Mold Damage

Wherever there is water damage, mold is not far behind—less than 24 hours to be exact.

Moist or wet building materials that have not been properly dried may begin to mold within a shorter period of time than you might think. Mold can cause respiratory issues in occupants who are not usually vulnerable and worsen preexisting conditions like allergies and asthma. Once mold is present, there is more work to do than simply drying out your home or business to eliminate the risk to your health.

We will work quickly to tear out or decontaminate any moldy building materials and protect your health.

8 Facts About Mold Damage

  1. Mold can cause respiratory issues like allergic reactions, asthma attacks, and more.
  2. You cannot simply remove the mold from your home without also controlling the source of the moisture or water damage.
  3. Mold can grow on just about anything, including wood, drywall, carpet, paper, and food.
  4. You can clean mold off hard surfaces by using water and detergent and drying them completely.
  5. If your home or business has a recurring issue with mold, you may be able to fix it by reducing the humidity between 30%-60%.
    • You can reduce humidity in your home or business by venting bathrooms and dryers (sources of moisture) to the outside.
    • You can also reduce humidity by using air conditioners and dehumidifiers.
    • Finally, you can reduce humidity by using exhaust fans whenever you are cooking, washing dishes, or cleaning.
  6. If you insulate your home or business, you can prevent the collection of condensation on cold surfaces such as windows, piping, exterior walls, the roof, and floors, reducing moisture.
  7. Do not install carpet by a drinking fountain, classroom sink, or in a location near leaks or condensation as this will not allow the moisture to dissipate.
  8. Do clean and dry moist or wet building materials and furniture within 24 hours to prevent the growth of mold.

We would highly recommend Service Master to anyone. Our basement flooded and they handled it as true professionals. On-time, great service, top quality work, excellent communication and follow up.

Good job Elisei!

We had a fire sprinkler break in the middle of the night. We called ServiceMaster by Antim's Quality Service. They arrived promptly to start cleaning and drying all three floors of our house. Elisiah, Rebecca and their whole team were extremely helpful, available, and efficient. It is rare to find compassion in a company like this. They were informative every step of the way and me and my family are grateful for the quality of service we received.
