A Severe Storm can Cause Mold to Grow in Your Personal Workshop
SERVPRO Technicians are Ready to Tackle a Mold Infestation in Any Affected Home Space
When people think of mold damage occurring to their property, they think of their home. Sometimes, the other smaller buildings around your home, such as your garage, shed, or workshop, can be forgotten about when it comes to making preparations for storms. If a storm has crept up, it is entirely possible that you did not have the time to try and fortify these extra spaces. However, when you have a personal Workshop at home, any damage found inside needs to be taken care of, just like it would for the interior of the space that you live in. In these situations, it is fortunate that professional and reputable help is close to your home.
You may consider waiting to deal with the mold damage on your North Fort Myers property until it is a better time financially for you to deal with it. Your workshop is not your home and, because you're not living inside of it, waiting can be tempting. However, waiting to deal with mold damage can be dangerous for multiple reasons. Mold causes health effects and, if you are working in a space riddled with mold damage, you could endanger your health. Secondly, mold causes the decomposition of organic materials. In a workshop, you are liable to have wooden building supplies, such as 2x4s. Additionally, the frame of your space is more than likely made out of wood. By waiting, you could potentially cause harm to your workspace.
When you call SERVPRO, we make it our priority to get to your home fast and work fast. Our team of technicians can start by sectioning off any contaminated areas with polyethylene plastic sheets, to ensure that the mold does not spread to other surfaces while we work. To handle the smell that mold causes, SERVPRO techs can use an air scrubber in conjunction with HEPA filters to pull mold spores out of the air and neutralize the foul odor. We can use disinfectant to clean the mold from any non-porous surfaces and then dry out any excessively moist areas of your workshop to help prevent further damage.
If you find mold damage after a heavy storm on your property, do not delay. Dial (239) 573-5911 to get in touch with SERVPRO of Cape Coral. Day or night, we can take your call and get our techs to you swiftly.
