Our Team Takes Precautions To Clean And Remove Mold

Mold can grow inside your Little Rock home, which can lead to an infestation of active mold if it is not dealt with quickly. When this happens, call professionals to clean and remove the mold right away. Our teams are highly trained and can restore your property to its pre-mold condition when possible.

SERVPRO mold damage teams in Little Rock work fast to contain mold and take safety measures to prevent it from spreading throughout other sections of the home. First, our techs use plastic sheeting to block off areas such as windows, hallways, and doors. The crew also seals air vents to stop airflow and to prevent mold spores from spreading through the HVAC system. If necessary, the team can set up a clean room to store the clothing they wear and the equipment they use during the cleanup and containment stages. This step helps prevent mold spores from spreading to other areas of the structure.

Once the team seals the affected areas, they begin to remove mold from various surfaces. The surfaces our crews clean are either porous or non-porous. Porous surfaces include insulation and carpeting. Crews can use anti-fungal sprays to kill active mold spores on porous surfaces and to prevent mold from growing back. The team can take materials like drapes or upholstered furniture outside of the home to clean them. It is important to stress that if contaminated water comes in contact with carpeting and other materials, the crew has to throw those items away.

Typically, our techs can clean non-porous surfaces such as glass or metal with wet sponges and mild detergents. For thicker layers of mold on non-porous surfaces, the team may use a vacuum with a HEPA filter to pick up and trap mold spores. For semi-porous surfaces such as concrete or wood, teams may need to employ agitation techniques such as sanding, ice or soda blasting, damp wiping or wire brushing to remove mold.

The technicians may also use air scrubbers to clean the air and reduce stale mold odors. Plus, crews can use these machines to remove airborne mold spores from the area. Our techs may also utilize dehumidifiers to reduce moisture levels. After our crews clean and remove the mold from the structure, they can start the drying phase. We may use axial fans to push damp air from the structure and to speed up drying. Air movers may also be put in place to draw in warm, dry air and to reduce moisture levels.
