Common Sources Of Mold Damage In South Miami
Remediation of Mold in a Home or Condo
Mold damage can be a problem in your southern Florida home even without storm damage or an appliance malfunction or leak. Mold needs moisture and organic materials to grow, and the humid conditions often present in our community, with or without severe weather, can encourage the growth of this family of fungi inside your home.
If you discover mold growth in a South Miami condo or home contact SERVPRO for an expert consultation followed by an effective remediation plan to eliminate the musty odors and damaging effects these organisms can have on your home’s structures, furnishings, and personal belongings.
Improperly vented bathrooms, laundry areas or kitchens can harbor mold growth as water is almost always present and needs to be removed from surfaces and the air itself to prevent spores from blossoming into full-blown outbreaks. Ambient indoor humidity levels of over 60 percent are common causes of mold damage as many strains of fungi do not need standing water or saturated materials to promote growth. Air conditioners or dehumidifiers that are laboring, not clearing your environment of high humidity, are often the culprits, combining both concentrations of standing water with moisture laden air in a double dose of a microbial feeding frenzy. HVAC systems that are underperforming or simply moving the contaminated air can contribute significantly to the problem. Colonies of mold that are continuously recycled throughout your home lead to ever expanding contaminations.
