A Damp Environment Can Cause Mold Damage in Your Wilmington Garage  

Mold damage can be difficult for the average person to identify, and even harder for them to deal with. Mold spores are omnipresent and impossible to be rid of altogether. Usually, they are not a problem or a risk to your health while in this state. However, the problem occurs when thousands of spores activate from excess moisture and begin to feed off of organic materials within your home. In the case of your unfinished garage, the mold attached itself to the drywall that had become damper than it should be from seasonal weather. Once the mold spores had access to that moisture, they were able to develop into a mold colony causing damage to the structure of your home.

 
Upon finding mold damage or the evidence of mold in your Wilmington residence, it is wise to reach out for professional help. Contacting a cleanup and damage restoration company can ensure that the problem is dealt with thoroughly and professionally. Leaving mold colonies in your house to sit is never wise, as fungi can cause health effects in the individuals living there.
 
When you contact SERVPRO, we always make it a top priority to arrive at your property as swiftly as possible. We understand how stressful these situations can be and know that the sooner remediation begins, the sooner it can end. Our IICRC-certified techs can investigate the mold damage and create a remediation strategy.
 
Before we begin removing mold, we can set up an air scrubber with a HEPA filter to catch mold spores and particles as they become dislodged from the drywall. From there, we can use plastic sheeting to set up a barrier, so the damage cannot spread as we remove it. To begin the remediation, we can start by soda blasting the surface mold to remove it gently. From there, SERVPRO can spray disinfectants and begin to clean the drywall, removing the colonies thoroughly.
 
If our SERVPRO techs feel that the colony penetrated the drywall to deeply, we can make cuts and remove the sections that are too contaminated. To handle the musty odor that mold can leave behind, SERVPRO can use priming paint over the drywall to seal the scent, not allowing it to permeate the air anymore. Lastly, we can spray an antifungal agent to finish the job.
 
Should your home suffer mold damage, do not delay when getting help. Phone SERVPRO of Windham & Windsor Counties by dialing (802) 674-8004. Night or day, we can keep the mold away.
