What You Should Do When You Find Mold Growing Around Your Bathtub Piping
Team SERVPRO Locates Mold Whether It is Out in the Open or Hidden Behind Walls
It is a fact that excessive moisture can cause mold damage. As it is, your bathroom is a place where water can be freely used every day. Your bathtub or sink is where that water usually flows, and those materials are meant to be in contact with it. However, behind your tub and inside your walls, a leaking pipe can cause mold to spread and grow out of control. Fortunately, there is professional help nearby that can assist with your growing mold infestation.
The structure of your residence can become weakened by the damaging mold in Ponce Inlet. Unlike your bathtub, the wooden materials behind it are not meant to come in contact with water. Mold is so damaging to wood because it eats away and rots organic material.
SERVPRO can send qualified technicians to your home. We can inspect the mold damage and then section off the infected area to prevent spores from spreading; agitating the mold puts the spores airborne again, and it is essential not to allow them to spread. We can tear out the porous materials the mold has invaded behind your tub and help you find a contractor who can fix the structure and a plumber to fix the leak.
Afterward, our technicians can take steps to prevent mold damage in the future. An antifungal agent can be thoroughly sprayed to ensure that all the spores in the area are killed. Spraying the agent between the wall cavity can help reduce the chances of mold growing again.
SERVPRO knows that mold can often leave a musty smell behind. We can use advanced technology like air scrubbers that have activated carbon filters. The filters absorb the air, odors and all, filter them out, and then release clean and fresh air. We strive to make sure that you feel "Like it never even happened."
