If You Have Mold Damage in Your Home Call The Professionals


Mold damage does not only affect your home's solid interior structures; it can affect anything that mold can grow on, and mold can grow on many different materials. Because mold doesn't always appear the same from one kind to another, more than one type of mold is usually present in a home. So if you have found one area where mold is growing, chances are good you have more somewhere else.

This is because, in Madeira Beach, mold damage can happen when conditions are right for any one particular type of mold. If this is the case, environmental conditions are also good for any other types of mold. So if you've found mold growing in one place, you might want to examine your stored books, clothing, and anything else you have put away, for mold growth. While you might think these items will be drier, they also have had more time to accumulate moisture.

Books that are moldy will have a distinctive musty odor, but may or may not show mold on the surfaces of your books. Clothing will often develop spots and blotches that are nearly impossible to remove. Some plastics and rubber-based toys may be stained permanently, while others can be restored. SERVPRO technicians are capable of handling these, so they are restored to the best possible condition. Mold is very damaging, and the sooner restorative work is begun, the better the results will be.

At SERVPRO, we not only know how to remediate mold growths so that they are much less likely to return but also how to help you create an environment that will keep humidity levels at appropriate levels. If you follow our advice on keeping humidity and moisture level slow in your home, mold should not be able to find the moisture needed for it to grow. We can examine and inspect your central air system or air conditioning unit, ensure that any sump pumps are working properly and draining correctly, and install or service any dehumidifiers needed to create a drier environment.

Florida is a more humid state than most, so having measures in place that will help reduce humidity levels can prevent mold growth and subsequent mold damage.
