Struggling with Mold in Your Home? Call in the Experts!

12/14/2021 (Permalink)

It’s not unusual to occasionally find a small amount of mold in your home, especially in areas that are continually damp and in darkness, like a shower. Consistent cleaning and perhaps sealing can address these occasional nuisances, but if your mold problem is more than a small spec here and there, it’s time to call in the experts to help find the cause and get rid of the mold growth.

Mold does not go away on its own

We recommend that if you ever find mold damage in your home, you contact SERVPRO immediately to take care of the issue. The bottom line is that mold growth will not go away on its own and depending on the amount of growth can cause ongoing damage to walls and belongings. Many people choose to ignore their mold issue and let it progress or try to battle it on their own with bleach and a little elbow grease but unfortunately, if the mold growth is a result of a larger issue, expert mold remediation is needed. Those who allow fungal damage to remain undisturbed or try to clean up the area themselves often regret their decision and they never get the mold damage to stop and often never discover the root cause of the issue in the first place, which can lead to the return of mold growth in the future.

Why call in a mold remediation specialist

One of the most important reasons to call a professional remediation service for mold damage to your home is that the problem cannot be solved without intervention. The impacted area needs to be dried, cleaned, sanitized, and sometimes requires additional building work if the infestation is well-developed and impacted the integrity of materials like drywall. Otherwise, mold spores can continue to grow and spread to other parts of the home. The best time to call SERVPRO is when the damage is relatively light and has not spread across the area to other parts of the home. SERVPRO of Phoenix follows a tried and true mold remediation process to ensure the best results possible.

Tackling mold growth on your own isn’t as effective

Trying to eliminate mold damage yourself is rarely completely effective, as it is almost impossible to eradicate airborne spores and hidden pockets of growth without advanced tools. What most people don’t realize is that mold spores exist everywhere, so it’s a matter of addressing what causes mold spore growth to truly address the problem. SERVPRO uses advanced moisture detection tools to identify patches of mold behind walls and surfaces and air scrubbers to filter as many spores out of the environment as possible. In addition, SERVPRO knows that oftentimes, long after a visible mold growth is gone, strong, musty odors may remain. These odors take a long time leave your home on their own. SERVPRO technicians use industrial-strength chemical fogging machines to neutralize odor molecules, even if they are embedded deep within the walls and floors of your home.
