The Challenges of HVAC Mold Damage in Alpharetta

Mold Remediation The Challenges of HVAC Mold Damage in Alpharetta When mold forms in your HVAC system it is important to contact a professional mold remediation specialist like SERVPRO.

SERVPRO is Highly Trained in Mold Damage Remediation

Mold damage in an Alpharetta home's HVAC system can be tough to remove, requiring specialized training and knowledge in both restorative processes and proper HVAC care. SERVPRO is one of only a handful of companies possessing the expertise to handle both at the same time, but even for our most experienced technicians, mold in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems is no easy obstacle to overcome. Here are a few things that can complicate restoration procedures even with ideal tools, training, and circumstances.

Water Leaks

All varieties of mold damage in Alpharetta homes require water to be sustained, and while some species can subsist off of unusually humid conditions, most infestations accompany a water leak of some kind. Finding these leaks can be difficult, as both water lines in your home and HVAC systems run through unoccupied, dark, and out-of-sight areas of your home. SERVPRO representatives carry advanced thermohygrometer devices to spot patches of water behind walls and in unusual locations, allowing us to figure out the source of the mold's growth and put a stop to it. Only once we stop the flow of water can we begin to conduct restorative procedures.

Tight Spaces

Depending on the size, layout, and age of your home, your HVAC system may be very difficult to access and navigate. However, we prepare for this eventuality by training our technicians to handle all prevalent types of ventilation systems and should be able to take out colonies growing even in the farthest reaches of your home.

Spread-Out Spores

Many cases of mold damage in HVAC systems become much more substantial problems over time as air circulation allows spores to spread around not only the ventilation system but also throughout the entire home. No matter where you find a colony growing in your home, your first step should be to turn off any HVAC functions running at the time to prevent further spreading. While we cannot reverse any existing spread, our preventative measures and quarantines help to prevent additional problems from appearing throughout the home.

SERVPRO of North Fulton County is always available to take on a mold remediation project in your home. Call us as soon as you identify a problem at (770) 992-2777.
