Mold is never fun to find, especially after seeing that it has spread throughout multiple areas of the home or building. It’s also not easy to remove. In fact, you shouldn’t try to remove it yourself as doing so can “aggravate” it and cause it to spread further, not to mention cause health issues if not done properly.
The technicians of ServiceMaster Restore are available in the O’Fallon, MO area to assist homes and commercial buildings with professional mold remediation. Our technicians use professional products and equipment to remediate the fungus at its source, eliminating all spores to ensure it won’t return in the future.
While it is possible to prevent mold, it can be near impossible with high humidity levels. As it only requires moisture and an organic food source, such as drywall, wood, or carpeting to grow, it can grow almost anywhere. But leaving the cleanup job to a professional is essential when it comes to protecting your health and safety.
ServiceMaster Restore always uses personal protective equipment (PPE) in all mold removal projects. This allows us to handle the job safely while eliminating it at the source. This is done with commercial-grade products specifically designed to eradicate the spores while preventing them from growing back in the future.

- Call ServiceMaster Restore right away for mold remediation.

Mold Damage Cleanup – What NOT to Do:

- Do not try any home remedies to remove the mold yourself.
While mold can be annoying and difficult to remove, it is essential to avoid all contact. This is because the fungus can release spores if “aggravated” and spread even further. Mold must always be handled professionally in order to eliminate all of it. Our technicians will do this as well as remove any lingering odors caused by the fungus.
