Mold Damage Technicians In Pleasant Hill Describe The Importance Of Containment

If there is excessive moisture inside your home, mold damage can cause problems to organic building materials.

The Importance Of Containment

If a water leak or spill gets building materials wet and you do not notice the problem right away, many issues can negatively affect your Pleasant Hill property. If there is excessive moisture inside your home, mold damage can cause problems to organic building materials. Fungi can spread to several areas inside a structure and can cause health effects with some people. If not mitigated quickly, the mold damage can get worse and spread to sections of your home that are far away from the initial source.

Certain parts of a house are especially susceptible to microbial growth because they have the right temperature and contain a large number of organic materials such as wood or paper. Dark, confined spaces like attics are likely places to experience mold damage in Pleasant Hill. If you ever smell a musty aroma or see a fungus form, it is wise to call our SERVPRO experts immediately. We can show up promptly and help keep the problems from getting worse and help prevent spores from spreading.

A major problem when dealing with fungal issues is the fact that spores can become airborne and spread all over a structure very quickly. Our SERVPRO technicians are IICRC certified and have experience dealing with several different types of mold contamination situations. SERVPRO's main goal with any project is to mitigate the problems without causing contamination in areas that were previously unaffected.

The first thing we do to keep microbes from getting into the air and spreading is to build a containment chamber. A containment chamber is put up with metal poles and heavy-duty plastic. We use the plastic to seal off any areas that are contaminated inside your home. Once containment is put up, we often attach an air scrubber to a hole on the side to create negative air pressure inside the chamber.

The air scrubber sucks in dust and particles created by the work process. The scrubber pulls the air past a HEPA filter that traps in hazardous particles. If you ever notice the presence of a fungus inside your home, call SERVPRO of North Lilburn at (770) 709-3266 24 hours a day.
