When it comes down to it, fungi growth in your property is a hazard to be remediated.
How SERVPRO Can Help You Assess and Control Mold Growth
As a homeowner dealing with mold damage in Colorado Springs, it's essential that you do your homework and understand where and how mold grows:
First, be aware of musty odors. In many situations, this is the first indicator of mold growth.
Second, look for spots where color contrast is evident. On wallpaper and sheetrock, often this damage is very apparent and easy to recognize.
Third, always look behind shelving, dressers, paintings and other coverings to ensure that mold isn't growing or that air is cold, not ventilated, and dehumidified. Moisture is a problem. Always check rugs and pillows with a spatula or other utensil to check for dust and contaminants. Look for slimy or slippery feels on coverings, walls, or upholstery. Often these are the first signs of issues.
The problem is that many sources of mold are multifaceted. In most situations, mold can grow from roof leaks, indoor plumbing leaks, drainage issues, damp basements. HVAC units and duct work, or crawl areas, humidifiers, flooding, ventilation issues, wet clothes, condensation, steam, or even condensation on cool surfaces. SERVPR0 technicians have the IICRC certifications to detect and eliminate these conducive conditions for mold proliferation.
