Excess Humidity Can Cause Mold Damage In Your Fort Myers Garage

9/11/2018 (Permalink)

It is essential for you to reach out for professional help as soon as possible when you first see mold damage.

Excess Humidity Can Cause Mold Damage

Everyone who lives in Florida knows that humidity is usually high, but if your home is not adequately insulated to prevent it, humidity can cause mold damage. In the case of your home, your garage is not as well protected as the rest of your home and temperatures continuously fluctuate. Feeding on the moisture the humidity brings, mold spores turned into mold colonies along the walls inside your garage.

It is essential for you to reach out for professional help as soon as possible when you first see the speckled dots of greyish-green mold damage inside your Fort Myers garage. Not only can ignoring the problem cause further damage to your home, such as rot, but mold can also cause health effects. When it comes to your home, belongings, and the people who live there, it is best to get mold taken care of as soon as it is found.

SERVPRO can travel to your house within hours of your call to begin the remediation process. After an investigation, we can move your belongings away from the impacted wall and make a space to work. Afterward, our technicians can create a barrier out of plastic sheeting around the mold colonies. It is vital to contain the mold spores while we work so the spores cannot spread.

Before SERVPRO begins to remove the mold, we can set up an air scrubber equipped with carbon filters. Not only can this device help eliminate the odor that mold causes, but it can also suck airborne mold spores out of the air while we work. Taking the spores out of the air also lessens the chance of the damage spreading.

Our IICRC-certified technicians can use disinfectant to help remove the mold from your walls. Once your walls have been scrubbed down and the mold removed, SERVPRO can apply an antifungal solution to help minimize the chances of regrowth. After the damage has been remediated, our team can remove the plastic sheeting and return your belongings to their rightful positions.

Never ignore mold damage inside of your home. Dial (941) 575-5910 to contact SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda. No matter the time, we're always open and available to help you.
