Finding Mold Damage in Your Camper or RV can Ruin Family Plans to Travel Out of Chicago
SERVPRO Helps Secure Your RV from Mold Growth
Springtime finds many residents of Chicago planning the final touches to their summer vacations. Owning an RV or camper helps ensure that your family enjoys a safe and familiar place, especially at night, while away from home.
When preparations for the next upcoming vacation or exciting road trip away from your Chicago home reveal mold damage inside your portable residence, a call to SERVPRO can get it remediated quickly. Holidays are essential ways for families to bond, and also provide much-needed stress-relief from demanding job duties. Both help families stay healthy and productive parts of our society. Having your temporary abode remediated instead of merely using it and hoping for the best also keep mold from hitchhiking into your home when you finish your vacation and starting mold colonies inside your primary residence.
Inside a land yacht or RV, the structures seem similar to the interior of your home, but contains less insulation, little if any drywall, and much more metal, vinyl, and plastic, especially in the decorative trim and wall paneling. These components can also become damaged by microbial colonization, as well as heavily discolored. Paneling and particle board components quickly suffer damage when exposed to moisture and develop swelling and warping in addition to any harm from mold and mildew. We can remove these materials, including any curtains, cushions or covers, paneling doors, and other items for easier replacement, if necessary. Cleaning hard surfaces can reveal stains, which we can often remove with select agents.
Short-term exposure to such infestations can cause health effects, especially when spending the night inside after a day's traveling. Stopping, starting, and driving over bumpy roads can cause spores to remain airborne constantly. SERVPRO can prevent this from happening, and the subsequent problems, including contamination of your home by spores that hijack your family's belongings after your vacation. The use of HEPA filtration systems in a few air scrubbers can generally clarify the air, leaving only to discover and eliminate the mold colonies along with the source of the moisture.
