Many Common Conditions Can Result in Needing Mold Remediation for Liverpool Properties

Mold is an underrated yet heavily destructive emergency for homes. Moist conditions can result from several circumstances to allow mold to develop and spread. 

Unresolved Water Damage

Mold remediation for Liverpool is often necessary when water damage to the property goes unresolved. The longer that materials stay exposed to moisture and standing water, the more the environment and hosting materials are impacted to facilitate these destructive colonies. Organisms need moisture to form colonies, and if homeowners only dry up surface water damage after an emergency, structural cavities can be an ideal damp location for growth. SERVPRO tracks drying processes using advanced tools like:

  • Surface moisture meters
  • Hygrometers
  • Probing detectors
  • Thermal imagery

Humid Conditions

Onondaga County experiences several types of adverse weather conditions throughout the year, from heavy snowfall to torrential rains. Moisture and humidity present year-round are among the most significant contributors to mold damage for area properties. Excessive moisture and water content in the environment produce the ideal conditions for mold development in as little as 48 hours, so homeowners need to diligently react when lingering moisture and humidity are a concern within a household. SERVPRO can often manage moisture damage threats in the air through the specific placement and operation of dehumidification equipment like low-grain refrigerant units in our inventory. 

Inadequate Ventilation

Another common reason for mold to develop in homes is poor ventilation. Bathrooms and laundry areas are where this type of inadequacy causes the greatest threats of mold growth and spread. Without the means to ventilate steam and damp conditions possible around water-fed appliances and fixtures of your plumbing system, mold damage can ensue. 

Understanding the common causes of mold development can be instrumental in preventing recurrences in your home and quickly managing the threat when it exists.
