Useful Tips for Dealing with Hidden Mold Damage in Jacksonville

Concealed areas such as wall cavities or crawl spaces tend to retain higher humidity levels. Low natural light, dust and other debris are also typical in such sections making them perfect places for mold proliferation because apart from moisture, mold also requires a food source. Since these are among parts rarely inspected, the colonies have enough time to spread before the Jacksonville homeowner notices. We offer professional remediation services that can help deal with such widespread mold colonies. 

If you suspect there is mold damage in your Jacksonville property probably because of musty smell or other mild signs, it is essential to take immediate steps to deal with the situation. A thorough inspection of all the suspected areas can help identify where the mold colonies are. Our SERVPRO technicians can help inspect your property to determine problem areas. 

Proper mold inspection requires care. Instead of opening up the entire wall, it is better to take the gradual approach. In this case, only open a small wall section at a time for inspection. This approach reduces the amount of damage done to the structure. Checking the extent of the infestation is also essential. Where there are heavily infested porous materials, the best option is to throw them out because it is not possible to eliminate the hyphae that reach deep into the affected material. 

Identifying all possible moisture sources in an affected building is essential for long-term results. Sometimes the problem could be a result of condensation due to differences in temperature between the air in the cavity and the surrounding surfaces. This outcome is likely when walls have impermeable coverings such as vinyl wallpaper. However, in most cases, the moisture originates from leakage in plumbing systems or issues in the roof. Our SERVPRO technicians evaluate all possibilities to identify the moisture source. In some cases, we even use thermal cameras to trace back the origin of the issue. 

Hidden mold colonies should not lead to long-term problems. Call SERVPRO of Jacksonville South to help. You can reach us at (904) 762-8066 any time.
