Hidden Mold in Low Traffic Areas of Your Home in Roselle

10/1/2018 (Permalink)

Condensation in your basement may cause mold growth.

In the Chicago suburbs, the winter months are full of temperature fluctuations. In areas with little or no insulation, such as your basement, these drastic temperatures changes can cause condensation to form on walls and other hard surfaces. This increase in moisture is the perfect environment for mold growth.

Because these areas are usually not frequently occupied, mold growth in these areas can be hard to spot. Luckily, experienced SERVPRO professionals work in every part of the home, from general living areas to hard-to-reach places such as attics, basements and crawlspaces. After testing is performed to determine the presence of mold, our technicians work quickly to begin remediation.

If spotted early enough, demo and removal of damaged materials may not be required. With proper cleaning and preventative treatment, our technicians may be able to thoroughly kill mold growth while saving affected materials. In basements, preventative measures may also include the installation of dehumidifiers and sump pumps. After the damage is cleaned, we spray all affected areas with with a fast-drying and safe anti-microbial agent to ensure further prevention of mold growth.
