SERVPRO Offers Mold Damage Restoration Services in Canoga Park

When a homeowner suffers from a small water spill or leak, they do what they can to clean up the mess and leave it at that. But, issues can arise whenever any amount of moisture gets inside your dwelling in places other than where it is supposed to be. Mold only needs an organic material for food, moisture, time, and the correct temperature to form and survive. If you have a water spill or a small, slow leak, fungi can form in a place you may not see.

Our SERVPRO technicians often notice while working to restore mold damage in Canoga Park that a fungus forms in dark, tight areas that people rarely enter, like attics, utility closets, and crawl spaces. These rooms have little light, and humidity is usually high, making them prime locations for fungal formations. But, if these issues are not treated right away by a professional restoration company, the mold could spread to other places inside your home.

Once mold forms, it grows structures called hyphae in all three directions. These hyphae then release seed-like spores that travel in the air inside your home until they find another place with an organic food source and moisture to grow. Since mold can cause health effects, it is always wise to mitigate mold when it forms inside your building before it spreads to other areas of your structure.
