Mold Damage Experts Talk About Problems With Bathrooms

One part of your Carefree home that is susceptible to have problems with water leaks is your bathroom. Bathrooms have several nooks and crannies where mold damage can take place. These rooms inside your home also have several water pipes and drain lines running in and out of them. Humidity levels are usually elevated inside bathrooms due to the use of water inside them. Microbes naturally exist all throughout any house, and they can get activated by moisture and turn into a mold damage situation.

A fungus only needs an organic food source, temperatures around normal room temperature range, and excessive moisture to form and grow. Once fungi develop, they produce spores which can get in the air and cause mold damage in your Carefree home in places not near the bathroom. Whenever mitigating fungal problems, our SERVPRO technicians take extra measures to prevent secondary problems. It is easy for particles to spread around your house during the work process if the correct procedures are not followed.

Our SERVPRO restoration team is IICRC certified, and we have experience with several different types of problems associated with fungi. As soon as we show up at your property, we start spraying the area with an antimicrobial solution. This specialized chemical attacks spores created by mold and helps aid in preventing the contamination from spreading. We also set up a containment chamber that seals off the affected bathroom so that particles created by the work process cannot escape the contaminated area.

In most cases, we also use air scrubbers to keep spores from spreading and to help maintain good air quality inside the building. We attach the scrubbers to the side of a containment chamber so that it creates negative air pressure inside the contaminated area. The dust and particles created by the work process then get sucked into the scrubber and drawn past a HEPA filter that can trap even the most microscopic particles.

If you ever notice mold growth inside your bathroom, call SERVPRO of Phoenix at (480) 503-2090 24/7.
