Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , , .

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.

What is Mold?

Mold is a type of multi-cellular fungi that is made up of microorganisms, which are mostly composed of dead organic matter such as leaves and plants. 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. Mold can come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors, ranging from white to black, and can affect most areas in your home that are dark, humid and have poor ventilation such as attics, garages and basements. If you can visually see mold or can smell the musty odor it portrays, it is essential that you contact a certified mold specialist. Mold specialists are comprised of two categories: testing and remediation companies.

Natural Remedies for Getting Rid of Mold

Once a qualified mold remediation specialist verifies that your home or business has an uninvited mold guest, it is important to learn what mold removal techniques you can take to ensure any issues are targeted and removed properly. NH residents can use natural remedies to remove a small amount of mold, however, if mold is detected in a large space that appears to be sporadic and/or underneath carpeting, floor boards, baseboards, etc., it is important to reach out to a certified mold remediation company, such as Soil-Away Cleaning & Restoration Services, who is equipped with protective equipment and HEPA machines to safely and adequately remove mold.

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.
