Unmitigated Water Damage in Your Nashua Home can Lead to Unnecessary Mold Growth
Certified SERVPRO Technicians Investigate Water Damage to Help Prevent Secondary Mold Damages
When homeowners in Nashua have homes with water stains and other types of damage and allow it to remain, this can lead to other problems developing inside the house. These can include many different kinds of issues and affect almost any part of your home.
If your Nashua home sustains water damage, one of these problems can include mold. At SERVPRO, we know that this can take only a few days for microbial populations to begin growing. These microorganisms flourish in damp locations, but even slight increases in moisture can provide enough of an environmental boost to start their life cycle anew.
Water from an accidental overflowing, such as with a toilet, tub, or sink, or a faulty appliance, a busted water line, or a flood, never disappears on its own. Water continually recycles itself, just like in the natural cycles experienced outdoors. However, inside your home, ice rarely forms, leaving moisture with only condensation and evaporation as its two modes of getting around inside your home.
As it goes through these two states of existence, water can leave stains on furniture, walls, and ceilings, cause photos to stick together, produce odors, and also bring about perfect conditions for mold. Restoring your home's natural moisture content helps eliminate these problems, and keeps microbes from growing out of control.
SERVPRO technicians use both drying equipment and anti-microbial agents to solve mold issues. However, the moisture content must always remain below certain levels to keep microbes, especially mold, dormant. Chemical agents can help to only a certain degree in many situations. We implement both dryness restoration and chemical inhibitors, to keep mold under control.
Water damage and its signs can often indicate that mold growth might exist. However, a lack of visible damage does not rule out the existence of either type - water or mold. Using moisture meters and hygrometers help us locate places that might harbor either, or both, of these problems inside your home. Once detected, we can work with you to resolve the issue.
SERVPRO of Nashua's technicians hold certificates from the IICRC and can help you successfully manage both water damage and possible mold growth that often accompanies hidden pockets of moisture. Call us at (603) 889-2311 for assistance in finding the best resolution for your home.
