Professional Mold Damage Remediation

Most of our basements have conditions that favor the development of mold damage. As far as there is a moisture source in the basement, then you should expect mold to grow. Given that most people do not frequently clean their basements, the dust can also help mold growth. Let us start by looking at the causes of mold and how to restore your Gunnison property after such an experience.

Another cause of mold damage in most basements in Gunnison is the cold temperatures and higher humidity that lead to condensation. When condensation occurs, moisture collects on cold concrete basement floors, walls, and metal pipes. Mold can also form in basements as an aftermath of flooding. Even when other rooms easily dry after a flood, standing water always remains in these areas. Our SERVPRO team understands that musty smell in the basement is a sign that your basement has a mold problem.

Our SERVPRO technicians understand that mold does not necessarily grow in one area and as a result, we have to assess the level of the contamination. Such as assessment helps us to come up with an approach to clean up and remove the mold. During the cleanup process, we use minimum PPE (personal protective equipment) which includes the use of disposable gloves, eye protection, and an N-95 disposable respirator. Our team is trained in using appropriate PPE and follows the OSHA standards when working at the site.

When cleaning and removing the mold, some dust and mold spores may settle on the surface. To remove the residual spores, we perform HEPA vacuuming. These types of vacuums have HEPA filters that trap the residues and retain them within the vacuum. After that, we remove the filters and put them in plastic bags ready for disposal. To improve the quality of air, we perform deodorization with the aim of neutralizing the odor causing particles and in the process disinfect the contaminated surfaces and reduce chances of recurrence.
