Mold Damage on Walls in Rocky Point Homes

Mold Remediation Mold Damage on Walls in Rocky Point Homes Bulging, discoloration, and cracked or peeling paint are all signs of mold damage on interior walls.

Rely on SERVPRO for Expert Mold Remediation

Mold growth on Rocky Point walls occurs mostly due to water leaks, condensation, and high humidity. Condensation occurs when water vapor meets a cold surface and transforms into liquid form. Things like steam from hot water or drying wet clothes inside the house increase the humidity in your home. Failing to address high humidity levels in the house can eventually lead to mold growth on the walls.

Your best bet against mold damage in Rocky Point is contacting a reputable restoration company like SERVPRO. Our technicians are highly trained and highly experienced in mold remediation, and we always follow IICRC guidelines to ensure a thorough and complete restoration process. Our equipment and products are designed to return your property to preloss conditions as quickly as possible, "Like it never even happened."

Mold on drywall is a serious concern. Since drywall is high in cellulose, it is extremely vulnerable to mold damage. In most cases, SERVPRO technicians often resort to cutting out and disposing of any drywall that has mold growth on it, as there is no practical way to completely remove it from the material.

Mold usually grows unnoticeably behind walls, where there is plenty of humid, moist air. Mold growth can also occur behind wallpaper, as wallpaper glue holds organic debris that becomes a source of food for the mold. SERVPRO technicians use effective inspection methods to detect mold damage behind walls.

Signs of mold on walls include bulging, discoloration, and cracked or peeling paint. If you notice these signs on your wall, a closer inspection may reveal the development of mold growth. These signs could also be an indication of mold growing in the wall cavities. Small patches of mold on your walls may represent a larger mold colony that is slowly growing on the other side. You can easily identify the presence of mold through its unique musty odor or sudden allergic reactions.

Apart from serving as the last line of defense against external elements, your walls provide a space for hanging your favorite items and photographs. If you notice signs of mold, SERVPRO of West Tampa can come in and begin the mold damage control process. Call us today at (813) 855-0888.
