Mold Damage in Your Taylorsville Home Needs a Fast Response

Don't let the mold spread. Call SERVPRO quickly to remediate.

Timely Professional Mold Remediation Will Lead to Success

Mold is the real danger of water damage, as it is something we might not be able to see physically. However, once it finally shows itself, it is only a matter of time before your entire home could be covered with the stuff. Usually, if your home is not completely dried and correctly ventilated in twenty-fours or less from the initial water damage incident, additional damage occurs, bringing mold along with it.
 
One of the biggest hazards that is found during water and flood damage restoration is mold infestation plus the infestation of other potentially dangerous microbes. Mold damage in your Taylorsville home, therefore, needs mold remediation as quickly as possible. The areas which have been wet for longer than forty-eight hours start to sprout mold.
 
Molds are a part of the natural environment and reproduce using tiny spores. These spores are not visible to the naked eye and float through air both indoors and outdoors. Mold can start growing indoors when the spores land on surfaces which are wet. There are several types of mold, but none will grow without moisture of some kind.
 
At SERVPRO, we realize that long term exposure to mold and mold spores causes health effects to you and your loved ones. We also recognize that if mold remediation and mitigation is not performed in a timely fashion, mold has the potential to damage your home severely, therefore causing its market value to fall dramatically, amongst other detriments.
 
When you call a SERVPRO technician to your home, you can expect a fast response. An estimate of the damages is drawn up after your home is properly inspected. We find what started the mold infestation, and we explain to you that just cleaning or bleaching these visible areas of infestation is not the solution. Unless all of the moisture is eliminated, the potential for the mold to grow back is high. Mold spores will always be present, but mold will not grow or spread if it does not have the moisture and the right environment to feed off of. You can also do things such as using exhaust fans while cooking, turning on air conditioners and dehumidifiers in warmer weather, and increasing ventilation in your home.
 
We also figure out what the extent of the damage is and how much time elapsed before we were called in. We take you through each step of the way during the restoration and mitigation of the mold, so you can have peace of mind and fully understand all that is happening.
 
Time is of the essence with a mold infestation and inspection for mold and remediation. At SERVPRO of Alexander & Caldwell Counties, we realize this and that the longer it takes to tackle the outbreak, the more damage you have. Therefore, as soon as you call us at (828) 396-1070, we make arrangements to have technicians to your home as soon as possible.
