Early Mold Remediation Reduces Tear-Out

Mold damage develops over days in a moist environment, creating a threatening situation for hosting materials and contents. The rapid response of SERVPRO remediators limits invasive methods when possible.

What is Used to Eliminate Mold?

Sporicidal agents are an important element of mold remediation for San Jose properties. When applied to surfaces impacted by infestations, these chemicals can destroy bacterial and fungal spores over a designated contact period. This has proven effective against common residential molds in the earliest stages of development.

How Long Can the Process Take?

Much of the contact time involved with removing surface mold with sporicidal agents relates to the concentration and severity of colonization. While the elimination of spores and the active organism can begin immediately, the full eradication of the colony could sometimes take hours. Agents also work as mold inhibitors preventing new colonization during cleanup and drying.

Agitation and Mechanical Action

Amplifying the effects of surface cleaning products typically involves abrasive motion. Using hand tools and small powered equipment, we can allow sporicidal products to penetrate beyond the surface to eradicate infestations and protect this hosting material. Mechanical actions like these often involve:

  • Brushing
  • Sanding
  • Scrubbing

Is This the Only Remediation Process Needed?

While surface cleaning can be highly effective in the right circumstances, it is often not the only mold removal technique necessary for residences. When more aggressive and abrasive measures might be needed to penetrate more deeply than the surface products, SERVPRO professionals look to equipment like dry ice and soda blasting units.

Surface cleaning is among the preferred methods of remediating active mold colonies but is far from the only solution needed when this damage overtakes your residence. Our SERVPRO of NE San Jose team works fast to contain the organisms and remove colonies. Call our rapid response team anytime at (408) 834-7663.
