Mold Removal Near You

Discovering mold growth is an alarming experience for most homeowners. Mold is a health threat that can cause asthma attacks or allergic reactions in some people. In light of this, it's important to hire a team you can trust to eliminate mold, repair damaged material, and return air quality back to normal. ServiceMaster of Rochester follows the IICRC S520 standard for the removal of mold from a building or property. This represents a very high standard of care within the restoration and mold remediation industry. Alongside mold, bacteria and fungi can also grow in a water-damaged areas or high-humidity areas. We always recommend hiring professionals so that your property is evaluated for any hidden infestations that may not be visible or obvious.

FACT:

Plain water has no odor! When odors are present, this means that water has contacted a material or organism that can release volatile compounds or, in everyday terms, odor. This does not mean that mold is present, but it could indicate that something biological is growing. Surface fungi can begin to grow at as little as 16% wood moisture content. Of course, as the percent of moisture climbs, other things start to grow, which adds to dry rot or even wet rot in wood. Controlling the moisture of the environment is most important in eliminating growth opportunities for microbial growth. This can be as simple as running an air exchange system or adding a dehumidifier to a damp area of your home or office. While water damaged carpets often needed to be discarded, we do provide carpet cleaning services and upholstery cleaning for instances where salvaging is possible.
