Take Swift Action With Mold


One day, you notice one of your basement windows completely fogged over, but think little of it. You have been using the basement of your home for storage and are constantly in and out for various reasons.

The existence of condensation is a rather strong indication that water issues are causing excessive moisture, which means that the right conditions for mold damage exist somewhere in your Lebanon home. If the area affected by mold is big enough, it is likely to require professional mold remediation services from a certified expert. A musty, dank odor accompanies the first signs of mold intrusion into your living space. If you have recently experienced flood waters, excessive ongoing condensation, or if you have had a plumbing problem recently, and never cleaned things up properly, mold damage is developing in the area where the leak occurred, even if you cannot see it.

The last thing you want to do is to attempt the remediation yourself, especially if the affected area is larger than three square feet. A quality remediation company like SERVPRO can help you locate the moisture source, stop it, and get any mold contamination under control, quickly and efficiently, restoring a safe, healthy environment in your home. Since the visual signs of mold growth are often small, SERVPRO technicians have experienced different situations with mold issues, where homeowners have gone on for several weeks without taking action, and we would like to prevent this type of scenario from happening to you. Waiting to take care of the problem, causes more contamination to develop and additional damages to occur. You may have heard that procrastination kills, in this case, procrastination thrives.

There are several different types of mold, SERVPRO technicians experience a large variety, depending on the circumstances that exist. Certain kinds of microscopic mold spores develop into large colonies that look like ordinary dirt, while other types of mold appear blatantly white, and others develop into clusters of black spots. Small patches quickly spread over vast areas, hidden or visual. All it takes is 24 to 48-hours to spread, which means that you should take action as soon as possible if you find even the smallest mold spots developing anywhere in your home.
