Mold growth may be the slowest disaster to affect an Ormond Beach home, but it can also go unnoticed for months.

Cleaning And Removing Mold Damage To Ormond Beach Homes

Mold growth may be the slowest disaster to affect an Ormond Beach home, but it can also go unnoticed for months. Active mold growths cause millions of dollars in damages each year.

Because mold moves slowly, many homeowners do not think it is a serious problem. The only permanent way to stop mold is to bring in a professional service to find its source, eliminate further growth, and remove active spores. To keep mold from returning, SERVPRO is ready with the latest tools and methods.

First, team members find the moisture that helped the mold to expand and grow. Finding it also means finding where the growth started and then our technicians follow it from there to determine the extent of the problem. If they cannot find the moisture source, team members use air content monitors to find the highest concentration of spores in the air which usually directs us to the source of the moisture.

Now, technicians stop and dry the source. In a home, that is often a tiny puddle of standing water. It usually results from a leaky pipe or a slow drip from the attic. With no moisture source, active spores quickly return to an inert state which prevents new damage. If there is minor damage like a cracked pipe or split line, SERVPRO team members can repair it.

With further growth halted, technicians remove the mold. They can remove a majority of it with sponges, brushes, and cleaning agents that contain an anti-fungal chemical to destroy the growth. If the mold had time to extend hyphae that dig into a food source like drywall paneling, team members remove the panels, break them down for removal, and then dispose of them. If the mold grew into a carpet in a laundry room or a finished garage, our teams dispose of that since we cannot guarantee 100% that cleaning efforts eliminate all mold spores.

For large items like curtains, drapes, and removable upholstery, technicians can use spray bottles to apply cleaning chemicals and then remove the mold with brushes. If these items contain heavy amounts of mold, team members can bring them to our facility and clean in our commercial washers designed to break down and remove mold without causing further damage.

Removing mold is not a simple process. At SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach, our goal is to return you to your residence as quickly as possible, while carefully taking you through each step. If you need our expertise, call us at (386) 677-9993 today. We are here for you.
