Hey Augusta! Need Some Mold Removal--Done Right? Call SERVPRO!
SERVPRO Mold Remediation Cleans and Restores the Bathroom Ceiling in No Time for Augusta Homes
The need for mold remediation is common because colonies can occur anywhere there are three essential elements: moisture, optimum temperatures for growth, and food. A source of nutrients can consist of building materials, wood, and items such as books or papers are commonly affected. Organic compounds containing cellulose are readily available to mold spores.
We were called to perform mold remediation on a home in Augusta that had a broken exhaust fan and each long, hot shower taken in the home resulted in warm, moist air trapped in the attic area. Not realizing the mold was coming from a mechanical issue, the homeowner had sprayed the few mold spots he had seen on the ceiling with bleach, and when they disappeared, he assumed the problem was handled, until he started smelling a musty odor.
Why call SERVPRO? Our Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) certified technicians are specially trained in the restorative trade to bring a property back to preloss condition and minimize replacement costs to property and contents whenever possible.
Our applied microbial remediation technicians (AMRT) inspected the bathroom ceiling and found the issue was a broken exhaust fan. Mold colonies were actively growing in the area. The bathroom was contained by placing plastic over the doorway and vents. We also shut off the HVAC to stop any further spread of mold spores during the cleanup.
The technicians gently abraded the mold colonies with scrapers and used a small handheld vacuum with a HEPA filter to minimize the chance of cross-contamination. After the mold colony damage was removed, disinfected and deodorized, SERVPRO techs vacuumed and fogged the ductwork with an antifungal agent to exterminate dormant mold spores that could activate and grow if exposed to moisture. Once our cleanup was completed, the homeowner was advised of the suggested repair needed to the exhaust fan so the cycle would never repeat itself.
