Naples Mold Damage

Once mold spores have enough moisture to expand, they grow quickly, feeding on the surrounding building material.

Mold Damage in Naples

Hurricane and tropical storm season are over once again. We were spared the worst of it for the most part, and Naples Pier is as sturdy as it when it was built over a century ago. Even with the storm threat over, homeowners should still be concerned about possible aftereffects.

Mold damage in Naples can start with just a small amount of moisture and the right surroundings. Even though an area flooded with storm water is now dry, there is the possibility of remaining moisture behind drywall or otherwise hidden in your home. SERVPRO is ready with the equipment and experience to find it and remove it.

Once mold spores have enough moisture to expand, they grow quickly, feeding on the surrounding building material. Often, this goes unnoticed until the infestation has spread to a common area such as a bathroom or hallway or someone smells that distinctive musty odor. If you see or suspect mold damage, call us for a free, initial inspection.

If our inspectors discover mold, we can determine the source and just how far it has spread. Once the affected areas have been determined, our restoration team develops a plan utilizing our extensive inventory of equipment and anti-fungal and anti-microbial cleaning agents available to thoroughly clean and remove the mold.

If the source is found to be behind a wall, we can drill several holes in that area and use special fans to force air into it to dry it out. If this is not successful, that section of drywall may need to be removed and replaced. Moisture saturated drywall is very delicate and can crumble simply by picking it up. Once the section is removed, the affected area can be quickly dried and then the now inactive spores can be vacuumed out.
