Finding Mold Damage Behind Furniture In Your Minneapolis Dwelling

Finding Mold Damage

Many Minneapolis residents enjoy the different seasons our locale experiences. One drawback, though, centers on the drastic fluctuations in temperature and humidity that often occur. This can happen at any time, during seasons, or in between them as they change from one to the next.

Minneapolis homes often contain substantial amounts of insulation, but if this fails in any way, mold damage can form in some regions of your home. One such location involves the walls behind larger pieces of furniture. A lack of sunlight, or even that from your interior lighting, can encourage mold to grow whenever moisture condenses in the area between the back of the furniture and the wall.

In addition to this sheltered area and any moisture hidden there, dust also collects in these locations. When you move your furniture away from the wall, finding a colorful amount of mold can create panic in many homeowners. SERVPRO's Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) can help you determine how far the mold spread within your home, and stop it from spreading more.

We prevent future mold growth by installing an easily maintained dehumidifier in cases where fluctuations in the humidity content of the home vary considerably or contain wet areas that never dry out. When a leaking pipe, either with clean drinking water or from a drain, causes humidity woes, SERVPRO crew members quickly repair such problems, so this source of invasive water no longer factors into the humidity situation in your home.

Remediating mold, so it no longer affects your home, or your family provides a fresh start. Preventing mold damage can help save thousands of dollars in the future. Mold growth behind furniture can give you a warning that mold damage can soon become a reality in other locations within your home, and save your money when you heed that warning.

SERVPRO of Coon Rapids / Central Anoka County wants to help your family when mold damage threatens your home. You can reach us at (763) 712-9712 whenever you find mold damage or large areas colonized by microbes. We can make things clean and safe again for you, “Like it never even happened.”
