SERVPRO Answers Any Question to Educate and Reassure Homeowners Affected by Mold

Mold contamination is a common problem in many properties. However, there is considerable misinformation, especially about remediation. When you notice mold signs in your Orlando home, you might not know which of the numerous recommended remedies might be helpful to you. 

Hiring a professional to help with mold remediation at your Orlando property is one of the best approaches since such providers have the necessary resources to contain mold effectively. SERVPRO has IICRC certified Applied Microbial Remediation technicians who have all the relevant mold development and management knowledge.

Some of the essential questions about mold include:

  • Why does mold develop?
  • Where does mold grow in a home?
  • When does mold become a problem?

The questions may be relevant to you due to various reasons. For instance, you might notice mold developing in a house when least expected, so the question of why arises. Rather than quoting general possibilities, our SERVPRO technicians inspect the property to establish what sparked the contamination if no apparent signs of water damage are identified. We can use thermos-hygrometers to probe humidity levels in different areas of the house. We can also use thermal cameras to check for hidden water leaks in the walls, ceilings, and other cavities.

Where mold damage develops is another common question when mold exhibits subtle signs such as a musty smell but no visible patches. Mold readily colonizes when moisture interacts with organic materials such as wood, cardboard, paper, and ceiling tiles. Our SERVPRO technicians use various cues, including checking where the musty odor is more pungent or looking for concealed moisture, thus identifying areas in your house where the mold is likely hidden. We then drill small holes and inspect the site with borescopes for confirmation.

Knowing whether the mold contaminating your home is a significant problem or not is essential in planning the remediation. For minor contamination, the processes can be completed while the house is still occupied. Our SERVPRO technicians erect barriers for protection. However, if there is severe contamination, you need to vacate the home during remediation since mold exposure can cause health effects.
