If the Mold is Removed, will it Return to properties in Wilmington / Lomita / S. Harbor City
When consumers find a mold infestation in Wilmington/ Lomita / S. Harbor City many ignore it or wash the surface they find it on with soap and water or vinegar. They are not too worried about the mold or the damage that it might cause to the structure or even their health.
SERVPRO has provided mold and water removal services to homes and companies in Wilmington/ Lomita/ S. Harbor City and surrounding areas for over 20 years. Our experience has been that where there is mold, there is usually a moisture problem. The combination of mold and water can, over time, destroy structures, drywall, and cupboards made from pressed wood, and yes, it will return as long as there is a source of moisture.
Mold is always present in the air outside as well as inside our homes and businesses. Maintaining a clean and dry space prevents mold from growing. Once you smell that stale, musty odor, there is a mold/moisture issue.
SERVPRO has found that proper way to manage a mold situation is:
• Remove the source of the moisture – small leaks or condensation are common
• Remove damaged materials and structures supporting mold colonies
• Apply anti-fungal and antimicrobial chemicals before restoring the area.
Can’t We Ignore the Mold?
Many clients do ignore small patches of mold or perhaps attempt to wash the affected surface. Unfortunately, as long as there is a moisture source, the mold will continue to remain, and grow. Clients who ignore the situation may have to deal with the following:
• Mold can cause health effects.
• Ongoing moisture or water leaks can compromise the structural integrity of building structures
• There may be an unpleasant stale, musty odor
