Suspect growth removal Cutting out Drywall

When sawing through moldy drywall, you can have an assistant hold a vacuum hose with a Hepa filter nearby to further decrease the spread of mold spores or our SERVPRO Franchise uses a drywall saw with an attachment for our Hepa-vacuum. When removing moldy materials, place them in heavy plastic garbage bags before carrying it out of the home so no mold spores are spread to other areas of the home in the process. It’s imperative that you do everything possible to prevent spreading mold spores throughout the house so that you don’t end up with mold in other rooms. If there is any mold on the wooden studs, clean those as well as you can with an antimicrobial cleanser. Allow them to dry completely, then apply anti-microbial sealant to make sure any remaining traces of mold cannot continue to grow and spread. Sanding wooden studs to remove mold growth should only be done by a professional who is suited up in PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), since it greatly increases exposure to potentially harmful mold spores. SERVPRO technicians are well trained to preform remediation services on any scale whether small or large projects. Please call SERVPRO of Lake county Florida at 1-352-735-3311
