Mold Remediation and Restoration

When Mold Spreads in Danbury

Mold can spread quickly through your Danbury home or business. The spores from mold release mycotoxins. Once airborne, mold may cause health problems for people and pets. Over time, mustiness, mildew, and mold colonization can reduce the value of furniture, damage appliances, and electrical equipment. Additionally, it gives off an unpleasant odor. Any one of these reasons is enough to reach out to SERVPRO of Danbury / Ridgefield for mold cleanup and remediation.

Mold requires certain conditions to thrive and spread. Spores are everywhere, so stopping the problem at the source is key to avoidance. Residential attics are a prevalent location for mold.

Be sure and look for mold the following places:

• Often water finds access to an attic through the roof or eves.
• Burst pipes are apparent, but invisible leaks behind walls are challenging.
• When air doesn’t circulate, closets or shelves or cabinets next to a wall cause stagnant, moist air to accumulate.
• In warmer months, humid weather can be a problem, especially in basements.
• Heavy rains and improper ground slope can cause water intrusion at foundations, garages, and basements.
• Dampness due to condensation can cause mold on walls and furniture and cause wooden window frames to rot.

Mold can weaken structural elements and degrade construction materials causing irreparable damages. Call us before it is too late.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • 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 AC/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. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture 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.
