SERVPRO Performs Mold Inspection before Starting Remediation Determining the Best Course of Action

Black mold development in areas commonly exposed to moisture, such as the bathroom, can ruin the appearance of most surfaces, including regular or tiled wall surfaces, ceiling, and even the bathtub. The need for demolition in your Cheshire home may arise if the mold extends to the wall, floor, or ceiling cavities.

Since mold damage can affect Cheshire homes in a matter of days, it is possible for the growth you see to be restricted to the surfaces. Another reason the moldy matter may be restricted to the surface is if the underlying materials are non-organic. Our SERVPRO technicians help confirm the situation you face by probing how far the growth spreads. 

Mold inspection informs various other actions, including:

  • Black mold damage repairs 
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Mold remediation

Our SERVPRO professionals use different approaches to evaluate how far the mold spreads. A physical evaluation of the materials helps establish their physical state. Root-like mold hyphae penetrate deep into materials extracting nutrients. Such penetration causes physical deterioration of the affected materials. 

Apart from examining materials, our SERVPRO technicians also check beneath the surface. We use non-invasive approaches such as boring exploratory holes then using borescopes to examine the materials in the cavities. On establishing that the mold colonies are restricted to the surfaces, our technicians use professional-grade cleaning agents with antifungal properties. Physical agitation is another helpful alternative.

Various forms of agitation remove moldy materials, including:

  • Damp wiping 
  • Wire brushing 
  • HEPA vacuuming
  • Soda blasting
