Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Don’t stress, we will take care of the mold mess.

7/11/2019 (Permalink)

With all of our experience we can attest that mold is found in even the cleanest of homes. It is when mold colonies become too large, or they are disturbed by either wind or movement around the mold, that the mold spreads sending off spores to colonize other areas.

As a homeowner, it is important to know about about mold damage and what it means to them. Much of the information about mold searched for online focuses on black mold. However, all mold can create harmful affects. The color does not matter.

Mold is found everywhere. Mold is found in dry locations, especially moist ones. It is in the moister, more humid areas that can grow most easily, but those located in drier areas only need to wait for moisture to find them before they can grow and send off spores of their own. SERVPRO of Silver Spring North is trained in handling mold so that it does not spread, and is contained adequately during the removal process. We also know how to repair mold damage, and when restoration work should include replacing materials.

Cleaning mold, when found, should be done very carefully in order not to spread it to other areas that may not currently have a mold issue. It is best not to disturb any mold found, but instead contact our SERVPRO and we will come to your home to get rid of the mold! Don’t stress, we will take care of the mold mess. We will make your home look “Like it never even happened.”
