Mold Damage in Stored Clothing Can Indicate Bigger Problems in Fitchburg Homes

Mold on a Wall in Fitchburg Needs Remediation and Moisture Control--Call SERVPRO

Remediation and Humidity Control Get Your Fitchburg Property Back in Great Shape

Pulling items out of storage or the back of a closet can sometimes reveal damaged items. When any mold is present on fabrics and clothing, a larger problem is likely to exist in that area of your home. Other spaces may also have problems with fungal infestations, such as areas of the already discovered locations.

Fitchburg is full of beautiful homes, but mold damage is not choosy about which home it attacks. Dust is full of mold spores and other microbes, and they often easily carried into your home from the outside. Once there, they can quickly settle on a surface, and if conditions are correct, they can begin to grow.
Microbes such as mold spores and mildew only need a few basic items to grow and engage in its life cycle. The main component that we can control is moisture. A leak, a tiny drip, or even increased humidity from a poorly installed bathroom vent can provide more than enough moisture to allow fungal growth to happen.
We find these areas rich in moisture with the use of a hygrometer, showing us where increased moisture exists. Not only does this often reveal infested areas, but it often helps us discover the source of the moisture itself. When this is the case, we eliminate any future moisture from accumulating thereby reducing the possibilities of future mold infestations.
Whenever SERVPRO answers a call for mold damage, we know that remediation is only part of the answer. Prevention of future outbreaks of microbial growth is crucial to protecting your home. Even though mold is ever-present, with the correct measures, its movement can be controlled, and it can be a non-factor in your daily activities.
Expert applied microbial remediation technicians like those at SERVPRO are perfect for all your needs. We train our employees according to the standards developed by the IICRC so we can assure you that all traces of fungal activity ceases, and future activity effectively prevented. In addition to removing all known traces of infested materials in a safe manner that reduces the risk of contaminating microbe-free areas of your home, the installation of easily-maintained dehumidifiers can ensure correctness of humidity levels. Sans humidity, these tiny organisms can no longer proliferate into large mold patches.
We at SERVPRO of Fitchburg-Leominster understand that mold damage can be a serious threat to your home and the act of finding it in your home can cause you extreme stress. Call us at (978) 537-1500, so we can help you with remediation, from start to finish, and get your home back to how it should be once again.
