Mold Damage Cannot Wait if Suspected in Your San Antonio Home
Never Trust Mold Damage Cleanup to Anyone but SERVPRO in San Antonio
Mold infestation is the type of problem you rarely see coming. You may expect to spot a bit of mold around your bathtub or shower, but if you start to see issues on your ceilings or walls, that is a much bigger problem. Unfortunately, mold remediation is a challenging and daunting process that is never smart for a DIY project. Due to the effects of black mold, having the pros at SERVPRO come to your San Antonio property is the safest, most effective option. We will always make it Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned!
Why contact SERVPRO for help with mold damage in San Antonio? Because we have the training, equipment, and experience to get, the job done right the first time. You should contact us for mold cleanup if:
- You start spotting mold development on your ceilings, walls, or under the bathroom or kitchen cabinets
- There is a pervasive musty-type odor within your home
- Your interior is relatively humid, or there have been several plumbing issues
Why is Mold Remediation So Challenging?
There are also countless types of mold growing inside and outdoors. All mold spores require the same elements to fester and colonize; organic materials and moisture. Homes are loaded with organic materials like wood, carpeting, paper, cotton, etc. However, the real catalyst in any mold situation is moisture. This is why so many bathrooms succumb to mildew and mold issues.
Mold remediation is exceptionally challenging for a couple of reasons. One reason is that mold can be hard to find, especially if there is a hidden plumbing leak. The other is that spores are both airborne and microscopic. These tiny spores can latch onto your hair, clothing, pets, and anything else that comes into your home. This is why it is better to have pros onsite and ready to handle all cleaning the proper way – never causing more of an issue by inadvertently disturbing mold so it travels to unimpacted areas of your home.
Why is SERVPRO the Team to Call for Mold Restoration?
We feature highly-trained IICRC-certified technicians with plenty of experience with mold projects. Our crew knows mold’s behavior, how to clean it safely, and keep it from coming back inside your home or business. The process generally includes the following:
- The identification of the moisture source, which is usually a plumbing issue that we must address before cleaning mold.
- We assess impacted areas to determine how far mold began to spread along with salvageable items and materials. Porous things like ceiling tiles and carpeting usually always require disposal.
- We clean mold infestations from your home, including patches under carpeting, above ceiling panels, under cabinetry, and behind walls.
We want all of our San Antonio customers to know that there are ways to prevent mold from coming back in the future. You can start by keeping your interior humidity levels low, no higher than 50%. Ensure you have enough ventilation and fix any known leaks with your plumbing, walls, or roof. Should you have a water spill, we also suggest calling our water mitigation team to handle it. However, if you DIY, remove and replace carpeting or upholstery that has been soaked and you cannot dry it out properly.
