Mold Damage can Spread From Wet Bathrooms Throughout Your Wake Forest Home
Team SERVPRO Effectively Stops the Spread of the Mold Infestation in Your Home
Mold, mildew, and other fungi live on almost every surface inside your Wake Forest residence, no matter how often you clean. These microorganisms can survive through harsh conditions because of their structures and capabilities.
Wiping things down with a damp cloth to clean the interior furnishings of your home can lead to mold damage in Wake Forest becoming worse. Microbes like these thrive in moist conditions and a regular drink from your cleaning sponge can provide this. Bleach rarely kills these microorganisms as well as you might expect, especially if you clean areas like drywall and other semi-porous surfaces. This happens because water can get in to nourish the microbes, while larger bleach molecules remain blocked and unable to penetrate as deeply.
SERVPRO teams know how to get excessive amounts of mold out of your home and back to normal, acceptable levels. Before we begin, we prepare the area with plastic sheeting and compartmentalized areas to maintain better control over the microbe we intend on remediating. We use air scrubbers to direct the air in specific directions to more efficiently handle the work.
Materials with mold damage cannot remain inside your home safely and can end up causing future contamination. We remove these materials and bag them up in heavy plastic bags. Then we remove them from your home. Our workers are dedicated individuals who want your family to live in a safe and healthy home, without any risk of the possible health effects mold might cause.
We use equipment with HEPA filters to ensure that all microbes, as well as the dust created during the removal of materials with mold damage, stays contained and never enters the rest of your home. Other pieces of our equipment have other uses. Our moisture meters help us detect where the excess moisture comes. Without moisture, mold and mildew cannot survive. While dampness from cleaning activities can help microbes survive, we might find other sources, as well. We always discuss our findings with the homeowners and help them decide which options might work best.
