Mold Containment in Damaged San Antonio Homes

With microbial or fungal growth, as alarming as this might be for San Antonio homeowners, the best solution is to act quickly. Securing the right professionals to remove an active colony ensures that the entire organism gets removed as it should. It also can help to make certain the appropriate measures get taken to prevent recurrences in the immediate future. This effective strategy begins with containment solutions designed to prevent the active spores from moving to new areas of your home and colonizing.

Once you have discovered mold damage in your San Antonio residence, you can often trust that the situation is worse than what you can see with your eyes. Our SERVPRO professionals can arrive quickly at the discovery of mold to help identify the full spread of the organism and to begin installing the containment barriers and setting up equipment designed to prevent their spread to new areas of your house. Containment helps to make remediation much faster and effective.

With a significant spread of damage throughout the property, removal is often the most effective solution to take care of active colonization in areas of your home. Our SERVPRO professionals can utilize controlled demolition techniques within the containment area to not only prevent the spread of debris and dust but keep any circulating spores within the thick plastic sheeting installed around the area.

Additionally, we can use several tools to help purify the air and reduce the volume of active spores through this affected area of your home. Our air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators both work to pull particulates, dust, debris, and even mold spores from the air and trap them in a filter. We allow these machines to run for extended periods, even sometimes outside of the containment areas to improve the quality of the indoor air before environmental testing occurs to determine the effectiveness of our mold removal.

Should you discover mold growth in your home, you might not immediately know what you should do. To prevent unnecessary tear out and reconstruction, call our experienced SERVPRO of Braun Station remediation technicians as soon as possible at (210) 267-2159.
