Mold Damage Control in Santa Rosa Beach When Trying to Sell Your Home
Remediate Mold Damage Before Placing Your Home on the Market
Like most areas near a body of water, Santa Rosa Beach is uniquely susceptible to mold problems. In addition to compromising the perception of your property, the presence of mold could incite fear of harmful health effects on a potential buyer. It could scare away interested buyers and eventually incline you to settle for a significantly lower value. Unbeknown to many, most mold growth issues are not nearly as difficult to correct as originally perceived.
If you are unsure of the extent of mold damage in your Santa Rosa Beach property, SERVPRO can deploy highly experienced technicians to test and advise on the best way forward. We have advanced tools and equipment for measuring and removing mold growth completely, leaving your house safe to inhabit. All our efforts are in line with IICRC recommendations to ensure a clean remediation process.
Mold typically thrives in damp spaces such as basements and under sinks, but it is also often overlooked in crawlspaces and attics. Before the home inspector arrives, SERVPRO can inspect these areas for mold damage and apply a thorough mold remediation procedure. If there is mold growth in the attic, chances are there are other issues as well - ranging from improper ventilation to a leaky roof. Our technicians can help check and eliminate any issues in dark, damp areas before you put your property on the market. The time and effort you put towards restoring your home can influence a higher asking price.
It is important to address and correct the water problem contributing to mold growth and mold damage in the house. Simply removing or painting over the mold is inadequate because the fungi are bound to return. We can replace structural materials (such as drywall) that have signs of water damage to make the home more habitable. We may also have to replace carpet that has been wet for more than 24 hours, as prolonged contact with water often damages it beyond repair.
Ignoring mold damage can reduce the property value of your home by a staggering 10 percent. This figure can increase in the presence of other conditions. If you are looking to sell your house, SERVPRO can come in and check every inch for water problems, repairing them one by one.
