What Can I Do When I Find a Mold Outbreak in my Home in Charlottesville?

Have you recently had water damage, or have you noticed a strong, musty odor in your home or business? Mold is often a sign of hidden water damage. Learn more.

Mold Growth on Sub Floor

On the main level of this home, no issue was noticed.  However, underneath the hardwood floors, microbial growth had been spreading.  When SERVPRO of Charlottesville crew members arrived to mitigate a water damage, their suspicions of the damage being more extensive than originally thought was confirmed when they went down to the basement to find the subfloor looking like this.

Setting Up Containment for Mold Remediation

This home was in need of Mold Remediation services on the main level and the basement.  Since the upstairs was unaffected, our crew members set up a containment barrier at the stairwell that lead upstairs prior for beginning the remediation process to ensure that upstairs remained unaffected.

Mold Remediation Containment

Part of Mold Remediation involves keeping the high count of mold spores from spreading during the remediation.  Containing off the affected areas is one of the ways that we do that.  As you can see in this photo, our crews were able to do so simply by setting up containment in the doorway.  The black line down the center is a zipper which allows quick access in or out of the contained are with the ability to quickly reseal.  

Containment For Mold Remediation

In this home, water damage occurred in the bathroom on the main level affecting the area in the basement directly underneath the bathroom.  In order to prevent the mold from spreading any further in the basement during the remediation process, our crews set up containment.  This picture was taken from inside the containment barrier where we have 2 air scrubbers set up and “scrubbing” the mold spores out of the air bringing the mold  spore count back to normal readings again.  

Mold Remediation In Progress

In this photo, you can see one of our technicians hard at work cleaning the floor joists during a mold remediation loss after the severely affected flooring and sub-floor had been removed.

Mold Damage to Hardwood Floors

This photo was taken of hardwood floors that had water underneath them and in addition to the floors cupping, mold also began to make itself visible through the spaces between each plank of wood floor.
