Practical Help from Mold Remediation Professionals 

When considering the disruption, expense, and destruction caused by mold damage, wise homeowners know that the best course of action is to prevent mold growth in the first place. Mold spores are present in every residence and cause no trouble when dry. However, when they encounter moisture, germination can occur within 24 to 48 hours, exposing properties to the risk of significant destruction as the growing mold consumes and weakens building materials. Neglected or incompletely resolved water damage leads to mold growth in nearly all cases--you can only remediate mold if you eliminate the moisture that feeds it. 

Avoid Mold with Immediate Water Cleanup

Water damage culprits can be things as small as long-term seepage due to tiny pipe cracks or connection leaks or as catastrophic as post-storm flooding. Any source of water can fuel substantial microbial infestations inside a house. Spores that absorb even tiny quantities of moisture can swiftly proliferate into destructive colonies that spread across structural surfaces and invade fixtures, furniture, and other contents within your home. Terming water damage as "minor" is meaningless if spores have time to soak and grow. Even excessive humidity creates the conditions that support runaway mold growth. Stop this destructive fungal cycle in its tracks before mold gets a chance to grow – reach out for the professional assistance of a water damage mitigation and remediation leader like AdvantaClean:

  • NORMI and IICRC-trained and certified technicians inspect for water damage, looking for signs like pooling, peeling paint, crumbling drywall or plaster, and swelling of hardwood floors, cabinets, baseboards, and building framing.
  • Moisture and humidity detection and metering tools help identify the wet spaces and materials.
  • Commercial-grade pumps and extractors remove standing fluids rapidly. 
  • Expertly positioned air movers and heaters accelerate the evaporation of absorbed moisture, which is then captured, contained, and eventually disposed of outside the house by high-efficiency dehumidifiers.  

Moisture Management Equals Mold Damage Inhibition

Research-based mold remediation standards developed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stress that managing moisture is the only way to prevent microbial overgrowth. A mold "removal" company that fails to find and fix water and moisture incursion will not deliver sustainable mold remediation. That’s why AdvantaClean's expertise in both mold remediation and water damage resolution is so valuable.

Realistic Mold Damage Follow-up

The reality is that mold damage can hide in building cavities or under wall or floor coverings. AdvantaClean relies on a final mold inspection before considering remediation complete. Water and mold remediation project managers also encourage customers to call if they suspect mold did find an opening and might be growing. For example, household fungal infestations announce themselves with an unpleasantly musty odor-- if noticed, reach out as soon as possible for a reinspection. Relative humidity levels should be 50 percent or lower--dehumidifiers and diligent use of exhaust fans in moist environments like bathrooms and kitchens can maintain the desired percentage.
