Damp Winters Can Lead to Mold Damage in the Attic of Your Wilmington Residence
No Matter the Season, SERVPRO Remediates Mold Infestations in Homes
Wet winter weather can bother even the best of us in Wilmington, but it can also pose problems for your home. Ice dams can create watery problems inside your attic. As your home's heat rises, this moisture quickly evaporates.
Wilmington homes can eventually sustain mold damage, especially in the attic, when temperatures over the winter fluctuated considerably. Ice dams can quietly damage shingles and the roof's structure underneath, allowing only a minute amount of water inside the attic. Even if you never noticed stains on ceilings or other signs of intrusive water, mold damage can quickly get out of control in less-used areas of your home, especially the attic.
Our technicians can help restore your home, from the attic to the ground, and fend off mold damage. Microbes do not require much moisture to support their life cycle, so we begin there. We eliminate the availability of water so microbes can no longer grow. This includes the presence of moisture in materials and belongings, as well as humidity in the air.
After we restore your home's interior to a dry state, we can begin extracting mold particles, mold-damaged materials, and cleaning your belongings of mold. Vacuums with various attachments and HEPA filters extract microbes from even the most delicate items you store in your attic while keeping the mold in our vacuum's tank.
Air scrubbers help keep the air from transporting mold to other areas in your attic, and because we seal off the area, these should not find their way into your living space. Because attics typically include unfinished wood, we know that these microbes can reach deep into the rough surfaces of your roof's structure. We treat these places with antimicrobial agents that quickly dry to a safe but effective, albeit somewhat invisible, coating.
