Remediation For Mold Damage In Your Ham Lake Kitchen

11/8/2017 (Permalink)

Mold often grows in damp places, and a small leak or drip can allow this to happen rapidly.

Mold Damage In Your Kitchen

Preparing meals and baked treats for the holidays often bring other family members and relatives into your kitchen to help out and share recipes. Teaching younger members of the family traditions also build memories of their visits to your Ham Lake home. During these activities, constant use of your sink for both cleaning and inclusion in the many foods made, an increase from the everyday activities.

Preparing your Ham Lake kitchen for these activities can expose existing mold damage behind sinks, or underneath them. Mold often grows in damp places, and a small leak or drip can allow this to happen rapidly. SERVPRO professionals work quickly so your plans can stay the same. We know you want to share enjoyable time with family, not worry about mold exposure, which can cause health effects.

Mold remediation does not always mean tearing everything out of your home. We only perform tear-out work where the mold currently exists. We prefer to treat any other areas containing excess moisture with other measures geared toward preventing the growth of mold. Science has discovered that bleach cannot rid a home of mold, and therefore, we do not use this standard disinfectant. The chemicals we use leave no scent and are entirely safe.

When we remove materials from a home, we use containment methods to keep mold spores from spreading. In the area worked on, air scrubbers remove any dislodge particles and spores from the air. Our job is to contain the mold, remove overgrowth and affected materials, and prevent the spread of microbial contaminants.

Other areas adjacent to your kitchen can also suffer from mold invasion and damage. We check these areas and then advise you of the situation. Within your kitchen, sinks and cabinets are only one area where mold might grow. Under refrigerators is another location, as is the area around dishwashers. We can test for the presence of mold and other microbial activity rather quickly.

SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County wants to help local families preserve their daily routines and the ability to share ongoing traditions. Call us at (763) 712-9712 so we can help you avoid exposing family members to mold damage during the upcoming holiday season.
