After weeks of helping home and business owners in Georgia with cleanup from Hurricane Michael, ServiceMaster By Mason’s Technician, Jeff Moriarty, has returned to Rhode Island! He spent weeks helping with water and mold cleanup and mitigation needs, to restore properties including Pearlie’s Women & Men’s Apparel retail store in Donalsonville GA. Besides providing water cleanup & restoration services, he also helped with needed demolition and reconstruction, emergency generator power, and mold cleanup & removal.

When a Connecticut school discovered mold at their facility, ServiceMaster By Mason responded quickly! Owners Ryan Mason & Phil Mason led a team of our professional Technicians to thoroughly clean classrooms, hallways, stage and other areas affected by mold growth, including the multi-purpose room, where mold had spread to ceilings and 21 ft walls. Our Technicians donned the appropriate gear and harnesses before using the scissor lifts to remove mold from increased heights. Our team removed content from classrooms to clean in unaffected areas, packing items into hundreds of boxes. We created containment chambers to isolate the affected areas and prevent mold growth from spreading to non-affected areas. Wearing the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), our Technicians HEPA vacuumed mold spores, thoroughly cleaned and sanitized all affected areas, and used an anti-microbial spray to prevent future mold growth.
