Could You be Making a Mistake Where Humidity and Mold in Your Lincoln Village Home are Concerned?
Leaky Pipes Not Necessary for a Residence to Sustain Mold Damage in Lincoln Village
Many residences today have built-in features to cut down on wasted energy. Several homes in Lincoln Village often have air-tight seals that prevent the loss of climate-controlled air in the exterior from escaping to the outside, and vice-versa. These homes can succumb to other situations because of their construction.
The regular activities that residents engage in during the typical day can lead to mold damage in Lincoln Village. Microbes can start affecting the home's interior as soon as water vapor levels rise. Activities that produce water vapor in large quantities include showering, cooking, and even breathing.
Typically, these activities cause no severe effects but when inside a tightly constructed home, the water vapor remains inside. Even though microbes cannot enter as easily in this type of home as they can in another one, they still exist on clothing worn outside, shoes, food, and other objects carried inside.
SERVPRO remediates mold damage wherever we locate its presence. We look for it with our moisture detectors, as mold and mildew become more active in such locations. Once found, we go to work getting it out of your house.
The remediation process can require the cutting apart and removal of damaged materials. We always try to minimize this to keep costs low and also to keep the project from taking any longer than it absolutely must. Our goal is to work as rapidly as we can while still finding all of the damaged areas and getting them fully remediated.
Professional cleaning of personal belongings and other household contents needing attention due to mold damage is another service we provide at SERVPRO. If space permits, we can do this on-site. If we need more space than your home allows for the set-up of our equipment, we can box these items up and do the work at our secure location. We always treat your possession with the care they deserve, as well as give you a detailed inventory of each box. We continually update these lists as we perform the cleaning and restoration work, so you never have to guess about a specific item's location.
To prevent mold damage in the future, we recommend a heavy duty but low-maintenance dehumidifier for your home. Preventing the moisture and condensation accumulating again can keep explosive growth under control. Call SERVPRO of Stockton at (209) 477-3090 to find out how we can help you keep your home in pristine condition.
