The Importance of Professional Remediation For Mold In Your Centerville Home

SERVPRO Defeats Mold in Centerville Homes, "Like it never even happened."

Mold Damage Progresses without Removal--Call SERVPRO for a Remedy

If you thought the humidity levels throughout the year near your Centerville home were only inconvenient to your comfort level, you would, unfortunately, be mistaken. High humidity means a lot of moisture in the air, which means that conditioning appliances in your home are working overtime to turn this muggy atmosphere into pleasant conditions inside. It also means that areas of your home (like your basement or crawlspace) that do not experience much of this conditioned air instead can be burdened with this high-humidity environment.

The moisture in the air can allow for conditions like mold damage to occur in your Centerville basement or crawlspace. For mold growth to occur, the only requirements are warmth, moisture and organic material for spores to develop into colonies. With this understanding, and with the met conditions, mold can begin growing within 72 hours. Once you have discovered colonies growing in the house, professional remediation is necessary to remove this presence as efficiently as possible.

Many homeowners get misguided into thinking that they can take harsh cleansers like bleach to the present mold patch and scrub away the organisms. Truthfully, this action is only taking away the problem that you can see, but leaves the rest of the organism growing and thriving below the surface. Our SERVPRO professionals have techniques which allow them to penetrate beyond this surface level to remove the entire hyphae.

One of the steps that our SERVPRO technicians take when we get started with removal is to spray the area down with an antimicrobial solution. This chemical solution adversely affects the entire colony (and can even eliminate parts of it on contact). This process gets followed up with either soda blasting, dry-ice blasting, vacuuming, or sanding the material where the colony was found to reach deeper layers.

You might not ever be ready to see mold growing in your home, but there are steps you can take to get rid of these intruders. The best choice you can make is to reach out to our SERVPRO of North Leon County applied microbial remediation technicians. They can show up quickly and help you limit the spread of the colony while they work to remove it from your home. Give us a call anytime at (850) 536-6599.
