Is It Possible for a Niagara Falls Home to Have Unseen Mold Damage?
SERVPRO Techs Have Extensive Training for Handling Mold Damage
It is not unusual for mold to establish colonies and spread for an extended period before any visible signs. There are, however, small signals that an infestation is present.
Mold damage in a Niagara Falls property is always a symptom of another issue that needs addressing. To survive, mold needs interior humidity levels to remain over 50%, temperatures at least in the 70s, and something organic to consume, such as sheetrock or wood. Typical reasons include leaks, poor ventilation, and the aftereffects of flood damage. Once it invades the home, it will not stop until remediated. SERVPRO techs use various types of equipment to pinpoint the actual size of the mold infestation.
Reducing the ability for the spores to spread throughout the home is paramount. Once the worksite gets defined, the techs use methods such as:
- Physical barriers
- Negative air chambers
- Specialized air filtration equipment that traps airborne spores in the HEPA filters
