Professional Mold Removal – Kennebunk, Maine

Written by jsolloway on . Posted in , .

M-O-L-D: Mold can be a problem. However, believe it or not, mold is everywhere. Much of it is found outdoors. It can be carried indoors through windows, doors, the HVAC systems, on peoples clothing as well as on pets. On its own it’s not really a problem. When it attaches to moist objects and the mold spores begin to grow and spread – then, you have a problem. If excessive mold growth is found inside a property a professional mold removal company is typically the remedy. Mold is a destructive organism which can damage or ruin just about any surface some of which are:

  • Carpets
  • Drywall
  • Ceilings
  • Furniture
  • Upholstery
  • Clothing
  • Paper products

What’s more, mold can also damage the structure of a building as well as cause health problems. If you find that your home or office has mold, you need to find a professional mold removal company. As a resident of Kennebunk Maine, you owe it to yourself to get help as soon as possible. Mold can spread rapidly, sometimes in as quickly as 48 hours after a water damage or flood situation. If your home has been subjected to moisture, you need to get a professional mold removal specialist soon.

Mold and what to do about it

How do you know if you even have mold? Mold has a very unique smell. It gives off a dank, musty odor. If you smell this unpleasant smell you should follow it and see where the source is. Mold can have a slimy or powdery look. It can be various colors (brown, green, gray or even black), in some instances, it can be fuzzy. Once mold has formed, it’s best to seek a professional mold removal company to assist. Mold can be tricky and if it’s not completely removed and the source located, it may return.

Preventive methods

Once mold has become a problem, contact a professional. If your home does not have a problem, here are some forms of prevention to keep it that way:

  • If you have plumbing issues, have them repaired. Don’t let leaks persist.
  • Reduce indoor humidity to 30 – 45%. A dehumidifier will help, especially in the more humid months.
  • Keep the structure well-ventilated, especially in bathrooms or places near moisture, like faucets
  • Periodically inspect places you don’t go often like the attic or basement. Check for signs of mold growth, high humidity levels and water intrusion.

Seeking a qualified professional mold removal company

Once you’ve located mold in your home, removing it can prove to be a daunting task. You need to call a professional. You need someone with experience who can:

  • Detect how much mold is in your home and where it’s hidden.

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.
