Moisture Threatens Your Home’s Structure
Excess moisture and humidity are among the biggest threats to the structure of your home. Moisture weakens the strength of wood, promotes the growth of mold and fungi, and attracts pests. In the Jacksonville metro and along the First Coast, water damage from hurricanes and our typical tropical-style weather contribute to mold and fungus problems and high humidity that can damage your home and attract unwanted pests.
Fungus & Mold Growth
Fungi and mold can occur in your home from a variety of causes, including:
- Leaks inside or outside the home
- Everyday activities including bathing, cooking – and even breathing!
- Condensation caused by your central air or window air conditioning units
- Dryer vents that route air into basements, attics, or crawl spaces
Lindsey Pest Services often discovers fungi growing in our clients’ crawlspaces as wood is damaged from moisture. Wood-decaying fungi literally strip the nutrients from the wood and tears it apart, creating ideal conditions and an invitation to many pests to take up residence in your home.
Eliminate And Prevent Fungus & Mold
Our technicians rely on the Bora-Care® Mold-Care solution for killing and preventing all types of mold and creating a buffer zone in your home that will delay the harmful effects of major flood damage. Homes without proper ventilation and insulation will experience fungi and mold growth in the moisture that condenses in and on walls, but when we spray our application to the wood in your home, it acts as a preventative treatment against mold and future damages. Not only will you maintain the sound structure of your home, but you’ll improve air quality and reduce your risks for attracting insects as well.
Who Benefits From Fungus & Mold Treatments?
We regularly perform fungus and mold treatments to homes and businesses throughout the Jacksonville, Florida area.
As a building is constructed, the wood is accessible to the weather and elements. Applying mold and fungus treatments to new construction is the ideal time to prevent future problems from mold, termites, wood-destroying insects, and fungi. The treatments will soak into the wood and provide years of protection.
Buildings With Water Damage
If your home has fallen victim to hurricane or other storm damage, leaking pipes, or flood waters, our mold and fungus treatment can kill existing mold and stop the wood decaying process. Once the treatment is applied, the wood is protected against future flooding and water damage.
