SERVPRO Understands Mold Removal Your Home Needs

Certain rooms of your home are more likely to eventually experience mold, including the bathroom. The moisture typically produced in the room from steam and the potential for leaks make materials in the bathroom suitable for hosting mold colonies. When bathroom mold growth occurs, you need remediation specialists to remove these organisms and help prevent the situation from recurring.

The Mold-Damaged Materials

Beginning mold removal in your Knoxville bathroom starts with understanding the materials affected. Several installations in this room can support mold growth, so the solution for remediation and removing the growth varies based on factors like severity, humidity, and accessibility. However, we can effectively remediate mold development on the:

  • Drywall - In most cases, we remove portions of mold-damaged drywall to effectively remove the threat and install a clean, unsullied surface material.
  • Trim - When we remove drywall, we also eliminate the border in front of it, which is also a target for spreading spores. 
  • Flooring - Water-resistant materials in the bathroom are common, but this does not exclude them from potential mold growth on grout joints or on the surface of the vinyl and wood planks. 
  • Vanity- Structural elements of porous materials like particleboard and pressed wood are attractive locations for mold growth. Excessive damage to vanities could require the base cabinet getting replaced. 

Preventing Mold from Returning to the Bathroom

With a general contractor license, we have several steps that can be taken to avoid recurring mold threats in the house. Even with the bathroom being a location likely to experience steam and water damage, steps like mold-inhibiting products, installing appropriate ventilation, and repairing structural vulnerabilities can be vital in avoiding more damage in the future.
