Mold is hazardous and can cause severe issues to the structure of a building. If not contained and removed properly, mold spores can spread and cause unhealthy mold strains capable of causing various health effects on a person.

Things you should know when dealing with Mold

Mold can be cleaned with a simple bleach solution. The EPA's recommendation to clean up a moldy area of up to 9 square feet is to wipe it with a cloth dampened with a diluted bleach solution. 

Mold can be caused by lack of monitoring and maintenance. Mold accumulation can often be caused or worsened by failing to properly ventilate a residence. For example, if you shower without a fan on and the humidity builds and remains warm for extended periods, mold can build up in the vents and within the walls.

Insurance doesn't always cover mold. Insurance policies won't normally cover mold, fungus, or dry rot within a home. However, if a water damage event occurs and mold results from that damage over time, property insurance will cover most repairs except mold remediation.

Save money on mold remediation and be smart during emergencies. It isn't necessary to have a plumber or contractor rip out your walls if you fear you have mold. Our expert mold remediators can come and examine the situation before any expensive teardowns ever happen. We're Faster to Any Size Disaster and pride ourselves in restoration before replacing. 

SERVPRO of Chaska/Chanhassen is here for all of your mold remediation needs. If You See Signs of Mold, Call Us Today at 952-999-2435.
