SERVPRO Technicians Arrive with Detection Tools to Find Hidden Mold in Your Home

Circulating air in your house can be a very incredible convenience. For anyone that has lived in the times where you did not have air conditioning or central heating for your Conway home, you can appreciate the convenience even more. Even with all of the advancements in the way that these appliances run and operate when you are using them to their fullest abilities, there are some precautions and potential risks that you are taking that you might not know. 

You likely didn’t know that homes have dealt with mold damage in Conway tied explicitly to the operation of circulating air appliances like furnaces or air conditioners. There are many instances that you do not even see this mold damage with your own eyes, but yet your nose can pick up the scent of must typical of a growing colony. The root of this problem is two-fold, from not having your duct system adequately maintained and cleaned over years of use and also the result of condensation on the metal combined with enough organic material in the network of ducts to allow mold colonies to grow. 

With it being common knowledge now that mold can cause health effects to those exposed to it, it indeed is not something that you want to allow to circulate throughout your home freely. Our SERVPRO professionals become certified in mold remediation to the high standards of the IICRC. We have gotten trained in all types of mold and fungal growth, as well as the best (and safest) means of removal. 

The first step is stopping the circulation of the air and working quickly to locate the colonies that are growing within the duct system. Once located, our SERVPRO technicians find the best way to reach this affected area, whether that is through the removal of sections to gain access or through concentrated vacuuming. Since your nose found the problem in the first place, this odor needs to be dealt with as well. Typically, a fogger would get used for this process. This dense chemical compound overtakes and neutralizes the musty smell, leaving no scent behind at all. 

Mold damage is something that you should take care of as soon as you encounter it. Our certified and experienced professionals at SERVPRO of Conway / Holden Heights are available to help whenever you need us. All you have to do is give us a call anytime at 407) 985-3200.
