Mold Damage is Found
At SERVPRO of Antioch we receive many calls regarding mold being found in homes. Its always recommended to hire an IEP (Indoor Environmental Professional) or a Hygienist to perform an air quality test to determine which species of microbial growth we are dealing with. When mold is found it is never an emergency, it can take up to 72 hours before the beginning stages of mold are discovered.
When mold is discovered it can be a very scary experience, but don’t be scared because we are here to help. Mold can be difficult to detect at times and by the time its found significant damages may have already resulted in the home. Mold is usually a result of a water intrusion that wasn’t mitigated properly. When your indoor relative humidity reaches 60% or higher that’s an ideal environment for growing mold. Just remember when mold damage is found in your home there’s a few things you should avoid from doing; cleaning off by spraying or wiping and placing any kind of fan directly on the affected area. Instead refrain from disturbing and give us a call at 925-706-0106 so we can help.
