MOLD MYTHS ARE REAL!! Prattville Property Owners Turn to SERVPRO for the Facts and Remediation
The Misinformation about Mold Damage in Your Prattville House
In the restoration and remediation industry that we belong to, we have found that bad information and myths pose the greatest threats to the Prattville community that we serve. While disasters still occur on a regular basis that requires our expertise and training to overcome, our technicians also battle the common beliefs of homeowners about legitimate threats to their home like mold growth.
You may or may not be among the group of Prattville homeowners that do not fully understand mold damages or even consider them a threat to your house. In this case, a lack of credible information available has led to a misunderstanding about the hazards and potential health risks of mold colonization in your house. The more you understand about this organism, the better you can appreciate the need to remove it immediately upon discovery. The myths abound in great number.
One of the first points that you need to know about mold growth in your home is that it is something that continually gets worse the longer it gets ignored. In coupling this information with the understanding that every type of mold that can colonize within your home poses risks to both the construction materials, contents, and even the occupants of your house, you now have a situation that is steadily getting out of control. Our SERVPRO remediation technicians have encountered many homes where the mold colonies had overtaken materials like drywall and wood framing to the point that they were unsalvageable.
The organism feeds on organic materials, and it just so happens that nearly all of the components used in modern construction fit this criterion. Mold growth in your home can quickly spread as a result, given so many surfaces and items that provide a location for spores to seat and a food source to thrive. Our SERVPRO rapid response team can isolate a growing colony and work to preserve materials through the use of antimicrobial solutions, soda blasting, and sanding to remove the organism entirely.
Mold growth is something that every homeowner should take a few minutes to educate themselves about, especially those that might be under the impression that mold is harmless. If you discover a colony or need an inspection for present colonies or potential problem areas, give our SERVPRO of Prattville remediation specialists a call today at (334) 358-1186.
