The Best Way To Deal With Bathroom Mold Damage

Our bathrooms are vulnerable to mold damage because they are usually warm and wet – conditions favorable for mold growth. Apart from the damage it causes, mold can lead to health effects, and there is a need to remove the mold as soon as you can and prevent exposure to your loved ones. Tearing all the tiles covered with the mold growth is not the best option, there are safety precautions that professionals observe when dealing with such situations in Redington Beach.

Sometimes it is not possible to trace mold damage in your Redington Beach bathroom since it can grow in hidden places. Our SERVPRO technicians have the experience and know the popular areas to locate the mold. We can check under the sink, tub, toilet, and other areas. If it is growing on porous materials such as shower curtains, rugs, and similar items, it can be challenging to do the cleaning adequately. In such cases, we discard and advise you to replace the items. The same applies when the mold is growing on carpets, drywall, and wallpapers.

Our SERVPRO technicians use sturdy plastic bags to enclose the materials we remove from your bathroom. Since there is a possibility of the mold spreading to clean areas within the structure, we begin by containing the area. For instance, we can use duct tape and heavy plastic sheeting to cover the HVAC system's air vents so that the mold spores do not enter. Establishing a negative pressure and surrounding the area with some plastic sheeting are part for the containment measures.

After removing the mold from your bathroom, allow our SERVPRO team to inspect the entire structure for mold. The spores are so light and can spread quickly from one part of the structure to another. So do not be surprised if we discover some mold growth in a different room.
