Mold Remediation for Your Humid Daytona Residence

1/17/2018 (Permalink)

Year-round moisture in Daytona makes for perfect conditions for mold to grow inside homes.

Call SERVPRO at the First Sign of Mold Damage

Daytona might be known for a lot of great things, but its thick and humid air is not one of them. What you might not realize about this almost year-round moisture lingering in the air, is that it can vastly affect the interior of your home if it is not adequately regulated. Given that the temperature is favorable or hot throughout the year, coupled with the present moisture in the air, you have met the conditions necessary to grow mold.

Contrary to popular belief, mold damage can occur in Daytona homes because of thick humidity in the air. Often, when people think of mold, they consider some dark cellar that overwhelms you with a musty smell that indicates mold colonies growing in the area. That is not how it always presents itself in your home, however. You should be vigilant about reducing the moisture in the air inside your home and regularly checking for any indications of growth on surfaces like your drywall.

If you have already discovered some, do not buy into the myth that this is an easy fix for you the homeowner. Often, DIY methods are not direct or concentrated enough to affect the entire fungal organism, and so parts of the mold colony remain below the surface that you can see. The remaining colony merely sprout back, and the spores continue to spread to nearby areas and make the problem even worse than it initially had been. 

Our SERVPRO remediation specialists are IICRC certified and experienced in removing colonies from all varieties of mold that could grow in your home. Using sophisticated equipment like scrubbers fitted with HEPA filters, our team can successfully remove the entire mold hyphae. Dehumidification along with containment of the spores prevents the spread of the colony through the remediation process. This dehumidification is an effort that you get encouraged to continue following the completion of our work.

Mold in your home can cause health effects, so it is nothing to leave alone to grow and thrive. Call our experienced, certified remediation specialists to help you reclaim your home. You can reach our team at SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange any time at (386) 788-0358.
