Advanced Strategies for Mold Colony Removal in Oakland Homes

Mold colonization can be a dangerous and threatening situation for Oakland homes, especially when the situation goes unchecked and unresolved. While you might not necessarily believe that you need the services of professional mold remediation technicians like our SERVPRO team, there are many reasons that you might reconsider. The first of these is how quickly this situation can get out of control if allowed to grow and spread unabated. Without addressing the underlying cause of the colonies, they can continue to grow and thrive unchallenged.

Our SERVPRO professionals have advanced training and education in the remediation of mold damage for Oakland homes through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC.) This continual coursework ensures that we can provide our customers with technicians that have the confidence and expertise to address even widespread mold concerns immediately. Once we have arrived at your address, we can begin by assessing the full scope of the damage and working with our production management leadership to determine the best recovery solution for the property.

Our strategies for colony removal vary depending on the material hosting an organism and where the mold has gotten discovered within the property. How severe this colonization has become also plays a role in the best solution for removing it. Lighter presences, for example, can often get remedied by the application of our efficient antimicrobial spray. This product can kill off the spores spreading within the material, effectively starving out the entire hyphae and eliminating the organism. 

The remediation professionals of our SERVPRO team also have effective strategies for removing more deeply rooted organisms spreading throughout your property. Sandblasting, hand sanding, soda blasting, and media blasting are all sound strategies to eliminate growing mold colonies without overly compromising the substrate. Protecting installed construction materials is a focal point of our Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians, as we have a ‘restore before replace’ mentality. Even though we have a full-service contracting division (#937457) that can conquer any build back necessary for a mold-damaged property, we choose to protect original structural elements whenever possible.

No matter how widespread and detrimental mold growth can be in your home, you can always count on the experienced and educated remediation specialists of our SERVPRO of San Leandro team. We can make any mold colonization and subsequent damage “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime at (510) 352-2480.
