Summer is coming to an end, but you may still be dealing with dampness in your basement. This is a concern because it means you could have mold growth that requires professional mold removal. The mold remediation professionals at ServiceMaster DSI are here to help. We follow the best practices outlined by the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), and staff seven certified mold remediation experts and a certified microbial specialist. But let’s step back and cover some causes and concerns about mold growth.
When the term mold removal comes to mind, you may associate that with some recent disaster such as a flood, or a really old house with noticeable black spots all over the walls. Mold can actually affect a newer home as well because mold can be caused by something as simple as high moisture and humidity. In some instances, you may not be able to see the mold. It may be on the backside of the drywall. This is called hidden mold and it will continue to grow, out of sight. Mold can even thrive between the wallpaper and the drywall. Hidden mold is just as dangerous as the mold spots you can see, but it is also something that professionals can completely eradicate so you can feel confident staying in your home.
Another concern is that mold and dampness have been associated with multiple allergic and respiratory ailments. If you ignore the need for mold remediation, you run the risk of exposing yourself to potential respiratory issues. However, if you hire a professional mold remediation team like ServiceMaster Restore®, you can avoid these potential health concerns.
Just being aware of the causes of mold are helpful in determining if your home may need mold removal. If you feel you may need professionals to check your home for mold, please contact ServiceMaster DSI for all your mold remediation and removal needs.
