Concord Mold Removal: Why You Should Hire a Professional

Written by chrischambers on . Posted in , .

Mold is a living organism that is categorized alongside mushrooms, yeast and mildew, so it must be harmless, right? This is the line of thinking that leads many to take on mold removal by themselves and not only make the problem worse, but create health risks for those living on the property. Our Concord mold removal experts at Soil Away understand the risks of mold and can help you remove it in a way that is safe for everyone involved.

Health Risks

In some situations, mold can be harmful to both humans and animals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warns of the numerous health problems can result from exposure to molds including upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy individuals. Professional removal services are essential to ensure that you, your family and your pets are not exposed to any potential risks that adversely impact your health. Here is a sample list of mold types commonly found in structures when mold testing is completed:

  • Cladosporium
  • Penicilium
  • Fusarium
  • Aspergillus
  • Stachybotrys

Job Quality

Conducting mold removal on your own is tempting because you don’t have to shell out any cash for professional services. However, in the long run, a shoddy job will end up costing you more money – a poor removal job will only lead more severe mold problems and ultimately, you’ll end up spending more on mold remediation than you would have if you invested in fixing the problem earlier.

Mold Agitation and Cross Contamination

One of the main reasons that professionals are needed for mold removal is due to the possibility of cross contamination. Although it seems like an easy process, removing mold requires a great deal of care and even a small amount of agitation can spread microscopic mold spores into the air. Agitation increases the chances of mold spreading to other areas of your home and can increase the risk of health problems due to this increased mold presence.

Getting to the Source

Removing mold on your own is a temporary fix and you might even be able to avoid cross contamination if you’re lucky. But what about the source of the problem? Our professionals not only deal with your mold problem, they pinpoint where the problem started and why, meaning you can prevent any future outbreaks and invest in a long-term solution.
If you notice mold getting out of control in your home, try and think of the long-term benefits of professional services as opposed to the short-term benefits of doing it yourself. Our Concord mold removal experts can ensure that your home is freed from the health hazards of toxic molds and develop a plan to minimize the chances of an outbreak occurring again in the future. For further questions or concerns, give us a call anytime at (603) 301-4863 and we’ll be happy to help you out.

All I have to say is WOW and FANTASTIC. I just got done building out my new professional office with Soil-Away’s construction division and they went ABOVE and BEYOND. Scott and Mike, the carpenters are skilled artisans. The project got done on time and the project came in on budget! The finished results have been blowing people away. Much better than I could have anticipated. Anyone is welcome to come to our office, Bright Light Chiropractic in Hooksett to check out the fine work they did. Simply can’t sing enough praises for them. Sorry that the picture doesn’t do the job justice. Thank you Jack and your team. -Dr. Jay

Since day one, I’ve known the owner, Jack, to be a hard-working and selfless leader. Through the efforts of him and his team, he was able to restore my flooded restaurant to tip-top shape. I was amazed with Jack’s orderliness throughout the entire process. Jack has proven to me that he is trustworthy, as both a friend and an individual in the work environment.

Highly recommend Soil-Away. A pipe in our upstairs bathroom gave and sent water down through a wall for at least a day before we noticed water dripping through our kitchen ceiling. Our insurance put us in touch with Soil-Away and they were at our house the next morning to assess the damage and dry things out. Joe, Ray and Tom were phenomenal to work with. They explained every part of the process to us and were very professional and friendly. If you have to deal with similar issues call Soil-Away, you won’t regret it.
