Lurking Mold Damage Gets Exposed During Renovation

Mold Damage Under Tile In a Bathroom

Professionals Know How To Get Rid of Mold Safely

Mold damage can occur beneath the surfaces in many areas. The prevalent real estate flipping market among local communities is likely to discover occasional mold problems during renovations. The most aesthetically pleasing homes may look perfect on the exterior but have a hidden or unexpected mold damage beneath the surface. Mold damage left undetected can create a multitude of extensive problems and expenses.

Sometimes homeowners or contractors may not realize that mold is present in their homes until they begin a home renovation project or demolition. During a renovation project, it is not uncommon to cut into a piece of drywall or expose pipes behind walls. If there is evidence of water leaking or wet spots along the removed drywall or visible water coming off of the pipes, it is reasonable to suspect that there may be a Beverly Hills mold damage problem. Other times mold is evident as soon as the demolition begins.
 
Demolitions are an effective method of visualizing all the plumbing and building structures in the home. Mold problems may exist behind the surface and may not be discovered until a renovation project is underway. When SERVPRO's team of trained mold damage specialists identify the mold problem, we launch our rapid responders to the site to begin an assessment. We set up a containment area to block off the rest of the property from the area of mold damage. Once our team of experts begins removing the affected areas of mold damage, we will operate air ventilation systems to filter the air and improve the indoor air quality.

The goal is to remove the mold safely and effectively while filtering out the mold spores that are circulating in the air. Your safety and the air quality in the property are our number one priority. Once the mold damage has been removed, your SERVPRO team will sanitize the area with anti-microbial agents to prevent a regrowth of mold. Not only is detecting mold a significant step to providing a safe living environment, taking steps to prevent a new outbreak of mold is necessary. Mold damage removal is only an effective solution when the source of the moisture problem is identified. For this reason, the source of the problem must be fixed to prevent future outbreaks of the mold problem.

If you are in the midst of a renovation and identify water leaks or mold damage, contact SERVPRO at (310) 390-7540 to get an expert opinion. We will customize a solution for your specific needs.
