Mold Removal and Prevention Techniques for Baldwin Park Homeowners

Homeowners in Baldwin Park who find moldy areas of their residence often want to avoid the problem in the future. SERVPRO technicians can help protect your property from developing more severe problems from overgrowing microbes. 

When a home in Baldwin Park develops mold, removal and prevention techniques can help keep the property healthy. Mold can cause health effects when left growing, so remediation and prevention becomes an essential and crucial method of protecting your family. 

SERVPRO specialists hold certificates from the IICRC and know the most effective methods to remove mold from your home. These also prove to be the most cost-effective ways to prevent mold from regrowing. 

Locating the water used by microbes means we can shut it off and prevent mold from remaining hydrated. Once mold dries out, it becomes dormant and quits growing. Water sources can include cracks in slab foundations over saturated soils, leaking plumbing, fixtures, or appliances, past overflows, or breaks in shower and tub surrounds that allow water to escape. When the water source is from a one-time event, we direct our efforts immediately on eliminating the remaining moisture. When continued water loss occurs, we repair the troublesome situation. 

Removing the mold happens with scraping, blasting, or removal of materials. We choose the appropriate method according to the amount of damage and which material shows infestation activity. After we finish, we move forward with preventative techniques. 

These include discussing how to alleviate situations that involve ongoing structural deficits like damp slabs and other areas that continue to produce moisture. A dehumidifier might suffice, or we can help you locate a certified and licensed contractor with experience in making these kinds of repairs. We also treat the areas affected by mold after we remove existing infestations with a very effective antimicrobial agent that not only kills any newly deposited spores but continues to make the surface inhospitable to any new ones that find their way to the treated location. 

SERVPRO of Irwindale / Baldwin Park can help you protect your home and family with competent mold removal specialists. Making everything “Like it never even happened.” is one way we serve our community and make it stronger. Call us at our 24-hour service line, (626) 337-3374, 365 days a year.
