Mold can spread very quickly in any part of your home. Contact SERVPRO when you suspect mold for an inspection.

SERVPRO Technicians Remediate a Current Mold Infestation While Offering Preventative Suggestions for Homeowners

Your North Fort Myers home might be well guarded against things like storm damages and possible flooding, but what many homeowners overlook is the possibility of mold growth occurring. This process can happen very quickly and without any symptoms as the problem begins, which makes it difficult to plan for or prevent without the proper knowledge about the conditions which promote its growth. Most homeowners have attributed mold to damp, dark basements or to houses that are typically unkept and unclean. In reality, fungal growth requires very little to thrive and can happen in even the cleanest of homes.
The reality is, mold damage in your North Fort Myers house is more likely than you might think. All that mold requires to grow colonies in areas of your home is moisture in the air combining with spores present in the environment. Spores exist in the air we breathe, so all that your home needs to grow mold colonies that could present health effects for you and your family is a little bit of persistent moisture. This understanding can help you see that it is far from the dark, dank basements you had envisioned and a lot more possible to your home right now.
While arguably many homeowners struggle with keeping their lowest level entirely dry, as water underground and heavy rainfall work in conjunction to try and push water through foundation walls and crawlspaces into your home, this is still a noble effort. Even with a small bit of moisture seeping through cracks on a regular basis could feed the spores in the air to seat and colonize. That is when you should trust in the experience and training of our IICRC certified mold remediation specialists at SERVPRO.
Our dedicated team can quarantine the area and prevent spores from spreading to other regions of your home. While our SERVPRO technicians work to remove the colonies that are present in the affected areas, dehumidification and drying are essential to helping stop recurrences in a short time. Locating the source of the moisture penetration is also a critical component of our remediation process, as a repair of this area can prevent future colonies from growing.
It might not seem like mold damage is that big of a deal, or rather that it is even likely to affect you, but you could get surprised by how simple it is for spores to form colonies. If you are facing any degree of mold damage in your home, trust our SERVPRO of Cape Coral team of remediation specialists to help you resolve the issue. We can be reached anytime at (239) 573-5911.
