Mold Damage Remediation in Brentwood

If you are in need of mold remediation in Brentwood you need to learn more about mold to understand why professional cleanup is important. Mold can cause health effects and you don’t want to try and get rid of it on your own. Mold can grow throughout a property in as little as 48 to 72 hours, so it is important to get help fast before the situation gets worse.

Microscopic mold spores are nearly everywhere, indoors and outdoors. It is impossible to remove all of them. Mold spores can grow quickly into colonies when they are exposed to water.

 Before you can get rid of mold you have to get rid of the source of water that is feeding the colony. This may mean repairing a leak. You may need to figure out a way to reduce humidity in an area to prevent more mold growth. Indoor humidity should be kept lower than 45 percent.

To contain mold to one area for cleanup and removal the service professional will turn off any fans or HVAC systems so the spores do not spread. The professionals will use powerful air scrubbers with HEPA filters to prevent the spread of mold during the cleanup process.

It may be necessary to remove certain materials if they are contaminated with mold. This may mean you have to get rid of your carpet. It may also mean that you need a section of drywall replaced. It depends on how bad the mold colony is.
