Kirksville Mold Removal & Inspection

Get Rid of Mold for Good

Mold is more than unsightly – it’s dangerous. Left untreated, mold can grow at a rapid rate, releasing tiny spores into the air that trigger allergic symptoms.

Mold spores are particularly hazardous to people with respiratory conditions. Infants, children and the elderly are also at risk. That’s why it’s crucial that you contact a mold removal specialist at the first sign of mold.

The team at ServiceMaster by Lewellen's use the latest technology to find, diagnose and remove mold to protect you and your family. This includes disinfecting walls, floors and countertops. Because mold also threatens your home’s structure, we can also perform restorative services, such as removing damaged areas and sanding down surfaces.

More About Our Mold Remediation Process

Removing mold is one thing, making sure it doesn’t return is another process altogether. Fixing your home’s mold problem is a multistep process that starts with identifying the source of the problem. This could be a dripping pipe behind a wall, excessive humidity, the lingering effects of catastrophic water damage or poor ventilation.

After we eliminate the source of moisture, we’ll assess and repair any damage, such as warped walls or flooring and discolored surfaces. Throughout the process, we’ll isolate mold with physical barriers and negative air pressure to prevent it spreading to other parts of your home. Plus, we treat affected areas with EPA-approved anti-fungal treatments.

What are signs of mold?

When it comes to mold in homes, spotting the signs of its presence is an important step in preventing further health and structural issues. While mold can take many forms, typical places to look for mold include damp basements or bathrooms, dark spots on walls, a musty odor in certain areas, and visible mold on ceilings or walls. Unfortunately, these may also be signs of other moisture problems as well; therefore it is always best to get mold testing and mold inspection done by a professional like our team at ServiceMaster by Lewellen's . By noticing potential warning signs and getting the inspection done quickly, one can begin the necessary steps towards eradicating mold from your home.

Can't I Just Get Rid of Mold Myself?

There are many great projects for the DIY-inclined homeowner. Mold removal is not one of them.

Many people mistakenly think that a patch of mold can easily be cleaned up with a bucket, a sponge, and some bleach. The reality is that trying to clean up mold without the right tools, chemicals, and techniques could quickly make the problem much worse.

Using a sponge will only spread the mold around and release more spores into the air, which can threaten your health and cause more patches of mold to crop up. Some common side effects of mold exposure are:

  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Worsening respiratory issues such as an asthma attack
  • Itchy eyes and irritated skin
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fever
  • Headaches

It is not worth the time you'll spend or the aggravation you'll experience to forego calling in a mold specialist. The longer you wait to hire a professional, the more involved the remediation process may be.

Bottom line: Mold removal is complicated, requires specialized tools and equipment but is very effective when done properly. That’s why you should leave this job to the professionals at ServiceMaster by Lewellen's in Kirksville.

What is the difference between mold remediation and mold removal?

Mold is a common problem that can cause major health and property damage if left unaddressed. Homeowners often refer to mold mitigation, mold remediation, and mold removal interchangeably. However, mold remediation and mold removal are very different processes.

  • Mold remediation focuses on reducing mold levels in a home or work space through the use of cleaning solutions and air filtration systems to create a safe environment.
  • Mold removal involves completely removing all mold-infected materials such as insulation or drywall before treating the affected area.

It is important to understand the difference between mold remediation and mold removal to ensure that you address mold effectively in your home or workplace.
