Is Mold Growing Under Your Naples Kitchen Sink?
What to Do When Your Plumber Finds Mold Damage Under Your Sink in Your Naples Home
Calling a plumber in Naples to remove a clog or fix your kitchen sink's garbage disposal is tedious enough, but when other problems become apparent, it can seem only to get worse. When it is just a drip or loosened joint, the plumber can quickly fix them and get things back in working order quickly.
When the plumber finds your Naples home has mold damage under the sink, however, this falls outside of any plumber's expertise. Instead, you need professional mold damage remediators like our SERVPRO Franchise professionals. We hold IICRC certificates in Applied Microbial Remediation (AMRT), and our specialists know the most effective methods to restore your home.
We inspect to find the areas affected with microbial infestations, and then remove the excess mold and their spores. To do this, we use infrared imaging technology that shows where any lost water may have been feeding microbial colonies, which is possible because mildew, mold, and other microscopic organisms cannot live without moisture levels above normal humidity. These tiny organisms eat away at cellulose-based materials inside your home and destroy whatever they rest on quickly.
We cut these areas away and remove them so we can bring in new materials to restore the area. The back of the kitchen cabinet might contain mold activity and its absence after we remove it cleans the area immensely. Replacing it is an easy task.
We can restore some materials, however, by abrading their surfaces with either baking soda or dry ice pellet which is extremely helpful when surfaces affected include the inside portion of cabinet doors. Instead of replacing them, we can clean them, or if more deeply embedded with mold, we can blast them slightly and remove invasive microbes. Repainting or other finishes complete the restoration.
We also treat surfaces with antimicrobial inhibitors that keep mold from regrowing. Kitchens, as well as bathrooms, are both notorious for having high levels of humidity. Prevention is much less expensive than remediation, and we want to help our customers save as much as possible, both financially and in the area of their belongings.
