Few sights are more aggravating to a homeowner than mold growth because mold can be difficult to get rid of and it causes property damage as well as negative health effects. Mold usually occurs as the result of water damage as it thrives when it has a moisture and food source, and it will continue to spread throughout a home until it is completely removed. ServiceMaster by Disaster Associates, Inc. provides mold remediation services to remove mold from homes and buildings in Stoneham, MA and the surrounding communities of Essex and Middlesex counties. We will ensure that all mold growth is removed and we can also repair or replace the surfaces that have been affected.
How Mold Affects You and Your Home
Cases of severe water damage as well as high humidity and leaks create the right conditions for mold to start growing. It latches onto organic materials such as wood and drywall that it uses as a food source and if given enough time, the mold will cause significant damage to these surfaces and contribute to health issues such as allergies and respiratory infections. ServiceMaster technicians have the necessary training, cleaning equipment, and products to completely remove mold growth and solve the moisture issue to prevent the mold from returning. A quick enough reaction can save structural elements, furnishings, and personal content from mold damage as we will restore the affected surfaces and objects once the mold is removed. ServiceMaster by Disaster Associates has also testing capabilities to find hidden mold growth.
