Mold Remediation Services Mentor, Ohio
Mold can never be completely removed from your environment. It exists indoors and out, in urban, suburban and rural environments, and in old buildings and new homes. But while we know we can live with it, controlling its growth in the places in which we live and work is crucial.
Mold and its ability to grow in moist environments can be a real health hazard to humans, especially those with respiratory issues and who are especially sensitive to mold spores. Exposure to mold can cause everything from a runny nose and itchy eyes to severe respiratory problems and asthma attacks.
This is why the mold removal experts at ServiceMaster are readily available if you suspect a mold problem in your Mentor, Ohio, home or business.
You can usually smell mold before you can see it. In fact, many mold problems remain out of sight in attics or crawl spaces, and even behind walls. Meanwhile, it can cause significant damage to your property, destroying walls, carpeting, wood flooring and subflooring, and even upholstery and curtains. Damp walls in your basement, a leaky roof, or failing pipes anywhere in your home can provide enough moisture for mold spores to quickly grow into colonies, releasing irritants and allergens that can be detrimental to anyone exposed to them.
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.
