Excess Moisture Can Spell Mold Trouble For Your Dublin Home
Extensive Mold Damage Caused By Water Seeping In And Activating Tiny Microbes In Dublin Homes
Every home in the Dublin area holds many different microbes. Some of these can potentially cause health effects while others rarely cause any problems at all. Others only become in need of the homeowner's attention after specific changes occur in the home's environment. A common one is water that appears in locations that should always remain dry. These situations include sudden events like flooding or water leaks and drips along feed lines to appliances.
Either situation can cause significant mold damage in your Dublin home. Not all mold in a home comes from the same strain or variety, either. However, all types of mold require the presence of available water to remain in an active state. Stripping mold of its access to water causes it to revert to a dormant state and discontinue growing. SERVPRO professionals receive training and learn that shutting or sealing off sources of water and preventing mold from gaining future access helps prevent future outbreaks of mold growth.
When we begin the process of remediating mold damage, we remove any water in the area and locate the source so we can eliminate it from the area. We use infrared imaging devices that detect hidden water, so we quickly find it, and we also use moisture meters to determine the amount of moisture contained in walls and other materials. With these instruments, we can accurately determine the situation and provide the homeowner with more information about the situation. Once we complete our remediation work, we check for the presence of water again to ensure that the repairs corrected all sources of water.
Removing the mold through different methods often requires a chamber, which we quickly build. These chambers help produce a negative pressure containment area around the mold damaged section of your home. We may need to build more than one of these when mold appears in several areas within a property. Highly effective at containing dust, debris, and mold that might contaminate other areas, we bag up anything that leaves the chamber in doubled bags. We increase the chamber's effectiveness by using HEPA filters on our air scrubbers and vacuums.
