Mold in your Shower?

Shower Handle with small gray spots on wall of shower Mold in the shower can be a sign of a mold infestation and poor ventilation. Contact SERVPRO when you see or smell mold so that we can investigate.

Mold in your shower surround in your Lake City home can be put in two general categories – mold behind the surround and surface mold. Surface mold is unsightly growth and can be more difficult to remove. It is the hidden moisture, however, inside the framing behind your shower which can lead to damage to your structure and expensive repairs. 
Mold growth and mold damage of any type in your Lake City bathroom is bad news. It continues to worsen, doing damage to the structure, plus can cause health effects for you and your family. As soon as you see mold, get a hold of our professionals at SERVPRO so we can help you clean/remove or remediate it. We are a trained and experienced mold remediation company who can handle this problem for you before it spreads anymore. 
Moisture is the key to mold, so our goal is to get the water causing your mold out of your home fast. Our job is to dry the wet structure and contents, so we can then clean the mold up. Even the best cleanup efforts fail if the moisture is not handled. Also, some of our safety work practices stop us from being exposed to the mold and from spreading it to clean areas of your home. If needed, we close off the area while we are working to prevent the mold getting into other rooms. 
SERVPRO staff records conditions such as the extent of the contamination and how much saturation of moisture is present. When the remediation is complete, we may have an independent environmental professional record that the mold has returned to normal conditions. 
Placing negative air machines near where any drywall demolition is done lowers the amount of airborne mold which we are exposed to plus makes removing the mold more efficient. If the mold has grown enough, we may have to remove damaged materials, and we also use damp wiping to clean soiled areas and vacuum excessive mold spores by utilizing HEPA vacuums and filters. 
SERVPRO of Columbia and Suwannee Counties does not waste time getting to your home in Lake City, Live Oak, Jasper, Lake Butler, White Springs and surrounding areas after you reach out to us. Mold continues to grow until the moisture problem is stopped and you remediate.  Call us at (386) 754-0261 if you need or want a professional opinion.
