No one can predict when mold will grow, but once it affects an area it can spread quickly, turning your home or business into a hazardous environment for those with allergies and health conditions. Due to floods and leaks from heavy rains, your property is the perfect breeding ground for mold. Often, it may grow in hidden areas that include behind walls, attics, and basements.
However, ServiceMaster by Mason is trained to use advanced technology to identify the areas in which the mold is spreading. It is then disinfected at the source to prevent it from returning in the future.
While flooding and water damages are the most common causes of mold, a small, unknown leak can be enough to cause detrimental damage to your property and furnishings. While mold releases spores into the air that spread to other areas of a home, this can cause a variety of health issues for you and your family. This can be especially dangerous to those with allergies and respiratory issues.
However, our technicians are especially trained to use advanced cleaning equipment and products. In addition, personal protective equipment (PPE) is used to keep both you and our technicians safe throughout the remediation process.
Our mold remediation services provide the following:
- Mold contamination assessment
- Environmental engineering controls
- Restorative drying
- Mold remediation
- Pack-out and storage
Mold Testing and Evaluation
Although mold may only affect a small area in its beginning stages of development, it will grow quickly while dispersing its spores to affect additional hidden areas throughout the home. This is why it is vital to locate hidden mold and test the air for the level of contamination.
We are able to identify which areas need remediation as well as those that require special attention. We offer a thorough visual inspection of mold including surfaces and content, floors, and even behind walls and ceilings. If air quality readings are necessary, we can recommend an experienced third party provider.
Mold Cleaning – What to Do
- Call ServiceMaster by Mason right away for mold remediation.
- Close all windows and doors if outside humidity/moisture levels are high.
- Dry out the walls containing condensation or moisture in order to reduce the risk of spreading the mold.
- Always wear protective equipment, such as eye wear, gloves, and glasses when dealing with the mold.
- Inspect other areas for mold, including: crawlspaces, the attic, the ceiling, the shower stall, and other dark, moist areas.
Mold Cleanup – What NOT to Do
- Never use home cleaning products, such as vinegar, chlorine, or bleach to clean the mold. Using these chemicals will only irritate it and cause it to retreat further within the affected surface.
- Avoid any direct contact with the mold.
- Do not place a blowing fan in front of the mold to air it out.
- Do not cover the mold with sheets, paint, or caulk.
