Why SERVPRO Fixes All Aspects Of Mold Damage In Maricopa

Mold develops easily in properties if conditions are perfect. Mold requires different things to grow, but in most cases, only sufficient moisture is usually unavailable. So, whenever there is excess moisture in a property, growth starts developing within 24 to 48 hours. Fixing the resulting damage requires different steps including cleaning and drying the property. With the advanced skills, our IICRC certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians have, it is possible to address all the issues arising from a mold infestation in your property.

The level of mold damage in Maricopa properties depends mostly on the materials present in the affected areas. Organic materials like wood are affected most because mold feeds on them to fuel its growth. A material like concrete does not have organic properties to feed mold, but since moisture takes a long time to permeate through concrete, it can create a moisture reservoir, which affects other materials in the area. Understanding these underlying factors in each case of mold growth helps our SERVPRO technicians create the correct response approach.

Unsightly patches on surfaces and musty smells are the most apparent effects of mold damage. Eliminating these effects through cleanup is easy. However, growth also leads to the deterioration of surfaces because the hyphae grow deep into the affected surface in search of organic materials. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate the affected materials to establish the level of porosity. If the material is porous and the growth is extensive, we opt to replace the material instead of cleaning. On non-porous surfaces, we use professional antimicrobial cleaning products to remove residues and inhibit future growth.

Since moisture presence can keep fueling future mold outbreaks, it is necessary to establish all sources of moisture and dry all wet materials. Our SERVPRO technicians rely on a variety of moisture detection equipment like thermo-hygrometers, which help establish humidity levels in the affected areas, unaffected area, outside the structure and the exhaust from dehumidifiers ensuring we run an effective drying process. We also have high-speed air movers for fast evaporation and industrial grade dehumidifiers for effective moisture extraction from the air.

Controlling mold problems is more manageable with professional assistance. Call SERVPRO of Casa Grande at (520) 421-1894 assist. We're Faster To Any Size Disaster.
