Seasonal yard cleanups, furnace cleanings and home remodels are just a few of usual tasks that New Hampshire (NH) home and business owners find themselves performing every year. However, while removing the large brush pile that has been piling up in your backyard for the past few years, ensuring the furnace and hot water heater are running smoothly or taking a hammer to that outdated bathroom tile may be high on your list of “to-do” tasks, running into an unexpected mold problem is probably not. A mold damage repair project is not something anyone wants to add to their to-do list.
What happens when you decide to remove that dreadful bathroom tile and are immediately greeted with black, slimy growths? Not only can mold reside in bathrooms, but these pesky fungi spots can pop up in any location that is moist, dark and has poor air ventilation. Bow residents who uncover mold in their bathrooms, attics, basements and even garages, are reaching out to the mold damage repair experts at Soil-Away Cleaning and Restoration Services for prompt and professional mold remediation.
You see black and green fragments littering your attic walls, behind cabinetry or on your garage walls. As you scrunch up your face in disgust, you begin to question whether or not these unwanted specks have made your home, well, their home. So, what exactly is mold and what are the common characteristics of it? 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, but any mold-related health concerns should be addressed with your physician or medical doctor. Mold can come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors, ranging from white and green to black and grey. These troublesome fungi growths can affect most areas in your home that are humid, moist and dark.
A Bow family recently discovered mold in their home’s attic when they decided to perform the annual cleaning of their attic. They ended up uncovering more than just the holiday Christmas tree. While cleaning out the attic, the family discovered white and green growths near the attic window, and noticed the flooring was damp and slightly bowing. Concerned as to what is causing the mold growth, the Bow family contacted a licensed professional to verify that these unwanted specks were in fact mold. Once the diagnosis of mold was confirmed, the licensed professional recommended Soil-Away to remediate the mold and repair the damage to the flooring and attic wall that was caused by poor weather stripping around the attic window. The weather stripping was damaged and was not preventing moisture and weather from entering the attic. These issues would soon be solved by the mold damage repair experts at Soil-Away.
Once the Bow family contacted Soil-Away for prompt mold removal services, Soil-Away crew members assessed the damage the very next day. Crew members didn’t waste any time removing the mold growths from the attic wall and flooring. The team utilized several tools and techniques including HEPA air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums and personal protective equipment (PPE) to tackle the mold. In addition dehumidifies were setup throughout the attic to dry-out the area. Within no time, the mold was removed from the attic, in addition to the excess water that accumulated on the floor from the unsatisfactory window. The window was replaced properly to avoid a reoccurrence of the water damage. The family was impressed by Soil-Away’s professionalism, promptness and attention to detail during the entire mold clean-up process.
