Mold Grows on Stored Items, Call SERVPRO for Help


Summer is just around the corner, and many people are preparing for the upcoming activities that so many love and enjoy. Florida might be sunny most of the year, but school and other responsibilities often get in the way of recreational pursuits.


People who store their sports equipment might find that their favorite items now have mold damage when they retrieve them. In Fort Myers mold grows everywhere, especially in dark spaces. Putting things in storage before they are completely dry can allow mold to grow unchecked for the months they remain unused.
 
Mold can attack any material. Items used in and around the water might be full of rubber-based materials that have organic debris on their surfaces, but this can hold onto moisture long after the rest of the item is dry. Kayaks, life vests, snorkeling gear, and anything else you love to use over the summer is not only the source of fun for you and your family, but it is also expensive. Finding your investment apparently destroyed is not a good way to bring in the summer.
 
SERVPRO uses mold inhibitors like concrobium when cleaning personal belongings such as sporting goods. This is an effective product that uses a special salt combination that is sprayed, fogged, or wiped on different materials ranging from concrete to leather. As it dries, concrobium crushes any mold present, rendering it unable to continue growing. Concrobium is safe to use in homes where children and pets live and does not harm plants. Another benefit is that it cannot bleach or discolor materials. Concrobium is capable of restoring sporting goods to usable condition again.
 
Because this chemical does not bleach or discolor anything, we allow it to dry before wiping the item free of mold and then reapply more of the concrobium as a protectant. There are products made for exterior use as well as interior use. We can restore tents, camping gear, and leather items such as saddles and boots that have been afflicted by mold contamination.
 
SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda wants you and your family to be able to enjoy every minute of summer. This is why you can contact us anytime, day or night, weekends and holidays included, at (941) 575-5910. We can help you get your summer off to a great start.
