SERVPRO Remediates Chicago Homes with Mold Growth

Mold loves to grow in places with high moisture content. A home or business with a water source from a leak, a crack, or a flood disaster is susceptible to mold infestation. Whether the mold is found in a Chicago basement, a bathroom, or anywhere else, it is a sign that will quickly multiply because mold spores are airborne, and they will attach to anything and start spreading. If you see mold, address it immediately so that it does not cause any health effects.

Mold is a natural existing fungus that is used beneficially and is one of the largest destroyers of organic surfaces anywhere. Taking immediate action to control Chicago mold damage can be done by using a dehumidifier. Dehumidifiers are often used to eliminate musty smells that often occur in the basement. They are very successful in removing excess moisture from the air to keep mold and mildew at bay.

SERVPRO provides mold damage remediation in Chicago, including restoring humidity control. No need for our customers to seek to purchase their own equipment. The key to using the right dehumidifier is to purchase one that will maintain the humidity level at less than 50% in residential homes and between 60% to 70% in commercial buildings. Also, find a dehumidifier with a filter design to trap harmful bacteria and mold spores, thus limiting potential growth. Dehumidifiers help to lower a room's temperature and decrease the temperature of the materials in the walls, floors, and ceilings of the home.

A lower relative humidity, RH, means that the potential for excess moisture to form condensation on these furniture and other items is removed; thus, the ability for mold to grow. There are varying-sized dehumidifiers. Some dehumidifying devices will cover a single room, but other dehumidifiers have a higher capacity to reduce the moisture content in an entire house. Special equipment can also treat large industrial structures.

Many Chicago homeowners who see mold in their abode feel embarrassed and ashamed. Please don't feel that way because mold is all around us, both indoors and outdoors.
