Remediate Even Hidden Mold Damage

Mold in a Petri Dish Is Easier to Remediate Than Fungi in Your Nashville Home

Mold Remediation Can Be Tricky, Call SERVPRO

Wherever excess moisture lurks a mold outbreak is possible although the damage is not always easily visible. Something as simple as a slow drip from an aging spray attachment on the kitchen sink or a crack in the caulk in a shower can result in the interior of a wall or rarely opened cabinet becoming damp enough to harbor mold. SERVPRO trains its employees to be mold detectives, wise in the ways mold grows and spreads even if you are unaware areas of your home are hosting one or more strains of destructive fungi. If you notice a musty or unpleasant smell that does not seem connected to things such as spills, garbage, pets or dirty laundry we can inspect to see if the problem is a colony of mold.
Nashville mold damage is best handled by specialized technicians who have completed comprehensive schooling in the processes necessary to remediate an outbreak without a further spread or unwanted health effects. Mold spores are found everywhere indoors and out but take hold only when conditions offer enough water to feed their growth. Our technicians will find not only the mold itself but also the source of moisture that contributes to its rapid multiplication. Common places mold can hide include under woodwork or wallpaper, beneath counters and in cabinets or vanities, around window air conditioners or central air conditioning vents or behind curtains or other window coverings. Anywhere condensation or minor leaks occur can encourage mold without the red flag of obvious water damage, and our experts will find the source.
SERVPRO will manage your mold problem first by isolating and eliminating the water. Then the mold will be contained by Applied Microbial Remediation technicians trained through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). State of the art air filtration techniques will protect your home and family from the fungi, and any affected materials are removed. Personal property and home furnishings will be cleaned properly if possible or discarded should it be necessary, and the water damage will also be restored, including the use of Applied Structural Drying techniques if indicated.
Approach mold remediation the smart way with a call to SERVPRO of South Nashville at 615-331-0200. Speedy resolution of a moisture and mold problem is available quickly and with a complete understanding of the challenges of keeping an infestation under control. Team up with us to make the frustration of musty smells and ugly strains "Like it never even happened.”
