If Mold Spreads from Your Kid's Science Project to Your Provo Home, Call SERVPRO for Cleanup and Remediation

Some Species of Mold You Can Find in Your Provo Home

If like many other homeowners you have found mold in your home, you might not know where to begin to get rid of it. The source of moisture that caused it to grow in the first place has to be found and taken care of, and then the mold can be cleaned. It is always best to ask the help of a professional remediation company, as household cleaners are usually not sufficient.
Various species of mold can damage your Provo home, which is another good reason to hire our professional staff at SERVPRO. We can help identify the source of the moisture, the kind of mold, and we have the training to know how to handle each one during the remediation process.
Although found outside many times, Alternaria can also grow in places indoors that are damp, such as underneath sinks that have leaky pipes and in showers. You can also find it in buildings which have flooded or gone through water damage of some kind. These fungi can spread from one section of your home to the next, so should be taken care of quickly. SERVPRO technicians can find mold that may be growing in the wall cavities with infrared camera imaging and moisture meters. Dormant mold spores can proliferate into large colonies and go unnoticed.
Aureobasidium can frequently be found indoors as well and can be found growing on or beneath wallpaper, wooden surfaces, and surfaces which are painted. You can also find it many times on caulking and damp window frames. Who has not seen that blackish smear on window or bathtub seals. These microbials can cause health effects for many people.
Fusarium can grow and spread at lower temperatures and can often be found growing on carpeting and other fabrics which have suffered water damage. It can also cause health effects for certain people, so you should not hesitate to have it taken care of right away.
Penicillium many times is often revealed on water-damaged materials which can include wallpaper, carpeting, furnishings such as mattresses, and insulation. It is a mold type which spreads easily and quickly from one section of your home to the next. These molds were not accidentally discovered in a Petri dish, and have no place in our home environment.
These are just a few types of molds you can find in your home in Orem, Genola, or Payson, but no matter what you come across, get in touch with SERVPRO of Provo right away for help. Once you call us at (801) 226-1363, we do not waste time coming to your home so you can have a safe and clean living environment again for you and your family.
