Mold Remediation Dripping Drains and 100-Year Floods Equally Capable of Causing Mold Damage in Knoxville Finding mold in your home can leave you quite upset and frustrated. Contact SERVPRO to determine the cause of the infestation and to remediate.

Our SERVPRO Technicians are Equipped With Updated Moisture Detection Tools to Find the Cause of the Mold Infestation in Your Home

Knoxville homeowners whose properties sustain one type of damage from a disaster sometimes find themselves faced with other crises soon after. This happens because one disaster often paves the way for another to take its place. Just like damage from water often follows after a fire, microbes gain a long-lasting foothold on homes that have suffered intrusive water in the recent past. Mold can grow easily from condensation on an un-insulated water line or trace moisture left behind by a flood.
 
Because water vapor can easily escape and hide in your home, mold damage in Knoxville can quickly take root. Microbes do not need very much moisture to thrive and can reach into materials like drywall and stucco to obtain any moisture available. This 'mining' for water steadily eats away at these materials and causes them to crumble at the gentlest touch.
 
The technicians at SERVPRO know how to use the latest types of technology to locate moisture in materials before it can damage anything. This same technology keeps mold damage from spreading. When we remediate an area in your home, we check elsewhere that moisture might hide. We also examine the amount of water vapor in the air. Higher than normal levels can assist microbes and increase the possibility of future mold damage.
 
Our use of forced air, ventilation, heat, dehumidifiers, and desiccant machines help extract all of the moisture from hidden areas. Moisture always moves from moister areas to drier ones. SERVPRO technicians use this natural characteristic to efficiently remove all latent moisture from your home's interior, stopping any future old damage. We use our readings from infrared thermography devices to help us locate the sources of the moisture so we can eliminate it from happening again.
