Mold Damage Can Rapidly Grow in Your Exeter Home's Attic

Mold Remediation Mold Damage Can Rapidly Grow in Your Exeter Home's Attic Your attic could be hiding mold colonies causing problems for you and your family.

SERVPRO Thoroughly Remediates Mold Damage

Microbial growth in any home needs special care when it spreads. Airborne spores can cause health effects in Exeter residents, and the winter months do not slow microbial activity a significant amount. During the colder season, the flu, colds, and allergies can all cause confusion and disagreement regarding the best treatment for individuals suffering runny noses and other undesirable symptoms.

Exeter residents can eliminate one source of the sniffles by hiring professional mold damage experts to remediate an attic overcome by microbes. Although your family may rarely enter the attic, air ducts can carry spores away from the attic and into the living spaces of your home.

Remediation by SERVPRO's IICRC-certified technicians can help reduce the microbial population to reasonable numbers. Part of this involves washing and treating damaged materials and cleaning mold-inundated belongings stored in the attic. Because many attics do not include drywall materials, removing materials does not happen at the same level commonly found for living areas of a home.

Attics can easily harbor hidden mold, so we use devices that can detect higher levels of moisture. These areas easily allow microbial populations at very rapid rates. After locating all mold growth, cleaning the surfaces of microbial activity, and then treating the area, helps prevent any further damage.

Finding the source of water that permitted such growth to occur in the first place lets us stop any additional water from coming into your attic. These sources can include slow drips from ice damming, overhead water lines from new appliance's installation or remodeling of your home, leaks around the chimney, or other sources. Each source never precludes the presence of any others, so we always check thoroughly to ensure we find all possible sources.

SERVPRO of The Seacoast always keeps the equipment and tools ready to combat mold damage and provide excellent mold remediation services to our local community. If the moisture from winter storms overfed mold in your attic, call us at (603) 433-4300. Our services are available 24/7 year-round.
