Working with Bridgewater to Residents to Remediate Growing Mold Damage Concerns

Bridgewater Mold Damage

A water spill or flood in your home can cause issues further down the line as a result of insufficient drying of the structure. Among these issues is microbial growth. Microbes are tiny living organisms that can grow into a problem with the right conditions for growth. Mold issues can creep up unnoticed in dark, dank areas of the home. These areas may include beneath carpets, on insulation, subfloor pad, or the area between floor and subfloor. It would help if you had remediation once you notice the symptoms of mold growth, which may include stale odors or visible grey, green, or black mold colonies.

Like all living things, water is essential to microbial growth, which means there is some investigative work in remediating the mold damage in your Bridgewater home. Remediation technicians of SERVPRO may need to temporarily detach carpets or probe them using moisture meters to assess whether there are damp spots beneath or within the carpet. Disposable items like subfloor pads may also need to be cut up for removal and to allow inspection of the subfloor.

Establishing a mold damage remediation project requires careful planning and organization. Mold spores- the reproductive element of the organism- are invisible to the naked eye and can travel on footwear, clothing, or air-currents in the property. These tiny organisms need containment to make sure that a minor infestation does not get out of hand during the remediation process. When restoring mold, SERVPRO may need to demolish, agitate, move equipment, or carry materials in and out of the building. Without proper quarantining, these actions can lead to the spreading of the infestation.

When remediating microbial growth in a safe, controlled workspace, there are two vital considerations. The first is to find the source of moisture and perform adequate drying of the subfloor or cavity when damp spots exist. The second is to remove mold along with any porous infested materials. SERVPRO takes an extra safeguard against returning molds by applying biocides or anti-microbial treatments to surfaces, which can help reduce mold from growing again.

Microbial remediation is a highly-qualified operation that requires expert care and attention to detail. Contact SERVPRO of The Bridgewaters at (508) 697- 5439.
