Mold Damage Cleanup for Your Fort Myers Home

3/21/2018 (Permalink)

If there is a water leak in your bathroom it is likely to turn into mold damage if not dried out quickly.

Call on SERVPRO if You Find a Water Leak or Mold Damage in Your Bathroom

If it is left untreated, a water leak in your Fort Myers bathroom can be costly, especially if it leads to severe damage to flooring, walls, and paint. Besides the water damage that ensues, you also could have mold damage. Mildew or mold can spring up if you have a hidden water leak. It thrives on dark, moist areas, and a pipe which is usually hidden under flooring or in a wall gives the perfect starting point for mildew and mold to start growing if a pipe begins leaking.

Mold damage in your Fort Myers home is something you want to get taken care of as soon as possible after you find it. Not only does it grow and spread fast, causing more damage to your home, it can also create health effects for you and your family. Our technicians at SERVPRO are trained and ready to tackle your mold problem any time you need us, so getting in touch with us right away is a good idea.

Before starting remediation, we have to contain the mold to make sure it does not spread to areas of your home which are not contaminated. Containment can include putting up plastic sheeting, establishing negative air pressure in the area, sealing HVAC vents to stop contamination of the duct system, and establishing clean rooms and decontamination rooms.

The method SERVPRO techs use to remove the mold depends on what kind of surface the mold is on. Nonporous materials are usually able to be cleaned, while porous materials many times have to be removed and discarded. Most of the time by using damp wiping and HEPA vacuuming, we can get rid of spores which have settled, even when the materials are porous.

We lastly dry your home back out to prevent further mold growth. Some of the drying procedures have to be delayed until after containment, and the removal of mold is finished. By removing materials which are damaged by water, we can speed the drying process up. Dehumidifiers which do not have much airflow may be utilized during removal and containment procedures.

SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda realizes that finding mold growing in your home in Solana, Pirate Harbor, or Cleveland can be concerning. However, if you find mold, just give us a call at (941) 575-5910, and we can help you clean it up and make your home safe again.
