Mold In Hard-To-Reach Places
Mold can get behind walls, under crawl spaces, into tiny cracks and corners, and other hard-to-reach places in a home with ease. This is what has allowed mold to survive throughout the planet's history: it seeks out places where little else can grow, takes root there, and spreads out as far as it can. While this ability is great for the mold, it is bad for your home. Mold eats away at building materials and can even cause health problems for residents. SERVPRO technicians make sure to check these important hard-to-reach places in most mold remediations, in case a colony has taken root without the homeowner noticing.
Carpeting is especially susceptible to mold damage. There are a few reasons why carpeting fosters mold growth. First, carpets are absorbent and can store spilled liquid for extended periods of time, giving the mold a suitable and lasting source of moisture to survive on. Second, the fibers and weaving used in most types of carpeting make an excellent home for growing mold spores. We use thermal, chemical, and sometimes physical checks to determine if mold has worked its way under any carpeting.
