Mold Remediation How SERVPRO Handles Mold Damage On Your Coconut Grove Kitchen Wall Mold can spread really quickly throughout your home. Call SERVPRO at the first sign for assessment and remediation.

From Assessment to Remediation, Our Trained Technicians Eliminate the Mold Infestation in Your Home

Mold damage is a genuine risk for householders living in Miami. Florida has high levels of humidity, and as the spores love moist environments, our state is an ideal home for them. Mold can eat into soft materials, cause structural damage, and even bring about health problems. That is why we recommend putting in a call to SERVPRO at the first sign of fungal growth. Some signs to look out for include the telltale black spores, discolored patches, or a musty smell.
 
It is important to remediate mold damage on your Coconut Grove kitchen wall as soon as possible. After all, your kitchen is where you prepare food for your family so of course, you do not want mold growing there. Our professional remediation process includes removing existing colonies, preventing them spreading further throughout your home, and drying out the damaged area.
 
Your SERVPRO visit begins with a thorough assessment of your kitchen. In some cases this includes removing baseboards or molding to examine the insides of the wall – mold, unfortunately, likes drywall, so a check of the internal wall cavity is often needed.
 
Our IICRC-certified technicians use moisture meters and thermal imaging to examine the wall and ensure we focus only on damp areas where mold might be growing. We also check for hidden leaks such as from damaged pipes or faulty appliances. Isolating and removing the source of dampness is key to thorough remediation and helps control growth in the future.
 
Unfortunately, in cases where mold has damaged drywall, it often needs to be replaced. Your technician can advise you on what restoration work is necessary, and safely remove any drywall that cannot be saved.
 
The next step is to use plastic sheeting to seal off the area and ensure spores cannot travel further into your home. Now we have a safe working area and can focus on removing mold and drying out your kitchen walls.
 
Our teams come equipped with brushes, powerful HEPA vacuums, and cleaning solutions to scrub, clean and wipe away visible colonies. We also bring in air scrubbers: These use HEPA filtration to remove particles and spores as tiny as 0.3 microns from the air and reduce contamination.
 
The final step is to dry your kitchen wall and cavity thoroughly. We bring in commercial-grade air movers and dehumidifiers and set them up in a carefully calculated configuration for effective drying of the area.
