Remediating Means Choosing Cost-Effective Solutions for Alum Rock Properties

Mold can become a catastrophic event for homes and businesses alike. The remediation and recovery of these disasters incorporate dozens of practices, from indoor air quality improvement to eliminating active, threatening mold and fungal spores in the environment. It is vital to complete this mold removal as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

What Makes Drywall a Sensitive Material?

The drywall is among the main materials in need of mold remediation in Alum Rock homes after exposure. Organic gypsum board has a high porosity, making it ideal for migrating mold spores to move beyond surface formations to begin colonies that impact the structural integrity of the installation. Similarly, drywall can be greatly influenced by water being so highly absorbent, so the surface is a magnet for mold spores seeking specific conditions to facilitate colonies.

Deterioration and Damage

Drywall can quickly become ruined by the presence of mold. As colonies continue to use organic matter as a food source, the sheetrock becomes less and less likely to be protected and saved through later remediation methods. It is up to our SERVPRO team responding to the emergency to evaluate the salvageability of the material.

The Cost of Drying and Remediation

Much like water restoration, remediation methods require dozens of pressing questions to be answered regarding how to proceed with sensitive materials. Our SERVPRO professionals need to choose the most cost-efficient and overall least-invasive recovery methods whenever possible. We consider the wishes of the customer as we seek to answer four critical, time-sensitive questions:

  • Is the drywall worth preserving?
  • Is it cost-effective to dry and remediate?
  • Is replacement faster?
