Mold Damage Technicians In Siesta Key Talk About Air Quaity Issues

If water ever enters a building in Siesta Key, there is a chance fungi can develop. Once water enters the interior of a structure, the organic materials making up your house can develop mold damage. A fungus needs a presence of moisture, an organic food source such as wood or paper and temperatures between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit to thrive. Contamination can also grow on the surface of organic materials if the indoor relative humidity levels stay at 70 percent or above for more than a day or two. Once the mold damage has formed, the contaminated materials grow structures called hyphae that release seed-like spores that allow for reproduction.
 
Once the hyphae begin to grow in all three directions, they start releasing several microscopic spores that rise and start to float around in the air. These spores float around inside your home in Siesta Key before causing mold damage in another part of the building. Once the spores become airborne, they look for other organic sources that have elevated moisture levels inside your home. If left untreated, the spores floating around your structure can cause growth in several other locations inside your house. If you call in a professional restoration company like SERVPRO, we can reduce the chances that your current fungal contamination situation will get worse and spread to other areas inside your residence.
 
Since mold can cause health effects with some people, it is vital that our SERVPRO technicians take measures to prevent spores from spreading throughout your home. Once they get into the air, the reproductive spores can travel into your heating and ventilation system. The spores can then stick to the sides of the ventilation tubing and cause you indoor air quality issues.
 
Once spores get inside your ventilation system, it may take specialized vent cleaning procedures to rid the vents of spores and other contamination. Cleaning the system with antimicrobial chemicals can help rid your vents of spores and prevent future fungal growth. If you ever notice mold inside your place of residence, call SERVPRO of South Sarasota at (941) 552-6319 24 hours a day.
