Mold Remediation Remodeling Can Lead To The Discovery Of Mold Damage In Your Nashville Home Mold can put a dent in your investment, but the incorrect handling of an infestation of mold can make matters much worse.

Discovery Of Mold Damage


There are several stories about people discovering pieces of the past, some of which were very valuable, while they were in the process of remodeling their home. Others end up finding problems. One of these more unpleasant discoveries sometimes includes different types of damage. Instead of a treasure that may have paid for the remodeling costs that lead to its discovery, these can often result in increased costs, instead.

Nashville has a very rich history, and this might lead some to believe that any discovery must be good, but too often, adding on to a home ends up with the discovery of mold damage. Few construction crews are qualified to handle the disposal of mold contamination. Without an expert in mold remediation and containment, contamination of other areas in your home can happen quite easily. SERVPRO has the ability to work alongside other crews to remediate mold correctly, so future problems do not become a reality.

Our professional team members are trained according to IICRC standards, and then given experience working with other employees. Our customers receive the best of both types of training. When remodeling, or another kind of work, is ongoing, discoveries such as mold damage can be surprising. We can install temporary plastic sheeting if it has not already been put in place, or expand the area contained if needed. As the remodeling crew removes damaged materials, we can dispose of these pieces of drywall, wood, or other material correctly, and then check for more areas that are affected by mold patches.

Giving your family the gift of an improved home is one that can be costly but is also well worth the price. Mold can put a dent in your investment, but the incorrect handling of an infestation of mold can make matters much worse. SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville wants to help you protect your family and your investment from harm. Call us at (615) 868-5324 whenever you find mold growing out of control in your home so we can remediate things correctly for you.
