Persistent Moisture Can Lead to Mold Growth in Your Ormond Beach Residence

Finding mold behind a cabinet or in a corner of your home can be quite disconcerting. Contact SERVPRO for remediation services.

SERVPRO Technicians are Professional in Their Approach of Remediating Mold Damage in Your Home

Flooding situations are a nearly constant threat to the residents of Ormond Beach, even with the steep precautions taken to prevent these disastrous waters from entering homes and properties. Worse still, many homeowners choose cheap and unlicensed assistance to help them clean up the mess after it happens, potentially making matters worse for themselves.

While there are plenty of people who would seek to take advantage of a widespread flood throughout the community, the risk of a scam is smaller scale in what could potentially happen to your home without choosing licensed and accredited professionals to do the work. Often flood damages can quickly turn into mold damages in your Ormond Beach residence due to a lack of adequate restoration work.

It should get stated that scams do exist for communities when they fall victim to flooding or other natural disasters. Con artists seek to prey on those desperate to restore their home. A red flag for this kind of scam would be requesting all or most of the money estimated for the restoration upfront instead of at the completion of the job. SERVPRO, for example, does not ask for the restoration costs upfront from our clients.

Even when they are legitimate enough to do the work, many lack the tools and experience to contend with these damages, allowing for moisture and dampness to persist in areas that they did not or could not check. This persistent moisture can allow mold spores to colonize in as little as three days, which erodes construction materials and poses a continual health risk for the occupants of the house exposed to the colony or its spores. This added development would require professional experience as well, such as our SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians.

Flooding can be a grave situation for your household that you want to restore as quickly as possible. When you add in the possibility of mold or microbial growth from a lack of adequate quality restoration work, you see the importance of choosing professionals to do the job. Give our SERVPRO of North Daytona Beach / Ormond Beach team of technicians a chance to show you the quality and efficiency of our restoration work. Give us a call anytime at (386) 677-9993.
