Moisture and Mold Growth in Your Palmetto Bay Condo

Prevention with Relative Humidity Targets to Inhibit Mold Growth

The very environmental conditions that attracted you and influenced your decision to make your home south of Miami can backfire and put your house and possibly your family's health at risk. Warm and humid conditions are a natural occurrence on the southeast Florida coast, often accelerating the growth of a wide range of molds, mildews and other microbial infestations within the walls of your house. Robust microbial infestations can be contained and removed safely by our trained staff. SERVPRO then can work with you to ensure that the moisture that is feeding the fungus is isolated and eliminated or significantly reduced. Microbial outbreaks are always possible where there are warmth and water, but our deep understanding of the problems of mold damage informs our efforts to limit future overgrowth once we investigate the specifics of your situation.

It is not uncommon for the ambient humidity within a dwelling to provide nourishment for the microbial growth that can cause mold damage for Palmetto Bay homeowners. Our technicians know how to use sensitive instruments to measure the overly humid conditions that may be contributing to a mold outbreak. Once excessive humidity is identified through the use of a thermal hygrometer or similar device as a culprit in microbial growth, we can take steps to help you to reduce the level of moisture in the air to curtail mold damage in the future. In consultation with our moisture reduction experts, you can take control of high humidity (RH) and limit the possibility of continued mold growth.

Your relationship with SERVPRO can make a real difference in the comfort and safety of your home. Although we are always poised to be Faster To Any Size Disaster, we prefer to help you avoid a crisis in the first place. Advising homeowners on how to control the humidity of their homes is one way to make a real difference in the indoor air quality that affects biohazard presence such as molds and mildews. We can evaluate the efficiency of dehumidifiers and air conditioners, urging upgrades or repairs in these systems to lower humidity inside your home. Temperature and moisture are crucial to arriving at a good safe level to inhibit the growth of fungi. Let us take a peek at your home's potential for microbial growth. We can help you make changes that will reduce relative humidity, actually reducing the possibility that mold damage will continue to be a problem.
