If mold removal is on your to-do list, don’t wait to deal with it! The summer and early autumn months here in the Midwest provide optimal growing conditions for mold. Warm weather and high humidity are the norm for this time of year, but recent heavy rains and flooding have made the conditions even more favorable for the growth of mold.
If you see or smell mold in your home and need a mold removal expert to come and evaluate it, contact SMART Restoration immediately. Our team of experts is trained to inspect your home or business, determine whether mold is present, and come up with a mold removal solution to take care of the problem.
You may associate mold with poorly kept or unclean places. But the truth is even the cleanest home or business can have mold. Things like overflowing washing machines or dishwashers, leaking or burst pipes, and basements that have been inundated with water due to heavy rain can all be starting points for mold. Poorly functioning HVAC systems or dripping window air conditioners can also result in hidden moisture problems and create an environment where mold can thrive.
Mold spores are everywhere in our environment. There is simply no way to avoid them. Even though the heating and air conditioning systems in your home should help filter the air, open doors and windows can let in spores. Spores can also travel on your clothing or pets and land in your home or business. Once they arrive, they only need warmth, moisture and organic material in order to begin growing. Some examples of organic material in your home or business include drywall carpet fabrics and even the structural wood in the building.
When you hire us to take care of your mold removal, you can rest assured that we will treat your home or business as if it were our own. Our team uses only EPA-approved products when cleaning up water damage and treating mold. We follow all appropriate safety precautions including wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and taking steps to ensure that mold spores do not spread to other areas of the structure during treatment. We will use specialized equipment to clean and dry carpets and remove any water damaged materials. Our air cleaning system will ensure that the air you breathe is safe and healthy.
You may think that mold removal or flood damage cleanup is something you can do yourself. However, most people don’t have the right equipment or expertise to do a correct and thorough job. Waiting to call in an expert mold removal company can end up costing you more, as the mold will continue to grow and spread, causing further damage.
