Utilizing Containment to Prevent Further Spread of Microbial Growth

When mold becomes present in a home or business, precautionary measures must be taken to ensure that it does not spread further. Mold containment is arguably one of the most important steps in the mold remediation process. Containment is set up using a plastic barrier so that the affected area is separated from nonaffected areas. The goal of containment is to limit the spread of mold throughout the building during the remediation process. 

In this picture, containment is set up between the kitchen and office. When our team arrived on-site, they found a drainpipe from a nearby bathroom leaking. This caused excessive amounts of water damage behind the walls for an undetermined period of time which lead to the growth of mold. Containment was assembled and our technicians got right to work remediating the affected areas.

Slow, Undetected Water Leak Causes Mold Growth

This picture was taken at a home that had a slow, gradual water leak from a plumbing pipe inside a bathroom wall. The leak went undetected for a few days causing mold to grow behind the baseboards where moisture was trapped. Our water damage restoration experts quickly found the source of the problem. We then extracted excess water, strategically placed drying equipment, and remediated the mold growth. Our customer was thrilled our technicians were so knowledgeable!

Washing Machine Failure Causes Mold Growth Throughout Home

This photo is a great example of how mold can grow throughout a home if proper mitigation measures are not taken following a water damage event. While the family who lived here was on vacation, their washing machine malfunctioned and slowly leaked water. When they returned home, they found water had dispersed throughout the entire home and mold was growing from the floors to the ceiling fans. Our restoration technicians removed all materials affected by microbial growth, leaving the studs and foundation to be treated with an antimicrobial agent before rebuild operations began.

Mold Remediation in Covington School

Mold needs water, organic matter, and time to grow. A small leak in an air duct caused water to accumulate in the ceiling of this Covington school. As warmer weather moved in during summer months, humidity levels rose and added to this moisture problem. Mold began growing on ceilings in one hallway and a couple of bathrooms. After the issue was fixed, our mold remediation team was contracted to remove mold affected materials and clean contaminated areas.
