Cleaning and clearing mold damage are vital to recovering Northeast St. Petersburg properties.

Restoring your home after mold gets discovered means determining where these organisms have spread and the materials impacted by active spores. Our experienced remediation team quickly inspects the property and chooses the best approach to help sensitive materials like drywall from allowing more extensive damage.

Moist Conditions in the Living Space

One of the best reasons drywall becomes damaged when mold removal in Northeast St Petersburg homes is necessary is the frequency of use. Gypsum board is among the most common building elements in modern homes, so these wall surface materials are exposed to a range of water damage incidents and concerns, including:

  • Leaks
  • Post-flood damage
  • Humidity
  • Mismanaged water damage

Organic Materials Feed Mold Organisms

The attractiveness of drywall to mold organisms is the organic composition of these materials. Organic matter is a food source for mold organisms, so these colonies thrive and continue to spread when provided adequate sustenance.

Remediation Solutions for Damaged Drywall

Removing mold from drywall surfaces can be more challenging than many property owners believe. Because of how quickly sheetrock can become degraded and deteriorated from hosting mold organisms, it is often preferable to remove the installed elements altogether and replace them with new drywall materials instead. Light spotting can sometimes be addressed with surface treatments and antimicrobial mold inhibitors.

With its popularity of use and its sensitivity to hosting mold colonies, sheetrock can be a common target for microbial growth. With the urgency of managing mold situations in area homes and businesses, our remediation team works quickly to provide suitable solutions to get your property back to preloss conditions.
