Mold is particularly troublesome because it can grow almost anywhere and quickly spread after a water loss or damage has occurred. Once mold begins to grow on your property, it is extremely difficult to remove without professional assistance. To make matters worse, it can spread with ease, and pose a risk to your building, belongings, and health.
At ServiceMaster by Mason, we offer mold inspection, cleanup and remediation services to property owners in Manchester, CT and the surrounding areas, to address these problems.
The Dangers of Mold Growth
While mold can grow in a variety of situations, it occurs more frequently when some level of water damage is present on your property. This is because mold thrives on the excess moisture. As the mold grows and spreads, it can eat away at various surfaces and building materials to cause structural damage to your property and damage to your belongings. It can also incite severe asthma and allergic reactions, respiratory infections, illness and other affects to those who are exposed.
At ServiceMaster by Mason, we contain all visible mold growth on your property to prevent it from spreading to unaffected areas, while we work. We then remove it while making use of personal protective equipment (PPE). This adds an extra layer of safety for you and our experienced technicians.
