Got Mold in Wichita?

5/16/2018 (Permalink)

The mold growth seen in this Wichita, KS home was not due to any intrusion of water. It was simply left empty with nothing to bring down the humidity.

We excel at mold remediation here at SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita especially when it comes to mold in crawlspaces. We have the training and experience to quarantine the infestation, filter the potentially harmful spores out of the air, remove the contaminated materials, and help prevent future microbial growth all with a transferable warranty on our work for 2 years.

Mold in your workplace or home?

Imagine you were getting something out of a utility closet at work, and you found mold growing on the back wall. Maybe a pinhole leak from a pipe created an ideal situation for mold to grow in this closet. With the HVAC system in such close proximity it risks taking the mold spores in the air and spreading them throughout the office. We can help you identify the leak if necessary and once the leak has been stopped we can begin our remediation work to ensure healthy air for your employees and customers to breathe.

Quarantining and Filtering the Mold

When our SERVPRO of Northeast Wichita professionals begin a mold remediation project step one is to block off the rest of the building from the mold. The visible mold is gross to look at but because mold releases microscopic spores into the air it can negatively affect people’s health when they breathe those spores.

Each job is different but in most cases our SERVPRO mold mitigation team will set up containment and create negative pressure with our air scrubber. This simply means that the mold spore infested air in the work area doesn’t migrate out of the contained area because air is being sucked into the affected area rather than being blown out.

Removing Materials Contaminated with Mold

Drywall, carpeting, ceiling tiles, and other organic materials are ideal footholds for mold when they are wet. Typically they must be removed in the mold remediation process especially when the mold has started to deteriorate them. This is why it is best to contact us immediately when a water damage occurs because it is much safer and cheaper to take care of a water problem than a mold problem. Removing these materials will cause the spores to be put in the air which is why we use containment, negative pressure, air scrubbers and pre-treatment methods before removing contaminated materials.

Stopping Mold from Reoccurring

Even though we have been remediating mold here in Wichita for nearly 20 years we cannot say for certain mold will never take hold again. Mold exists in non-significant amounts everywhere and if those spores find the right temperature, moisture and nutrient source there is always a chance mold may start growing again. Since we methodically follow industry guidelines on mold remediation we reduce the chances of that happening to as close to 0 as humanly possible.
