Phoenix Homes Benefit from the Mold Cleanup All Year

12/10/2019 (Permalink)

Living in a drier climate like Phoenix would lead many homeowners to believe mold is seldom an issue to worry about. Homeowners may also think that if they do spot a little mold in their home, it’s easy enough to simply research a bit and then try to remove the mold without professional help. Unfortunately, that would be a mistake that could end up causing more damage.  Regardless of the climate, homes benefit from mold cleanup all year, and its best to call the professionals at SERVPRO of East Phoenix to handle any mold infestation you may have.

Mold can occur for a variety of reasons

If you spot mold in your home, it doesn’t mean your house is less than clean, or you’re somehow to blame for having a mold infestation. Every home and business has mold... really! Mold spores are always in the air, indoors and out, awaiting the perfect conditions to activate and grow. Since mold is always present, it can be tricky to deal with when it becomes a problem. SERVPRO’s mold remediation specialists have advanced training in the life cycles of many types of mold and understand which molds need remediation. Understanding mold is the key to resolving a mold proliferation, which typically occurs with water intrusion, like a roof leak or leaking water line.

How do you know you have a mold problem?

You know you have a mold problem when you smell an earthy, musty odor, which may indicate hidden mold behind drywall or under carpeting. Or you may see streaking and staining of surfaces. If you suspect there’s an issue, it’s a good idea to call a mold remediation company to come in and inspect your home. Mold comes in a variety of colors and textures. It slowly destroys homes, building structures, and personal belongings if not remediated by trained technicians. 

Why use SERVPRO of East Phoenix for mold remediation?

Trained SERVPRO technicians receive certification in remediation techniques and use these efficient protocols to almost rid your home of mold issues and ideally avoid future problems. Again, keep in mind that complete extermination and elimination of mold is not possible as mold spores are always present, all year long. During our wet monsoons might seem like the ideal time for mold issues, but the fact is, water issues of any kind, such as a plumbing leak, can cause mold infestation any time of year.

When you experience mold, our mold remediation pros to get to work immediately. The first task is to contain the mold. We use physical barriers like plastic sheeting when the mold outbreak is small. Negative air pressure machines arrive with us when larger colonies present. They filter the air and vent residues outside of living areas, ensuring that spores and other particulates do not circulate in your home’s atmosphere. Next, any porous surface permeated is removed for proper disposal. We apply professional-grade antimicrobials to the affected area and vacuum up debris using equipment with HEPA filtration systems. If needed, our crew replaces any building material removed with the mold, and paints, stains or otherwise finish the area to the way it did before the mold infestation.

We finish the job by addressing the cause

No mold remediation is complete until we find and arrange for the repair of the water source, causing the mold to grow in the first place. Plumbing or roof leaks are common reasons, but even high humidity encourages mold growth, which can often be the case during Arizona monsoons.
