SERVPRO is Ready to Help When Mold Spreads in Palmdale Homes

Many people associate mold with dark, humid homes when in reality, mold can grow unobstructed throughout the country, including Palmdale. This wonderful city in Northern Los Angeles County is used to the arid climate of Antelope Valley and scorching, dry weather several months of the year. Recognized as one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., individuals, and families move into the city daily. An effort to revitalize its downtown has also created communities targeted for senior citizens, all within easy access thanks to its robust transportation network.

Palmdale is the second-largest city in Los Angeles County, and it houses Lake Palmdale, a human-made lake essential to the municipal water infrastructure. It is also adjacent to the famous San Andreas Fault, the culprit behind many earthquakes of varying intensities. Housing is generally more affordable than some of its neighboring communities, including Los Angeles proper, where many of its residents commute to for work.

Mold remediation in Palmdale goes hand in hand with the growth in housing development, just as it would in any other community. Attic mold and basement mold are common whenever a leak springs from a water pipe or ceiling leaks allow water to enter the home. Busy homeowners needing mold inspection, remediation, and removal do well in calling SERVPRO, where our mold specialists can assess the damage before it escalates.

What can SERVPRO do about bathroom mold removal and mold remediation?

Mold can cause health effects, which is why Palmdale residents should address the issue as soon as they discover it. SERVPRO staff is ready to outline a mold remediation plan with specific action items for your home. Those specifications are compliant with environmental recommendations. These guidelines focus on safety, mold removal, and fixing the source of moisture nurturing mold growth. Some of the action steps derived from the plan include-

  • Establishing containment barriers as well as negative air pressure in affected areas
  • Controlling the airflow in HVAC vents to stop mold dissemination through the vents
  • Creating separate rooms or areas where decontamination happens separately to where the mold infestation lives

Naturally, the actions above are only a part of the mold removal process. To remove the contamination, we evaluate each surface. As a general rule, porous materials need to be discarded, while non-porous surfaces can be cleaned with specialized cleaning solutions. HEPA vacuuming also has a place in removing loose mold from your belongings. To complete the mold removal and remediation process, we dry the materials in your home to prevent further growth. Air movers and dehumidifiers are helpful in this process, but we use them after the mold is contained and removed.

SERVPRO of Palmdale North strives to provide the best mold inspection, remediation, and removal services in the community. Place a call to (661) 526-3649 and entrust your home to our certified mold specialists. Mold damage mitigation is only possible with professional assistance. Our goal, like yours, is to leave your home “Like it never even happened.”
