Mold Remediation Is Mold Removal In Your Fort Lauderdale Home Even Possible? Mold appears everywhere, in the air that we breathe, our food, water, and each surface that we make contact with on a daily basis.

Mold Removal

When someone uses the word ‘removal,' whether you consciously recognize it or not, you expect that person or entity to take something away, abolish something unwanted.

However, when it comes to mold removal in your Fort Lauderdale home, total removal of mold is never going to be possible, regardless of how much a company claims that their services perform at this level. Mold is, in fact, a regular part of our ecosystem, appearing indoors and outdoors in every city, state, and country around the world.

A company that provides you with mold remediation services, like SERVPRO, allows you access to the equipment and experienced technicians necessary to control mold growth in your home, not remove it. Their services help limit the conditions that make mold a problem while also providing you with the cleaning and repairs necessary to make your house a home, again.

Mold appears everywhere, in the air that we breathe, our food, water, and each surface that we make contact with on a daily basis. We bring mold spores into our homes every day, without even knowing it. There are even some mold species that thrive in harsh conditions, such as extreme cold, acidic solvents, and petroleum products.

However, the molds you need to worry about love dark, damp, hidden locations throughout your home. Areas such as the inside of your walls, in your ceiling, crawlspaces, basement, and even in your attic, all of which make a perfect feeding ground for mold if the right conditions exist. Simple things, such as a small leak in your roof allows water to enter your home, causing significant damage if left unattended long enough.

SERVPRO technicians utilize a variety of equipment including infrared moisture detectors and hygrometers to locate water anywhere in your home. When found, technicians use water extractors, air movers, dryers, and other attachments to get water out of even the smallest spaces.

If mold exists, a proper technician, like those offered at SERVPRO, uses the proper techniques to restore or replace contaminated materials physically. Chemicals should only serve as a method of controlling the spread of mold spores during the remediation process, never used as a sole treatment approach.
