Mold Prevention in Citrus Heights
Mold Prevention in your Home or Business
Mold Damage Remediation is not something you should try yourself, especially if the damage is occurring at your business. Restaurant owners and managers should take particular caution when commercial health code standards are as strictly enforced as they are in Citrus Heights. Spores are always in the air and on top of surfaces indoors, and you, your staff, and your customers also carry them into your eating establishment on clothing and footwear. Simply reacting each time you note some mildew or mold is ineffective.
Let's develop a plan
Invite us to work with you to design a mold remediation plan that manages a current outbreak while also minimizing the chance of mold damage in the future. In most cases, the contamination can be isolated to a single room or area of the business, apartment or single family home. If the mold has grown into or started in the HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system, then certain steps must be taken to keep mold from spreading further.
Let us handle everything
SERVPRO crews use a protocol approved by the EPA to manage mold damage effectively. Expect a three prong attack on mold damage.
- First, we find and contain all evident mold colonies. Other areas of your business need not close down in most cases. We keep uncontaminated spaces mold-free by misting the existing mold to prevent it from floating through the air, erecting physical barriers, or using negative air pressure machines during clean up.
- Second, the mold is removed completely, including porous items it infiltrated. We encase and dispose of the actual mold colonies according to codes local to the Roseville, Sacramento, and Citrus Heights areas.
- Third, spores stirred up settle and we wipe them down with a detergent solution or vacuum up using HEPA filters. Once the mold damage is removed and areas cleaned, the final step is to eradicate the moisture problem that fed the spores. SERVPRO staff will inspect for plumbing leaks, clogs in HVAC drainage systems, condensation around AC units or refrigerators, and other sources of water. Abatement of the water problems is the best protection against future mold damage. We test for moisture levels and reduce air humidity levels using ventilation, dehumidifiers, or a combination of strategies.
