Mold damage can occur at anytime, anywhere. Therefore, a natural disaster is not always required to cause mold damage to your home or business. Unknown leaks or broken pipes can also allow for mold spores to develop. They may then spread through the air, now posing a health hazard for you and your family.
Because of the rapid nature of mold growth in Westerly, RI, ServiceMaster by Mason must be called for mold remediation services as soon as possible. This way you can ensure the safe removal of mold while preventing it from causing further damage in the future.
ServiceMaster Mold Removal Services
Water damage and excessive moisture is one of the main causes of mold growth as it requires little to develop and spreads rapidly. Mold can spread easily through a building, and if not removed, it can cause severe damage to the affected surfaces.
Mold exposure can also cause a large variety of health issues, especially for those with allergies and respiratory infection. However, our technicians are trained to contain and remove the mold growth using advanced cleaning equipment and products. In addition, we use personal protective equipment (PPE) to keep you and our technicians safe.
Mold Cleanup – What to Do
- Call ServiceMaster by Mason right away to prevent the mold from spreading further.
- If it is raining outside, close all windows.
- Eliminate all sources of moisture by airing out the property. Turn on the fans and dehumidifier.
- Dry off the walls that are unaffected by mold to prevent the damage from spreading. Avoid cleaning the affected walls yourself.
- Always wear protective equipment, such as a mask, gloves, and eye wear when dealing with mold.
- Look around and see if you can find additional areas into which the mold has spread; it has the ability to disperse its spores and travel through the air.
Mold Cleaning – What NOT to DO
- Never try to clean the mold yourself. This could only irritate it and cause it to spread further. In addition, if not handled properly, the spores can become inhaled, causing severe illness.
- Do not touch the mold. Many kinds of molds can be toxic to humans.
- Do not put a fan into direct contact with mold.
- Do not cover any surfaces affected by mold.
