Getting Bold with Mold in Greenville, South Carolina

Posted: 12 Aug, 2014 by:

Mold requires moisture to grow. But it can start quickly, just 24 to 48 hours after moisture appears, and grow fast, becoming a real health problem before you know it. To nip this in the bud, you can cure straightforward instances yourself—wipe it up and dry it out.
But sometimes its more complicated, and our professional services can help. First, how did the water get here? If it’s the result of leaks in the roof, plumbing problems or flooding, cleaning up can be a futile measure at best and a recurring nightmare at worst. We can help locate where the water is coming from if you have persistent mold.
Then you have to repair any areas that are either weakened by the water damage or unlikely to dry out in any timely manner. We can help identify and repair those as well.
Finally, you have two more steps: kill the mold and dry the area out really well. We are the experts on killing mold. In terms of drying, it’s so tempting to let nature take its course—won’t simple evaporation cure it all in the end? Maybe. But if you have a moldy basement, intervention is required. If you have a carpet that just won’t dry out for weeks, that means not only are the mold colonies growing in that time, but the floor under the carpet may be suffering irreparable damage.
Sometimes our most invaluable role is our simplest: we help you decide just when to cut your losses. When do you dry out that carpet vs replace it? Just how extensive do your plumbing or roof repairs need to be? It’s hard to bite the bullet without professional advice. On top of all our expertise, muscle power, equipment and experience, one thing we bring to the table is the experience of the customers who came before you. When you hear the stories of others who decided to do everything that was necessary to get rid of the mold once and for all, and you hear how they feel about it later, making the best choices can suddenly be easier.
Give us a call. We’ll help you clarify, make the easy and tough choices, and get this behind you as fast as possible.
Mold? Be bold.
