Why Drying is Vital for Mold Damage Remediation in Pleasant Hill

9/6/2017 (Permalink)

At SERVPRO, we thoroughly dry behind and underneath cabinets to prevent mold from regrowth.

Proper Drying Reduces the Risk of Mold Returning in Your Home

Mold damage is a headache for any homeowner. Those tell-tale black or green spores and unpleasant musty smell make your home much less pleasant. Naturally, you want to deal with mold growth as quickly as you can. SERVPRO knows that swift action is key to successful remediation, which is why we recommend taking action as soon as you can.

Your first step is calling SERVPRO. Our IICRC-certified remediation experts are on hand to deal with any mold damage problem in Pleasant Hill. Our team arrives equipped with everything needed to clean away the fungus and restore your home.

However, cleaning is just one stage of the remediation process. Drying is a vital element of mold damage cleanup and is key to successful remediation.

Why is drying so necessary? Drying is essential because the fungus needs moisture to grow. If you clean away the visible mold but do not tackle the underlying moisture, there is a much greater chance of fungal regrowth, which is something no homeowner wants.

Our remediation experts assess the moisture levels in the area where the mold has grown. The next step is to dry both the area and the items in it. For example, we tent couch cushions and prop up mattresses so we can dry under and around them. If you have mold in a bathroom or kitchen cabinet, we dry under and behind the cabinet, so no hidden pockets of moisture are left behind.

We use a combination of dehumidifiers, air movers, and box fans to achieve our drying goal. We train our teams to position dehumidifiers and air movers in just the right numbers and configuration to achieve optimum results. We also test moisture levels regularly throughout the drying process to ensure we reach the goal. We test under floors, inside walls, or behind furniture if necessary to make sure everything is dry.

Thorough drying reduces the risk of mold regrowth. For help with mold in Lilburn, Pleasant Hill, and surrounding areas, call SERVPRO of North Lilburn at (770) 709-3266 for help.
