Mold Growth and Deodorization in Akron, Ohio

8/23/2018 (Permalink)

Mold found in a damp basement in Akron, Ohio.

Mold can be found in many areas of your home or business other than walls and ceilings. Your floors, appliances, carpet, or furniture can provide the food mold needs to grow. The thing all molds need to grow is moisture, so you're most likely to see mold in damp places such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, basements, and crawl spaces.

Dry rot is another sign of potential mold damage. Dry rot occurs when something in the structure becomes wet and stays wet. Since mold grows with moisture and humidity, dry rot could indicate that’s a problem in your building. Seeing dry rot might not mean mold is present, but a SERVPRO of West Akron can come out and figure out the issue.

A smelly odor is a good sign that mold may be present.  Deodorization is perfectly safe for use if anyone notices a smelly odor, but it’s only a temporary fix for comfort. Deodorization techniques do not kill mold, but they can mask a smelly odor. The reason a smelly odor might be such a problem isn’t the lack of help deodorization provides, but the indication there could be mold growth behind walls. Mold growth behind walls is not noticeable right away.  

When anyone sees even the smallest amount mold in their home, it’s time to call SERVPRO of West Akron to handle mold removal, mitigation, and remediation. Call us at 330-867-5723.
