A Lack of Proper Ventilation Inside of Your Evansburg Bathroom Can Cause Mold Damage
Mold damage in your bathroom
When you use your shower, the bathroom becomes steamy from the heat and moisture, and that excess moisture has the power to create mold damage. However, the steam that comes off a shower is usually handled by a ventilation fan built into your ceiling. When that fan doesn't work correctly, the steam and moisture inside your small bathroom now have nowhere to go. Instead, it clings to the walls and creates a very damp environment that is ideal for the growth of mold spores.
You may notice the mold damage growing inside of your Evansburg bathroom by sight or smell. As mold grows, it usually creates small patches of greyish-green, or even blue, speckles along the walls. Additionally, mold also creates a musty scent that is sometimes notable before visual confirmation occurs. When you suspect that mold is growing inside of your home, it is often wiser to call for remediation as soon as possible rather than call for testing. The sight and smell of mold means that the problem is grand enough to call for a solution.
When you reach out to SERVPRO, the first employee we sent to your home is our Estimator. While waiting for our team of IICRC-certified technicians to arrive, they can explain to you that some basic standards are involved. These practices include quarantining the area, disinfecting the mold, cleaning up dust and debris, and ensuring that the problem that caused the mold in the first place is addressed. When our SERVPRO technicians arrive, they can begin remediation as soon as possible.
Our technicians can start by sectioning off the bathroom from the rest of the house using plastic sheeting. It is essential for all entry points to be covered, including the door and vents. Afterward, SERVPRO can begin to remove the mold from the inside. Our technicians can remove any porous material that the mold has grown onto and clean any non-porous or semi-porous items with disinfectant. From there, our techs can use an antifungal solution to help prevent regrowth.
After our technicians have cleaned up the debris and dust, we can remove the plastic sheeting. We can walk you through what caused the mold problem and then recommend a contractor who can install a new ventilation fan and repair any sections of your wall that may have needed to come down.
