What Should I Do If I Find Mold Damage Mid Renovation?

Mold damage is something you should never allow to sit in your Palm Harbor home. The truth is that there are always mold spores inside your home. It is impossible to be rid of them, and they are harmless as mere spores. However, should moisture activate the spores and feed them, your home could find itself in trouble.

For example, recently, a local homeowner found mold damage in their Palm Harbor / Dunedin home while remodeling the inside. Many people see fixer-uppers as an investment opportunity, and for a good reason. Real estate is a fantastic way to make some extra money to support yourself with. However, many people do not find themselves prepared for the twists and turns that often get slung at them during DIY projects.

In this recent case, they "discovered mold" damage during the middle of their remodel. Fortunately, the owners acted fast and called "SERVPRO to remediate." Fast action leads to more favorable results when it comes to the restoration process, as time is the ally of mold damages.

Our technicians found active mold spores and discovered mold in the "handler closet." Microbial growth was also detected in the "air duct system, and everything had to be professionally cleaned." Leaving this kind of fungus unaddressed could cause severe damages to the foundation of your home, as it can eat away at organic material, such as wood.

Our technicians are highly trained and have IICRC-certification (Institution of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification.) To clean the microbial growth, we ran "air scrubbers" to filter active spores out of the house. We also used "dehumidifiers to dry the air" and prevent further growth. Our SERVPRO technicians can also use antimicrobial cleaning agents, to help ensure any lingering fungus is eliminated.

If your home needs mold remediation, don't wait. Get in touch with SERVPRO of Dunedin / Palm Harbor South by dialing (727) 793-1333. We're open and ready to help you.
