Laundry Day Mold Discovery In Daytona Beach

Moisture Leads to Need for Mold Remediation by SERVPRO in Your Daytona Beach Home

Mold Discovered? Call in the Remediation Experts--SERVPRO

The requirements mold spores have for growth are straightforward and available in many areas of your home. Moisture, oxygen, and a surface coated with just a bit of nourishment are all that is needed. SERVPRO mold remediation specialists help with everything from finding the water source and clearing the mold away safely to offering hints on how to avoid another outbreak.

You believe one of the cleanest areas of your home is the laundry room with its high-efficiency washer and dryer, and shelves full of detergents, stain removers and bleach. However, you notice a sour, earthy smell and some discolored areas near the dryer vent. Unexpected or not, mold damage is a reality in your Daytona Beach home. We can help remove the mold and determine why this area of your home is such a microbial incubator.
 
SERVPRO follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s protocols for mold remediation in schools and commercial buildings in any interior space. First, the team contains the area for the safety of you and your family. Plastic sheeting is hung, and any nearby vents of your HVAC system must be covered. If the infestation is significant, we bring in a negative pressure air scrubber to be certain no particles of the mold escape into the air during the remediation. We remove and bag the mold and any surface it infiltrates, preparing to dispose of it properly outside of the home.
 
The team then applies antimicrobials to the affected areas and vacuums up lint and other debris with our HEPA filter equipment. SERVPRO experts inspect the area to be sure all mold is gone and moisture and nourishment sources eliminated. Common places for mold growth in a laundry room include the gasket around a front loading washer, the lint trap and vent of the dryer, and even the piles of clothes and linens waiting for their turn. Wiping down the gasket, limiting the time dirty laundry wait, and cleaning the dryer vents and lint screens help.
 
The hot and humid conditions in Florida require extra vigilance. It is crucial to keep the humidity within all areas of your home between 30 and 50 percent. Running your AC should do this, but many households add a dehumidifier to achieve the proper level. Consider having your air conditioner checked and cleaned as a final safeguard.
