It can be distressing to watch your home deteriorate from mold infestation. You might also be worried since mold exposure may cause health effects. If you are afraid of immediate recurrence or have challenges with common remediation approaches like cleaning up the affected areas and removing moldy materials, it may be possible to try alternative approaches.

The alternative mold remediation approaches Oakland homeowners can try may involve using unique products or changing the methods of applying regular antimicrobial products to improve their efficiency. Antimicrobial products kill mold spores through physical contact, and therefore any methods that enhance contact can deliver better results. Some of the unique approaches our SERVPRO technicians utilize include:

  • Using paints to suppress odor and halt mold growth
  • Applying antimicrobial products using foggers
  • Removing airborne residues using air scrubbers
  • Containment--securing the work area to prevent cross-contamination of spores or particles

When cleaning moldy surfaces, spores and mold residues are easily released into the air spreading the problem further. Air scrubbers with HEPA filters can help remove the residues. Our SERVPRO technicians also use thermal or ULV foggers, which atomize antimicrobial solutions, thus ensuring sufficient penetration into affected materials.

SERVPRO of West Oakland is committed to providing satisfying mold remediation. Call us at (510) 599-9300 when you need assistance.
