We care about you.
Why use Aqua-Pro Restoration rather than do it yourself removal? We have the equipment to detect where the mildew is present. Finding the source of the moisture that helps it grow is important in defending against mold damage. Does it come from a leaky roof, your windows, or maybe the way the landscape pushes the water against your house? Determining the source and having a professional fix the leak source is important to reduce possible re-growth in the property.
Solving the problem can vary from caulking a window to sealing a crawl space. Once the problem is solved we proceed to kill the mildew by cutting out sheetrock, taking out the insulation, or a number of other ways as each situation is different. After killing the mold we make sure we monitor it and humidify the area to prevent it from coming back. The EPA has put together a brief guild to mold, moisture, and your home Guide
Controlling moisture is the key to stopping indoor mold growth because all molds require water to grow.
Moisture can come from:
- Flooding from the outside (stormwater, overflowing lakes, streams, storm surge, etc.).
- Flooding from the indoor (overflow from sinks, tubs, toilets, air conditioner drain pans or sewage systems).
- Condensation (caused by indoor humidity that is too high or surfaces that are too cold).
- Water leaks from outside the building (roof, walls, floors).
- Indoor plumbing leaks or broken water pipes.
- Outdoor sprinkler spray hitting the walls or indoor fire sprinklers.
- Poor venting of kitchen and bathroom moisture (steam from shower or cooking).
- Humidifier use.
- Drying wet clothes indoors, or not venting clothes dryers outdoors (including electric dryers).
- Houseplants (overwatering, etc.).
- Moisture from our bodies (sweat, wet hair on pillows, breath).
- Warm, moist air from outdoors.
- Liquid Spills.
Florida has serious problems with mold issues. Living in a state with humid, wet conditions can cause many problems if you don’t immediately act upon seeing water or moisture problems. If you have questions call our office and we will come and give you a free inspection.
