Mold Remediation Products and Facts
SERVPRO Can Remediate Mold Issues in Your Home or Office
The sight of mold strikes fear in homeowners and commercial managers. Mold is a type of fungi which has many varieties. Some are harmless, while others can cause possible illnesses and health effects and are destructive to our properties. Mold is both visible and hidden. It is insidious, growing behind walls, under floors, in ducts, behind ceiling tiles and on our furnishings. These fungi release spores so quickly, especially when disturbed that by the time we realize there may be a problem, there already is one.
If you are a homeowner or a business owner, and you see mold damage in Tallahassee, there are products that you can purchase which are mold resistant. Research and technology have given us products to use in our homes and commercial use that will protect us against mold. Florida is a great, beautiful state but its climate holds all the elements that mold requires to flourish.
Let's start with paint. There are mold resistant paint products that can be used “after” mold growth has been treated. This paint is available to cover walls and floors of affected areas. The chemicals in the paint help to completely destroy mold roots and seals off the treated area from any further mold growth. When you use this product, apply a couple of layers in the top and bottom corners of the wall because these areas seem to be hot spots for mold growth because of excessive moisture buildup. Use your mold resistant paint, layering it on walls, ceiling, basement floors to prevent mold from returning. SERVPRO has expert technicians that can remediate your mold problem and offer future protection. Why not rely on us, the professionals.
Another mold resistant product is drywall. Drywall is a part of our homes and offices which are highly affected by water damage. Drywall simply soaks up water like a sponge and holds onto its moisture which is a great call to dinner for mold. Now, we can install mold resistant drywall which was designed to be a deterrent to mold specifically. This type of drywall uses a fiberglass mat rather than a paper-face. The object of mold resistant drywall material make-up is that mold doesn't have the opportunity to feed on the organic materials which are present in paper-backed drywall.
But, until you use mold resistant paint or drywall material, call us at SERVPRO so that we can make an inspection of any mold presence.
