Mold Damage On Your Property

Mold damage is perhaps one of the most stressful types of damage that you can find inside of your home. Mold can cause health issues, it smells, it looks unsightly, and it can steadily damage the structure of your home over time. Mold is directly responsible for the decay of organic material, so wood and any other structural component made from organic sources inside of your home is in danger. It is essential to deal with mold as soon as you begin detecting it; a musty odor is enough of a sign to call for professional services.

Due to their unique geographic location adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean, homes located inside the city of Daytona Beach can be in danger of mold damage. Storms and excessive humidity are only a couple of sources that can cause mold to multiply and grow. Truthfully, there are and were already mold spores in your home. They are everywhere, and it is impossible to rid your home of them entirely. However, when the spores come in contact with moisture, it allows a colony of mold to grow. Mold can only continue to grow worse until the damage is remediated professionally, so getting the experts there quickly can help ensure the longevity of your home.

SERVPRO strives to arrive at your home quickly after receiving your call. We send an Estimator to investigate the damage, explain the remediation process, and answer any questions. Secondly, our IICRC-certified techs arrive with advanced equipment to combat the mold.

Our SERVPRO techs can section off the contaminated area of your home with polyethylene plastic sheets so the spores from the colony cannot spread while remediated. We can set up air scrubbers with HEPA filters to capture spores and neutralize the musty scent they cause. Afterward, our techs can clean the mold off of non-porous materials, disinfect the area, and spray and antifungal agent to help prevent mold growth in the future. Any porous materials that the mold has set into have to be torn out and thrown away as the mold cannot be thoroughly cleaned.

When you find mold damage, do not dawdle. Dial (386) 788-0358 to contact SERVPRO of South Daytona Beach / Port Orange. We strive to remediate the damage as swiftly as possible.
