Attic Mold Removal and Remediation in San Jose Homes

8/23/2022 (Permalink)

SERVPRO logo Mold removal for your home is a job for SERVPRO. Our technicians have the training and experience needed for your property.

Challenges of Confined Space Mold Removal

From severe weather to leaking air conditioning units stored in the attic space, a property's upper level can experience water damage and subsequent mold growth without your knowledge. When you suspect mold is present in your home, you can count on the fast and knowledgeable response of our SERVPRO professionals.

Assessing the Severity of Infestation

The earliest aspect of mold removal for San Jose homes, especially in the attic, is removing moisture and dampness. Water in the environment or moist surfaces is a stimulant to mold colonization. With water damage resolved, we can then assess the condition of the property and the appropriate remediation response based on the severity of the present organisms.

Confined Space Equipment

The added challenges of removing mold from an attic are mostly attributed to the smaller available space. While some homes have more extensive attics that mimic an additional floor or finished areas, many attics are only half the height of traditional living spaces, making restoration and remediation more complicated. It is pertinent to work as fast as possible to regulate the moisture and dampness of the room while addressing mold colonies. Tools used in this confined area include:

  • Low-profile air movers
  • HEPA air scrubbers
  • Hosing from desiccant dehumidifiers
  • Portable sporicidal agents

Repairs Necessary in the Attic

Because we also have a general contractor license for our roster to complete many of the build-back needs your property might have, there is no delay in transitioning from remediation to reconstruction. Long contact times with mold colonies can compromise organic building materials like roof underlayment, wood framing, trusses, and more. We assess these damages and provide demolition and replacement as needed.

It can be challenging to remove when mold is present in areas like the attic. Not only is this a confined space in many of the city's properties, but it can allow the spread of these organisms into the main living space when the infestation gets out of control. SERVPRO of NE San Jose can help. Give our remediators a call today at (408) 834-7663.
