Mold, the Unwanted Fungus for Your Home in South Lakeland

Many Hidden Dangers, Including Mold Proliferation, Can Be Resolved by SERVPRO

A clean environment, especially for children, is crucial for well-being. However, lead paint in older homes can pose problems to children when ingested. This can lead to problems with their learning and cognitive development. The problem can become so severe that the federal government has implemented not only legislation but also protocols in dealing with lead in the home. While lead is perceived as very hazardous, and it is, this may not be a factor in most homes unless the lead paint is peeling or chipping away in flakes. When mold damage is present on a wall that has been painted with lead paint in the past, even if it is covered by non-lead paint, removing the damaged areas can cause lead dust to become airborne.
Very few homes that are painted with lead paint , but mold damage in South Lakeland can affect any home, including those older ones that may have lead paint in them. At SERVPRO, we've included RRRP (Lead-Based Paint Activities and Renovation) as one of our certifications. This provides us with the skills needed to protect you and your family against dangers that may not have existed before remediation began. Our goal may be to make it “Like it never even happened,” but our intention is for your overall health and safety.
When we remove mold damage and also clean the area so mold cannot return as readily, we will also ensure that any sources of moisture are cut off. Mold spores are continually floating in each and every home, as it is a naturally occurring microorganism, and is found outdoors at all times of the year. Control of the indoor environment is the most important aspect of managing mold's growth in your home. We can teach you and your family what activities may have lead to mold growth and damage in your home so that it is easier to prevent in the future.
When you find that your home has mold damage, call SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland Highlands at (863) 510-5962. We are available 24/7 to answer your call and begin work to eliminate mold damage in your home, protecting your family and your investment.
