Mold Damage Experts In Columbus Discuss Problems With Shower Ceilings

Fungi can develop inside your Columbus apartment anywhere there is an organic substance and excessive moisture. For example, a small water leak that goes unnoticed in your bathroom can cause mold damage to take place inside your bathroom sink's vanity. Bathrooms are a prime location for fungal growth partly because it is a room inside your dwelling that contains several water sources. These rooms are also tight and confined spaces which makes it easier for humidity levels to rise. A fungus only needs an organic substance, moisture, the correct temperature, and the right amount of time to cause excessive mold damage to your building.

One common place for fungal development is your bathroom especially your bath/shower area. Seeing as how there is a lot of moisture in this region, any extra moisture added can cause mold damage inside your Columbus restroom. Most showers are made out of drywall such as organic materials like paper. Once elevated moisture levels or an unanticipated water leak strikes the region, it is possible that microbes can activate and form fungi. Once a fungus forms it starts growing structures called hyphae which grow in all three directions.

These hyphae can then spread microbes that work as seeds to form fungi in other wet areas. Calling in a professional remediation company like SERVPRO can help you from having problems in other areas of your home. Any time we work on restoring fungal issues, take extra measures to keep spores from getting into your building's airflow and negatively affecting your air quality system.

To accomplish such, our SERVPRO technicians build a containment chamber around the area that is contaminated by mold. When dealing with problems with your shower ceiling, we can contain the entire bathroom with a plastic barrier. Once the containment gets established, we attach an air scrubber that sucks hazardous particles through a HEPA filter that traps even microscopic particles. If you ever notice a black mold forming on the surface of your shower's ceiling, it is smart to call SERVPRO of South Columbus at (614) 863-1392 24/7.
