Effective Ways Of Dealing With Mold Damage In Canoga Park

If you let mold to grow in your Canoga Park home, it is likely to be a great nuisance. In addition to from the unsightly patches it leaves on perfectly finished surfaces, mold also produces a musty smell. Although these two are the most visible signs of mold infestation, it damages the property in other severe ways. If left to grow unabated for long, mold can eat into organic materials such as wood compromising their structural integrity. We offer professional remediation services to help restore your home to preloss state.

Before trying to fix mold damage in Canoga Park, it is essential to know the cause. All cases of mold infestation involve excess moisture, so it is essential to identify the moisture source if it is not apparent. In many cases, leaking plumbing lines or fixtures provide the necessary moisture to fuel growth. Other cases may involve relatively high levels of humidity in the house. Our SERVPRO technicians check infestation patterns and use advanced equipment such as thermal cameras to identify the moisture sources in confined spaces.

Several approaches can help remove mold from the affected property. The best approaches are those that are not too labor-intensive, produce long-term results and cause limited or no damages to the underlying materials. Our SERVPRO technicians use various advanced procedures like dry ice blasting which is highly effective in removing embedded mold from OSB, wood studs and plywood among other surfaces. We also use soda blasting which is equally useful on many surfaces without causing abrasion or any other type of damage.

Mold can cause health effects especially through inhalation of contact with the residues. It is therefore essential to protect people from the debris during the removal processes. Our SERVPRO technicians create containment barriers with plastic sheets to prevent mold residues from spreading. Containing the residues only in the affected areas also reduces the necessary cleanup efforts.
