Dealing with Mold Damage Effectively is Critical

Most residents use professional mold remediation services to reduce the impact of returning mold and address the underlying causes. Like any living organism, Mold requires a food source, water supply, and warmth to grow. The digestive enzymes produced by molds to break down a food supply can cause lasting damage to your home. This damage is noticeable in the form of dry rot or deteriorating drywall. We can help with:

  • Mold removal 
  • Attic mold removal
  • Black mold damage repairs

The goal of mold remediation in Fort Pierce is to tailor standardized techniques to the unique circumstances of your home. In the case of attic mold, technicians may adapt equipment like dehumidifiers and negative air pressure machines to suit the restricted space. SERVPRO technicians are experienced in dealing with the differing nature of residential properties and can find a solution to suit your home. 

  • Insulation typically needs to be removed and replaced once a mold infestation occurs. The replacement materials are inexpensive.

Our Team has Multiple Moisture Removal Devices to Help Fort Pierce North Properties

Because of how severely moisture can spread through porous materials and open areas of a house, appropriate dehumidification tools can be vital in restoring the damage. Arriving with an assortment of mitigation equipment can help restoration work to begin as soon as possible.

What Types of Dehumidifiers Get Used? 

Several dehumidification units can be used when addressing water damage in Fort Pierce North homes or businesses. Because the conditions of these structures can change so dramatically from one to the next, having multiple types of moisture removal options can help. We use:

  • LGR – Low Grain Refrigerant
  • Desiccants
  • Conventional Refrigerants

Is a Low Grain Refrigerant (LGR) Dehumidifier Best for Warm Conditions?

The LGR units for dehumidification are among the most heavily used, especially in coastal Florida. Because of how warm and humid conditions are throughout the year, these machines are specifically constructed to reach a lower grains per pound (gpp) level than traditional dehumidifiers or standard refrigerant units. Instead of 45-55 gpp, LGR dehumidifiers can reach 35 gpp for even drier conditions.

Choosing the right equipment can often make the difference in how efficiently and completely homes get restored after flooding and water damage. Our SERVPRO of Fort Piece NE team can help with fast responses and powerful equipment when you call (772) 362-7060.
