Mold Damage Cleanup in Your Pinellas County Home
If You Find Mold Growing in Your Home, Call the Professionals at SERVPRO for Help
Mold can quickly become a problem in your Pinellas County home when there is an issue with moisture. A leak under your kitchen sink is one of the many culprits which can cause the growth of a mold colony. Plus, it does not take one long to start growing – just 24-48 hours after the leak begins.
Once you find mold and mold damage under your kitchen sink, you want to act quickly to have the problem fixed. Your Pinellas County kitchen continues to suffer from the mold growth until the leak is fixed, the moisture problem is taken care of, and the mold is cleaned up. At SERVPRO, our staff is professionally trained to handle these situations in an efficient and timely manner.
Our first step is to assess the situation and how much the mold has already spread. We have to then ensure that the mold spores do not spread to other areas of your home which are unaffected. It means making sure your heating and cooling systems in the home are off, and it could also mean containing the area around the sink with physical barriers to keep the mold in the affected area.
Depending on the extent of the damage and what materials the spores are on determines how long the actual cleanup and removal process takes. If the colony is thriving on non-porous material, we can likely clean and wipe it up quickly with the right cleaners. Materials which are porous, however, are challenging to clean mold from and may need to be removed and replaced. These include floorboards and drywall.
We lastly do any necessary cleaning and sanitizing to deodorize the area and to prevent more mold from growing again.
