Mold Damage Help with SERVPRO Gets Results for Brandon Residents

There are many popular myths about black mold, mildew, and bacterial growth. Whether you suspect mold development in your home or business, how you approach it will significantly impact your results. Rather than trying DIY and making it worse, you can get the help you need and fast with the team at SERVPRO. We use research-based mold cleanup methods and industrial-grade products to ensure your interior is Certified: SERVPRO Cleaned when we get done. 

Mold damage in Brandon is something that you may not even be able to see with the naked eye. If you start to suspect there may be a moisture problem or mold colonization, time is of the essence so that the issue does not worsen. 

Mold Spores are All Around Us, and in the Air

Many people fail to realize that microscopic mold spores of all kinds are around us each day, indoors and outdoors. While you can live in harmony with mold and be completely safe, excessive moisture is the enemy. With the correct moisture levels and organic materials for food, mold colonization accelerates in as little as 24 to 48 hours.  

Some of the most prevalent areas for mold to reproduce include:

  • Areas where water overflows from bathtubs, showers, sinks, hot tubs, aquariums, etc.
  • Spots where there might be unnoticed or slow leaks, including slight drips from bathroom or kitchen pipes. 
  • Condensation that develops around windows, exterior walls, or AC units. You may even have condensation that builds in your laundry room and improperly vented kitchens or bathrooms.
