MOLD IS THE WORST

What is there to like about mold? The answer, for most people, is “absolutely nothing.” Mold is a nuisance to any home, keen to pop up anywhere where there is water or humidity in excessive levels. Mold is microscopic in nature, making it extremely hard to detect until it has already become a problem, and it can have significant consequences on the air quality of your home. If you have a mold problem, you shouldn’t hesitate to call a mold-remediation and removal company.

THE DANGERS OF MOLD

That Nasty Smell: The odious scent of mold is often the first giveaway that it’s growing in your home. You’ll know mold when you smell it, and it’s not pleasant. Getting rid of the gross smell is one of the most compelling reasons to pursue mold removal.

It Looks Gross: In serious cases of mold growth, you’ll see dark, spotty, stain-like splotches all over the surface it’s growing on. It’s not easy on the eyes and it smears and smudges with conventional cleaning methods.

It’s a Health Hazard: Mold greatly reduces the air quality in your home, posing legitimate health threats to those who have allergies or asthma. Mold is microscopic and its spores can go airborne — the less mold in the air, the better.

When water or humidity makes its way onto your property, mold spores tend to enter as well. They can enter through doors, windows, ventilation systems, attach to your clothing, or even come in on your dog or cat!

It’s no secret that mold growth is a tremendous problem for many homes, especially when it goes untreated for an extended period of time. Mold becomes an exponentially worse problem the longer you allow it to grow, so the best option you have is to nip it in the bud before it gets bad.

The thing that’s important to know about mold removal is that it’s just about impossible to completely eliminate it. Mold aggressively propagates wherever there is strong levels of moisture, so if you see a company selling the idea of complete and total mold removal, they’re promising something that simply can be done.

However, mold can be a non-issue if it’s treated with proper remediation techniques. Using cutting-edge technology and the latest scientific innovations, we can reduce the mold in your home to the point where it’s not a problem. Our process is carried out safely and responsibly, and your home will feel brand new.

Are you struggling with mold anywhere near Gloucester, Essex, Manchester, or any of the other surrounding areas in Massachusetts, contact Clean Pro today!

OUR MOLD REMOVAL AND REMEDIATION PROCESS

The problem with mold is that you can’t just treat it like a dirty stain — whereas a soda spill will clean up when you wipe it with soap and water, mold is made up of organic biomatter, and it easily goes airborne. While it may seem like you’re getting rid of mold by just scrubbing away at it, the reality is that innumerous microscopic spores are still surviving, and they’ll just settle down again when they find some moisture.

Our process, then, focuses on more than just cleaning up mold-heavy areas. The philosophy behind mold remediation is that you not only need to remove it, you need to prevent it from growing back again by creating the right conditions in the home. The truth is that you can’t completely destroy mold — microscopic spores float around in the air virtually everywhere you go. But you can make it difficult for mold to settle down.

Our process involves removing the mold, reducing airborne spores, dehumidifying the air, drying out moisture-rich areas, disposing of unsalvageable items, and extensively cleaning everything else in the home that may have been infected. Only by doing all of these things do you have a fighting chance at keeping mold away for good.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IMG1-5e064bf8e9cdb.png

CAN I TAKE CARE OF MOLD REMOVAL MYSELF?

While we are strong believers in the benefits of DIY projects, mold removal and remediation is a problem that’s best left to the experts. There are certain things you can do at home to prevent mold from finding a place to grow, but if it’s reached the point where there’s a visible mold problem at home, it means that the problem has already been persisting for quite a while. In these situations, mold removal will be an ambitious project that requires professional treatment.

At CleanPro, we use state-of-the-art technology to dehumidify your home, sanitize your possessions, and comprehensively treat moldy areas. If you attempt to do the job yourself, it’s overwhelmingly likely that you’ll leave a lot untouched. That’s not necessarily because you’re inadequate at the job, it’s simply an inevitability if you don’t have the tools and resources at your disposal that are necessary for a full mold remediation treatment.

DO I HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT MOLD IF I HAVEN’T HAD WATER DAMAGE?

One common misconception about mold is that it only turns up in instances of abnormal water quantities. In other words, many people believe that you’ll only end up with a mold problem if you’ve experienced a flood, pipe leak, or any other manner of water damage in your home.

Wrongo! Mold is an insidious substance to deal with because all it needs to colonize is a little bit of moisture. If you’re not careful, you can easily end up creating these conditions in your home. Are you making an effort to dry out your home? Are you keeping an eye on areas where moisture could build up in hot or cool temperatures, such as attics and crawl spaces?

In Massachusetts, there is enough humidity in the air for mold to be a relatively common problem, even without an obvious cause. Be sure to contact Clean Pro if you see any mold growth, or even if you merely suspect there’s a problem.

I DON’T SEE ANY MOLD ANYWHERE. THAT MEANS I’M GOOD, RIGHT?

Not necessarily. While it’s certainly a good omen to have no visible mold spots, that doesn’t mean there’s not a problem in your home. If you’ve noticed any discrepancies in your indoor air quality, you might have mold growth somewhere that’s hidden from view.

Mold quite often grows behind big appliances such as washing and drying machines, so make sure you’re checking those areas before you jump to conclusions. It’s also possible for it to grow within the walls, or in seldom-accessed areas such as attics. Just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there!

It can be difficult discerning whether or not you have a mold problem in your Massachusetts home. If you have any doubt at all, we’d be happy to help out. We can help homeowners determine whether or not there is hidden mold growth, and determine the severity of the problem if there is one.

WHAT ARE THE DANGERS OF MOLD?

There are an abundant amount of different mold species, and their effects vary depending on the severity of their growth. In the cases of most mold, you won’t feel noticeable changes in your air quality unless it’s been growing for quite some time. But there’s a bit of a snowball effect with mold — the bigger the colonies get, the more spores they release into the air. It’s a problem that can get out of control if you let it grow big enough.

Because the damages of mold are highly variable, there’s not a list of symptoms we can create that will apply 100% of the time. But here are some of the most common dangers that are associated with mold growth:

  • Respiratory problems
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Headaches
  • Itchy eyes
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Autoimmune response
  • Foul odor

WHO IS MOST IN DANGER OF MOLD?

Mold affects everyone differently, but as is the case with most health issues, certain people are going to be more susceptible than others. With mold, children are the most at-risk, along with people who suffer from respiratory problems.

If you know somebody who struggles with Asthma or other conditions relating to indoor air quality, mold can be severely detrimental to their well-being. Meanwhile, children are still growing and haven’t quite developed the powerful immune system that most adults have. Their bodies are likely to have more severe reactions to strong mold growth in the home. Even if mold doesn’t seem like a problem for you, it’s important to consider everyone else in the home!
