One of the most unfortunate discoveries that a Cypress homeowner can make is finding mold growing in their house. Quickly you pour through the potential reasons that it may exist here, but ultimately, many homeowners are not as savvy to the causes of fungal and microbial growth as they likely should be. For spores to seat into colonies, the only essential conditions are moisture and warmth.

While the causes of moisture throughout areas of your home can occur from multiple sources, preventing these situations is critical to preventing mold growth. In fact, it takes a mere 72 hours from the exposure of spores to the moisture present in the now affected area of your home to colonize and thrive. Now, you have to contend with the mold damages to your Cypress home and seek the professional expertise of our SERVPRO remediation specialists.

From the time that our professionals arrive at your home, we get to work quickly on determining the full scope of the damage that your home faces, and what must occur to restore these damages and remove the colonies. The remediation process relies heavily on isolating the affected areas while removal is underway and drying out this region of your home to prevent recurrences.

Isolation of this area typically involves air scrubbers with HEPA filters to catch airborne microscopic mold spores from reaching new areas of your home. At this same time, our SERVPRO professionals work to identify the source of the moisture that allowed these spores to thrive. Repairing this source can prevent recurrences, though if the source is unable to get isolated to a specific place or occurrence, dehumidification efforts get recommended to continue indefinitely to remove moisture from the area immediately.

Preventing mold growth in your home is not always as simple as you might think it would be. Unless you check every area of your house regularly for moisture or musty scents, you might not recognize there is a problem until it is a widespread one. Trust our applied microbial remediation technicians at SERVPRO of Seal Beach / Los Alamitos / Cypress to help you remove the colonies and reclaim your house from this intruder.
