Mold Remediation in Mankato, Minnesota, With ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca

No one needs to be reminded of the devastating rainfall that hit the Mankato area in recent weeks. Too many are still recovering from basement flooding and water damage. Still, now is a good time to talk about mold damage. That’s the inevitable result of standing floodwater for any length of time in a home or other building when the weather is warm. We want you to know that ServiceMaster of Mankato is the best choice for dealing with mold infestation.

If you smell an odor of mildew or mold, it’s almost certain that you have mold damage somewhere in the house. It’s most likely in the basement, but it could just as well be in areas where water and humidity are present such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens. If you’ve had flooding, sewage backup, or standing water in the building in recent months, those are the other obvious culprits. We will locate the mold and neutralize it so it doesn’t spread or cause any further threat to your family’s health. Mold that is left alone will only grow and the damage will only spread the next time it’s exposed to moisture.

In addition to removing damaged materials such as drywall, paneling, ceiling tile, or wood, we’re able to check into hard-to-reach areas and make sure they are free of mold spores. We’ll pack out any debris and dispose of it safely.

Why is mold such a problem?

But theres another reason why mold is such a concern. Medical experts have left no doubt about the health risks associated with mold infestations in homes and businesses. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention points out that many people have sensitivities to mold; some would be considered allergies, while other people simply have a predisposition to mold spore irritation. They may develop congestion or coughing as soon as they enter the building, symptoms that could worsen as exposure continues. The more serious concerns are the dangers for people with diagnosed allergies, respiratory problems, or asthma. Even worse is the exposure risk to people with lung diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder). These people can actually develop mold infections in their lungs.

The Institute of Medicine, which offers expert analysis of medical conditions and practices in the United States, bears out the risk in its reports. In fact, the data and concern was so great nationally, that the IOM experts wrote a book on the health dangers stemming from damp spaces. That’s two national health organizations sounding the warning on mold infestations. The Environmental Protection Agency also weighs in on the issue of mold contamination and offers tips for mold prevention, warning about mold spore dangers in the air of homes and businesses.
