Is Mold Growing in Your Tallahassee Bathroom?

3/5/2019 (Permalink)

Why SERVPRO Is Mold Growing in Your Tallahassee Bathroom? High moisture levels in bathrooms provide the right environment for mold growth.

Improper Ventilation Can Cause Mold to Grow in Your Tallahassee Bathroom

Showering in a tiny bathroom can be awkward due to the lack of space, but the problem can become significantly worse if a lack of proper ventilation causes mold damaged inside it. When steam builds up in the bathroom as the shower runs, it is usually taken care of by a fan in the ceiling. However, a broken fan or incorrectly installed ventilation causes excess moisture to linger. 

As family members take showers, the leftover steam and condensation can cause mold damage inside of your Tallahassee bathroom. You may begin to smell the musty odor before you see the mold, or you may spot it blooming on the wall. However, the way you detect the mold is not relevant; what is essential is that you contact us for help as soon as you do find it. 

Here at SERVPRO, we're known for three key factors which make us the ideal company to work with during a damage crisis inside of your home. Our technicians are excellently trained, we always come to your home with advanced technology designed to fight the damage inside, and we pride ourselves on our fast response time. At SERVPRO, We're Faster to Any Sized Disaster. 

Once our techs arrive at your home, they can launch right into investigating the damage and developing a remediation strategy. During this period, SERVPRO can determine which techniques may be necessary to remediate the mold damage and what should be done to ensure that the process goes smoothly. 

As the mold damage is still in the very early stages of development, we can block off any vents and then begin the remediation. SERVPRO can use a disinfectant to clean the mold damage from the surface of your bathroom walls. We can also use an antifungal agent to ensure that mold does not regrow. From there, we can advise you on how to fix the ventilation problem in your bathroom, before leaving your home to you in its preloss condition. 

After you find mold in your home, always call for help as soon as you can. Speak with SERVPRO of Prattville by phoning (334) 358-1186. Night or day, we're ready to come to your aid.

Why SERVPRO Ouch!! Busted Pipe and Major Wetumpka Home Flooding!! Call SERVPRO Why SERVPRO for Water Extraction from Carpets in Wetumpka? We Have the Equipment and the Technicians!!

Why SERVPRO? For Professional Water Extraction In Wetumpka Homes

When water spreads through Wetumpka structures, the effects can run from simply annoying to stripping out carpets, floors, walls, and more. Much of the damage depends on how high the water rose and how long it remained in place before a professional company can remove or extract it. Clean water and Black Water from exterior flooding present different methods..
 
So why choose SERVPRO for water extraction in Wetumpka? You don’t need us to clean the full-size replica of the Temple of Hera, but for area homes, no other local agency has our experience or our access to a nationwide network of equipment, cleaning agents, and training.
 
Extraction is the third of six steps we take to restore every home after water damage. Before our technicians bring in the equipment needed to get the water out, they have to establish contact with the owner and perform an initial assessment of the damage.
 
Now, SERVPRO restorations teams use a combination of devices to remove and extract the majority of water inside the home. For clean, standing water, that means one of the various sized, commercial pumps we keep on-hand. For most homes, our technicians can remove it within a day.
 
For water trapped in carpets or between wooden floorboards, they switch to smaller devices called extractors. For hallways, closets, and small areas, team members use handheld wands. In larger rooms, they have the option of using self-propelled extractors that have a platform which allows the technician to stand on them while under operation. We call these devices Rovers.
 
With both types of devices, operators can adjust both the vacuum speed and applied heat. The option lets them reduce the amount of time needed to dry the carpets and floors without accidentally damaging either.
 
After completing extraction, our team members can then move on to the final three steps needed to restore area homes. Drying property and lowering the inside humidity level, cleaning and repairing personal and structural property, and restoring items not severely damaged by the water.
 
The process to restore Wetumpka homes is not quick or easy, but SERVPRO of Prattville is here for you. Our specialists carefully go over every step to ensure you are confident in our ability to return your home to you in its original condition. To get started, call us today at (334) 358-1186.
