It can be a challenge to keep mold out of your home or building because airborne mold spores are a constant natural presence. The spores only need a source of moisture to grow and they can use many household materials like wood and drywall as a food source. Mold growth must be removed immediately because it can cause deep structural damage to the affected areas and trigger serious health effects. ServiceMaster Kwik Restore provides mold remediation services to completely remove mold growth from affected homes and businesses. We are serving Lake, McHenry and Kane County in IL and Racine/Kenosha County in WI. Our technicians will prevent the mold from spreading as we work and we will make sure all damaged surfaces are repaired or replaced.
Mold growth is always caused by moisture and usually occurs because of high humidity or water damage like leaks and floods. Cellulose is the main food source for mold and it is found in many common building materials like drywall, wood, and insulation. This is why mold has the potential to cause irreversible damage to these surfaces unless it is removed quickly. The other serious concern with mold growth is the health effects caused by exposure to the spores. Mold exposure can lead to allergic reactions like coughing, itchy eyes, skin irritation, and nasal congestion. In extreme cases, mold exposure can also trigger more serious issues including asthma and respiratory infections.
At ServiceMaster Kwik Restore, we can provide complete mold removal for homes and commercial buildings that includes testing and restoration of the damage. We work closely with an environmental testing agency to test the home or building and locate all hidden mold. The mold is then removed with anti-microbial cleaning methods and the damaged surfaces are either repaired or replaced depending on the level of the damage.
You can expect the following basic steps with our mold remediation services:
- Testing and thorough assessment of the mold growth.
- Report of our assessment is provided to the insurance company.
- Containment of the mold to the already damaged areas.
- Creation of a mold remediation plan according to our assessment.
- Thorough mold removal and repair or replacement of the damaged surfaces.
Mold is likely to pop up in your home or building at any time and any hesitation to remove it will only increase the risk of serious property damage or health effects.
