Is Your Tallahassee Home To Mold? Call SERVPRO for Remediation
Maintaining Lower Humidity Can Reduce Mold in Tallahassee Homes
Water loss incidents can create a challenging situation in Tallahassee properties that leave the home vulnerable to microbial growth. Without adequate drying and thorough moisture detection practices, your house can remain vulnerable to the development of mold colonies when lingering dampness goes undetected. Relative humidity (RH) is also a critical factor as well, as these moist conditions can permit the colonization of spores when combined with the traditionally warmer climate for properties in the area.
With how directly humidity and moisture content levels affect mold remediation in Tallahassee homes, it is crucial to have a team that can address these preliminary symptoms before hazardous microbial growth gets out of control. Our SERVPRO professionals have many strategies to reduce moisture content but regulating the RH levels in the house requires extra steps.
Gaining control of the humidity levels in your house can help to reduce the migration and spread of mold effects, and it can also limit how the organism can move from one organic material to another. As containment is already a large part of our remediation efforts, these same barriers and 6mil plastic sheeting can help to regulate ventilation, improve the efficiency of drying efforts, and reduce debris and spore circulation if controlled demolition is necessary by a third-party contractor.
Desiccant dehumidifiers can get installed and run through within the containment zone to help reduce the present conditions to facilitate mold growth. These units exhaust heated air, which can in turn help to reduce the saturation of construction materials and contents that have not gotten removed from this affected area.
Once we can regulate moisture content and humidity, remediation then only boils down to removing the present mold with effective and non-damaging tactics such as dry ice blasting and soda blasting. Media blasting is considered an abrasive technique but can often protect the hosting material while removing the colony. We always look to restore before replacement, and these approaches can help us preserve installed materials.
We strive to address mold concerns immediately because we understand how quickly these situations can get out of control. Many look to our SERVPRO of Central Tallahassee for our experience and cutting-edge equipment in mold remediation projects, and we can help you however you need.
