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

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because it’s impossible to remove all mold from a house or business; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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

We’re available 24 hours, 7 days a week to answer your phone call. Our consultant will guide you through this process, asking questions that will allow us to better understand your situation and to determine the needed equipment and personnel.

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off 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

Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.

Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing

SERVPRO of Central Palm Beach will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are 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.
