SERVPRO Arrives With Effective Mold Damage Mitigation Equipment To Serve Lakeland Customers

Hanging up damp towels or swimsuits in the bathroom protects these items from microbial activity, but the water vapor can cause problem areas in your Lakeland home. Ill-fitting vent and duct joints can let warm, damp air to escape into your home from the dryer, shower, and stove-top cooking.

When steam and water vapor increase substantially, microbial infestations can lead to mold damage in your Lakeland property. SERVPRO's Microbial Restoration Specialists (MRS) use powerful equipment and methods to normalize your home's overabundance of microorganisms. Reducing mold and spores to where they no longer put your home at risk requires we not only remove affected areas but also protect the rest of your house.

Removal and clean up of mold, spores, and associated debris happens with devices that abrade the surfaces and strip microorganisms away from the surface. When mold infestations are dry and powdery, we often use a vacuum to clean surfaces. HEPA filters make this possible – otherwise, we would only spread the mold into the air.

If we catch heavier infestations of mold before they can eat away at the material beneath them, we can often save the area with slightly more aggressive tactics than mere vacuuming. While we finish up with a handheld vac, this is only to clean up the baking soda used to blast the mold away. Other times we use dry ice pellets that evaporate, again leaving just the abraded mold and spores to clean away.

Just like the HEPA filters on our handheld vacuums, we use other containment methods that keep other places in your home safe from contamination. Keeping microscopic organisms from escaping one area of your home into another place requires temporary but effective barriers. Negative pressure chambers set up quickly and need little work, but effectively push pieces of mold and spores out of your home.

A basic chamber requires clear plastic sheets, low-residue tape, some flexible tubing, and an air scrubber. The 'room' we make encloses the area contaminated by mold, and the tubing creates an enclosed pathway from the air scrubber's exhaust to the exterior of your house. Hospitals use this same method to keep pathogens from leaving a contagious patient's room and entering the hallway and other areas.

Let SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland Highlands use our effective high tech equipment and our professional skills to remediate your home of mold and mildew. Eliminating areas with mold damage starts the process of restoring your home. Call us at (863) 510-5962 when you find mold or have questions about patchy, discolorations on walls and other surfaces or detect a musty odor that never seems to disappear.
