Resolving Mold Damage

Finding mold in your Oak Island home might seem like a nightmare, but it does not have to be all that stressful. While you might find the urge to try and battle the fungus yourself, there is a distinct reason that remediation specialists exist. If you happen to see (or even just smell) mold growing in your house, here is what you can do to take care of the problem quickly and efficiently.

First of all, you have to understand that mold damage can cause health effects, so it is best to remedy the problem as quickly as possible. You might be under the impression that many people just deal with the growth of colonies in moisture-ridden basements or other common areas of their house, this simply is not the case. Others are under the assumption that home remedies can deal with mold damage to Oak Island homes, but this would also be inaccurate.

Our SERVPRO remediation specialists are well equipped to deal with the removal of mold colonies that have seated themselves in your home. The process is thorough and intricate, as not allowing the colonies to form elsewhere or spread is a paramount priority. Preventing the spread is part of the problem with attempting to remove the mold on your own, as many do not remove the entire organism (or hyphae) from the material where it is rooted. While the surface mold might no longer be visible, the process did not remove the whole colony.

To prevent the spread of spores, your circulatory systems such as air conditioning or heat pumps get shut down until the colony removal is complete. Negative air chambers are employed to neutralize spores present around the growing fungus to prevent it spreading and growing elsewhere. Simultaneously, dehumidifying machines are pulling moisture from the air which will remove the conditions necessary for new colonies to form.

Our IICRC Certified SERVPRO technicians will deeply clean all of the affected areas to eradicate present colonies. Assessing the source of the moisture in the room will provide you with a lasting solution to prevent this issue from repeating.

Mold in your home might be familiar, but getting rid of it can be a tricky task. Our professional staff can help you through this process and restore your home. Give SERVPRO of Brunswick and South Columbus Counties a call anytime at (910) 755-6717.
