Cocoa Beach, FL Mold Damage Remediation
Identifying Mold Threats in Your Cocoa Beach Home
It is not uncommon for Cocoa Beach homeowners and business owners to deal with the development of mold colonies in their property. Higher humidity conditions combined with multiple other factors can allow for the facilitation of these considerable threats. When these colonies begin in areas like structural cavities behind drywall, however, it could take weeks before you notice the emergence of colonies to the surface. High-traffic structures can often make identifying mold even more challenging, such as the Ocean Landings Resort or Health First's Cape Canaveral Hospital.
When you suspect mold growth, environmental testing can often be a more definitive approach to learning of the presence of fungal colonization than allowing the situation to worsen. As a leading mold remediation company in Brevard County, our SERVPRO of Central Brevard team can help with efficient remediation when mold gets discovered in your home or office.
Remediation Strategies to Remove Active Colonization in Cocoa Beach Homes
With more than 12,000 residents along the coast, we have many homes to protect from mold colonization and subsequent structural deterioration. Between venues for the Surfside Players and Stonewood Towers or Sandcastles Resort for condominiums, commercial properties also require immediate action when mold colonies exist. Remediation is a combination of several approaches happening simultaneously that vary on the impacted materials. Ideally, our SERVPRO team works to remove the organism's entire hyphae through practices like soda blasting and sanding rather than controlled demolition whenever possible.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (321) 638-4947
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of Central Brevard will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Cocoa Beach, FL home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
