Small Leaks Can Cause Mold Damage in Your Clovis Home

4/18/2019 (Permalink)

Mold Damage in Your Home

Your Clovis home might deal with its fair share of poor weather conditions and threats according to this. While the presence of flood conditions and that lasting moisture can sometimes bring about worse effects for your home, perhaps one of the biggest threats is something that you might oversee on a consistent basis; a seemingly insignificant leak. Something as important as a small, steady leak on an appliance like a water heater or washing machine might not seem like a big deal, but it could provide enough moisture for fungal growth to occur.

You might not be aware that mold spores exist naturally in the air that we breathe in and mingle throughout our homes all the time. They only become mold colonies and begin to bloom when temperature and moisture conditions allow them to, which is why a seemingly unproblematic leak might provide enough dampness to the area or the air for these spores to activate and seat on nearby surfaces. By the time that you have noticed mold damage to your Clovis home, the problem is significant enough to warrant professional services.

Resolving this issue using professional remediation services is your best decision, as our SERVPRO team gets thoroughly trained in mold remediation and restoration to IICRC standards of certification.
Our team sections off the affected areas by turning off air circulation devices in your home while the remediation process is underway. Equipment like negative air chambers and ozone machines can clean the air of spores and prevent them from spreading to new areas while colonies are getting removed. Dehumidification is a critical part of the process, as well as repairing the leak that caused the moisture in the first place to prevent a similar situation from occurring again.

Our certified technicians at SERVPRO of Clovis can help you with whatever kind of mold damage that you might discover in your home. We can be reached anytime by calling (559) 297-3429.
