Hidden Mold - Call the Experts at SERVPRO to Mitigate

3/14/2020 (Permalink)

Exposure to mold can cause a variety of health symptoms. Often mold can be hidden from the naked eye. Mold was discovered when SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties removed laminate flooring after a water heater broke in one of our customers' homes.

Mold inside the home can be problematic. Health issues, foul odors, and damage to the structural integrity of wood-framed buildings can occur.

Molds can grow on any virtually any surface as long as moisture, oxygen, and an organic source are present. Mold spores float through the air and attach to various surfaces, spreading quickly. 

Since mold requires water to grow, quick, thorough detection and mitigation by a qualified restoration company, such as SERVPRO of Benton, Jasper, Newton & Southern Lake Counties, is of extreme importance. We have moisture detecting equipment and industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to quickly mitigate your mold situation and restore your property back to its original condition. 

Proper remediation involves quick detection of the mold, identification of the water or moisture source, and correction of the conditions contributing to the mold growth as well as intensive cleaning and monitoring.

Our technicians are trained in handling hazardous materials, detecting hidden mold, containing the affected area, and quickly cleaning and restoring your property. If you suspect mold in your house, contact us at 219-779-7577.
