Higher Than Normal Rates of Rainfall Bring Unexpected Visitors Into Your Marina Del Ray Home
SERVPRO Technicians Respond Quickly to Prevent the Spread of Mold
The Los Angeles region is not precisely a desert, but much of the water that fuels lush botanical growth comes from distant aquifers, not from the sky. Recent weather patterns brought record rainfall to the area, causing a variety of water damage issues including mold. SERVPRO offers mold remediation services, fast and efficient, for LA homeowners.
Finding mold damage inside your Marina Del Ray home after the heavy rains may be shocking. Mold spores lie dormant for years until moisture gives them the nourishment needed to breed. Homeowners who go decades without seeing any evidence of mold suddenly smell the unmistakable odor and see the characteristic colonies, often on walls and ceilings where overtaxed roofs and neglected gutters let the rain seep in during the unprecedented storms. Normal cleaning techniques are not suited to remedy mold. Consult us immediately for our expertise.
Mold infestation defies description, particularly if you have no or little experience with it. The colonies sweep across walls, seeking water and an organic surface upon which to grow. Attacking it with scrub brushes and common cleaning agents risks spreading spores, taking an isolated outbreak and moving it throughout the home. SERVPRO professionals train extensively to learn to manage mold according to EPA standards. Let our experts get to work as soon as you suspect mold has taken hold.
Containment is key, sometimes requiring specialized negative pressure machines and plastic sheeting barriers while our staff operates to remove the mold. If it grows on a solid surface, cleaning and disinfection usually make the area safe. Mold that infiltrates porous articles like sheetrock and upholstery cannot be removed completely, necessitating a careful tear out, disposal, and replacement. SERVPRO works with you and your insurer every step of the way, minimizing your expenses while ensuring your family’s health and welfare.
No mold remediation process completes without a search for the moisture that encouraged the growth. We detect the source or sources and share comprehensive advice on how to stop the water from invading your home. Follow our recommendations and ready yourself for the next “storm of the century,” this time without the mold problem.
