Stains To Deterioration - Mold Damage In Destin Homes Affect Walls And Ceilings
Mold Damage In Your Home
Homes and apartments in the Destin area range from full-time residences to seasonal getaways. During unoccupied periods, microbes can create a lot of damage inside a home or other dwelling.
When homeowners discover their Destin property contains mold damage and other microbial activity, a quick call to SERVPRO can make things right again. Our trained technicians know how to save our customers money wherever possible by only replacing irreparable materials and always restoring anything else. We can do this because mold damage happens in different degrees of severity.
The walls and ceilings inside your home contain significant amounts of cellulose. Other organic matter from the daily activities in your home can also provide a large number of consumable materials for microbes. While mold grows on the flat surfaces of your interior architecture, these microorganisms eat away at the surfaces underneath them.
Caught early, your walls and ceilings might only suffer stains. At SERVPRO, we can get these stains removed or covered up with a primer coat of microbial-repellent paint. Left alone, mold damage can escalate so severely that these same walls can become much worse. With time, they can begin falling apart, crumbling in spots or collapsing from their own weight.
Falling in, as in the case with ceilings, can happen when water leaks in across the top of the ceiling and gradually softens the drywall, as well as allowing mold to grow out of control. When water evaporates steadily, this situation often involves only sections of the ceiling instead of a more extensive section. However, either can prove dangerous and cause a significant amount of injuries to anyone in the area when the ceiling collapses.
Living in a home with these problems can cause health effects, as well, due to the high content of mold spores often found in the air. Because of this risk, SERVPRO technicians always clean the air with HEPA-filter air scrubbers as we remediate the damage. When we finish, not only do the homes we work on look “Like it never even happened.” but the home is once again a healthy place to live in once more.
We want the families around Mary Ester, Eglin, and Hulbert to live in beautiful homes that also pose no health risks to the occupants. Call SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach's 24-hour service line at (850) 863-2552, and we can start the necessary mold damage remediation your home deserves.
