Getting Rid Of The Musty Odor Mold Damage Leaves In Your Lakeland Home

Musty Odor Left By Mold Damage

If there is one thing that most people remember about mold growing in their Lakeland home, it is the smell. The worst part of it is, without getting a professional remediation company to help you deal with the problem, this is a smell that takes a long time to go away on its own. While you might look for the silver lining in first smelling it, as it indicated the presence of the mold in your house, it is now something that you want to be eliminated right along with the growing colonies.

SERVPRO has many odor removal techniques to prevent the spread of this pungent aroma and to neutralize it for good, along with its general practices for mold damage remediation to your Lakeland home. Conventional deodorizing from restoration companies entails machines that produce a stronger, fresher odor to overtake the one that you are currently experiencing. Much like spraying an air freshener in other areas of your home at the alarm of a foul odor, it does not take long for this new smell to dissipate and leave you again struggling with the original scent.

The difference is in SERVPRO equipment. Our licensed technicians work with foggers to neutralize the molecules that make up the foul odor. This process is quick and efficient and leaves no lasting secondary smell that leaves you in a similar situation that you tried to avoid. The odor elimination process is one of the final steps to the entire remediation process, as our professionals do not wish to spread active spores around to find new areas to bed and grow.

In fact, until the deodorizing process completes, your air moving systems (your heater or air conditioner for example) within your home is completely shut off. Keeping air from freely being forced through the vents in your home aids significantly in preventing the spread of the spores from the contaminated zone as well as the pungent, musty smell you used to identify its presence.

Mold damage restoration is an involved process that our licensed Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians are well equipped to handle. Call SERVPRO of Bartow / Lakeland Highlands at (863) 510-5962 anytime.
