Watch Out for Mold in Our Hot and Rainy Summer Weather

7/20/2021 (Permalink)

Mold in humid environment Heat, rain and humidity causing potentially dangerous mold growth.

Humidity is part of our lives here in Mobile County and along the Alabama Gulf Coast. This is especially true as the summer months come along. Even with our homes and businesses using air conditioners during our humid months, it is not uncommon for the weather to make its way into them, especially during the rainy season. With the recent months of rain and storms, slow leaks might be undetectable with the naked eye. If you suspect humidity is creating a nurturing environment for mold growth and want a mold inspection performed by a certified company contact SERVPRO of Mobile County. We are the trusted leaders in our area. 

Mold can cause many health effects and removing it properly is key. If you have a vacant house or commercial property that has been uninhabited for long periods of time, it is common for mold to spread.  The recent rainy weather is a perfect recipe for potential issues of mold spreading. Be vigilant in checking your properties.  If you come across a mold issue, contact SERVPRO of Mobile County to assess your mold issue.

  • Containment and Safety Precautions- our teams wear personal protective equipment to take care of mold in your home and business. Full body suits, masks, and respirators may be necessary to protect the staff. If mold is detected, we will install physical barriers to preventing the spread of the mold to other areas of the home or business. 
  • Removal- removing mold involves discarding any materials beyond being salvaged and cleaning each surface with equipment such as HEPA vacuums and sprayers. In this process, we assess the structural integrity of furniture and space itself and make additional recommendations as needed.
  • Drying- key to humidity control, we dry the area thoroughly to prevent future growth. Restoring normal humidity levels is possible thanks to specialized equipment such as air movers, dehumidifiers, and desiccants.

If you suspect mold in you home or business, place your trust in the leader in the industry with SERVPRO of Mobile County.  We are available 24/7 at 251-343-0534.
