Coram Property Owners Trust SERVPRO for Mold Damage Restoration

Mold damage to your Coram home can lead to significant structural and aesthetic issues with your property if not mitigated promptly. Professional mold remediation services like SERVPRO have the necessary expertise, knowledge, and training to get the job done safely and effectively.  We follow the IICRC S520 mold remediation guidelines during the process to ensure the safety of occupants and technicians.   

SERVPRO techs pay special attention to prevent the spores from spreading to unaffected areas during the mitigation of mold damage to your Coram home. To achieve this, technicians often have to install containment barriers to control the movement of the airborne spores. We can use 6-mil poly sheeting attached to PVC pipes or structural entrances to isolate a targeted area.

Types of Containments That SERVPRO Techs Establish During Mold Remediation of your Coram home

The IICRC classifies containments into three categories-

  • Source containment: If the mold-affected area of your Coram home is small, restorers often use a source containment. It involves taping a 6-mil polyethylene bag on a moldy surface before removing it and bagging the mold for proper disposal.
  • Local “mini’ containment: According to the IICRC, such containments can be established when restorers expect a moderate level of mold. An enclosure using polyethylene sheeting, PVC pipes, and spring-loaded expansion poles is erected to separate the unaffected areas of the building from the mold-damaged areas. Technicians also use negative air machines (NAMs) during mini containments.
  • Full-scale containment: If the mold damage is extensive and can't be effectively controlled by source or local containment, the IICRC recommends full-scale containment. An entire room or a building section is designated as a work/containment area, and mold specialists establish critical barriers.
