How Important is Fast Mold Removal in Your Los Gatos Home?

When you discover fungal growth in your Los Gatos home, many homeowners do not entirely know what the next step to take is, or whom to call to assist with a situation like this. Moreover, fewer understand the severity of the situation and how allowing it to persist can cause significant damage to their house and even cause health effects for the family. 

Without understanding the severity of mold damage in your Los Gatos home, many homeowners do not react as quickly as they should to the situation. The longer that mold continues to spread and thrive in the affected areas of your home, the more damage it can potentially cause structurally. Depending on the type of mold growth, you could also be releasing mild toxins into the environment which can agitate respiratory conditions in the occupants of the house or cause irritations. Ultimately, it is critical to get professional assistance as quickly as possible when you discover mold growth in your house.

Our SERVPRO professionals can help by arriving quickly and establishing a containment protocol to keep the organism from spreading further by establishing both physical barriers and running equipment like our negative air chambers to catch mold spores circulating in the environment. Once the situation has gotten contained, it is critical for our technicians to work fast to preserve structural elements that can get preserved. Often materials like carpeting and drywall must get removed and replaced, but construction components like framing and flooring bases can often get preserved with the right approach like soda blasting and sanding.

We can even protect further damage within this area by spraying the antimicrobial solution on unaffected materials and surfaces to prevent fungal growth. Taking care of mold growth in your home must happen quickly, as the longer the problem persists the more issues that it can cause.

You can trust that our SERVPRO of Los Gatos / Monte Sereno applied microbial remediation technicians can arrive quickly with the resources to remove active colonies and restore your home. Give us a call today at (408) 600-2020.
