Palm Beach, FL Mold Damage Remediation

Historic properties abound in the area, like the Phipps Plaza District or the Flagler Museum, making mold removal and remediation critical when it exists. With thousands depending on our fast response in Palm Beach County, our remediators can help with many recovery steps like: 

  • Antimicrobial cleaning
  • Mold inspections
  • Mold removal techniques
  • Water/moisture management
  • Attic mold removal

Is Containment Helpful for Effective Remediation? 

Because we prioritize containment when we first begin to work in mold-damaged homes, we can prevent the spread of spores to new areas. Using physical plastic sheet barriers made with polypropylene and wood framing, we can amplify airflow, drying, and manage humidity with these constructed systems. 

What Remediation Approach Works Best in Palm Beach Properties?

There is no one-size-fits-all remediation strategy for damaged homes and businesses. When mold damage threatens structural integrity or compromises contents, mold removal decisions get made on a case-by-case basis. The objective is to utilize surface cleaning with antimicrobial and biocide products as much as possible over more aggressive removal tactics like controlled demolition or media blasting. 

Overcoming Musty Mold Malodors in Palm Beach Homes

One of the common traits of mold damage is a musty odor in the affected areas. Often, homeowners can use this formidable smell to indicate that active colonization exists. After remediation, this smell can persist, requiring advanced deodorization tactics by our SERVPRO professionals. 

Our main service page focuses on mold remediation, cleanup, and repairs.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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 - (561) 532-2770

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

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Palm Beach, FL home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems to prevent the spread of mold.

Step 4: Air Filtration

Our specialized filtration equipment allows our professionals to capture microscopic mold spores out of the air. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process. 

Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. We’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. It may be necessary to remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and carpeting, to remediate heavy mold growth.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re 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 Palm 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.
