As a Largo homeowner or business owner, finding mold on your property can be a stressful and concerning experience, but it is not uncommon for the humid Florida climate. Mold growth can cause structural damage and pose health risks to occupants. That's why it's essential to hire a licensed Florida mold assessor to assess the extent of the damage and recommend remediation services when the job is big enough to require it.

Although we do not conduct assessments ourselves, SERVPRO of Largo remediation experts (MRSR1163) can provide comprehensive cleanup, repairs, and preventive measures following a licensed Florida mold assessor's evaluation. Our remediation process adheres to strict safety protocols and employs specialized equipment to safeguard the property and reduce cross-contamination.

Here are some of the equipment and methods used during mold remediation:

  • HEPA Filtration

High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters capture mold spores and other airborne particles that could cause contamination during cleanup. SERVPRO® professionals use HEPA filtration on vacuums and air filtration machines to ensure the air is clean and safe to breathe.

  • Antimicrobial Detergents

Antimicrobial detergents are used to clean surfaces and prevent mold and fungal growth. These detergents are safe for use on various surfaces, including wood, drywall, and concrete. We have proprietary products to protect building materials from irreparable harm when possible.

  • Containment Barriers

Containment barriers prevent mold spores from spreading to unaffected areas of the property. SERVPRO professionals use plastic sheeting and other materials to create containment barriers around the affected area. We also conduct comprehensive repairs as a licensed general contractor (CBC1250662.)

  • Proper PPE

During mold remediation, personal protective equipment (PPE) is essential to protect workers from exposure to mold spores and other contaminants. SERVPRO professionals wear the appropriate PPE, including gloves, goggles, and respirators, to ensure their safety during cleanup.

While a third-party assessor can help determine the steps necessary to remove mold, an experienced remediation team like SERVPRO of Largo finishes the job. Our professionals can follow behind a licensed Florida mold assessor to provide complete cleanup, repairs, and preventative measures. If you need mold remediation services, don't hesitate to contact us for help at (727) 586-0060.
