Cleaning mold after water damage can affect your belongings a number of ways. If the item was subjected to water it could have water damage. The mold itself may have grown on the item and damaged it in the process. USA Restoration Pros has a team of experts who can clean and restore your damaged belongings. Here are a few of the more common types of mold cleanup and restoration we offer.
Documents and Photographs
Mold and water can be devastating to documents and photos. We put into action a five step process to help clean and preserve them. First, we air dry the document or photo. Second, is a dehumidifying process to make certain it doesn’t soak up any more water. Third, we may choose to freeze dry the item. The fourth option is a vacuum freeze dry where we remove all oxygen from the document then free dry it. Last we can vacuum thermal dry the item. This process removes all oxygen from the document, but instead of using cold to dry it, we use heat.
If a document or photo has suffered damage from mold as well as water, we also have a process in place to help clean and remove that mold from your damaged photos and/or documents. This may take place before or after the steps listed above.
