What to Avoid When Dealing With Mold Damage in Your Santa Ana Home
Santa Ana Homes are Not Immune From Mold Damage Even in Our Dry Climate
It is well-known that mold requires moisture to grow, making the generally dry climate of Santa Ana seem like protection from microbial outbreaks. The interior of any home hosts numerous water sources that can leak or overflow, however, opening your home to the risk of mold damage. If you notice a musty smell or see visual evidence that mold is a problem in your home, we offer expert remediation services.
The small amount of moisture necessary to support mold damage inside your Santa Ana home can be surprising. A crack in the seal of your sink drainer or a family member’s persistent habit of failing to keep the shower curtain inside the tub can deposit enough water to start a domino effect of mold colony growth. Whatever the cause, we are ready to craft a plan to eliminate the water source and abate the mold problem.
SERVPRO mold remediation crews frequently act as microbial growth detectives. Because plumbing is often hidden behind walls and under cabinets, and modern homes feature many bathrooms, food prep areas, and water using appliances, the beginnings of mold damage can go undetected by the homeowner. Even the high humidity of a kitchen or bath can provide enough moisture for some molds to take hold if exhaust fans are not present or used. We are familiar with the many places mold can thrive and are adept at containing and removing the infestation no matter how hidden.
Our remediation crew chief evaluates the mold damage carefully before determining the areas to treat. SERVPRO follows the EPA protocols to prevent the spread of moldy residues during remediation, using physical barriers and considering the use of negative pressure air filtering equipment during the project. Our team uses personal protective equipment to ensure we do not track moldy materials into other areas of your home. We remove mold in the containment space employing a variety of scraping, scrubbing, and abrasive techniques that restore both porous and non-porous surfaces safely back preloss condition. A final application of EPA registered antimicrobial product helps prevent regrowth of mold.
