Written by Casey Shearns on . Posted in , , , .

Spring cleaning is a universal experience here in New England. You can probably think of a list the length of a CVS receipt of all of the chores you are ready to tackle after the harsh weather and strange spring we have been having. Though the first thing that comes to mind may be getting rid of old junk around the house or power washing your exterior, there is one spring cleaning task that should take precedent over the rest; mold remediation. 

Follow along as the mold remediation specialists at Soil-Away go over exactly how to tackle any mold in your home that may have formed during the transition from winter to spring. 

How to Recognize Moisture

During the winter months, water can seep into your home from snow, rain, or any condensation caused by changing temperatures. Small cracks are inevitable and most of the time, not visible, allowing moisture to leak in. The more prolonged moisture is able to sit, the more mold will thrive and grow in those conditions. It is crucial that if you are noticing any water spots or damage around your home, it is taken care of immediately. 

Common Signs of Mold Growth

Most of the time, you are not suspecting that mold is growing in your home when you are taking good care of it. However, all mold needs to grow is a bit of moisture and dark surroundings. If you notice any of the following, there is potential for mold. 

  • Water stains on walls or ceilings
  • Black staining
  • Paint or wallpaper peeling
  • Musty odor

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.
