Mold destroys anything it touches, in addition to irritating eyes, lungs, and nasal passages. Many individuals visit their doctor thinking they have a cold, but discover they are reacting to the fungus in their home.
ServiceMaster By Metzler provides professional mold removal services to homes and businesses in Prospect Heights, IL. Our technicians have the proper training, equipment, and products to find and eliminate all traces of mold growth.
Damages Caused by Mold
Mold growth begins within 48 hours of exposure to excess moisture. It grows quickly due to the microscopic spores in the air; however, home remedies will not always be able to remove them. The spores feed off common sources of cellulose like paint, drywall, and wood, so all they need is a source of moisture to start growing and spread the damage.

Mold Damage Restoration – What to Do
- Call ServiceMaster by Metzler immediately to prevent additional damage.
- Wear protective gear like gloves, masks, and eyewear when in the presence of mold to protect yourself.
- Open doors and windows to the outside to let in fresh air, if the weather is warm enough.
- Dry any visible condensation, but avoid touching the mold.
- Run the HVAC system and a dehumidifier to keep humidity low.
Finding Mold – What NOT to Do:
- Don’t try to remove it yourself, especially with homemade cleaners. They’re not strong enough and can spread the spores.
- Don’t paint over the mold.
- Don’t touch the mold directly. The spores can release, not only spreading themselves further, but also making anyone nearby sick.
