Mold Damage Control in Naples Properties
How Can A Naples Homeowner Control Mold Damage?
If the weather has been significantly humid for a few days, molds may start developing inside the house. Surfaces such as benches and walls are especially susceptible to mold during heavy rainfalls. Humidity can also increase when moisture inside the house evaporates into the air. The problem can become worse when the structure has poor ventilation. One of the contributing factors of indoor humidity issues is drying clothes indoors. The HVAC system in the house can also lead to humidity problems when heating or cooling air within the structure.

Mold thrives in humid conditions and prefers when the relative humidity is above 70%. Therefore, removing water vapor from the air is an important part of the mold damage control. We do this using dehumidifiers, which pull in moist, humid air and then replace it with dry, warm air. The dry air absorbs moisture from wet items like a sponge. SERVPRO uses two types of dehumidifiers: desiccant dehumidifiers (which rely on chemicals known as desiccants to quickly absorb moisture from the air) and refrigerant dehumidifiers (which use the same working principle as air conditioners).
Once the mold is annihilated, deodorization is necessary to neutralize the pungent smell left behind by the fungus. Ultra Low Volume Foggers can atomize liquid deodorizing agents and produce a fine mist that penetrates areas with odor-causing residues. We also use the device to inject fungicides and disinfectants into hard-to-reach areas such as wall cavities.
Thermal foggers are also useful in mold damage deodorization. They discharge solvent-based products in large, dense fogs ideal for confined spaces. The fog is made up of small particles that bond with and neutralize odor-causing agents.
