Items That Can Be Saved After Mold Damage in Miami
Our Technicians Quickly Evaluate the Items Damaged By Mold Based on Their Porosity and Permeability
Toxic mold is a serious threat to Miami homeowners. It feeds on organic materials and can ruin your items beyond repair. Worse still, these fungi can cause mold-related health effects. Like with all living organisms, mold and mildew require certain elements to grow and thrive. These include moisture, mold spores, proper temperatures, and, of course, carbon items. When these elements are sufficient in a given area, they create the ideal environment for mold growth.
SERVPRO is a longstanding restoration company that has been fighting mold damage in Miami homes for many years. We are proud to offer our IICRC-certified technicians to respond to your emergency when it happens. Our resources include advanced cleanup and drying equipment designed to get rid of mold growth entirely, "Like it never even happened."
SERVPRO technicians can easily remove mold damage from materials that have a solid surface, for instance glass, metal, and plastic. We use antimicrobial products and water, among other tools, in the remediation process. Porous items cannot be "safely" cleaned, treated, or effectively kept in the sun due to their "porous" nature. Mold spores build up in small spaces, increasing their chances of survival. Once they find a pore that is small, safe, and comfortable enough, the mold spores lay dormant and wait for moisture to initiate growth. Their roots grow downward, making them extremely stable on porous items.
On the other hand, "non-porous" materials are salvageable after mold damage. SERVPRO mold remediation experts can wash and dry them using special techniques because of the absence of pores. Without pores, it means that the spores cannot burrow into the item, instead remaining on the surface where they are easily expendable.
Removing mold damage from fabric clothing is easy but still requires professional assistance. Apart from safety purposes, washing alone cannot restore mold-damaged clothing to its original state. SERVPRO technicians can provide the best solution to ensure that you do not lose the item completely. It is important to clean the material sooner rather than later to reduce the risk of sustaining irreversible damage.
Research has shown that mold takes anywhere between 24 and 48 hours to make an impact. If you detect the presence of mold growth in your house, let SERVPRO of South Miami come in and assess the damage. You can reach us anytime at (305) 269-8900.
