We’ll Clean Up Damages
Microscopic mold spores are everywhere. They naturally exist in almost every indoor and outdoor environment. But when mold spores begin to be visible and form colonies, you need to act fast because mold spreads quickly. Not only is mold unsightly, but it can cause a slew of health conditions. Things like respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, throat irritation, coughs, skin irritation, and eye irritation can all be signs of mold exposure. Though it is impossible to fully eliminate all mold spores in an environment, mold remediation focuses on bringing mold levels back to normal, natural levels. The experts at 911 Water Damage Experts can address virtually any level of mold infestation. Since mold spores thrive on moisture and can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water, sources of water or moisture must be addressed before mold remediation can begin. Leaking pipes, areas with poor ventilation, floodwater, and condensation can put your home at a heightened risk of toxic mold or black mold.

The Mold Remediation Process
After areas with poor ventilation and high levels of moisture have been addressed, we start our mold remediation services by thoroughly inspecting the infected areas. If there’s a musty smell in the air yet the source of the mold cannot be visually located, we use special technology to detect moldy areas. After the infested area has been located, it must be fully contained. This means closing all doors and windows between the contaminated area and other parts of the home or building. If the contamination is more intense, the doorway and other openings will also need to be covered with 6 mil polyethylene sheeting and sealed with duct tape. Once the contaminated area is properly contained, we’ll suppress dust by misting the contaminated areas. At this point, all wet and mold-damaged porous materials will need to be removed and properly discarded. Non-porous materials, as well as moldy wooden surfaces, must be cleaned with a wire brush and then wiped clean with disposable wipes. After materials with visible mold have been cleaned, it is then imperative to clean the entire space, even if there is no evidence of mold. Then, cleaned materials should be left to dry, allowing leftover moisture to evaporate. To speed up this process, our professionals often raise the indoor air temperature or use fans and dehumidifiers. Rely on 911 Water Damage Experts for your mold remediation in Memphis Metro, TN!
