When Mold Grows in Your Destin Home, Trust Professional Remediators to Safely Remove it

4/29/2018 (Permalink)

Mold can spread quickly and is very unsightly. Contact SERVPRO right away after you see or smell mold in your home.

SERVPRO Technicians Understand the Science Behind the Prevention of Mold

Severe weather systems rolling in from the coast and a constant humidity are two ever-present battles that Destin homeowners are asked to endure for their little slice of paradise. Of course, the trouble with these specific issues is the damage that they can cause to a house when they have a chance. Severe weather has a nasty habit of causing flooding for residents in the area, and if improperly cleaned up and not thoroughly dried, your home could be at risk for fungal growth.
Unfortunately, the high levels of humidity (if not maintained adequately within your home) could also result in mold damages in Destin. When moisture is present in the environment, naturally occurring mold spores only require warmer temperatures and an organic surface to seat and form colonies. With this ease that mold can grow in your home, it is not a surprise that so many in the area struggle with the presence of varieties of mold growing in their residence.
When our SERVPRO team arrives at your home, we get to work quickly on sectioning off the area of your house where the mold actively grows and thrives. This isolation gets best accomplished with the use of negative air chambers or air scrubbers with HEPA filters. This level of protection can help to limit the spread of active mold spores through the efforts to remove the colonies are underway.
Sanding and spraying the surfaces with a chemical intended to penetrate through the porous materials (like the wood framing of your home) often is the most effective means of removing the mold colonies. This process is not always successful, as the mold can be too deep in the material for remediation efforts for our SERVPRO technicians to reach them entirely. In these unfortunate circumstances, construction materials and structural components need to get removed and replaced with new materials for the remediation process to complete.
While this is only a small piece of the overall mold remediation process, it can show the level of dedication and expertise that you can expect from SERVPRO of Fort Walton Beach. Our mold remediation specialists are available 24/7 to help you through any circumstance you might face just by calling (850) 863-2552.
