Mold Outbreak Discovered in Miramar Home?

1/3/2024 (Permalink)

Mold grows on a wall inside a house. We are trusted leaders in mold damage removal in Broward County.

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are highly trained and certified to remediate mold damage in Miramar. We are licensed in the State of Florida to inspect, identify, and remediate mold growth. Mold outbreaks are encouraged by warm, moist conditions. Water damage often results in mold outbreaks due to the following reasons:

Moisture Accumulation: Water damage, whether from leaks, storms, or high humidity, creates excess moisture in the affected areas. In humid climates, this moisture can linger for an extended period, providing an ideal environment for mold growth.

Mold Thrives in Humidity: Mold spores are naturally present in the air and can settle on surfaces. When humidity levels are consistently high, mold spores are more likely to take root and multiply.

Rapid Growth: Mold can begin to grow on various surfaces, including walls, ceilings, carpets, and wood, within 24 to 48 hours of exposure to moisture. In the warm and humid conditions of Miramar, this growth can occur even more rapidly.

Hard-to-Detect Areas: Water damage may not always be immediately visible, particularly in hidden areas like behind walls or under flooring. Mold can flourish undetected in these concealed spaces, making it challenging to address the issue until it becomes severe.

Moisture in Crawl Space Causes a Mold Outbreak in Pembroke Pines Home?

9/26/2023 (Permalink)

Walls of an unencapsulated crawl space show signs of mold and fungus growth. We provide outstanding mold remediation services in Broward County.

Some homes in Pembroke Pines have crawl spaces, a small area under the house that is used to access utilities and can be used for storage. If the crawl space is unencapsulated, it can encourage mold growth due to moisture intrusion. Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are trained and certified to identify and restore mold outbreaks, no matter how extensive the damage may be.

To prevent mold growth in your crawl space, it's necessary to encapsulate the crawl space. Crawl space encapsulation involves sealing the space with a vapor barrier, ensuring proper ventilation, addressing drainage issues, installing a sump pump if necessary, and employing dehumidifiers to control moisture levels. Regular inspections and maintenance are also essential to catch any potential issues early and prevent mold problems from developing or worsening.

“Contacted SERVPRO to remedy our Miramar, FL. home mold issues in three rooms. After copper pipe pinhole leaks. Once scheduled, Jimmy Zuniga (Lead Tech) exceeded expectations of the process from start to end for a week. Even though we had to do without an air conditioning system during this period, while outside temperatures were above 95 degrees. My wife and I endured, using portable fan's just knowing that SERVPRO had our best interests in mind. The team ensured none of our personal treasures were damaged, and every area was always swept and vacuumed during and after task completion. We surely will call on them again if needed.

Southwest Ranches Home Suffers Mold Outbreak From Hidden Water Damage?

7/18/2023 (Permalink)

A mold inspection is underway. We are leaders in mold remediation services in Broward County!

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are licensed and certified by the State of Florida and the Institute for Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification to identify and restore mold problems in homes and commercial businesses in Southwest Ranches.

Our climate encourages mold growth but there are steps that can be taken to discourage mold growth. Here are some tips from the Florida Department of Health for preventing mold growth:

  • The easiest way to prevent the mold from gaining a foothold is to control dampness. Keep your home clean and dry.
  • When water stands for even 24 hours, common molds can take hold
  • Keeping humidity levels below 60 percent and venting moisture from showering and cooking to the outside are several ways to prevent the conditions that can lead to mold growth
  • Clean and dry up spills within 24 hours
  • Dry out wet building materials and carpets within 24 hours
  • Use an air conditioner or a dehumidifier to reduce indoor humidity levels below 60 percent. If you have a central air conditioning system and need a dehumidifier to reduce relative humidity below 60 percent, you should have the air conditioning system examined for problems.
  • Do not carpet bathrooms or basements

Mold Problem Discovered After a Heavy Rain Event in Hollywood?

6/6/2023 (Permalink)

A mold remediation technician wearing a hazmat suit is shown. We are leaders in mold restoration services in Broward County!

Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are highly trained and certified to restore mold damage no matter how extensive the damage is. When it rains, mold can become a big problem in Hollywood homes and commercial businesses. Once mold spores identify the perfect moist and warm conditions to populate, the mold spores can colonize quickly, becoming visible in as little as 24 to 72 hours. Sometimes mold is a sign of water damage. The water may originate from a leaking pipe, or from a leaking roof. We will address the excess moisture problem to discourage the mold from returning once the mold removal process is complete.  

Here is a recent Google review from one of our customers:

“SERVPRO did an AMAZING job doing the mold remediation on my home. Rene and Gilbert were beyond professional and took the time to explain every step of the process to me. I would highly recommend them and this company. A big shout out to Marlene whose demeanor and understanding of the situation helped make SERVPRO an easy choice.

“I am not one to write reviews but the service I received was beyond all expectations. Marlene came out to provide a quote the next day after I called at 10 pm the night before. She was extremely knowledgeable and professional. My wife and I found mold in our home and were concerned about the cost to get the remediation done. Marlene ensured us she wouldn't keep it above a certain price and kept her word. Within the next couple of days the crew chief Rene Garcia came out with Gilbert to start the work. They both went above and beyond to not damage our countertops, taped everything off perfectly, and even salvaged our tiles. He kept me up to date with everything that was happening on-site. Thank you all for the work you have and I cannot recommend them enough.” Ian G.

What Is Causing Mold to Grow in My Miramar Home?

2/7/2023 (Permalink)

Mold is growing on walls in a house. We are trusted leaders in mold damage remediation in Broward County.

Our Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams are trusted leaders in all phases of mold damage remediation, from the initial inspection to the final stages of restoration. We have been restoring mold damage for many years, which is a common threat to homes and businesses in Broward County. Our technicians are trained and certified to remediate mold damage by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industries. Here is some information from our website about mold:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or air conditioning and heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture
  • Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water 
  • Mold colonies may produce allergens and irritants
  • Before mold remediation begins, any water or moisture sources must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Mold Remediation Tasks For Pembroke Pines Homes

Pembroke Pines missed the worst of the storms this year, but that does not mean residents are free from other disasters. Damage and repair costs from a fire or an unnoticed mold colony can be just as expensive as extreme weather.
 
Remediation of mold damage to Pembroke Pines homes requires more than bleach and a new coat of paint. For property severely affected by mold, SERVPRO technicians use an extensive inventory of cleaning agents and equipment needed to remove mold and return the item or even a room to a clean, usable condition.
 
As an example, bathrooms often suffer from the effects of mold due to their high humidity level compared to the rest of the home. Depending on the amount of mold present, our remediation specialists pull down drywall, replace grout, and either clean or dispose of cabinetry.
 
After the homeowner discovers mold, SERVPRO team members start remediation of the bathroom by removing structural property we cannot clean. Mold spores extend hyphae that grow into the surface of a material like drywall panels, feeding on it, and expanding the colony.
 
Cleaning or cutting out affected portions in the already weakened material often costs more in labor than buying and installing replacement panels. Once they complete drywall replacement, technicians sand them smooth and then paint each panel with a special paint that contains an anti-fungal chemical which significantly reduces the risk of future mold growth.
 
The grout between tiles or sealing the tub to the bathroom wall is often the first place an owner sees mold. Cleaning it can be labor intensive. SERVPRO techs can offer the best and least obstructive remedy for this type of mold infestation.
 
A mold colony often begins where there is a leak. That makes the cabinet surrounding a sink a likely hiding place for active, growing mold spores. If latex paint covers the interior of the cabinet, team members can usually remove mold with a mild cleaner and then spray the surface with an anti-fungal agent. If the spores penetrated the weak plywood or particle board that makes up most cabinets, technicians remove and replace the entire unit.
 
Mold remediation involves more than just cleaning and painting surfaces. SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines takes every action needed to remediate property from the effects of mold and return each home to its clean, original state whenever possible, "Like it never even happened." If you have or suspect mold in your home, call us today at (954) 998-0600 to schedule an inspection.

When You See a "Sign" of Mold, Call SERVPRO for Remediation at Your Pembroke Pines Property

Inadequate Cleanup Allows Mold Damage in Your Pembroke Pines Home

Water damages occur regularly to Pembroke Pines homes. While in many of these situations homeowners feel they can resolve the effects on their own without the experience and equipment available to our trusted restoration team, this is not always the case. Inadequate cleaning and drying following water damages to your home can lead to secondary effects like mold growth that could prove hazardous to both your home and its occupants.

Mold damages can occur in your Pembroke Pines home following persistent moisture and dampness in areas that you believed to have gotten restored. Our SERVPRO remediation specialists have encountered many situations in which mold colonies formed in areas like wall cavities, ceilings, and underneath flooring. These spaces can remain damp after water damage has presumably gotten dried up in your home, and the conditions for mold growth have been stymied.

Identifying the growing colony is one of the first steps to overcoming the damage it causes to your home. While some places mold grows can show signs such as spotting, certain materials can mask these effects from getting seen easily. One of the ways that you can identify an active colony growing in your home is by the musty, harsh odor generated by the organism. When you encounter this odor, it is likely a mold colony is in the vicinity, even if you cannot see it. The visible presence of staining is a sure sign of a fungal colony.

Our SERVPRO technicians can also help you to identify the presence of mold in your home and help to assess areas that pose a significant risk due to higher relative humidity levels. If mold gets discovered, our experienced remediation specialists can get to work on isolating the affected area with physical barriers and removing the organism from your home efficiently. Our equipment includes HEPA filtered air scrubbers to capture circulating mold spores during the removal process.

Mold growth is a condition that should get addressed as quickly as possible. Our SERVPRO of East Pembroke Pines AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians are available 24/7 to help restore the damages that it has caused. You will feel "Like it never even happened." You can reach our experienced team by calling (954) 998-0600.
