Stopping Recurring Mold Remediation in Fort Pierce Homes

Several Steps Thwart Repeated Mold Remediation 

Remediation is a recovery process that many Fort Pierce and Florida homes will experience in their lifetime with exposure to high humidity conditions, storm damage, and the ever-present possibilities of water damage. Our team must work to overcome this damage and keep it from happening again.

Remediating the Current Mold

Before mold remediation in Fort Pierce homes can prevent the recurrence of microbial threats, active colonization must be considered and overcome. There are multiple mold removal tactics our IICRC trained team uses, including:

  • Surface Treatment – We have multiple antimicrobial and sporicidal products in our inventory capable of eliminating surface mold damage on contact. 
  • Media Blasting – Involves using pressurized air or water (though, in some cases, water can amplify moist conditions) with media like bicarbonate of soda, corn cobs, walnuts, or dry ice. 
  • Sanding –Surface damage can benefit from hand or power sanding. Elements like wood framing use this technique to preserve the bulk of the material installed while eliminating a thin layer of penetrating mold.
  • Controlled Demolition – Controlled demolition is a safe last resort to eliminate present colonies from a residence when other remediation plans are not possible.

Repairing Structural Damage

Structural vulnerabilities are contributing factors to a continuous mold damage threat. Because our remediation team also comes with a general contractor license, we can help with the repairs and build-back services your home might require. Preventing mold from returning means replacing damaged materials, replacing compromised plumbing, and rebuilding structural vulnerabilities.

Assessing Moisture Penetration

Moisture is among the most influential factors in developing and prolonged support of active colonies. It is vital to address areas where water might intrude into the living space. Much like tracking moisture migration when drying a building, thermal imagery and moisture sensors can help show problem areas that require repair.

It is nearly as essential to have a plan to avoid the recurrences of mold development in your home or business. Addressing the root causes of these conditions and the environmental factors that facilitate colonies can help to keep your property safe from microbial threats.
