Finding Mold in Your Damp North Fort Myers Crawlspace
SERVPRO Assesses and Then Quickly Begins the Mold Remediation Process in Your Home
The extreme humidity that plagues the state of Florida year round can easily cause mold damage to occur inside of your home. Because of Florida's location near the equator and adjacent to the ocean, every day is hot and humid. If your home has not been built correctly in preparation for constant humidity, the excessive moisture can impact the structure of your home. Damp places can become the perfect breeding ground for mold colonies.
A damp crawl space that has been untouched for a long time is a likely place to find mold damage in your North Fort Myers home. Usually, one of the first indications that there is mold somewhere nearby is if you can smell it; a musty odor is a telltale sign. If you smell mold, there is no need for expensive testing. The odor is a sign enough that remediation needs to occur.
After receiving your call, SERVPRO can send employees swiftly. Within hours, our techs can be setting up polypropylene barriers at the entrance and exit of your crawl space. It is essential to section off the area of your home where mold has occurred so it cannot spread. Sometimes, our SERVPRO techs can use tools to create negative air pressure in the confined area to ensure mold spores do not spread while inside.
Because water damage is often the direct cause of mold, our techs can also see to remediating it as well. Once SERVPRO has handled scrubbing and removing the mold from all of the non-porous walls and materials, we can use vacuums to clean up the crawl space. To help suppress the odors that were left behind by the damage, our team can use mold and mildew retardant paints.
Upon smelling or directly finding mold on your property, do not linger. Talk to SERVPRO of Cape Coral at (239) 573-5911. We can get our techs out to your home swiftly to begin the job.
