Mold spores exist virtually everywhere in the air, on plants and the ground, and even in most spaces indoors. When heavy rains, indoor flooding, or humidity leave excess moisture in your home or business, it often creates the perfect environment for mold spores to settle and form colonies. When this situation sparks mold growth in your home or business, immediate removal is the safest way to prevent further growths. ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration offers professional mold mitigation for comprehensive removal and environmental neutralization.
While water damage after flooding, rains, and excessive humidity is the first concern for home and business owners, the chances of mold growth are a long-term problem that should never be ignored.
Mold infestations can severely damage the quality of an indoor environment, and turn a “healthy” building into a “sick” building. Extreme infestations can even render a home uninhabitable by Iowa state standards. Our mold mitigation services adhere closely to the practices specified by the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) for complete mold, moisture, and odor remediation to restore your building to a healthy condition.
If mold removal is neglected, the consequences can affect both the health of the people exposed and aspects of the building itself.
Because mold is an allergen, exposure often includes side effects from allergic reactions, including congestion, itchy eyes, coughing, trouble breathing, and headaches. Mold also releases mycotoxins, which can negatively affect people of all ages. Exposure to these toxins can cause asthma in children, lung cancer, pneumonia, and other chronic respiratory problems.
Mold can also damage your building, causing discoloration, rot and other corrosion, odors, HVAC contamination, and more.
Don’t wait when it comes to water damage and mold growth. For more information about mold mitigation, contact ServiceMaster Cleaning and Restoration at 1-800-584-3364.
