Mold Damage Tallahassee – Avoiding Mold Infestations

12/12/2019 (Permalink)

Mold spots on a ceiling. Let us be there Tallahassee to guide you through the mold.

SERVPRO knows best when it comes to your Tallahassee mold issues.

Consumers may not realize that mold is present in their homes, outdoors, and just about everywhere. Mold spores are microscopic and float in the air until the spores find the right conditions to grow into colonies. Warmth, moisture, and a food source can provide the right conditions for mold to grow in your home. Mold produces mycotoxins that can seriously affect your health.

SERVPRO has extensive training in the control of mold damage in Tallahassee. We understand how to remove mold infestations and, more importantly, how to remove moisture in your home that mold needs to grow. Mold cannot be eliminated; however, it can be controlled, and consumers can avoid the associated health problems.

Checking for Sources of Moisture

Mold needs moisture to establish a colony. SERVPRO uses moisture sensors to help find any area in your home that may be contributing to moisture and high humidity. Lowering the humidity to below 45% in your home can help to deter mold growth.

There may be a leaky pipe, condensation on cold water pipes, or small leaks around windows. Whatever the cause, we can find these sources and propose solutions to control the moisture source.

Removing Mold

Consumers should take action to manage a mold infestation immediately. Waiting, hoping that it disappears or attempting to remove the mold yourself, usually allows the mold infestation to grow and cause more damage.

The mitigation process for dealing with mold infestation depends on the location and the extent of the area affected. Severe infestations may require the removal of drywall, flooring, and even structural elements. We follow appropriate removal and disposal procedures to protect the occupants. We remove porous materials from the affected area. Wash hard surfaces with a chlorine bleach solution. Remove the moisture source, and the environment must be dried. Keep humidity levels below 45%.
