Putting a Stop to Microbial Growth and Remediating Mold Damage in Your Little Rock Dwelling

Mold Damage Little Rock
The sight of mold in your home is usually enough to consider bringing in professional assistance. Fungi can grow and spread quickly in a home environment causing unpleasant odors as well as damaging possessions and fabrics. Some materials can become non-salvageable once infested with mold growth, which is why acting quickly to solve the issue is imperative. You can solve microbial growth issues using disinfectants or discarding infested items. However, in some cases, an infestation may get out of control, which is when you should look to bring in professional remediation.

 
Restoration services that deal with mold damage in Little Rock can help you to deal with the issue for the first time of asking. It is not always clear or easy to find where microbial growth starts. SERVPRO uses state-of-the-art moisture detection equipment to locate potential damp spots that may be residing behind walls or underneath fittings. Using a combination of restoration expertise as well as specific mold remediation training, our technicians can find and neutralize microbial growth issues in the home.

Porous materials that show signs of infestation frequently have to be removed and disposed of to control microbial growth. These materials may include sections of drywall or insulation found inside walls. Failure to altogether remove these items could result in recurring microbial growth issues as well as permanent rot in the structure itself. SERVPRO can seal any contaminated items during service and adequately dispose of them.


While mold remediation is in progress, it may be necessary to set up containment zones to limit the spread of mold spores. Mold spores are invisible to the naked eye but can travel on natural air currents in the home. Without due care and attention, the spread of mold spores can lead to mold colonies in previously unaffected areas of the home. When performing aggressive cleaning or controlled demolitions, SERVPRO uses negative air-pressure as well as plastic sheeting to prevent mold spreading.


Once contaminated items are disposed of, and colonies removed, we can begin to put in place guards against future mold growth. Disinfecting salvageable materials and treating surfaces with biocides or other anti-microbial chemicals can help to discourage microbial growth. We may also place air-scrubbers fitted with high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters to remove microscopic spores from the affected room and prevent mold from returning.
