Why are SERVPRO techs so effective in cleaning mold damage from Los Angeles homes? 

Professional restorers have several cleaning methods at their disposal to deal with mold damage to your Los Angeles home. However, the effectiveness and efficiency of the restoration depend on whether the chosen method is the best one for the given situation. 

With all the years of experience under their belt, the SERVPRO restorers develop a multi-faceted cleaning strategy to combat mold damage at your Los Angeles home. Rather than relying on a universal method, the SERVPRO mold specialists study your property's unique challenges and features before settling on a restoration plan.  

Common cleaning methods SERVPRO uses during mold remediation of your Los Angeles home.

SERVPRO techs follow the IICRC S520 mold remediation guidelines to restore your Los Angeles home. Some of the most common cleaning methods that IICRC recommends include-  

  • Air-based methods
  • Liquid-based methods
  • Abrasive methods
  • Encapsulation 

Air-based methods use a HEPA vacuum and a stream of air to blow mold spores and fragments off surfaces. It can create aerosolization of spores and mold fragments, but it is limited in its usefulness. Liquid-based methods are most common and involve using a detergent combined with a physical or mechanical cleaning process to dislodge the contamination. Abrasive methods include sanding, scraping, brushing, and abrasive media blasting.   

What is encapsulation? 

Encapsulation refers to applying a coating over porous and semi-porous surfaces from which contamination can't be fully removed. Shellac, varnish, or lacquer is most commonly used for encapsulation. SERVPRO techs use encapsulation only if IEP (Indoor Environmental Professional) advises of the procedure's usefulness.
