Knowing where to expect mold damage can help Santa Clarita homeowners prepare for this possibility

Mold is an underestimated threat for area homes. Many property owners do not expect to be a target, nor do they understand where these microorganisms are most readily found in properties.

The Threat of Mold in Moist Environments

Mold damage in Santa Clarita homes can be a considerable threat to the structure. With how widespread these conditions can become; many living space areas could be impacted within a brief period. There are multiple compromising characteristics of mold growth, including:

  • Rapidly spreading
  • Negative Health Effects
  • Strong odor-producing
  • Destructive

Attic Mold Damage

While mold can occur in many areas of a home or business, strong weather systems and aging roofs make for attic moisture concerns. Persistent dampness in an attic space facilitates mold growth that can spread fast to the main living spaces below.

Battling Mold in Crawlspaces

With homes experiencing recurring threats like flooding and groundwater threats, areas of houses like the crawlspace are often a centerpiece for mold activity. We work fast to overcome moist conditions and standing water. Another option for protection moving forward is crawlspace encapsulation to redirect water away from the structure and inhibit direct moisture and mold damages.

Mold Development in the Bathroom

Humid conditions can often persist in areas like the bathroom when poor ventilation is a concern. When mold exists in these areas, drywall, pressed wood, and other organic structural elements can become host to active colonies. We quickly assess the severity of the situation to remove organisms.

No matter where mold develops in your home or business, it must be dealt with as soon as possible. Organisms can be destructive to hosting materials, making it critical for effective remediation to get started fast. The IICRC certified AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians on our crews are the answer. Our SERVPRO of Santa Clarita Valley team has experience and training with quick mold removal actions.
