Advantages of Soda Blasting Mold During Bristol Remediation

Abrasive cleaning techniques can be a reliable method of remediation in Bristol homes. While there are multiple layers of a microbial threat to remove when colonization starts, including both the physical mold organism growing on the material and the harsh musty odor that gets emitted from active growth, there are efficient strategies to address both of these conditions. Cleaning up mold effects on relatively undamaged construction materials requires a focused cleaning tactic involving compressed air and varying media.

Soda and media blasting can both diminish the microbial threat in your house and help to reduce widespread controlled demolition during mold remediation of Bristol properties. While many circumstances might demand the removal of overly deteriorating construction materials like drywall and wood trim, prompt response with the right techniques can reduce total property losses from expanding microbial colonies. Soda blasting requires sophisticated equipment and trained technicians, which is an advantage that our accredited SERVPRO Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) bring to the table after the discovery of mold damage in your house.

Using compressed air along with baking soda, walnuts, sand, or other media options, we can begin to remove surface mold and even underlying concerns beyond the top layer. Soda blasting can be instrumental in removing seated portions of mold colonies, affecting the entire hyphae of the organism. The objective of this abrasive cleaning technique is to remove surface concerns without damaging the substrate underneath.

While media blasting as a whole cannot serve as a deodorization action, the use of these techniques can help to reduce the severity and spread of musty odors in the house. Much like volatile compounds that can emit from active colonies, distinctive odors are also a concern that can penetrate porous surfaces, fabrics, and soft materials. Abrasive cleaning can remove the colonies, which can noticeably reduce the concentration of unwanted scents, as well. For the same reason, we often keep an open box of baking soda in the fridge.

 Mold colonization can lead to health effects for those exposed, so remediation should begin as soon as possible when you discover these threats in your house. No matter how our AMRTs can help, give our SERVPRO of Bristol rapid response team a call today at (860) 582-3330.
