Mold Removal with Damp Insulation in Fort Lauderdale Homes
SERVPRO Provides Mold Removal and Repair in Attics in Fort Lauderdale
Mold spores need moisture or high humidity, warmth, and organic food sources to thrive, often available in Fort Lauderdale homes. Plumbing leaks, roof leaks, and high humidity levels are common in our area, especially in attics, leading to compromised insulation and roof structures.
SERVPRO provides mold removal, inspection, and repair services to Fort Lauderdale residents dealing with mold infestations. The impact of high humidity in the attic leads to conditions that compromise the insulation in your home:
- Insulation inefficiency due to matting and wet materials
- Rockwool insulation may rust when wet due to its metal content
- Insulation may be full of mold spores and colonies
- Structures may be compromised with long-term mold infestations
Vapor barriers are installed to prevent moisture from passing into your home into the interior and vice versa. Vapor barriers also impede the drying of insulation and attic spaces, increasing concerns about further mold growth in these areas.
SERVPRO's IICRC trained techs carefully remove all insulating material exposed to mold and is too wet to dry appropriately with ventilation from high-capacity air movers. Once the insulation has been removed, dry air is blown into the attic to dry all cavities and spaces inside the attic before reinstalling new insulating materials.
We utilize moisture meters to check for high moisture conditions inside walls, cavities, and attics. We may create holes in the walls or ceilings to access any high moisture areas and blow dry air into these areas to dry the cavity and drywall. SERVPRO may remove drywall to access the site and complete the mold cleaning.
Once mold removal is complete and the space dried, SERVPRO finishes all repairs and restoration needed to return your home to its original condition “Like it never even happened.”
