Chilly mornings and evenings, leaves slowing changing on the trees and children heading back to school can only mean one thing: fall is creeping in around the Granite State. While some may be elated that school is back in session for the new academic year, others may be disappointed that the summer months are whisking by and coming to end. With seasonal projects wrapping-up and business and home owners getting ready for the fall and winter months, what is on your “to-do” project list? Finishing that last bathroom renovation? Shopping for new appliances? Or ensuring the woodstove is in “tip-top” condition for the chilly months ahead? How about getting rid of mold that has been nagging your basement or attic?
Regardless of what the end of the summer means for you, one project that many New Hampshire (NH) business and home owners may not be prepared to do on their own is getting rid of mold. That’s right, Londonderry, NH residents, even with the summer months creeping by, mold can still be an issue in your home or business.

There are over 100,000 types of mold in the world, most of them are harmless, however, any mold-related health concerns should be addressed with your physician.
