ServiceMaster by Mason provides mold inspection, air quality testing and mold removal and cleanup services in Rhode Island and Connecticut
Mold is more than just a smelly nuisance. Many home and business owners are unaware that mold can discolor and cause severe structural damage and even serious health concerns. Indoor mold contamination has been identified as a major contributor to allergies and respiratory problems, costly property destruction, and poor indoor air quality. Any time excessive moisture is present indoors, whether from a flood, a slow leak, broken pipe or just high humidity, mold can grow in as little as 24-48 hours.
Whether mold is visible in a property, or unseen but suspected, ServiceMaster By Mason can help! For over 30 years, we’ve served as experts in mold inspection, mold cleaning and mold remediation services, and mildew removal, to create a clean and healthy environment. Our skilled technicians will thoroughly remove mold and clean and sanitize your property, preventing harmful mold from spreading to unaffected areas with the use of commercial grade anti-microbial agents and the most effective tools and technology for all types of mold removal, including black mold removal.
Water damage, a leaky pipe, or broken sprinkler head can often cause moisture to gather within the walls or ceilings of your property. In these situations, a full-scale mold infestation can quickly develop, and an immediate response is needed to limit the damage and health concerns, clean and eliminate mold or mildew.
The negative effects of mold spores and mold growth can include:
Damage to your building’s structure and stability
Musty odor and discoloration of walls, ceilings, floors, and other hard surfaces
Destruction of contents in your home or building
Worsened allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems
Itchy eyes, running nose, dermatitis (skin rash), headaches and coughing
Poor indoor air quality
Inability to mortgage a home
DISCOVER MOLD SPORES WITH AIR QUALITY TESTING
When you can see visible mold growth, it’s easy to form a plan of attack to remove harmful mold and prevent further destruction. But what happens when you can’t see it? Mold spores are only 3 to 7 microns in size, too small for the human eye to detect and since they’re aerodynamic, can quickly spread throughout a property. That’s when you need a thorough mold inspection or mold air quality testing to determine where all mold spores are hiding, whether elevated levels exist, what types of mold are present, determine protective gear needed and identify potential health risks.

DON’T DIY! TRUST THE EXPERTS FOR MOLD REMOVAL & MOLD REMEDIATION
Special expertise is needed for effective mold and mildew removal and even toxic mold removal. Bleach or other retail cleaning products will simply stir up and spread the mold spores, contaminating other areas of your home or business. Visible mold growth in your home, office or housing complex is a likely indication of a greater problem lurking nearby. Mold in attics and basements can use your hot air/cooling system to quickly spread to other areas in your property.

Keep your home or business safe from destructive mold with these tips:
Monitor your home’s humidity levels. Use a hygrometer or humidity monitor to keep humidity levels between 40% – 60%.
Use exhaust fans in bathrooms & kitchens. Hot showers and cooking can cause condensation, but running an exhaust fan during and at 10-15 minutes after these activities will reduce excess moisture.
Utilize an air conditioner or dehumidifier. This is important during humid months and in damp spaces like basements.
Check for leaks in your roof, walls or plumbing. Repair leaks as quickly as possible to control moistur
