Mold Remedaition

7/25/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is spread through the air. Basement mold can affect the rest of the house if not remediated in a timely fashion.

Mold is everywhere and it is a common problem in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Older homes, some with unfinished basements, some with foundation problems which allow an intrusion of water into them are not uncommon. All of these factors can cause mold to grow and SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge stays busy remediating these basements.

Basements are the most common place for mold to grow simply because they are usually damp, dark and have a lack of airflow.  Since the spores are spread through the air, it is not uncommon for the spores to travel to other parts of the home. HVAC ducts are one conduit in which they travel.

To keep mold from infesting the rest of the home immediate attention to the basement should occur. SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge has the experienced remediation technicians to rid the home of potential harmful mold growth.

As a homeowner there are several steps you can take to reduce the chances for mold to grow. The first and most important thing is to keep the basement dry. if water is an issue, correct it. Always use a dehumidifier and keep the humidity lower than 55%. Make sure there is air flow either with a open window or activity in the basement.

If you see signs of mold growth, call a professional remediation company like SERVPRO of Carbondale/Clarks Summit/Old Forge.
