Cleaning Up Mold Damage In Your Los Angeles Residence

Cleaning Up Mold Damage

Many people have heard about black mold and how much harm it can cause. One thing that this seems to downplay is that any overgrowth of mold in your home in Los Angeles can cause damage to your residence's interior regardless of the visible color.

When your home in Los Angeles sustains mold damage, a color other than black does not mean it is okay to ignore its growth. Any color of mold can create substantial damage to materials. Mold colonies give off spores to reproduce, and these can cause your home to smell musty and unpleasant. This process can also cause health effects in people.

Mold spores can travel anywhere in your home that contains air. Furnaces, air vents, heating and cooling ducts, crawlspaces, attics, and even the interior of walls can hold spores and mold colonies. One thing to know about where mold can grow is that this microorganism requires water. SERVPRO technicians use this requirement to find locations in your home that are the most likely to harbor mold and mildew.

Moisture detectors help us locate damp areas. We use these small but powerful tools to help us determine which areas hold mold damage as well as damage from water. Locating the source of this water can also help you find slow leaks from pipes or drains or breaks in your home's roof or other exterior locations.

Remediating the mold damage and leaving your home with a fresh start can make things feel cleaner, as well. Mold spores often feel dusty and cover everything when a heavy infestation occurs. We carry out the proper set-up and then quickly take care of the messy work. Our specialists are certified by the IICRC and stay up-to-date on recent developments and the newest techniques. We want to serve our customers to the best of our ability and provide them with the most value possible.

Residents of Chinatown, Echo Park, and Silver Lake can call SERVPRO of Silver Lake / Echo Park at (323) 255-1000, 24/7, every day of the year for assistance with mold damage and its related problems.
