Mold restoration is one of the most important skills water damage specialists offer. Fungal growth is a common problem left behind by floods and leaky pipes, but it can also show up if the home has poor insulation. Water can infiltrate the home from nearly any angle, entering through the roof, windows or even through the walls of the basement. Once fungal growth begins, it will spread quickly through the home, damaging any surface it infests and causing health problems in anyone exposed to its spores.
For this reason, prevention and thorough removal should be top priorities. JP Moore can provide support with mold restoration and prevention. In most cases, JP Moore will provide remediation as part of a water damage cleanup package as floods and plumbing problems usually produce the worst infestations.
During mold restoration, JP Moore will contain the infected area using negative air machines. These provide negative air pressure, keeping the spores out of the home’s ventilation system and out of other rooms. JP Moore will examine the areas suspected of fungal growth, which is normally around flooded areas, bathrooms, windows, roofing and plumbing. Technicians will also inspect the home’s vents because mold spores can root inside ducting.
JP Moore will physically remove any infested surfaces, double bagging them in gooseneck bags designed to trap any material put inside. Once there are no more visual signs of fungal growth, JP Moore will apply several layers of powerful anti-microbial solutions, killing off anything left. HEPA certified vacuums are then pushed through the area to suck up any debris and a sealer finishes off the job. The negative air machines are left in place for several days to maintain a sealed environment. Once the mold has been removed, JP Moore’s team will work to restore any damage done by the infestation.
