Rental Property and Mold in Wilton Manors

10/9/2019 (Permalink)

If treated properly, mold does not have to destroy your Wilton Manors home, office, or commercial property.

SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North understands mold and we want to educate our community about the best ways to prevent and treat your Wilton Manors property to avoid costly repairs.

Mold:

  • grows from mold spores
    • spores are too small to see unaided
    • spores can survive harsh environments for many years
  • can grow almost anywhere 
  • needs to have only
    • above-freezing temperatures
    • protein, such as in animal dander, skin cells, wood, plaster, carpet
    • moisture (high humidity is enough)
  • grows rapidly
  • damages property
  • has a bad smell
  • is unsightly

If you have a small amount of mold on a dish, you can clean it. You can even throw it away. However, if you have a large amount of mold, you need licensed mold remediation from an industry professional. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines a “large amount” as 10 square feet or more. If you need a recommendation for a certified mold inspection company from the greater Fort Lauderdale area, we suggest Air-Mazing Mold Testing.

If you suspect your apartment or office building might have mold, you need to have a certified mold inspector out to examine the area. SERVPRO of Ft. Lauderdale North cannot identify what kind of mold you have, but we are licensed in mold remediation and we can repair the damage caused by mold.

When you have a concern about mold damage in your apartment or condominium, speak with your landlord or property manager if you think he/she should hire licensed professionals. Whatever the disaster, remember that SERVPRO is Here to Help.
