Mold Remediation Removing The Water Source That Allowed Mold Damage In Your Nashville Home One of the typical locations to find mold damage in your Nashville home is down in the lower levels like your basement and cellar area.

Mold Damage In Your Home

When you have discovered mold growth in your Nashville home, your first instinct might be to question the cleanliness of your habits. This is a common misconception about mold and fungal growth, but its presence has virtually nothing to do with the cleanliness of the home that you keep. In fact, it is very simple for mold and microbial growth to happen, and it only requires moisture and warmth to achieve.

One of the typical locations to find mold damage in your Nashville home is down in the lower levels like your basement and cellar area. These areas are warm enough often to support the colonization of mold spores and tend to be the most susceptible areas for moisture and dampness due to their simple construction and vulnerable mortar joints.

Our SERVPRO professionals can help you to not only overcome the mold growth in your home by working to remove the present colony but also to aid in identifying the source of the moisture that allowed the growth in the first place. This inspection of your entire affected area helps to determine what areas need to get isolated with air scrubbers to prevent the spread of active spores and possible points of moisture penetration that allows for the dampness in the room.

If these vulnerable points are small repairs, our SERVPRO technicians can help to seal up these points to prevent further water penetration in the immediate future. For larger and more complex repairs and rebuilds, you have to seek out the services of a qualified residential contractor instead before the remediation work can take place.

Overcoming mold growth in your home is nothing that any homeowner wants to have to contend with, but an unfortunate reality for many people living in the area. The best thing that you can do is to keep close tabs on areas of your home that might be susceptible to moisture and dampness and work to stay ahead of it. Our certified applied microbial remediation technicians at SERVPRO of Madison / Goodlettsville can help you to remove any colonies that you might encounter, and work quickly to return your home to its original conditions.
