A great deal of attention has been paid to mold and its effects by the media in recent years — and for good reason. That unsightly, fuzzy, green and black substance that we all notice in our refrigerators occasionally when food is left uneaten for too long is just as harmful when it is found within your home. While you can simply throw away food that is moldy without eating it, and sidestep mold’s unhealthy side effects, the process of ridding your home or business of mold is more complicated than that. At ServiceMaster of Greenville and Spartanburg, we can help you with all aspects of mold removal, treatment, and testing to safeguard your health.
Inspection by ServiceMaster
At ServiceMaster of Greenville and Spartanburg, we have the crucial experience needed to inspect your home or business for the presence of mold. Before we begin any procedures or testing, we thoroughly inspect the area so that we can pinpoint the problem. Without definitive diagnosis of the problem area, it cannot be addressed and fixed so that a repeat of the issue can be avoided. In addition to a thorough visual inspection, ServiceMaster of Greenville and Spartanburg also takes numerous samples.
Any mold testing that is undertaken in your home or business should only be performed by a professional that is trained to do so. At ServiceMaster of Greenville and Spartanburg, our professional technicians are trained to know the correct levels of mold so they can alert you to any issues. In addition, they are also able to test for mold without increasing its spread.
Benefits of Mold Testing
When it comes to testing the mold within your home or business, you might not understand why ServiceMaster needs to do so if the mold is visible. Knowing the type of mold — as well as how many types of mold you are dealing with — can help with the formulation of a plan of action. Of course, testing is equally important when it comes to mold that is hidden. Though you might not be able to see it, mold typically alerts you to its presence by its distinctive musty odor. Using protective gear that is designed to minimize the spread of the mold, as well as technologically advanced tools, mold testing by ServiceMaster can help pinpoint the origin of your mold issue if it is not immediately known.
Contact ServiceMaster of Greenville and Spartanburg immediately if you suspect that you have a mold problem in your Spartanburg or Greenville home or business. We can take steps, including mold testing, in order to safeguard your home, business and health.
