Do you suspect you have mold in your home? Mold can originate in basements, exterior walls, and/or around leaking or sweating pipes hidden within interior walls. It is caused by the frequent or periodic intrusion of water in an area that has restricted or little airflow. Because it is a direct result of water intrusion, mold is a frequent problem after any type of flooding or excess water has occurred in the home.

If left untreated, mold can cause structural damage to your home, as well potential health problems for you and your family members. Long term exposure to mold can cause anything from mild headaches and cold-like symptoms to more severe respiratory illness. ServiceMaster Fire & Water Clean Up Services not only has extensive experience in locating and determining the presence of mildew in your home, but we also have the most advanced technology and procedures to remove mold completely.

There are many kinds of mold that can grow in the home. Signs to look out for include:

  • Visible signs of mold, no matter how small (black spots that appear soiled or sooty, and grow over time; white thread-like strands, sometimes even green, brown or pink areas)
  • Musty odors
  • Signs of water damage or water problems
  • New allergic symptoms in one of your family members that dissipate when that member leaves the home (sneezing, wheezing, itchy or sore eyes, runny nose or nasal congestion)

We are able to perform mold removal for any size area. However, mold damage areas of over 10 square feet will require written protocol and testing from a certified hygienist.

Our company has received a clearance in EVERY mold cleanup job we have performed. We are experts in the mold mitigation process including specialties of negative airflow, HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuuming and fogging. We are also certified for mold remediation at business establishments in Lancaster and York Counties.

How to Prevent Mold Growth

There are several things you can do to help prevent mold growth in your home or business:

  • Use fans to speed up drying time for any walls that may become soaked. Mold requires 24-48 hours of moisture to multiply.
  • Prevent water leaks. Quickly repair any leaking roof, wall, pipe, shower or dripping faucet.
  • Minimize condensation. Moisture from frequent condensation is an ideal breeding ground for mold. Check metal pipes, toilets, concrete walls, water tanks, and windows for condensation that persists for more than a few hours.
  • Reduce humidity. A standard dehumidifier can work wonders in preventing mold in many basements, or at frequently humid places such as beach houses.
