Depend on Professional Mold Damage Remediation in Largo

Hurricane season can leave behind mold damage in your home, rely on SERVPRO to remediate the damage according to EPA protocols.

Hurricane Season Can Leave Behind Mold Damage Problems

After a hurricane season full of destruction and near-misses in the Largo area, residents grow weary of responding to weather and climate-related disasters. Stories of unlicensed contractors preying on those experiencing problems such as mold growth in the aftermath also make homeowners weary of seeking help. Our reputation and inclusion in a network of disaster remediators with over 40 years in the business set those fears to rest.

The climate Largo experiences makes dealing with the potential for mold damage a constant reality. Mold spores coexist with us everywhere, indoors and out, worldwide, but the warmth, rainfall totals, and humidity on the Gulf Coast increase the risk that spores absorb water and multiply. The skills and experience of our mold remediation crew help you remove current mold colonizations and plan to avoid microbial outbreaks in the future.

Often a homeowner tries to manage a mold outbreak without professional help, thinking a bleach solution or other over the counter remedy is just as effective. The result rarely is satisfactory, as mold recurs or even worsens. This relates to the fact bleach and other ordinary cleaners contain large quantities of water, commonly over 90 percent. Spraying the diluted solution on mold merely lightens the stain, but does not go deep enough into a porous structure to destroy the mold colony. In fact, the water ironically feeds the mold, resulting in more, rather than less infestation. SERVPRO follows the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocol on mold remediation with proven positive outcomes.

Mold colonies must be removed, sometimes including portions of your home’s structural components or fixtures if they are compromised. SERVPRO also takes specific steps to contain the mold particles during removal, using barriers and equipment such as air scrubbers and HEPA-filtered vacuums. Even a minute bit of mold left behind can grow into a whole new colony. We apply mold remediation industry-developed and proven antimicrobials to inhibit future mold outbreaks in the affected area.

Solving a mold problem necessitates finding the source of moisture fueling the activation and growth and ridding your dwelling of it. No company can promise mold elimination, but SERVPRO educates our customers on steps that cut off the water mold needs to multiply. Expect us to be relentless as we find leaks, seepage, recesses of water from past flooding or spills, and high humidity in your home. Repairing the infrastructure that allows water to intrude inside your home is the key to successful mold remediation.

SERVPRO of Largo is your trusted mold remediation leader in our community. Call us at (727) 586-0060 if you even suspect a mold problem and we will evaluate and help you mitigate the situation.
