Florida is known for its sunny days and sandy beaches. There is lots of water and lots of humidity, which unfortunately can also lead to mold. This is why it is important to be familiar with your options for South Florida mold remediation.
Let’s take a quick look at how the process works in this area.
Mold grows from a fungus and these fungi are typically fed by certain environments. In Southern Florida, there are 11 primary types of mold that you might come across.
Here are the main types.
Each of them has its own unique qualities that make them what they are. An expert in mold inspection and remediation will be able to figure out just what type of mold you might be facing.
Mold spores and seeds can really come from just about anywhere. In South Florida specifically, they are all over the place. This area is also known for high heat, high humidity, and quite a bit of rainfall. All of these things make it an easy breeding ground for mold.
Mold simply needs food and water to grow. The good news is that not every single home in South Florida has to be worried they have hidden mold lurking. Most of the time when remediation is necessary, it is because there has been some form of water damage or high moisture.
Mold can grow easily where it’s trapped as well. Some prime examples include behind baseboards, under or behind cabinets, under wallpaper, under flooring and carpeting, and even inside walls.
When you bring in an expert for mold remediation, there is a specific process that is followed. From start to finish, your professionals need to be able to determine just what they are dealing with and then tackle it.
When you use a mold remediation company, they start with an assessment. Professionals will have any necessary equipment to search for mold and maybe even take samples or test mold as well.
Once they have assessed the area, they can make plans for remediation. This may require things like clearing that space, using specialized air filtration, removing mold, and restoring the space. It should also include cleaning to ensure spores are not loose elsewhere.
It is very important to use a certified mold assessor for mold removal. These assessors provide added reassurance of proper mold removal and safe handling.
After remediation is complete, any restoration that needs to take place can occur.
