Mold Remediation Learn How Mold Can Damage Your Oak Ridge Property Mold caused by a leaky pipe needs immediate removal.

The Ever-Present Microbe Does Not Mean Mold Damage Must Occur in Oak Ridge Properties

Microbes a new corner of Oak Ridge, and only the unwanted presence of water activates these otherwise harmless microorganisms. Once this occurs, however, and water continues to provide them with easy access to vital nutrients, mold can continue growing indefinitely.
 
Homes in Oak Ridge require mold damage remediation to thwart growth and stop homes from succumbing to this constantly growing microbe. SERVPRO's specialists receive training in mold damage remediation and can provide you with specific information about how these can damage your property.
 
Microbes can exist anywhere, even in freezing temperatures. However, they only exist in a dormant state most of the time. They require warmer, but shady locations, and enough water to release the nutrients from materials nearby as well as moisture to keep them growing.  This is why they prefer attics and basements, as well as closed-off rooms, crawlspaces, and under cabinets. A lack of air currents also helps microorganisms grow quickly and profusely.
 
SERVPRO can help locate where moisture enters your home's living space and close the source off, this does not kill off the mold itself but forces it back into a dormant state. However, any microbes that settle in the area cannot grow, either. We perform remediation of areas with mold damage in a manner that keeps the already present ones contained, and also set up air scrubbers to remove any spores from the home's environment.
 
No amount of remediation can wipe your home completely free of mold and mildew spores. Microbes are continually being reintroduced, as well, from outside sources. However, proper mold damage remediation gives your home a fresh start by reducing the population down to a healthy number and eliminating any sources of moisture.
