Our Technicians Are The Best To Handle Your Arlington Mold Damage
Reasons for Mold Damage in Arlington Homes
Generally speaking, mold damage is not an issue that just happens to occur in a home. It is nearly always a symptom of another problem that needs addressing.
Mold damage is typical after water damage in Arlington Homes. Common reasons are standing water from pipe bursts, appliance failures, and flash floods since airborne mold spores are always present indoors and outdoors and pose no threat until conditions are ideal for germination.
The technicians undergo comprehensive training to identify areas susceptible to mold and how to eradicate existing infestations without the danger of cross-contamination to the rest of the home. When conditions from water damage cause elevated humidity levels inside the house, if the temperatures are warm enough-the spores germinate, and the colonies spread quickly once established.
SERVPRO technicians use their array of moisture detection equipment to locate areas of raised moisture behind walls, under floors, and within ceilings. This attention to detail assists with catching all instances of mold growth within the property.
Another Common Cause
Poor ventilation in attics is another frequent cause of mold damage. When the exhaust fan in a bathroom is not properly venting the moist air that occurs after a shower or bath, this buildup of humid air can create an optimum environment for mold growth. Since most people do not regularly go into their attics, the issue has the potential to spread before it undergoes remediation. This is often the type of infection that homeowners find when there is a musty odor in the home; they cannot get rid of it.
Depending on the level of infestation in the home, technicians remove items too damaged for restoration and bring the ambient humidity down to levels too low to sustain the mold through the use of professional-grade drying and dehumidifying equipment. The application of antimicrobial sealants is standard after dried colony abatement.
