SERVPRO Technicians Arrive with Detection Tools to Find Hidden Mold in Your Home

Circulating air in your house can be a very incredible convenience. For anyone that has lived in the times where you did not have air conditioning or central heating for your South Orlando home, you can appreciate the convenience even more. Even with the advancements in how these appliances run and operate when you are using them to their fullest abilities, there're some precautions and potential risks that you are taking that you might not know.

You likely didn't know that homes have dealt with mold damage in South Orlando tied explicitly to the operation of circulating air appliances like furnaces or air conditioners. You don't see this mold damage; however, your nose can pick up the scent of must typical of a growing colony. The problem is rooted in two sections. Firstly, not having your duct system adequately maintained and cleaned over years of use. Secondly, the result of condensation on the metal combined with organic material in the ducts' network. This allows mold colonies to grow.

Being common knowledge now, mold can cause health effects to those exposed to it. It indeed is not something you want to allow to circulate throughout your home freely. Our SERVPRO professionals become certified in mold remediation to the high standards of the IICRC. Trained in all types of mold and fungal growth, SERVPRO can provide the best (and safest) means of removal.

The first step is to stop the air circulation and work quickly to locate the colonies that grow within the duct system. Once located, our SERVPRO technicians find the best way to reach this affected area, whether through the removal of sections to gain access or through concentrated vacuuming. Since your nose found the problem in the first place, this odor needs removal. Typically, a fogger would be used for this process. This dense chemical compound overtakes and neutralizes the musty smell, leaving no scent behind at all.

Mold damage is something that you should take care of as soon as you encounter it. Our certified and experienced professionals at SERVPRO of South Orlando are available to help whenever you need us. All you have to do is give us a call anytime at 407) 985-3200.
