Outbuildings and Mold Remediation

Johns Creek homeowners are busy, and during the warmer months, maintenance tasks tend to pile up. Essential projects often slip through the cracks, leading to unforeseen, sometimes disastrous consequences. Picture this: a garage or outbuilding with unnoticed roof or plumbing leaks. These remote, unmonitored spaces become fertile ground for a hidden, substantial, and costly mold infestation. Given just 24 to 48 hours, spores can germinate, multiply, and start to wreak havoc on your structures.

Structural Destruction Caused by Unrestrained Mold

The media loves to spotlight the health effects of mold, but they often miss the catastrophic structural damage it can cause. While some suffer from mold-related irritants and allergens, those same spores can morph into ravenous colonies, devouring building materials with a vengeance. Without prompt remediation, a Johns Creek fungal infestation can explode, devastating the supports and structure of buildings. These colonies latch onto and consume porous organic structures such as:

  • Drywall

  • Plaster

  • Ceiling tiles

  • Insulation

  • Carpeting

  • Wood framing, joists, rafters, roof eaves, decking, floors, cabinets, trim, and other cellulose-based materials

Outbuildings Are Particularly Vulnerable to Mold

Mold’s relentless destruction knows no bounds. Regularly frequented living spaces often receive prompt, professional intervention, halting the chances of damage. But those uninhabited outbuildings? They’re a different story. Rarely visited and never closely inspected, these spaces hide rapidly spreading mold fueled by unnoticed moisture and ignored water damage. The same organic building materials found in your main home are present in these ancillary structures. Mold consumes cellulose without regard to location. Take the time to ensure microbes aren’t munching on your properties. If they are, partner with AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford to contain, remove, and inhibit future mold damage.

Reconstruction and Replacement Is Very Expensive

Repairing or replacing a severely mold-damaged outbuilding can cost tens of thousands of dollars. Imagine the gut-wrenching possibility that insurance coverage might be delayed or outright denied if the damage is due to a failure to inspect, find, and remediate conditions conducive to microbial growth. To avoid financial ruin, assess the condition of your outbuildings now.

Think also about the valuables stored in buildings like garages, pole barns, sheds, saunas, and workshops. The disruption and expenses soar as mold damage to contents accelerates. Within 24 to 48 hours, mold colonies can begin spreading. Failing to inspect outbuildings weekly or more frequently for water damage and arranging for necessary mitigation and remediation is a recipe for disaster.
