SERVPRO Is a South Miami Mold Damage Specialist for Affected Homes and Businesses

Because of the relentless high humidity found in South Miami, mold damage is a constant concern for residents and business owners. Elegant homes and downtown commercial spaces with historical significance grace our community, but these stately buildings frequently battle the scourge brought when endemic mold spores find and absorb moisture. Mold damage can become tricky to manage, but the path to a sustainable solution reveals when property owners partner with a reputable remediation company.

How Can SERVPRO Help Solve Mold Damage Recurrence for South Miami Property Owners?

It is essential to understand that microscopic fungal spores are always in the air and on surfaces. No company can deliver on a promise to eliminate mold damage in South Miami. Instead, SERVPRO invests in training from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to certify our crew members as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT). The workers we send to evaluate your mold damage infestation are well-versed in strategies that safely remove current mold damage and inhibit the mold rebound effect often seen after inadequate interventions.

Why Is Finding and Dealing with Water Damage the Key to Successful Mold Remediation in South Miami?

Unless professionals address the underlying water damage issues and lingering moisture on your premises, mold damage will revisit and continue the deterioration of the organic building materials molds use as nourishment and living environments. SERVPRO technicians are uniquely qualified to see the whole picture of mold damage in your residence or business. We are also highly skilled in water migration tracing and moisture removal, and structural drying. Achieving a desirable mold damage remediation outcome requires the elimination of the water leaks, seepage, or high humidity levels, causing the spores to germinate and multiply. SERVPRO can offer this foundational service to support mold damage remediation efforts.

What Steps Does SERVPRO Take to Remediate Mold Damage After Management of Lingering Moisture?

Rather than using watery, diluted bleach solutions or relying solely on the broadcast application of antimicrobials, SERVPRO follows the remediation protocols of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This multi-step process restores your property to a condition without active colonies and then uses preventative measures to inhibit further growth of spores.  

  • Wearing of personal protective equipment (PPE) by technicians for their safety and avoiding tracking of spores or debris into unaffected spaces 
  • Location of active colonies, including in building cavities, using sensitive testing devices if needed
  • Containment of the remediation work area, wrapping with heavy-duty polypropylene barriers while employing negative pressure air scrubbing equipment to prevent debris drift and exhaust the contaminated atmosphere through HEPA filters
  • Removal of mold damage mechanically, using brushes, scrapers, and, for porous materials, gentle abrasion with soda, dry ice, and corn to incapacitate deeply embedded hyphae (root-like mold growth) 
  • Wipe down and vacuuming of mold damage debris 
  • Application of EPA-registered antimicrobials to inhibit the regrowth of mold
