When Water Damage Causes Water Growth in Merrimack
Water Damage Merrimack – Avoiding Mold Growth
Whenever water penetrates the structure of a home around windows and doors or perhaps there is a water leak, insufficient drying can lead to the growth of mold infestations. Mold spores are constantly in the air. Mold spores prefer warm moist conditions where there are lots of food sources typically found in homes.
SERVPRO has been providing water damage mitigation and recovery for Merrimack and surrounding areas for several decades. We train our technicians to thoroughly dry the contents and structure of your home every time there is a water event. SERVPRO knows how important it is to limit moisture hot spots that can provide a perfect set of conditions for mold growth. We are available on a 24 hour / 7-day basis and usually on-site in less than four hours from the initial call.
Moisture and Mold
Initially, most consumers are concerned about the damage a water leak is doing to their carpets, their flooring, and exposed contents. Many attempts to dry their home themselves only to find a few days later, mold growing on surfaces within their home. Mold spores can develop high concentrations in a moist environment and cause health effects for many people with existing respiratory problems.
SERVPRO investigates all potential areas of your home to ensure that we return all moisture and humidity to normal levels. We use water extractors on carpeting, and utilize air movers to blow air under carpets, inside walls, and around furniture. The air absorbs moisture, which is then removed by dehumidifiers placed in your home.
We also check any areas where water may have seeped. For example, under the kitchen or laundry room cupboards, inside walls behind baseboards are checked using moisture meters. If we find significant moisture inside walls, we may drill holes in the walls near the floor to circulate air or make a flood cut to remove water and moisture inside the wall.
SERVPRO ensures that all areas of your home are dried before we leave. We also have contractor services available to help complete any repairs that are needed and avoid unnecessary delays.
