Can water damage lead to mold growth?

Water intrusion incidents are the leading cause of mold infestation. Mold needs water to grow. Removing the water and moisture is an excellent way to prevent mold infestation. Mold develops when there is:

    •    Moisture
    •    Warm temperatures
    •    A food source like carpet, drywall and organic dust

SERVPRO can help you with water damage cleanup and mold removal services.

How do you clean mold in a specific area?

When we get to your property, we begin with inspecting the area thoroughly. If we determine mold growth in a specific area, we can construct containment. We can build a small enclosure by wrapping 6-mil polyethylene around a frame of PVC pipe. The enclosure is enough for one restorer to remove contaminated materials and clean the area. We can use Microban, which is a quaternary compound, to disinfect the affected area. The product acts against a broad spectrum of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms.

How do you dry the contained area?

The contained area is only safe after it is dried effectively. We can use devices that create conditions that dehumidify the area and filter the air. These devices may include an air mover, negative air scrubber, and a desiccant dehumidifier that uses chemicals called desiccants to absorb moisture. Once we remove mold, it is necessary to clean the air to eliminate airborne mold spores. An air scrubber enables us to remove mold spores and other pollutants that could be still in the air.

Even an insignificant amount of water can cause damage to your property. Contact SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress at (562) 431-9400 for prompt water damage cleanup services.
