Moisture and Mold in Crawl Spaces in Fort Myers--Call SERVPRO for Remediation

SERVPRO Offers Expertise with Mechanical Means to Cleanup Mold Infestations

When people think of the basement in their Fort Myers home, many might envision a darker area that is often moist and damp in areas. The revelation comes from the kind of basements that many people had growing up, but these kinds of conditions are problematic for those that live in your home. When the temperatures begin to rise in a damp basement area, mold spores have the kind of food they need to develop and grow on surfaces throughout the basement. Here in South Florida we typically have to deal with mold infestations in our crawl spaces. Same problem, too much moisture and humidity means mold growth.
 
The presence of mold damage in your Fort Myers home can cause health effects for all of its occupants. Instead of brushing a problem like this off to a more convenient time, it is something that should be handled immediately by professional remediation specialists that know how to remove mold colonies wholly and successfully. However, removal of all mold spores is not possible. Our highly trained SERVPRO specialists fit this description and can be a natural choice to help you navigate the remediation of mold damage in your home.
 
Conventional cleaning methods are typically ineffective to eradicate mold colonies because they fail to penetrate deeply enough to remove the entire fungal organism. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists have the right tools and chemicals to apply, and them mechanically remove the infestation. Then air scrubbers fitted with HEPA filters can reach the farthest depths of seated mold colonies to remove them. We quarantine the area using negative air chambers to prevent the further spread of active mold spores through the cleaning process, aiding in preventing further damages.
 
Locating the source of the moisture and finding a solution to reduce or eliminate it in the air is a critical step in our remediation process. Without going to these lengths, mold can grow again and again as long as the conditions are right. Sometimes this solution is simple to locate, such as water seeping from mortar joints in your foundation walls. Other times it is impossible to prevent entirely, encouraging you to continue dehumidification efforts on your own indefinitely. 

Our SERVPRO of N. Ft. Myers / Punta Gorda IICRC certified remediation specialists are available 24/7 by calling (941) 575-5910.
