Learn to Salvage Your Items During Mold Damage in Bergen County
Rely on SERVPRO for Expert Mold Remediation Services
Apart from causing health effects, mold damage can negatively impact the quality of air and permanently damage your contents. If you suspect this kind of damage on your Bergen County property, we advise you to seek professional help. The remediation process demands that those performing the restoration work wear protective gear and employ techniques that prevent spreading the contamination.
If you decide to work with our SERVPRO technicians after experiencing mold damage in Bergen County, we document every condition and devise appropriate remediation procedures before the restoration work begins. Since moisture is the primary cause of fungi and bacterial growth, we use moisture meters to measure the level of saturation. We also check on the degree of contamination and plan to return your property to its preloss state. Stopping the source of the water is also necessary at this stage.
We may use limited or full containment measures to prevent spores from spreading. These might include keeping the room under negative pressure, ensuring HVAC vents are not running and introducing plastic sheeting to act as containment barriers. At this point, we are ready to remove the contamination either by physically moving the affected items or using specialized cleaning methods.
Our SERVPRO technicians can decide to perform wet vacuuming to collect any stagnant water. When cleaning hard surfaces, we can perform damp wiping or scrub with a detergent and water. When cleaning, we may opt to discard porous materials that have mold contamination such as insulation, ceiling tiles, and papers. High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuuming may come in as one of the final cleanup procedures. HEPA filters can entrap mold spores and dust, which might have settled in areas within and outside the site. We usually place any unsalvageable contaminated materials that we collect when cleaning in sealable plastic bags and then discard them off as waste.
