Spring Time, A Good Time To Evaluate For Mold Damage In Atlanta
SERVPRO Says: Mold Remediation Done Early Mitigates Damages
As the weather warms, many Atlanta residents treat their home to a thorough spring cleaning. As windows are washed, and closets cleared of last season’s garments it is a great time to keep an eye open in case microbial infestation is an issue. Catching mold colonization early on allows our mold remediation team to eradicate a current problem and help homeowners avoid future involvement.
Mold damage in Atlanta need not create a panic. Homeowners reading about the dangers of mold in the media should understand that fungal growth is manageable if properly trained experts follow procedures developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Our mold remediators use this protocol, containing and removing mold employing plastic sheeting or negative pressure air scrubbers to prevent spores and other moldy debris from entering clean areas of your home. Bagged and discarded mold creates no more problems you eliminate the moisture that saturates organic surfaces in your home and fuels mold growth.
SERVPRO mold experts know where to look for likely fungal incubators in your home. When cleaning out a cabinet or closet during your spring blitz, check walls and joints where the ceiling connects. Mold grows regardless of light, so a damp front hall closet or under sink cabinet are perfect places for it to multiply. Take a climb up to your attic or uppermost living area and look for staining, damp areas, and that unmistakable musty smell. Failing roofs and flashings can let just enough water inside to provide a feast for mold spores.
Move outside and gaze critically at your gutters and downspouts. SERVPRO technicians have plenty of experience tracing water damage from a battered set of gutters inside walls. Mold grows in peace between the interior papered or painted surfaces and the exterior cladding. Clogged drainage systems fail to direct water away from a foundation, and excess precipitation seeps inside a slab or crawlspace. Anywhere moisture collects mold spores use as opportunistic growing mediums. Note the symptoms as you complete your spring cleaning chores and let us help you with the treatment.
