SERVPRO Can Uncover Hidden Mold Damage in Largo Condos
The worst kind of mold damage in condo units to find happens when a homeowner believes they have a single issue to repair, and it turns into a mold remediation project. Mold is a problem that continues to get worse as long as it has food, moisture and an ideal temperature range to flourish.
SERVPRO responded to a home for a light water removal job. The technicians searching for the cause of the water determined it was a clogged condensation pan in the HVAC system in the attic. There was a concern because the areas around the HVAC held moisture and upon vacuuming the insulation to get to the wood, mold growth was hidden underneath. Immediate mold remediation efforts in the Largo condo began.
One of the best ways to stop mold is to take away the things it needs to survive, the first to go is moisture. The area was contained to stop the spread of spores in the home. Air movers and a dehumidifier quickly lowered the moisture and dried the surfaces within the contained space. Instead of using wet cleaning methods, SERVPRO technicians chose to use soda blasting which is a waterless, lightly abrasive method that cleans away mold and deodorizes at the same time. After the attic was thoroughly dried, vacuums with HEPA filters to capture mold spores were used to remove remaining dried debris. Then, techs wiped down the wood and affected surfaces with a powerful antifungal solution to inhibit the return of mold.
Mold leaves a very distinctive odor, and in the attic, it would have the potential to get passed through the home through the HVAC system. The use of both a ULV fogger and ventilation fan neutralized the unpleasant musty odor in the attic.
Mold damage in condo units should be removed as soon as you notice dampness or an odor. SERVPRO of Largo has certified technicians that are available 24/7 to help return your home to its preloss condition. Call (727) 586-0060 and talk to one of our experts now.
