The pictures below are from a home in Clearwater, Florida. The Clearwater residents decided to remodel their kitchen as it was done originally in the 1970’s. They were very excited about the project until their remodeling contractor removed the kitchen cabinets and found quite a bit of mold growth. The contractor was very smart in that he handled the mold the right way. As you can see in the pictures below, plastic was placed over the mold and taped into place. If you see mold or mold growth in your Clearwater home, the best thing you can do is to NOT disturb it. Mold has tiny spores that can easily become airborne and possibly effect other areas of your property. In this particular case, the contractor contained the mold damage and then called in a professional company to properly get rid of the mold before proceeding with the remodel. Avoid costly problems down the road and be sure not to disturb any mold in your property if you find it. The best thing you can do is call a professional to properly take care of the mold removal process.

While performing a plumbing repair in beautiful Treasure Island, Florida the St. Petersburg plumber found mold growth inside of a wall and ceiling. A very small leak on a copper water line caused black mold growth in this Treasure Island home. The leak went undetected in a wall behind some wall paper. The homeowner had no clue there was a water or mold problem until the wallpaper began to discolor. It took weeks for the wallpaper to discolor which is why the black mold growth was able to grow as much as it did. Black mold grows in areas with high moisture. A plumbing pipe leak in a wall is a great place for mold to begin to grow especially if undetected or undisturbed for any length of time. Once the St. Petersburg plumber finished the repair, he put plastic over the holes to ensure the mold would not spread further into this Treasure Island home.

Mold Found Under Seminole Cabinet. This Seminole Florida home experienced a problem with a small water leak which led to sever mold damage underneath a cabinet. Most Seminole Florida cabinets are made of particle board which acts like a sponge for water leaks. The water soaked into the cabinet which provided a great breeding ground for a mold infestation. With the high humidity here in Florida, once mold starts to grow in a Seminole or St. Petersburg property it can lead to severe problems. This cabinet must be placed under a tight mold containment so that when the mold is removed, it is not spread throughout the rest of the home. If you see mold inside of your property, call a professional in order to have it properly removed. Mold in Seminole can cause adverse health effects to Pinellas County residents if not treated properly.
