Mold Damage In Your Pinellas County Kitchen And Bathroom Areas

Mold Damage In Your Kitchen And Bathroom Areas

As a homeowner, you strive to do all that you can to preserve not only your Pinellas County property but to keep the occupants of this house safe as well. While many threats can present themselves throughout the time you live in any home, none can spread as quickly or as alarmingly as fungus. It is often believed that these kinds of occurrences only happen in dank basements and crawlspaces, but this is not always the case.

While crawlspaces are often a source for mold damages in Pinellas County homes, SERVPRO professionals have found it just as likely to see these colonies in rooms that are moisture-ridden and poorly ventilated. Two common locations you might encounter mold growth in your home under these conditions are the bathroom and kitchen areas. These often contend with a lot of persistent moisture, especially when there is inadequate or non-existent ventilation available.

Federal building code regulations for commercial and residential structures suggest that ventilation is not a requirement when an accessible window is installed in the room. While windows can remove some of this stagnant and damp air, it often lacks the force to physically pull this threat to the exterior of your home like an actual vacuum system might. The result can be the seating and colonization of present mold spores on organic surfaces like drywall and wood.

Remediation of this threat is something that any homeowner should take very seriously. Not only can mold colonies lead to potential health effects for those exposed, but such a high traffic area like the bathroom and kitchen can also lead to more constant exposure and worsening health risks. SERVPRO applied microbial remediation technicians can help to isolate this area and work efficiently to resolve this issue.

You might not always consider the possibility of mold growth in your home, but you should have a plan in place to contend with this threat should it arise. Our experienced SERVPRO of Seminole & Central Gulf Beaches remediation technicians is standing by 24/7 to help at (727) 391-6212.
