Excess Moisture Can Lead to Mold Growth

7/9/2020 (Permalink)

When excess moisture is present within a structure, chances are good that in a relatively short period of time mildew and mold growth can, and probably will, occur. Of course, other conditions do play a factor in the equation as well, including a food source like paint, wood and other organic materials.

Given an organic food source, mold can begin to visibly grow in as little as 24-48 hours. For this reason, it is very important to react to moisture problems and water damages quickly and properly to help prevent a bad situation from becoming worse.

Offering 24-hour emergency service, SERVPRO of Kaufman County/Cedar Creek professionals can respond to a water damaged structure within four hours under normal circumstances. Prompt arrival enables SERVPRO of Kaufman County/Cedar Creek professionals to gather the necessary information needed by the property owner or the insurer, and to begin emergency mitigation services. This helps limit secondary damage to the structure and contents.

A routine of measuring and recording moisture readings will be instituted, allowing SERVPRO of Kaufman County/Cedar Creek professionals to monitor, adjust as needed, and maximize the efficiency of the dry down process. Utilizing specialized equipment, your SERVPRO of Kaufman County/Cedar Creek professionals will help make sure that the moisture is not hiding behind walls or under floor coverings- two areas that commonly offer opportunities for mold growth as the moisture goes undetected by the property owner.

Once the structure is dry, SERVPRO Of Kaufman County/Cedar Creek professionals can provide complete mold remediation services if necessary, which may be the case especially when a water damage has gone unnoticed by the property owner for a lengthy period of time.

Upon project completion, the property owner and/or the insurer will be presented with a complete job file, including signed work authorization and satisfaction forms, digital photographs, monitoring reports, a written project scope, and job estimates.
