When is Mold Remediation Required?

Mold growth, in particular black mold growth, can cause health issues if left untreated, so it's important to know when to call in the professionals at ServiceMaster Recovery by Close for mold removal and remediation. A good rule of thumb is that if you suspect mold growth and the area is over 10 square feet (about 3 feet by 3 feet), you'll want to consult a professional.

Signs that you should hire mold remediation specialists include water damage from a severe leak or flooding event, dark spots on walls or other surfaces, a strong musty or mildew-like odor in the affected area, and extended bouts of coughing, sneezing stuffy nose, or irritated eyes for you or a loved one.

According to EPA guidelines, for smaller infestations (under 10 square feet) regular household products, over-the-counter treatments, or natural cleaners like white vinegar or bleach can be used to remove the mold. However, if you need mold remediation in Rochester, NY, don't hesitate to reach out by phone or online!

Why You Need Professional Mold Removal Services

Special expertise is necessary for effective mold removal. Normal cleaning products and methods will just stir up the mold spores, contaminate other areas of your home or business, and spread the problem. And visible mold in your home or office is a likely indication of a greater problem nearby.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published a helpful guidebook for homeowners about the cleanup and prevention of mold problems in homes. This booklet entitled, “A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture and Your Home”, is available on the EPA web site at:
