Specialized Equipment Detects Hidden Storm Damage

High winds and rain may have pummeled your home during the last major storm, but you made it through, and everyone is safe. Sometimes storm damage is not apparent as water can be blown under door frames and windowsills, causing hidden water damage.

Through the use of moisture detection and measurement equipment, we can locate, measure, and monitor your home’s moisture levels. Devices such as infrared cameras can quickly pinpoint hidden water in a wall, ceiling, or floor.

Once we have located and extracted the water, we install industrial strength air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the remaining moisture from the walls, ceilings, and floors to prevent warping. We may complete cosmetic or structural repairs if needed, and we will clean and deodorize the area to restore your damage to preloss condition.

Remediating Mold in Gonzales

9/5/2019 (Permalink)

Don’t let mold take over your home or business.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola understands that even a tiny bit of moisture can lead to mold growing in drywall.  You may not be able to see the mold growing but it is causing damage and the sooner you get rid of it, the less damage it can cause to your Gonzales home or business.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ruled that only licensed professionals can clean any surface that has more than 10 square feet of mold. The EPA cannot know how you take care of your home or business, but you will need an inspection if you want to sell.

SERVPRO of North Pensacola is licensed in mold remediation.

Mold remediation means getting rid of the mold spores that become mold as well as fixing the root cause of the dampness.

Mold:

  • Can begin growing on damp surfaces within 24 hours
  • Grows from tiny spores that travel through the air
  • Can destroy materials they grow on
  • Can spread and destroy adjacent materials

SERVPRO of North Pensacola can:

  • Find the source of the moisture
  • Stop the moisture problem
  • Remove the drywall
  • Disinfect certain surfaces
