What are the Signs of Mold Damage Brentwood Residents Should Look For?
We will help you keep Mold away from your Brentwood home.
Mold damage often occurs quietly behind the scenes until the symptoms become noticeable. Once discovered, remediation efforts must begin to halt the infestation.
Homes in Brentwood with mold damage give subtle signs at the beginning that are easy to miss. Once noticed, it is essential to bring in a professional mold remediation company to handle the infestation and ensure there is no cross-contamination during remediation.
Their technicians have extensive training in the restoration services industry and hold certifications as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians. They know the subtle signs of a mold infestation and the best practices for abatement.
What Signs Should Homeowners Look For?
Visible water damage is one heralding sign. The moisture creates a very hospitable environment for mold spores to thrive in. Another common cause is poor ventilation such as a bathroom exhaust fan doing a poor job porting away the humidity of showers taken by the residents. This causes moisture to collect in the attic and is a frequent contributor to mold issues. Rust on pipes and warped or buckled sheetrock is another clue your home may be host to a mold infestation.
Once the mold is growing and thriving, it eventually emits an odor. The longer the mold remains, the more pungent the smell. This problem will not diminish on its own until professional treatments eradicate the issues causing it and address the infestation.
What Does SERVPRO Do?
When there is active mold growth, the technicians bring an Industrial Hygienist when necessary to diagnose the type and severity of mold. Containment is standard during remediation to halt the spread of spores and technicians work to determine the reason for the elevated moisture supporting mold growth as well as how to fix it. Then the property is dried, cleaned, and disinfected. Technicians treat the areas where mold colonies previously existed with antimicrobial seals to inhibit their return.
At the first sign of mold damage, contact SERVPRO of Williamson County at (615) 790-9634. Our certified technicians diagnose and treat mold infestations to make them, "Like it never even happened."
