Mold Tips from SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress
One of the many jobs that we provide our customers here at SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress is mold mitigation and remediation. Molds are part of our natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter, but indoors, mold growth should be avoided. This is the info that everyone should know if you live somewhere like south Texas. It is impossible to get rid of all mold and mold spores indoors; some mold spores will be found floating through the air and in-house dust. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling moisture indoors. Which is how we fight mold here at SERVPRO of Katy/Cypress, with our knowledgeable representatives and top-notch equipment.

Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely. Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely. Absorbent or porous materials, such as ceiling tiles and carpet, may have to be removed and discarded. Mold can grow on or fill in the empty spaces and crevices of porous materials, so the mold may be difficult or impossible to remove completely.
