following these moisture pockets back to their source, we can eliminate them and restore more arid conditions. A drier environment helps reduce the ability of microbes to overgrow.
