What Types of Mold Damage Affect Homes in New Haven?
SERVPRO Mold Damage Technicians in New Haven Can Help Identify and Address Microbial Growth in Your Property
Mold is an umbrella term for fungi. Fungi are a type of microorganism that grows rapidly in the correct temperatures providing they have a supply of organic matter to digest and water. There are thousands of species within the mold family, which can affect almost any part of your home. Molds grow in floor dust on painted surfaces, infest fiberglass as well as gypsum board. One common mold species in a home is Cladosporium, which grows in carpets, walls, metal surfaces, and other building materials. Use professionals to help with:
- Mold remediation
- Mold identification
- Indoor air quality assessment.
Finding mold damage in your New Haven home is not uncommon. However, finding mold infestation could cause long-lasting structural damage or health effects. SERVPRO technicians can help to control and reduce mold infestations. We start by removing infested materials safely and in a contained environment to reduce the chances of spreading. We can then replace materials or perform restoration services for metals or other dense materials to return them to a preloss condition.
- Addressing potential sources of moisture such as malfunctioning HVAC systems, leaks, or insulation issues requires professional training and is essential to reducing microbial growth.
- Creating a clean air system with air scrubbers can help contain an outbreak and ensure indoor air quality remains sanitary.
- Dehumidification, like chemical biocides, can help slow the growth rate of molds but is usually less effective than removing infested materials and air scrubbers.
