Mold Damage Remediation Services in The Spokane Valley
SERVPRO is Here to Help Your Residential Mold Damage Emergency
It is easy to ignore a simple pipe leakage when it happens, but the results can be costly. Dripping water from burst pipes can penetrate the walls and eventually find its way onto carpets and other house items. Failure to dry these items within 24-48 hours can lead to mold and mildew growth. These fungi thrive in moist environments. In the house, they can grow on cardboards, ceiling, tiles, wood products, foods, plants, fabrics, drywall, carpets, and other materials. While they have their purpose in nature, they can cause health effects.
Following a water damage incident, it is important to have a mold remediation company check your house for mold growth. If you are looking for mold damage control services in The Spokane Valley, SERVPRO has qualified technicians with adequate equipment for the job. Our techniques are up to par with IICRC recommendations, and our emergency response is quick and efficient.
Water damage situations provide an excellent environment for mold growth. Molds feed on organic materials such as natural fibers, drywall, paper, and wood. Additionally, they thrive in typical building temperatures of between 68 and 86 degrees F (meaning either extremely hot or cold temperatures). Some can survive in low relative humidity levels (up to 65 degrees low), but most prefer lots of moisture. To control their growth, our technicians use different equipment to reduce the RH to below 60%.
The purpose of mold damage remediation is to eliminate any mold growing inside the house and to prevent exposing you to large amounts of mold. To do this effectively, SERVPRO technicians have to calculate the extent of the contamination. Indeed, mold does not always grow in one place.
Based on our calculations, we can determine the most efficient method and products to use. The idea is to stop the water source, remove all moisture, and dry the area completely to avoid future mold growth. Air movers are particularly useful in drying a mold-damaged area. They create airflow at the surface level, allowing moisture into the air in the form of vapor. Drier air fills up the vacuum created, thus accelerating evaporation.
