Mold Strategy

11/7/2018 (Permalink)

Mold spores, invisible to the naked eye, can be found everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Spores make their way into the home either through the air or after attaching to objects or people. Open windows, doorways and ventilation systems are all gateways through which spores can enter.

Mold will only grow if spores land somewhere that has the ideal conditions for growing - places with excessive moisture and a supply of suitable nutrients. If this does not happen, molds do not normally cause any problem at all.

Mold can often be found in areas where leakages and flooding have occurred and near windows where condensation builds up. Mold  it is usually visible and often produces a musty odor.

If you do not see visible mold. Then it is recommended to hire an Air quality Environmental to come to your home and do a concluded test.  Once the Environmentalist does his report and verifies that there is mold, that is when SERVPRO would come aboard to do the remediation. SERVPRO is Certified, Licensed & Insured  Mold Remediation Company.
