SERVPRO Explains to Matteson Property Owners the Need for Professional Mold Remediation
How Mold Damage Spreads Through Your Matteson Home
Moisture and dampness throughout certain areas of your Matteson home can facilitate the growth of fungus or mold. While these situations often get disregarded by being less damaging or traumatic as other disasters that could affect your property, it requires the same fast response and quick action to keep from becoming a situation that is out of control.
Remediating mold damage in your Matteson home is something that you should leave to professionals with the equipment and expertise to do the job thoroughly and correctly the first time. Part of understanding the urgency for this action by our SERVPRO team is better appreciating how quickly the organisms can spread and move throughout your property, affecting multiple materials and surfaces over a brief period.
Mold spores naturally occur in almost every environment that you encounter throughout your day. They exist on a microscopic level, making them impossible to see with the naked eye, but a persistent threat when conditions throughout your home change. To colonize, spores only require a damp environment that persists for a few days and organic material suitable to house the organism as it seats, spreads, and grows. This organism feeds on the organic material that hosts the colony, allowing it to spread farther, but also consequently damaging the material itself considerably in the process.
Without containment strategies in place by our SERVPRO remediation specialists, spores from the active colony can spread quickly throughout this affected area. They can also travel through HVAC systems to colonize in areas far away from the initial location. Our team of IICRC certified AMRT technicians can arrive quickly to not only set up this containment field to prevent the spread of the organism, but also to assess the full scope of the damage, and ultimately remove the colonies from your property.
Mold can be a destructive force for your home that can affect the house itself as well as those living inside of it. Give our SERVPRO of Matteson-Homewood applied microbial remediation technicians a call anytime that you need us at (708) 747-9925.
