Managing Mould

When there’s a water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line, mold can quickly become a problem in your home or business. Mold can cause health effects and can also cause significant damage to your property. Fortunately, professionals at SERVPRO® of Burlington East have the training, protective gear, and specialized equipment necessary to handle your mold problem. Although every mold damage scenario is different requiring a unique solution, the general mold remediation process stays the same. The following steps illustrate a “typical” mold removal process.

The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. A representative will ask a series of questions to help determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed. Your property will be carefully inspected for signs of mold using technology designed to detect mold and hidden water sources. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view.

Mold Containment

Various containment procedures will be placed to prevent the spread of mold and isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process.

Air Filtration

Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air. SERVPRO® of Burlington East technicians utilize powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in progress.

Removing Mold & Mold-Infested Materials

The mold remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears. Antifungal and antimicrobial treatments will be used to eliminate mold colonies and help prevent new colonies from forming. Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, like drywall and flooring, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.

Restoration

Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.

SERVPRO® of Burlington East's professionals understand mold and mold growth and have the training and equipment to remediate mold in your home or business.

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) encourages cleaning of high-touch surfaces in all public spaces.

Other spaces likely to fall under the PHAC’s guidance for commercial spaces include:

COVID-19

virus COVID-19 We are here to help!

We are promoting DISINFECTION. Call us today to get more information on our services 289-313-8888

As the spread of COVID-19 continues to affect us domestically, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sift through the noise to find the facts. Our team at SERVPRO of Burlington East is working diligently to gather and share this information to ensure our customers have solutions. 

While we recommend that everyone follow the guidelines set out by Health Canada, Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), this message is to let you know that we have been using and are stocking Benefect Decon 30 which is a Health Canada registered hospital grade disinfectant.

Because COVID-19 is new, there is currently no government-registered disinfectant products that have been tested against this strain and no product labels have these specific kill claims.

Some good news is that Coronaviruses such as COVID-19 are enveloped viruses, meaning they are one of the easiest viruses to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) state that if an antimicrobial product can kill a small, non-enveloped virus it should be able to kill any enveloped virus.

The CDC recommends routine cleaning and disinfection procedures (e.g., using cleaners and water to pre-clean surfaces prior to applying a government-registered, hospital-grade disinfectant to frequently touched surfaces or objects for appropriate contact times as indicated on the product’s label) are appropriate for COVID-19 in healthcare settings.
