Black Mold is No Match for SERVPRO in South Miami

One aspect that should get taken into account during mold remediation in South Miami properties is the envelope around the property. SERVPRO technicians inspect South Miami houses during mold damage to determine if the outside humidity conditions affect the interior of the home.

SERVPRO Mold Specialists Diagnose the Issue in the South Miami Home

This South Miami home developed a black mold infestation in the home due to a crack in the house's exterior wall. The vacant home created the perfect environment for mold spore germination, and once established, the black mold began to spread throughout the room.

Mold damage at this South Miami house resulted from a crack in the exterior wall of the house. The home was vacant and listed for sale, so the mold had considerable time to grow before it was discovered. The property owner brought in SERVPRO for mold inspections, remediations, and removal in the South Miami home.

First Actions by SERVPRO for Mold Remediation in South Miami

As soon as the property owner suspects a black mold infestation, the house got analyzed by a mold specialist confirming the black mold. And then SERVPRO was brought in for the black mold damage repairs in the South Miami home. The owner had the property listed for sale, and it could not be sold in that state until mold removal occurred. Containment is one of the first things SERVPRO technicians do when handling mold remediation in South Miami properties. This inhibits the potential to spread airborne spores to other home areas that are currently unaffected by the mold damage.

Black Mold Damage Repairs by SERVPRO

The exterior crack in the South Miami home allowed humid air to enter the home. Patching up the crack helped eliminate that issue contributing to the black mold problem in the South Miami property. Although the Before Photo shows a substantial amount of mold colony establishment on the walls of this South Miami home, SERVPRO dried the area and made it inhospitable to the continued existence of the black mold colonies on the sheetrock.

During mold remediation jobs such as this, SERVPRO frequently needs to remove the sheetrock from South Miami properties' walls. As the Before Photo shows, the black mold growth on the building materials was extensive. SERVPRO technicians performed black mold damage repairs by removing the colonies using proprietary compounds and sponges. This meant that the South Miami homeowner did not have to worry about replacing sheetrock or flooring.

The After Photo shows a South Miami room with gleaming white walls and a chevron-style wood flooring with absolutely no signs of the previous black mold damage that infested the home. When mold remediation services require that SERVPRO remove dried colony matter, the techs have access to different equipment types. The removal of the dried matter can happen from soda blasting, which uses baking soda as the delivery agent. Another common way to remove mold is through glass, ice, or sponge as the blasting agent.
