Overcoming Mold Growth in Your St. Petersburg Residence

Homeowners often struggle with the moisture and dampness throughout the year in their St. Petersburg houses. While the air is often conditioned, humidity is an ever-present threat that can result in some severe effects if it does not get adequately maintained and regulated. If allowed to persist, moisture can allow naturally occurring mold spores in the environment to colonize and spread throughout your home.

A troublesome consideration is how little the average homeowner knows about fungal growth and mold damages in their St. Petersburg residence. Many have attributed the occurrence as a typical outcome that cannot get avoided, and fail to fully understand or appreciate the severity of the situation for both their property and those that occupy the house as well.

Our SERVPRO remediation technicians understand how critical it is to manage this situation immediately, and that is why we work quickly to isolate the affected area to keep the colony from spreading to new regions of your house. It is essential to assess how deeply rooted the organism is into the material to determine if our advanced removal techniques can affect the entire hyphae.

Regarding the isolation, while the remediation work takes place, our SERVPRO technicians set up specialized equipment to clean the air in this environment called air scrubbers. These have special filtering techniques that can remove nearly all of the active mold spores attempting to pass through the area. Additionally, our specialists require that air circulation equipment gets turned off throughout the remediation process to further keep your home safe from the possibility of recolonization during the removal.

While you might have been among the group of homeowners in the area that did not see the risks involved with mold growth consider that this thriving organism feeds on construction materials and items in your house, and potentially causes health effects for the occupants exposed to the colony as well. Our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg applied microbial remediation technicians are standing by to help you overcome this intruder in your home and restore the damage it has caused. Give us a call today at (727) 522-0000.
