The Importance Of Drying When Dealing With Mold In Statesville
SERVPRO Can Make Your Residential Mold "Like It Never Even Happened."
Mold is an unwelcome guest that can quickly creep up on any home in North Carolina. Mold spores love humidity which makes the warm, humid summers in much of North Carolina a perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold looks unsightly and makes your home less pleasant to live in, especially when you factor in that unmistakable moldy smell.
SERVPRO are experts in dealing with mold damage to your Statesville home. That is why we recommend putting in a call to us at the first sign of mold. You can often spot the black mold spores on surfaces, or you might notice because of discoloration on your walls or ceiling. Even if you do not see the mold at first, the smell is often a giveaway.
We arrive at your property fully prepared to assess the mold situation and establish containment before cleaning commences. That is the start of the process. However even after the cleaning is done, there is still the matter of drying out the area. Mold thrives in damp conditions which is why drying is such an important part of the mold remediation process.
Our IICRC-certified experts are trained to assess your home to determine how best to dry it out. We understand that bringing in air movers or dehumidifiers too early can make the problem worse, as they move the mold spores through the air. That is why we are strict about establishing containment and cleaning top to toe before we start the drying part of the process.
As soon as it is safe to run air movers and dehumidifiers, we do so. We carefully monitor the drying process as it progresses. We also remove any materials that are too damaged to dry out because we know that their presence contributes to the humidity in the air and makes the drying process more difficult. Our moisture detection equipment gives us an accurate picture of the situation.
The SERVPRO team is also happy to advise you on how to spot potential mold problems in the future and on ways to reduce mold breeding grounds. For example, this might mean running a dehumidifier more regularly or keeping a close eye on damp areas such as your bathroom or basement.
