Three Reasons Why SERVPRO is Needed to Remediate Mold in Your Camarillo Home

Mold Remediation Three Reasons Why SERVPRO is Needed to Remediate Mold in Your Camarillo Home Did you know that experts recommend that mold infested areas greater than 10 feet be professionally remediated for mold damage?

The Basics of Mold Remediation in a Home in Camarillo

When you discover that your home contains areas covered in mold, you might feel at first that you can control the invasion from countless microorganisms yourself. However, industry standards recommend that areas larger than ten square feet almost always require professional remediation.  

SERVPRO is Faster To Any Size Disaster and always ready to send out IICRC-certified mold remediation specialists to Camarillo when you call us. There are a few basic methods used during almost all of the mold remediation work we conduct. Reading about these procedures might explain why many experts who study microorganisms find value in professional mold remediation.  

Detecting Water in all the Wrong Places

Finding water that nourishes mold and other microbes is a crucial aspect of mold remediation. Our infrared cameras detect temperature fluctuations, helping us locate all of the sources that allowed mold to grow out of control. Once discovered, we close these sources off, making it impossible for microbes to get their next drink.  

Mold Spores, Particles, and Dust

We use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to ensure that we do not inhale any mold spores and particles from scraped or blasted mold. This equipment consists of goggles, as well, to protect our eyes from anything that might become a tiny projectile. Other types of PPE include gloves, boots, and full suits, all designed to protect us from temporary hazards while remediating mold.  

Containment chambers enclose the area we work in and keep mold from spreading within your house. An essential component of these chambers includes the use of air scrubbers or air movers attached to flexible tubing that directs fast-moving air outside while drawing relatively clean air into the chamber. We use air scrubbers outside of the chamber, as well, to trap any mold spores already released by mold colonies before beginning our work.  

Cleanup and Prevention

We want to make sure that we do not leave any traces of remediated mold behind once we leave your home, and clean the area with vacuums that use HEPA filters. To prevent future situations, we treat specific areas in your home that might have an increased risk of developing mold damage again. We use liquid antimicrobials that dry quickly to a nontoxic and unnoticeable film that not only prevent future growth but trap and kill any remaining microbes in the area.  

SERVPRO of Camarillo would like to partner with you by providing mold remediation to your home's interior and making things just “Like it never even happened.” We always treat our customers' homes like we would want our residences handled. You can reach us for this and other mitigation needs by calling (805) 484-5009, 24/7, 365 days a year.
