Remediation Strategies Seek to Avoid Tear-Out in Falmouth Properties. 

With the swift response of our SERVPRO team, we can often avoid the full spread and severity of mold loss incidents. Mold inspections can often determine where specific removal tactics are necessary, the affected and damaged contents, and how more aggressive approaches or even controlled demolition could also be needed.

Aggressive Cleaning and Deep Remediation Options

Mold remediation in Falmouth homes can often occur in multiple ways. While surface treatment options are among the first attempts at removing mold colonies, more aggressive and abrasive tactics are often necessary, such as:

  • Sanding – Among the more aggressive tactics available for removing mold and microbial threats is sanding. This abrasive tactic can affect hosting materials just beyond their surface layers. 
  • Media Blasting – When the air gets combined with specific materials like baking soda, dry ice pellets, or other products, more of the organism's hyphae can be removed. 
  • Abrasive Cleaning - Using tools like stiff-bristled brushes or even steel wool in conjunction with wet cleaning solutions, we can reduce the impact of mold on contents and building materials. 

When Controlled Demolition is Necessary 

When mold damage occurs, repairs and reconstruction are not always required. When controlled demolition is deemed necessary to clear out materials too badly damaged by present mold threats, we have a general contractor license to complete this work without requiring a secondary building contractor. 

Mold is one of the underestimated threats to area homes and businesses, but one that our SERVPRO of Upper Cape Cod and The Islands team is prepared to help you face. We have skilled professionals accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to help with remediation and secondary needs like build-back or repairs. Give us a call today at (508) 548-1011.
