Moisture problem not corrected and MOLD Flourished

Even when residents find evidence of mold, many of them ignore it or try to cover it up. Most people believe that a little mold is not a problem and can be covered up with paint. This belief is wrong and may affect the integrity of a home’s structure. Mold needs moisture to grow. When you remove the source of the moisture, the mold will not continue to flourish. There is no point in starting the mold remediation until the source of the moisture has been eliminated. After years of experience in the Pittsburgh area, SERVPRO knows what mold can do to a home. Each year, millions are spent to clean out mold growths and to restore or repair damage to structural and personal property. If the problem is identified and corrected in the early stages, the amount of damages can be minimized.

By the time homeowners first see or smell it, there is the possibility of contamination which has permanently compromised the structure. When this happens, our technicians quickly isolate the affected area. We seal off entry points with plastic sheeting and the air conditioning vents to prevent the spread of mold spores in the air. Removing affected property is simple, but time-consuming. Our technicians carefully remove affected building materials. To prevent a spread of the contamination, all affected debris is bagged, taped and removed from the structure. Stopping and removing mold from your home is a process that needs to begin at the first sign of a problem. Regardless of how far the mold may have grown, SERVPRO of South Park / West Mifflin is here with the experience and training needed to restore your home to its original condition.
