Crew going to work If you notice excess moisture or smell mold in your home, contact SERVPRO of Marietta West.

The large green truck is a tell-tale sign that someone has experienced a problem within their home and SERVPRO is coming to the rescue. 

You may think of SERVPRO as the experts for repairing water damage or the remnants of a fire, but did you know we also specialize in mold remediation? 

Read on to get the facts about mold—and why the SERVPRO team should be your first call when you spot those green spores or smell that musty odor. 

Why Is Mold a Hazard? 

Mold is sneaky, fast-spreading and grows quickly in damp conditions. In fact, mold can begin growing within 24 to 48 hours of water damage, or even of a seemingly inconsequential water spill that isn’t cleaned fast enough. 

While you may think of mold as an aesthetic blemish, it can actually cause structural damage over time. Dry rot is the most common form of damage done by mold growth. It occurs when one species of fungi eats away at the hard part of wood that gives it strength. This can compromise the sturdiness of the wood itself. 

What Causes Mold Growth? 

Mold growth is caused by excess moisture. It can grow on virtually any surface where moisture is present. A leaky pipe, loose window frame allowing rain inside or damp upholstery are just a few examples of where mold can quickly pop up. 

Interior flooding is also a culprit for mold growth. If the area is not dried entirely and left damp, mold growth is inevitable over time. 

Why You Should Call SERVPRO When You Spot Mold 

Can’t you simply clean up the green spores you can see if mold is present in your home? No! That’s why a team of experts is needed. 

Mold is present everywhere, both outside in nature and inside your home. It contains microscopic spores that aren’t even visible to the naked eye. You can’t completely remove it, but you can remediate a mold problem. 

What is remediation? It means getting mold levels back to their normal baseline—a safe, natural level where it isn’t intruding on your living space or threatening your house’s structure. 

When you reach out to SERVPRO of Marietta West about mold, we’ll immediately jump into action with a patented process for remediation. After visiting your property and assessing mold damage, our first step will be to find and remove the underlying source of water or moisture.

From there, we use advanced equipment to contain the mold present in your house and filter spores out of the air. Then we remove the mold and anything that’s been infested by mold using antifungal and antimicrobial treatments. 

The work isn’t done even after the mold is removed! We follow the project through to completion by cleaning the contents of your home and your belongings, then restoring any drywall or other parts of your structure that have been damaged. We aren’t done until you’re completely satisfied with the results. 

If you notice excess moisture or smell mold in your home, contact SERVPRO of Marietta West right away to start the remediation process. We’re here 24/7 to take your call!
