You Can Avoid Mold Damage in Nashville if Properly Prepared
SERVPRO Advises Nashville Property Owners to Be Aware of Possible Mold Infestations to Limit Needed Remediation
Mold spores are present everywhere, and a spike in moisture and other favorable conditions leads to mold growth. Unfortunately, fungi are not just a problem because infested surfaces are unsightly or that its musty smell is uncomfortable, Nashville properties with visible mold growth might be considered rundown. Some people even associate mold with being dirty. September being the national preparedness month, you should learn a few things about preventing or cleaning visible mold before it gets out of hand.
The risk of mold damage in Nashville increases during periods when other events such as storms and heavy rainfall occur. This spike happens because of the likelihood of breaches that deposit water inside the house as well as the increased relative humidity in the air. Lack of moisture is the most significant hindrance to mold growth. Therefore, humidity-rich air is like a catalyst. In case your property floods, our SERVPRO technicians can help dry it quickly enough before mold develops, typically within 24-72 hours.
Mold and icebergs have one thing in common because, by the time you spot the visual signs, there is a huge underlying problem. One thing that can help establish the presence of mold when it is not yet visible is the musty smell it produce. However, since you live in the house, it may be possible to get used to the smell of the house and miss this vital clue. Proper cleaning procedures are therefore necessary to deal with the entire problem. Our SERVPRO technicians utilize different techniques including establishing containment zones, cleaning the affected areas and drying any moisture depending on the extent of the problem.
Although mold usually grows on surfaces, its effects can go deeper if you take long before starting the remediation process. Mold and other forms of fungi cause decomposition of organic matter. At this stage, the remediation process ceases to be a simple cleanup exercise because we have to remove the affected materials, which increases the costs involved.
