What Is Black Mold?  

SERVPRO of Westminster's technicians have the manpower and equipment to asses the damages caused by mold on properties. With their training, they are able to identify the severity of the mold and how the situation should be handled. 

Mold growth is common in areas of the hoe where there is an excess amount of moisture. Mold tends to spread in damp areas that are untreated. 

Where does moisture come from? 

Mold tends to spread and grow when it has access to food and wet surfaces. But moisture tends to come from: 

  • Leaky pipes 
  • High humidity 
  • Water damage
  • Condensation   

Not all mold needs professional help to remove. Mold can stop growing when it first starts growing with cleaning products. However, mold can become severe and lead to more property damage if not treated correctly.

Mitigation can happen if the mold isn't as severe. Most homeowners and technicians try to salvage as much items as possible because it's unnecessary to replace everything. In some situations, its best to mitigate and restore areas of the home. 

Areas and items such as furniture, drywall, carpet and more may need to be disinfected and replaced.
