Mold and Water Damage Specialist – Londonderry, NH 03053
Homes and businesses throughout New Hampshire (NH) can experience water and mold damage at any time of the year. It may be a result of broken or clogged pipes, foundation or roof leaks, excessive indoor moisture or a flood from a recent rain or snow storm. Regardless of the event that caused water and mold damage, business and homeowners are often plagued with frustration and uncertainty on what the next steps are and how to quickly and efficiently remediate the mold and water damage with a trusted professional. For one Londonderry family, finding a mold and water damage specialist came quicker than they anticipated.
Kitchen Damage Due to Leaking Waterline
The Londonderry family of four were gearing up for their spring kitchen remodel and were shopping for new cabinets to begin the project. The family was excited to find the perfect cabinets. They couldn’t wait to have them installed by a family friend who was a contractor. However, their excitement quickly turned to angst, as the contractor started to remove the old cabinets and noticed dark water staining on the cabinet back and side boards due to a leaking waterline. To make matters worse, the contractor also saw dark green spots scattered around underneath the sink. It was due to excessive moisture and a dark location-the perfect breeding ground for mold. The family quickly grew frustrated and unsure of what to do, as their spring kitchen remodel turned into a mold remediation project.
Soil-Away-The Mold and Water Damage Specialist
The family had a certified and insured plumber and mold-testing company come out to assess the damage caused by the leaking waterline. Once the waterline was repaired, the family was referred to Soil-Away to remediate the mold issue. The family immediately called Soil-Away’s 24/7 emergency hotline and crews were out to the home the next day. Technicians wore protective equipment when removing the mold and impacted cabinetry and drywall. Dehumidifiers were then used to dry out the remaining structure that was able to be restored. The family was extremely satisfied with how quickly Soil-Away technicians responded to the issue. There was a high level of professionalism throughout the entire process.
Finding Mold Before It Finds You
If you suspect your home has mold, whether it is in the kitchen, basement or another common location, there are a few signs to lookout for such as:
- A musty odor.
- Visible mold growth (these may appear as small areas of dirt or soot).
- Health symptoms resembling allergies (sneezing, watering eyes, etc.).
- Knowledge of past water damage or excessive condensation
Knowing the Signs of Water Damage
Locating water damage in your home or business can be a time-consuming task, since not all water staining is visible. However, there are a few telltale signs to lookout for if you feel your home or business may be compromised to water damage. A few signs to keep in mind are:
- Water stains on the walls, ceilings, or floors (this is the most common sign of water damage).
- Bending or warping of floors or sub-floors.
- Damp carpeting.
- A visible water puddle, especially under an appliance.
- Rust around the water heater or other structures that may be prone to leaks.
