The Right Call for Mold Damage in Your Colonial Heights Home
SERVPRO Quickly Investigates a Mold Infestation Throughout Your Home
With the humid air through a significant part of the year, your Colonial Heights home might be more at risk of mold growth and fungal colonies than you know. The conditions necessary for mold growth in your home are only dampness and moisture combined with an increase in temperature. When these two conditions get met, spores in the air can find the nutrients and food they need to seat themselves on surfaces in that area and grow a thriving organism.
You would not be the first Colonial Heights home to experience mold damage, but too often homeowners believe that the problem is not severe, or it is something that they can remedy on their own. To be clear, it is widely understood that mold can cause health effects to you or your family coming into contact with the colonies, so it is something that should get handled promptly. Moreover, conventional cleaning methods are often ineffective for removing the entire hyphae, meaning that the colony itself could merely sprout forth again after a short time.
When our SERVPRO remediation specialists begin work on your home, we focus our efforts both on removing the present growth and identifying the source that fed the spores in the first place. Understanding where the source of the water is can aid our technicians in sealing off these areas and keeping conditions from allowing further colonies to grow again in this same area of your home.
With the latest techniques and equipment, our SERVPRO IICRC-certified technicians get to work quickly on isolating the area where the growth occurs and preventing these spores from spreading to new areas of your house. Once the colonies have gotten removed, dehumidification begins to pull all of the moisture from the area. It could get recommended, in very damp areas of your house, to run similar equipment indefinitely to keep spores from being fed and forming damaging fungal growths.
Discovering mold damage in your home does not have to be an overwhelming experience, nor do you have to handle it alone. Our experienced team at SERVPRO of Kingsport / Bristol is available to help you anytime you need us just by calling (423) 245-5552.
