What Scenarios Can Lead to Mold Development and Damage in Morgan Hill Homes?

Threatening Conditions Can Encourage Mold growth in Morgan Hill properties. 

Mold is one of the most destructive emergencies a property can face, yet continues to be an underrated situation property owners put off solving or remedying. Prolonged exposure can require reconstruction or repairs.

The Threats of Humidity

Humidity is another cause for microbial growth and the need for mold removal in Morgan Hill homes. During specific seasons, environmental moisture content can become a considerable and threatening factor to area homes and businesses. Without the appropriate ventilation and airflow to regulate rising moisture concerns, it could result in mold development.

Unresolved Storm Damage in Area Homes

The threat of storm damage is also a persistent concern in the region, and post-flooding recovery can leave your home contending with water and moisture for several days or weeks. Mold only takes a few days to develop and can spread quickly in moist environments.

Leaking Fixtures or Plumbing

Another possibility for a source of mold damage in your home is a persistent leak or drip from aging plumbing fixtures and connections. While these situations do not often lead to widespread water damage, the moisture around the structural cavity can facilitate mold growth. Condensation and drips can impact many elements of your utilities, including:

  • Plumbing
  • Connectors
  • Fixtures
  • Drainpipes

What Can SERVPRO Do to Remove Active Mold Damage? 

There are several steps that our professionals can take to remove mold damage once it exists. Active colonization is the priority, as naturally occurring mold spores are impractical to remove completely. Several remediation approaches can eliminate colonies, beginning with surface treatments using antimicrobial products and with methods like surface sanding or media blasting. Demolition is only used as a last resort.

Once mold damage exists, there is a finite amount of time before these organisms cause irreparable harm to hosting materials. Our SERVPRO of Cumberland, Morgan & White Counties team has experience and training to be leading remediators in our service area. Call us today at (931) 250-5333.
