How Mold Damage Can Spread Throughout Your Miramar Beach Residence

Mold Spotting in Your Miramar Beach Condo? Contact SERVPRO for Mold Remediation

For Miramar Beach Homes and Condos, SERVPRO Provides Professional and Safe Mold Remediation

Moisture ridden areas of your Miramar Beach home can attract an unpleasant guest into your home in the form of fungal growth. As this organism grows and thrives, it can spread to new areas of your house and seat into new surfaces. Within a brief period of the initial colonization, your home can have widespread mold growth that requires immediate action from professional remediation technicians.

Mold damage is common to Miramar Beach homes, and the severe weather systems and often damp conditions throughout the hurricane season can only exasperate this possibility. While you work to prevent this from occurring in your home, many fail to see the warning signs when they happen, and only notice the mold growth when it is out of control and in desperate need of professional intervention. Understanding how this organism lives and spreads can help you to understand the importance of reaching out to our certified mold remediation specialists at SERVPRO immediately.

From the moment that mold spores encounter conditions which allow them to develop and thrive in your home, less than 72 hours remain before a colony can form. This process begins with some light spotting on surfaces like drywall, as the spores take footing into this material to begin to grow and spread. As the colony eats through and degrades this material, it has to continue to spread throughout new areas of this surface, and even adjacent walls to continue feeding. The not visible on the surface hyphae spread like roots infesting and consuming more organic material.

Air circulation systems also play a significant role in how mold damage can spread throughout your home. Areas that otherwise might not have met the conditions for growth get exposed to active spores traveling through the ducts and settling in new areas. This fact is part of the reason why air conditioning gets shut off when remediation work from our SERVPRO technicians begins. We can inspect the HVAC system and clean and disinfect against spores, pet dander, bacteria and virus microorganisms and other allergens.

Though you may not notice the conducive conditions for mold proliferation, the right choice is to reach out to our SERVPRO of N. Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes & Washington Counties remediation technicians.  We can help limit the spread of these organisms and work efficiently to remove the infestations from your home.
