Project Manager of Jacksonville South Explains the Importance of Mold Remediation

As you can learn from the video above, a lot of homeowners and business owners are not fully aware of the risks of mold and microbial growths at their property following water damage and moisture ridden areas. While Chris Ryan, a project manager for SERVPRO of Jacksonville South discusses, there are some ways that you can tell if such an occurrence is happening around you.

One of the ways that you can determine a microbial growth is happening in your home or business is by the distinct smell that emits from the growth itself. It often gets described as a harsh, musty odor that is unmistakable. If you encounter a scent like this inside of your home or building, you should contact the appropriate professionals to help you determine what you are dealing with as soon as you can.

Another indicator of growth could be staining on surfaces and drywall. This staining might not present itself as widespread and blatant, which leads to the necessity of regularly inspecting areas of your home that might have had water damage due to severe weather or persistent dampness.

Our SERVPRO team can break this process into several parts beginning with an air quality test. This procedure helps to determine both the need for professional restoration and an understanding of the appropriate personal protective equipment necessary for remediation.

Part of this process is helping to remove the microbial growth from your home and limiting the exposure of your family to this mold at the same time. Additionally, our SERVPRO team works to determine the source of the moisture and dampness allowing the problem to occur in the first place, whether that came from a recent weather event or an improperly cleaned and restored water damage situation that occurred recently.

When it comes to remediating mold damage that occurs in your home, you can always trust in the experience and expertise in every antimicrobial remediation technician employed with SERVPRO of Jacksonville South. You can reach our response team anytime by calling (904) 762-8066.
