How Mold Growth Occurs In Your Oakland Home

While you work to keep your Oakland home maintained and handled threats that it might face on your own as best as you can, there are some circumstances where this could do more harm than good. With microbial and mold growth in your home, the problem can spread quickly until it is out of control. The only solution for facing this organism spreading through the materials of your house is to trust our certified applied microbial remediation technicians to remove it.

There is much to learn about mold damages and the effects it can have on your Oakland home, but the most troublesome factor is how little the average homeowner understands about how mold spores colonize. Understanding the conditions required for colonization and the damage that a spreading colony can do to your home can help you to appreciate the immediate need for mold remediation from our SERVPRO specialists.

Against common beliefs, mold does not take much to grow in your home. The primary thing that mold spores need to seat and thrive is a moist environment. When you consider areas like the crawlspace of your home or areas prone to dampness like kitchens and bathrooms, these conditions can get met without much effort.

Once mold spores seat into surfaces, they begin to expand and grow, consuming the organic building materials and contents of your home that they used to colonize. As the organism expands, these materials weaken and degrade to the point of structural failure. Our SERVPRO technicians work to preserve these materials when possible, choosing options like soda blasting and sanding to remove active colonies from construction materials affected by mold growth.

While you might not fully understand how mold can begin in your house, you should at least know how you can stop it from spreading and getting out of control throughout multiple areas of your residence. Trust in the rapid response of our emergency SERVPRO of San Leandro team. We can help you to isolate the colony and work to remove it quickly, limiting its spread throughout your home. Give our technicians a call anytime at (510) 352-2480.
