Why choose SERVPRO for mold issues in your home or business

4/28/2021 (Permalink)

Do you have mold issues in your home or business? SERVPRO of Bloomfield can help!

When mold has a food source, it can spread throughout an entire home in as little as 48 hours. Typically come spring and summer, homeowners discover mold due to a water intrusion of any size that came during the winter season.

Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, and is identifiable by a strong musty odor.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float in the air, and can enter your home through windows, doors, heating and cooling systems, or on your clothing.
  • Mold thrives on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water, and it is these colonies of mold that produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, the source of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold will return.
  • Indoor humidity needs to be below 45%, as a higher than normal indoor humidity will support the growth of mold.

Should you come across any mold issues, SERVPRO can be of service to inspect and assess your property and remediate the problem.
