How Mold Damage Can Enter Your Home?

SERVPRO Remediates Mold Damage Inside or Outside of Your Home 

Mold creates a significant amount of damage wherever it thrives because of the way it uses its food source as a platform. Anchored by its hyphae on whatever surface it is using to supply its nutrients, mold causes that same surface to slowly disintegrate.  As it disintegrates, the mold reaches deeper down. This activity applies to any material that is even slightly porous, including concrete or brick.  
  
In Georgia, homes are made of some of the best building materials in the country, but mold damage can still happen. Mold occurs everywhere, and this means mold damage can happen inside your home, and outside, in areas that you might not have considered.  
  
Decorative brick on the exterior areas of your home, including those in walkways and patios, can become infused with mold. When wet, these bricks can become extremely slippery, causing people to fall and possibly injure themselves. Care must be taken to clean these areas well so that mold spores are not spread. Even though they are located outside, it is important to contain as much of the mold and spores as possible.  
  
It is crucial that this is cleaned up outside as mold is easily carried indoors by both people and pets. Once inside, mold can find itself deposited into pet beds and tucked away under beds and inside closets. All these locations are perfect breeding grounds for mold.  
  
SERVPRO of Norcross can help you rid your home of mold and the damage it can create. When mold becomes a problem, the only real choice is to remediate and protect your home. Mold damage affects your home, and while it is doing this, it can also be the cause of adverse health effects in your family members. Call us, SERVPRO of Norcross at (770) 858-5000, any day and at any hour if you have found mold damage in your home or believe it might be a problem where you live. 

How SERVPRO of Norcross Handles Mold?

Call SERVPRO of Norcross at 770-858-5000. MOLD? Call SERVPRO of Norcross at 770-858-5000 for an inspection.

Mold can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance if moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. Molds reproduce by making spores that usually cannot be seen without magnification. 

In a standard situation, SERVPRO of Norcross professionals examine the structure for any visible signs of mold and remove the mold growth and excess spores returning the area back to normal levels. Some situations require the assistance of an Indoor Air Quality/Environmental Professional (IEP) with specialized equipment and services needed to assess and/or repair the structure. IEPs can test and clear a structure for mold by collecting air and surface samples. Then they can determine whether the mold has been successfully decontaminated. SERVPRO of Norcross handles mold remediation work daily and know when prompt action is required to prevent further mold growth. We are trained to control microbial problems in structures by promptly drying wet or damp materials according to the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification. SERVPRO of Norcross is Certified Mold through IAQA.

Mold Problem? Call (770) 858-5000 for help. Mold Problem? Call (770) 858-5000 for help.

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors, and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Mold cleanup cannot be done with bleach, so be sure to contact us at (770) 858-5000 for mold remediation.

What is Asbestos?

Mask, gloves and Asbestos Asbestos Problem? Call (770) 858-5000 for help.

Asbestos was widely used in homes between the 1940s and 1970s. It is in insulation materials, floor tiles and other applications needing heat- and chemical-resistance materials. Asbestos is highly hazardous material and poses a great potential health risk for those exposed to the substance. While harmful asbestos materials are no longer used, exposures may still exist in older buildings and structures slated for demolition or renovation.

The Environmental Protection Agency has rules governing asbestos management that cover proper handling and disposal of asbestos-containing material. Adequate training and certification for asbestos workers, including inspectors, are part of these requirements.

SERVPRO of Norcross offers asbestos inspection and testing services. We have certified professionals to do asbestos abatement in accordance with AHERA and NESHAP protocols.
