Mold Damage Remediation In Your Amherst Home

When you have detected a mold problem in your Amherst home, you do not want to hesitate in getting it handled. Professional help is needed to clean up the mold and to stop it from spreading further. The quicker this is done, the better since mold can cause health effects and quickly grows to other areas.

Mold damage remediation for your Amherst home is essential to have done by professionals like our staff at SERVPRO. Our specialists have the expertise and advanced equipment needed to get the job done correctly and promptly.

One of the most popular methods for mold remediation on semi-porous and non-porous surfaces is blasting. Blasting systems give a very thoroughly clean without needing much manual labor like scraping, scrubbing, or wire brushing. There are several different media blasting methods which can be used, including water, baking soda, and grit.

We can use dry-ice blasting to remove larger areas of mold or lightly charred raw lumber such as attic crawl spaces after a fire. The pellets of carbon dioxide are under pressure and shootout and scrape the residue from the surfaces. The solid pellets then pass into a gaseous state, which leaves a minimal mess.

Grit and sandblasting are thought of as more aggressive methods and are used most frequently for coatings, rusted surfaces, and preparation or floor cleaning. It can disturb mold spores but might be too aggressive. It can also break up the mold spores into smaller particles, which can then pass through your HEPA filtrations system and contaminate other areas of the home.

Soda blasting, on the other hand, has been found to be quite useful and is a popular method that SERVPRO techs use for mold remediation. It doesn’t cause much damage to the surface being treated since it is softer than other blasting media. Any debris that is made from this process is suctioned up as it is progressing. We also create containment barriers with plastic sheeting to isolate the circulation of mold spores and debris from spreading.
