Mold Remediation Tasks For Pembroke Pines Homes

Pembroke Pines missed the worst of the storms this year, but that does not mean residents are free from other disasters. Damage and repair costs from a fire or an unnoticed mold colony can be just as expensive as extreme weather.
Remediation of mold damage to Pembroke Pines homes requires more than bleach and a new coat of paint. For property severely affected by mold, SERVPRO technicians use an extensive inventory of cleaning agents and equipment needed to remove mold and return the item or even a room to a clean, usable condition.
As an example, bathrooms often suffer from the effects of mold due to their high humidity level compared to the rest of the home. Depending on the amount of mold present, our remediation specialists pull down drywall, replace grout, and either clean or dispose of cabinetry.
After the homeowner discovers mold, SERVPRO team members start remediation of the bathroom by removing structural property we cannot clean. Mold spores extend hyphae that grow into the surface of a material like drywall panels, feeding on it, and expanding the colony.
Cleaning or cutting out affected portions in the already weakened material often costs more in labor than buying and installing replacement panels. Once they complete drywall replacement, technicians sand them smooth and then paint each panel with a special paint that contains an anti-fungal chemical which significantly reduces the risk of future mold growth.
The grout between tiles or sealing the tub to the bathroom wall is often the first place an owner sees mold. Cleaning it can be labor intensive. SERVPRO techs can offer the best and least obstructive remedy for this type of mold infestation.
A mold colony often begins where there is a leak. That makes the cabinet surrounding a sink a likely hiding place for active, growing mold spores. If latex paint covers the interior of the cabinet, team members can usually remove mold with a mild cleaner and then spray the surface with an anti-fungal agent. If the spores penetrated the weak plywood or particle board that makes up most cabinets, technicians remove and replace the entire unit.
Mold remediation involves more than just cleaning and painting surfaces. SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines takes every action needed to remediate property from the effects of mold and return each home to its clean, original state whenever possible, "Like it never even happened." If you have or suspect mold in your home, call us today at (954) 998-0600 to schedule an inspection.
