Your nose knows if there’s something different about the warm-weather months in the Shoreview, Minnesota area and other parts of the Metro. Step into your basement or maybe the lower level of a building this time of the year. Do you detect a stale, musty smell? If so, it could be a sign of a moisture problem and it may be a signal you need to seriously consider doing some mold remediation.

What is mold remediation?

Northwest ServiceMaster knows the term remediation has become a bit of a buzzword in recent years. When it comes to mold, it means meticulously removing mold and decontaminating the area it’s infesting to avoid the potential future problems that grow along with it.

While moisture is great for keeping our lawns from wilting and flowers happy this time of the year, it’s an open invitation for mold spores. They can grow on just about any surface so long as there’s moisture, oxygen, and a food source. Excessive dampness in basements or under a leaky roof can lead to a bumper crop of mold.

Why mold remediation is required

The pros at Northwest ServiceMaster know that mold remediation is the only way to eliminate mold and save valuable property. It can also help to fight a danger you may not have thought of. Inhaling mold spores can be bad for you and your family’s wellbeing—this includes the possibility of allergic reactions or potentially worsening health issues.

Our professionally trained technicians know that when it comes to mold, drying is not enough. Only removing it and decontaminating the area will ensure long-term relief from spores that can rapidly grow and fly through the air to promptly reinfest another area.
