Youngsville, NC: Does your home or business have a mold issue?

Mold Remediation Youngsville, NC: Does your home or business have a mold issue? SERVPRO of Franklin,Vance and Granville Counties cleaning up mold in a Youngsville, NC business

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:



  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.

  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.

  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.

  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.


 


If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.


If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today – 919-339-4848 or 252-433-0005

A basement can flood at any time, although flooding most often occurs during heavy rainfall.

  • A blocked or failed sewer lateral pipe
  • Heavy rain causes surface water to pool around your home
  • Storm sewer backup
  • Sanitary sewer backup
  • Foundation drainage failure
  • Water supply-line break or hot-water tank failure
  • And many more

Do I have mold?

Mold Remediation Do I have mold? Yes, you have mold!

This is a question we answer a lot. Mold is everywhere. The concern is when there is high levels of mold with your home. There are some precautionary steps you can follow.

1. Do you have a vapor barrier installed in your crawlspace? Are your basement wall leaking?  Install a 6 mil plastic in at least 90% of your crawlspace and keep the foundation vents open for air flow. If water is intruding from your basement walls, consider a French drain, or waterproofing the exterior walls.

2. Inspect the perimeter of your home for clogged gutters, put PVC tube extensions on the downspouts to direct water away from the foundation, remove  dead leaves and yard debris from the homes foundation

3. Bathroom exhaust fan should be ran while taking a shower and then at least 20 minutes after to help decrease the humidity.

4. Buy a thermometer with a humidity reading to monitor the indoor humidity level . Mold likes to grow with humidity above 60%

5. Run the AC or heat  when you are not at home

These are just a few things to consider to aid the prevention of mold. Call us and we will glad to answer any of your questions! Call SERVPRO Franklin, Vance and Granville Counties at 252-433-0005
