Hidden Mold Damage to Structural Components and Interior Contents of Residences in Atlanta

2/18/2018 (Permalink)

When finding mold behind furniture, it is time to bring in the professional technicians at SERVPRO for remediation services.

SERVPRO Takes a Mold Infestation in Your Home Seriously

As a darkness-loving microorganism, mold easily avoids detection by human eyes. This ability to quickly gain a strong foothold provides microbes more than enough time to cause damage inside an Atlanta home. The areas affected might stay hidden until the homeowners decide to start a home-improvement project or rearrange the furniture.

Once homeowners in Atlanta discover mold damage, they should immediately start remediation to repair the situation. Beginning the repair work and other aspects of remediation as soon as possible helps to prevent several different problems from occurring or escalating. Keeping mold and spores contained through the use of temporary barrier walls, double-bagging, and quick disposal keeps them from spreading. Rendering them incapable of spreading protects people and any uncontaminated areas of your home.

When a project involves areas damaged by microbial activity, many contractors refuse to continue until after an expert remediation team removes the moldy materials. This is because not only can mold cause health effects but can also infest new materials. Completely removing any ruined materials protects people's health and your investment.

During storage in the warehouse, special measures ensure that your new building materials and supplies arrive safely and without any defects. The responsibility of preventing cross-contamination within your home now rests upon your shoulders. SERVPRO technicians are ready to help you protect your home and new materials from the hazards that microbes can introduce.

Rearranging furniture, even within a room, can reveal mold growing on walls behind furniture. Other locations that often suffer in the presence of mold include floors under large pieces of furniture and also around window frames. Many mold spores can easily collect underneath a bed or couch, while window frames collect spores from the air outside as it moves through tiny cracks.

Before placing your furniture pieces in their newly intended spots, calling SERVPRO to clean up the mold can help remove the excess microbial population and give your home a fresh start. Doing so can help keep your home free of excessive mold in the future and protect your home and your furniture.

SERVPRO of Southwest Cobb / Cascade can be contacted by calling our local number, (770) 739-2355, 24-hours every day of the year. When you discover mold, call us to help prevent mold damage from spreading and growing to other areas of your home.
