About mold and its dangers

Mold is a destructive fungus that thrives in humid areas. Your trusted mold cleanup contractor will show you that it can be found in attics, basements, crawlspaces and any area that has been exposed to moisture. Its job is to decompose things. It can certainly destroy clothing, furniture and paper (to name a few) and can even cause structural damage to buildings. Not only can it be damaging to your home (or business) it can be a health hazard. While small amounts of mold will not usually be dangerous, people who are allergic to mold can be affected. Common symptoms are congestion, watery eyes and cough. People with weak immune systems, those with respiratory problems and acute allergies can be affected more severely. Some symptoms include headaches, respiratory problems, fatigue, and bleeding in the lungs and nose.

Time is of the essence

Mold is a microbial fungus that is literally everywhere. Outdoor molds are very common and fluctuate in volume, or spore count, based on the season and environment. Mold can be carried indoors in various ways:

  • Windows and doors
  • Through the HVAC systems
  • Your clothing or by a pet
  • Contents getting moved in and out of property

They are airborne but can attach themselves to walls, floors, and furniture as well as paper, clothing etc. They flourish in humid areas and can spread rapidly. Mold can begin to grow and spread within 48 hours. 

Contacting a professional mold cleanup contractor

Once you find that your home or business has mold, it is imperative that you contact a trusted mold cleanup contractor to deal with the problem.

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.
