Health concerns from mold
Mold colonies can cause allergic reactions and irritations that can lead to everything from itchy eyes and a runny nose to respiratory distress and asthma. Mold is part of our environment so you can never completely remove it, but controlling its growth will minimize these issues and make your home or office safe for occupants.
Head off mold problems in your Youngstown area home by quickly repairing leaking pipes, windows, and cracked basement walls. Use dehumidifiers to keep humidity levels down. Finally, call your local mold removal experts at ServiceMaster to clean up water damaged areas before mold becomes a serious problem.
ServiceMaster Mold Remediation Services
Because mold spores exist naturally in the environment, it’s important to control indoor moisture to prevent its growth. Our services begin with identifying your problem. We ensure the moisture problem is corrected, then provide thorough containment and cleaning so your home or office is left mold free.
- Mold Assessment – A visual inspection of your property, including hidden areas, tells us the extent of your problem. We lift carpets, check behind paneling and wallpaper, and examine ducts and ventilation systems to determine the level of remediation needed to alleviate your problem.
- Mold Containment – Once contaminated areas are identified, we isolate those areas with physical barriers as well as air filtration systems to prevent mold spores from spreading further. Your HVAC system will be shut down while cleanup is in process.
- Mold Removal – We treat with antifungals and antimicrobials to remove mold growth from surfaces and to prevent additional growth of colonies. Depending on the extent of contamination, carpeting, padding, drywall and subfloors may need to be replaced. We remove as little as possible to gain access to and clean the area.
- Content Cleaning and Restoration – Our mold remediation service includes cleaning and restoration of all furniture and household items that can be saved. Our team also provides repairs and construction as needed for drywall, flooring and other building materials.
