A St. Petersburg Florida homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold problem they found in their closet. The St. Petersburg homeowner noticed a musty smell in a closet behind a bathroom. With the musty smell, they figured that there was a problem with moisture or humidity in the closet. The St. Petersburg homeowner decided to buy a bucket of damp rid to help absorb some of the moisture. If you have to buy damp rid to place anywhere inside of your home, there is a humidity or moisture problem. Damp rid is designed for garages, basements, etc. Damp rid should not have to be used inside of Florida homes. As it turns out, this particular issue was being caused by a small water leak on the tub drain. Leak detection can be a frustrating process and must be performed by a team of professionals. Once a water leak occurs, it can lead to water damage and mold growth. As you can see in the pictures below, mold growth formed on the back of the closet walls adjacent to where the leak occurred.

A Brandon homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold removal project. The Brandon homeowner had a sewage backup occur when they were away from their property. The sewage backup caused the walls 2 feet up from the floor to become saturated with water. When the Brandon homeowner arrived to find the mess, they simply cleaned all the sewage off of the floor. When walls and studs become saturated with moisture, this provides a prime breeding ground for mold and black mold growth. As you can see in the pictures below, we had to remove the drywall and clean all of the wall studs in order to ensure the mold was completely removed from this project. Once black mold begins to grow, it will grow inside of walls where you cannot see it. With our infrared water inspection equipment we are able to see through walls where moisture hides. In Brandon, hidden moisture usually means hidden mold.
A Tampa homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold removal project. The Tampa homeowner was out of town for a few months dealing with a family emergency.

Over time, the AC unit stopped working and the humidity inside the home began to rise. Once mold has moisture and building materials it will begin to grow and thrive. As you can see in the pictures below, the black mold grew on walls, floors, ceilings and even on the children’s toys. This will be an extensive black mold removal project. Black mold is not only ugly, it can also cause adverse health effects in humans and pets.

A condo unit owner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to black mold found after an AC leak. HVAC systems remove moisture from the air when warm air passes over cold coils. This condensate drips into a pan and then is routed outside of the property. The drain line that takes the condensate water out of this property was clogged and the pan filled up. Once the pan fills and the water begins to run over the pan and into walls, the walls become damp or saturated. The AC drain line clog was repaired but the water damage to the area around the HVAC condenser was not dried properly. If water from leaking pipes or roofs is not dried properly it can lead to water damage and possible mold growth. Water damage is much easier to correct than mold growth. Once mold growth starts inside of walls it is very difficult to locate and remove or remediate. We can find hidden leaks and water damage with our infrared water inspection equipment.
A Tampa Bay homeowner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to mold found in their bathroom. This bathroom was located on a 2nd story of a home by an elderly lady.

With the humidity in this bathroom rising, a perfect environment for mold growth was formed. Mold began to grow on the walls, ceilings and shower area. As you can see in the pictures below, a large amount of mold needed to be removed in this bathroom. It is very important to control humidity levels in indoor environments in order to control possible mold growth. If you have a water damage issue, or a water leak issue, it’s very important to correct it as soon as possible in order to prevent possible mold growth.
