Mold Damage Removal

Remediating the effects of mold and removing of infested material in Bel Air is not an easy process. It takes a professional, restoration service to clean and clear out each home properly.

Since our environment is more warm and dry compared to other areas, most homeowners do not associate mold damage with Bel Air. Since mold spores need just a small amount of moisture to expand and thrive in a temperature range of 68 to 86 degrees, SERVPRO understands just how quickly mold grows and how to stop it.

Our most efficient method is to block the source of moisture. Inside a home, this is usually a leaky pipe, faucet or an older hose connected to a washer or other appliance that is starting to deteriorate. Our technicians can repair these issues in just an hour or two. Once they complete repairs, it is only a matter of a few more hours to dry up and remove any water. With no moisture, mold spores return to a dormant state in two or three days. At this point, we can wipe away the mold just like the dust on top of a refrigerator.

If the mold has grown in building material like drywall, SERVPRO recommends removal. Trying to cut away sections of a panel is time-consuming, and the cost of labor quickly surpasses the cost of simply buying and installing new drywall.

After we remove infested building property, our technicians examine the rest of the home, everything from the foundation to the roof. If the mold has worked its way into support columns and beams, we try to use a series of anti-microbial cleaners to clear out the infestation. If we cannot or if the mold has already compromised the wood, we remove and replace it. SERVPRO uses temporary support columns, floor jacks and other tools to keep the roof and walls in place as we finish this task.

Cleaning out the mold and restoring your home is not a quick process, but hiring the right service can make it much less painful and expensive. If you need our help or have a question about what we can do for you, contact SERVPRO of Bel Air / West Hollywood at (310) 572-6132 today.
