Why SERVPRO is the Wise Choice for Mold Damage Remediation in Oxnard
When mold growth becomes a concern in your Oxnard residence, it can be tempting to try to manage the problem yourself. Mold damage can feel like you are not in control of the fundamentals of home ownership. Many times homeowners feel that mold colonies are evidence of inadequate maintenance or cleaning. In most cases, this notion could not be further from the truth. Our training and expertise in remediation help you understand why our professional services are crucial.
Learning the truth about mold damage in Oxnard from remediation experts clarifies what a homeowner can do to limit the chance that mold growth recurs. Our microbial abatement technicians complete a comprehensive course underwritten by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. The pervasiveness of mold spores is understood to be a given in homes and outdoors. Instead of an attempt to reduce mold spores as a remediation strategy, our team works with property owners to minimize the excess moisture that activates spores instead.
SERVPRO avoids the use of diluted bleach or other over-the-counter methods to remediate mold growth. Household bleach is already mostly water, and diluting it increases the risk that its use as an antimicrobial might actually increase mold damage. The active ingredient rarely penetrates deeply enough into porous building materials to kill all parts of the mold. It might lighten a residual mold stain, does not remove the entire organism.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) developed a mold remediation protocol our team follows. Adherence to this effective procedure is why SERVPRO delivers a reliable result when we take on your mold damage project. Instead of using broadcast antimicrobial treatments on their own we work in each mold case to locate the extent of the mold growth, contain it within a manageable area, and remove and properly dispose of the mold material.
Our mold removal techniques are straightforward -- brushing or scraping off the growth or using gently abrasive techniques like soda blasting that removes the mold and its intricate hair-like hyphae “roots” from even porous materials. Mechanical removal is why SERVPRO mold remediation is successful as long as efforts are made to limit moisture from saturating the materials again.
Our research-based approach is why SERVPRO of Oxnard delivers successful outcomes on mold remediation projects. Call us at (805) 984-2347 to set up a consultation to remove current mold and avoid its resurgence.
