ServiceMaster Cleaning & Restoration
The presence of mold in a home or building is a serious issue because it can lead to significant property damage and negative health effects. Mold typically appears in areas with excessive moisture because it needs moisture to survive and it feeds on the affected building materials, which is why it can cause such extensive damage. If mold is not found and addressed right away, it will spread to new areas and continue to cause further damage to the affected surfaces. The risk of related health effects will also increase the longer you are exposed to mold.

Our technicians are properly trained and equipped to locate all mold growth and safely remove it without allowing it to spread to new areas. Once we remove the mold, we will clean up and restore the affected materials, or remove them if they are too heavily damaged.
Why you may need mold removal services
Mold growth can appear indoors any time the spores find ideal conditions. Moisture is the biggest trigger of mold growth as it generally appears in moist areas like the kitchen, bathroom, attic, crawlspace, and basement, and it is a common occurrence after water damage. It only takes 24-48 hours for mold to appear in moist areas, and it takes hold on surfaces that contain its main food source, cellulose, such as on drywall and wood. As the mold devours these surfaces, it can cause staining and weakening of the materials, and eventually leading to structural damage.
While extensive property damage may result from mold growth, the potential health issues should be a bigger concern. Exposure to mold can trigger a range of allergic reactions, including coughing, nasal congestions, headaches, breathing issues, itchy eyes and throat, and skin irritation. If one is exposed to mold for too long, more serious conditions, like respiratory infections and asthma, may develop.
The best way to protect your property from mold is to prevent it in the first place. Mold thrives in moist, poorly ventilated areas so make sure to address moisture and water damage issues immediately and keep vulnerable areas of your home well ventilated. Any excess water or moisture needs to be cleaned up within 24 hours to reduce the risk of mold growth. You should also check highly vulnerable areas such as attics, basements, bathrooms, and the kitchen regularly to make sure there is no mold.
If you do find mold growth on your property, you need to call a mold removal professional right away. Removing mold without the right equipment or understanding of the mold removal process is dangerous. Improper cleaning methods can cause the mold to release it spores and spread new growth and it puts your health at risk.
