Mold Damage Possible in the Dry Climate of Tracy

SERVPRO can remediate mold caused by water leaks in your home or business.

Uncontained water can cause mold growth in your home

Microbial growth is not just a plague of steamy, humid areas. It is entirely possible to find mold growth in a semi-arid area, including your home in Tracy. Finding an answer to a persistent mold problem is more likely when professional mold remediation experts weigh in with an inspection and suggestions.

Mold damage is a consequence of water incursion somewhere within your Tracy home. Water is always present indoors but is typically contained in pipes, sinks, tubs, appliances, and drains. If it leaks, seeps, or overflows you are faced with the potential for mold growth that will lead to damage if it is not abated. We offer mold remediation teams to homeowners and commercial clients in our community to ensure that mold proliferation is not a problem for you for long.

Mold spores are a natural part of both outdoor and indoor environments. They cause little harm as they float or collect on surfaces, and are so tiny we rarely realize they are there. When spores combine with water from a leak or a spill growth begins, all that is needed after the moisture activates the growth is a source of organic matter upon which the mold feeds.

Many structural materials and belongings in your home support mold growth once established. Wood and any surface or fixture made from cellulose like wallpaper, sheetrock, documents, or pictures are consumable by mold. Food, soaps, and even hair, dandruff, and dry skin cells nourish mold. No light is necessary, so mold grows unseen beneath cabinets, inside closets, behind walls, and under flooring.

Our SERVPRO mold remediation teams train extensively on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) protocols determined to be best practices to remediate mold damage. We have the skills and equipment to respond immediately to a mold problem in your home. First, we contain the area with plastic sheeting and often use negative pressure air scrubbers to filter out the moldy particles and keep infectious debris from spreading throughout unaffected areas of your dwelling. Next, we remove the mold colonies and any porous materials they infiltrated, disposing of the infestation pursuant to local law. A sanitization with appropriate antimicrobials completes the cleanup.

Finishing cleanup is not the last step. Our SERVPRO crew also locates and arranges for repair of the leak or other sources of moisture. Mold remediation is only successful when water and mold do not mix in the first place.
