Mold Damage in a Closed Condo in N. Fort Myers

SERVPRO Can Remediate Your Condo's Mold Problem Using Appropriate Methods

If a mold problem is not caught quickly, the affected area can move from a patch in a single room to an entire house. If this happens, or if the contamination has gotten into the HVAC system, then there is the possibility that some of your belongings need intense cleaning.

Mold damage can render a North Fort Myers condo unsafe for you and your property. If the contamination has spread too far, SERVPRO will recommend relocating your property to another storage area until we can complete cleaning and restoring your home. This does not always mean that temporary storage has to be done at a commercial facility. If your garage is not affected by the mold contamination, then the property can be stored there after it has been inspected and cleaned. It's not something we prefer doing since damage can occur whenever property is moved and will only ask you to do so for the following reasons:

Speed and Cost - Keeping your family in temporary housing is expensive. We can only assume that your insurance adjuster will balance the additional cost of property storage against how quickly the restoration process can be completed and recommend temporary storage to save money overall.

Secondary Damage - If extensive replacement of building material is required, the temporary storage may be needed to prevent further property damage by contractors, SERVPRO possibly completing all of the work. In some cases, a contractor may make this a requirement before they will begin work.

Water Saturation - The moisture content in the air and your property may be so high that it will be beneficial to remove items until we can substantially lower the RH, relative humidity, within the structure. Significant reduction in moisture will increase the indoor air quality of your home and mitigate future returns of a mold infestation.

If you fear a mold contamination in your condominium, call SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda at (941) 575-5910 today. The sooner you get the restoration process started, the quicker we will get you back into your home with as little cost and damage to your property as possible and enjoy the Florida sunshine again.
