Mold Damage can Affect Homes in Santa Rosa Beach Both Inside and Outside
Rely on SERVPRO for Removal of Mold Growth in Your Santa Rosa Property
Mold can grow in almost any place in a home, especially when current conditions meet the requirements of mold. There are very few items inside the typical home that can withstand the damage mold dishes out during its life cycle.
Residents in this Gulf Coast region have the benefit of a healthy environment due to the proximity to the water and ocean breezes, but this can never eliminate the risk of mold damage in Santa Rosa Beach entirely. Mold can damage a home in so many different ways, and ruin many of your personal belongings, too, as it grows.
From the rafters of your roof to the bottom of crawl spaces in exterior and all the nooks and crannies in between, your home can provide not just the nourishment mold needs but also the hiding places that keep mold flourishing. Out-of-sight should never mean out-of-mind when it comes to mold. Most species that plaque homes prefer a lack of sunlight.
When mold is located outside your home, this should still be dealt with just as aggressively as if it were located indoors. When the fungi are growing on the exterior parts of your home or inside crawl spaces and storage areas, they can be circulated to the interior, and also, as it grows outdoors, mold can cause damage to those same exterior structures.
Mold that is growing on the underside of a porch roof or around windowsills should be removed, and the area inspected. If any damage is found, the materials can easily be replaced. Treating the area with a mold-inhibitor can help to prevent mold from returning.
Besides cleaning and treating areas that have mold growth and removing materials that have been harshly damaged by mold and are now in a non-salvageable condition, we also use equipment that significantly reduces the amount of mold in the air. Air scrubbers can remove a significant number of mold spores, and this keeps them from starting new colonies. However, 'mold elimination' is never possible for two reasons. First, some mold particles always escape even the best efforts, and secondly, mold or spores exist outside your home and are very easily transported inside where you live.
Knowing that mold can be transported into your home should give you good reason to have outside mold cleaned up and removed.
