Handling Mold-Damaged Structural Assemblies in Camillus Homes

Removing mold colonies from your Camillus home is not as straightforward as you might think, and requires detailed planning and specific intricate techniques to limit excessive material removal. As challenging as remediation might be, we have many field technicians with both experience and extensive training in this restoration niche. With accreditations from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT), our professionals have an understanding of the best strategies and techniques to use in area homes.

A common misconception about damage when starting mold remediation in Camillus homes is that the colonies only exist where they are visible. With full structural assemblies pulling multiple layers of organic building materials together to form dividing walls, separation of floor and ceiling, or interior to exterior surfaces, many materials stand to become affected by migrating microbial threats.

Careful examination of the damaged and affected areas, including the use of surface and penetrating moisture meters, can give a good indication of what layers and levels of these structural assemblies have become habitable, if not already a supporting surface, to a mold colony. After our SERVPRO team has established containment barriers, we can begin with controlled demolition for surface materials like drywall, as severe mold colonization on these structural elements is not cost-effective to attempt to restore.

Uncovering structural framework, joists, and subflooring are all areas where our professionals work to remove the mold colony presence without damaging the material substrate. Abrasive cleaning techniques like soda blasting and sanding can have a positive effect. However, light colonization to spotting in the early stages of mold formation can often get resolved with the application of our antimicrobial agents.

With so many layers that make up almost every structural surface in your home, mold growth is seldom exclusively a threat on the surface where you can see. Our SERVPRO of SW Onondaga County can work to identify the spread and presence of these damaging organisms to help remove these colonies from the house. We can make mold losses “Like it never even happened,” by calling (315) 488-3900.
