Mold Clean-up in Foxborough, MA
Mold often appears arbitrarily, and begins to affect buildings before many people are aware of it. Often, homeowners do not realize mold is present until it has entered the walls of a home, causing for more remediation to be necessary than it would if it was discovered earlier.
Before we begin an inspection or start wiping down walls, there are some questions one of our inspectors here at SERVPRO will ask you about your Foxborough home, these answers can help us speed up the process to return your residence to its original state.
First, have you seen any mold and where is it? If you find black spots and streaks in your home, this is your visual sign that you have a fungi problem. It is where we'll start the inspection and begin using air quality meters to determine how contaminated the air has become.
Next, have you smelled a musty odor? Often the first sign of a mold infestation, but not every type of mold spores releases an odor. Visual inspection is still the best way to find it. If the odor is the only outward sign, then the next questions become vital.
Have you had recent water damage? If you have, this has raised the surrounding moisture level in the air and possibly the building material. A high moisture level is required for mold spores to expand and begin growing. They are inert and harmless otherwise.
Answering these questions helps our response team establish containment zones faster and prepare your home for mold remediation and removal more efficiently. If you see, smell or just suspect mold because of recent water damage, call us today at (508) 533-5305 to get the remediation process started.
