One thing to remember about mold growth is that it will not stop until the conditions allowing it to flourish in a home get eradicated. Only then will remediation efforts work to halt any further mold colony spread or growth. It is vital not to rely on DIY methods and engage a professional company. Signs that you may have a mold issue in your Riverside bathroom include:

  • A musty odor that is persistent
  • Visible signs of mold growth
  • Delamination of tiles or wallpaper
  • Damp conditions that do not diminish due to poor ventilation

Can Tile With Mold Damage Get Reused After Cleaning?

When SERVPRO techs handle mold damage remediation in Riverside properties, their goal is to save as much of the structure as possible. Porous items such as sheetrock and fabrics may require disposal if there is no way to return them to a sanitary standard for reuse. However, if the fabrics and clothing can be washed and disinfected in an Esporta washing system, these can be restored.

Not only do the technicians remove the items that got ruined by the mold infestation, but they also scope the property to discover the reason for it. Frequently seen reasons for this type of issue in a bathroom are unseen leaks behind a wall or poor exhaust ventilation trapping the moist air from showers or baths in the bathroom. In the case of common walls in apartments and condos, the water source should be inspected and fixed.

 SERVPRO of East Riverside at (951)222-2224 is certified to handle mold damage remediation and can determine the reason for the infestation and necessary repairs to help prevent reoccurrences.
