Cocoa Mold Removal in Home by SERVPRO

The need for mold remediation in a Central Brevard home occurred after the homeowner discovered visible mold damage around the living room window and brought in SERVPRO for mitigation. Mold remediation is something local Cocoa property owners should not undertake on their own. The presence of mold can cause health effects, and in some cases, SERVPRO mold specialists will need to tackle black mold damage repairs when the problem has gone unnoticed for a time and allowed to spread.

SERVPRO Conducts Mold Inspection to Determine the Scale of Spread in Cocoa Homes

The SERVPRO techs do a detailed mold inspection around the Central Brevard living room window where the mold was visible. They found evidence of mold colonies within the structure and removed both the sheetrock and insulation. When SERVPRO techs need to perform controlled demo actions, they put up containment around the doorways and vents and carefully cover nearby furnishings to ensure that they do not get affected by the dust or airborne mold spores. It is safe to assume the insulation within the wall cavity in the Central Brevard property had contamination from being in the presence of black mold and long-term water damage. SERVPRO techs have specific equipment made for the safe collection of damn insulation through the use of a hand vacuum with HEPA filtration, and a bag fitted to capture and seal away the insulation to halt the prospect of cross-contamination and the need to mold remediation in other areas of the Central Brevard property.

Fortunately for this Central Brevard homeowner, even though the wall had wallpaper on it, the mold colonies had not spread too far away from the window. SERVPRO techs found they only needed to remove a minimal portion of the wall around the window. The floors, ceilings, and the nearby fireplace were unaffected by the mold infestation.

Air Quality is Crucial During Cocoa Mold Remediation by SERVPRO

The techs at SERVPRO know that airborne mold spores can cause issues in other areas of the Central Brevard home, so along with containment during mold remediation jobs, they use equipment such as air scrubbers.

The mold specialists at SERVPRO rely on this type of equipment during mold removal jobs in Central Brevard properties because they are so reliable in performance. Air scrubbers work by capturing airborne particulate, including soot and mold spores, and trapping them in a labyrinth of HEPA filtration.

As the Before Photo shows, SERVPRO technicians only removed the minimum of the building materials during the mold remediation in the Central Brevard home. This action limits the amount of black mold damage repairs the structure needs when the mold specialists complete the mitigation.

Final Steps by SERVPRO in Central Brevard Mold Remediation

The After Photo shows no signs of the previous mold infestation in this Cocoa home. The homeowner took the opportunity to update the interior decor with fresh primer and paint on the walls instead of the previous wallpaper when it was time to rebuild post-mold remediation by SERVPRO.
