Port St. Lucie Mold Damage Techs from SERVPRO Remediate Damage Caused by Microbes

While all structures contain some amount of microbes, their growth accelerates significantly in the presence of moisture and porous organic materials like wood, sheetrock, and wool or cotton insulation. When mold damage has reached the surface of a floor, wall, or ceiling, the chances are that Port St. Lucie homeowners have more that requires remediation behind those materials.

SERVPRO mold damage cleanup for Port St. Lucie homes protects home occupants during DIY cleanup while restoring structural materials and contents where possible. Restoration professionals can also safely dispose of unsalvageable materials to prevent secondary damages from spreading spores.

How Mold Damage Eats Away at Structural Materials

Microbes proliferate by eating digestible materials in an environment with suitable amounts of water, food, warmth, and oxygen for sustainability. For ease of consumption, carbon-based materials are broken down with digestive enzymes. Spores can also exist on synthetic materials broken down by digestive enzymes, such as paint, glue, or fibers.

To keep mold damage at bay, homeowners can:

  • Inspect their property for signs of water damage. Spores can grow in as little as 24 to 48 hours after a leak or flood
  • Keep spaces dry and cool. Microbes grow incredibly quickly in humid areas between 77 and 68 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Contact certified mold mitigation professionals. Microbial remediation from an accredited team keeps home occupants safe and prevents the unintentional spread of spores throughout the property
