Mold is a naturally occurring organism, but it’s one you don’t have to share your living quarters with. Call Midwest Clean Air of Omaha, Nebraska, to remediate the mold problem in your home, and breathe freely again.
Mold needs two things to grow: darkness and dampness. Sunlight kills mold. But the sun’s rays don’t often reach your basement, closets or bathrooms, where mold tends to proliferate.
These spaces also often have poor ventilation. With small — or no — windows, air circulation is at a minimum in these areas. Good exhaust fans can help in the bathroom, but your basement and closets may need a dehumidifier or some containers of Damp-Rid to keep mold at bay. And even these may not be enough.
Another reason homes often suffer from mold problems is because of leaks. Sometimes it’s a big leak, like a burst pipe or a hole in the roof from a tree branch. But other times, the leak is so small that you don’t even know about it.
The drainpipe underneath your sink may drip intermittently. You might have a pinhole leak in a supply line. Your gutters may have dammed up during a winter snowstorm and caused water to back up into your attic.
Whatever the reason, if you have mold, you have a problem. Mold can make you and your family sick. It can cause a host of respiratory symptoms, including:
If you see mold anywhere in your home — on the walls, ceiling, floors or other areas — it’s important to get it cleaned up right away, before it does damage to your home’s structure or your health.
But if you don’t see mold, it doesn’t necessarily mean you are free and clear. If you and your family frequently feel sick and lethargic, it could be due to unseen mold. It can be in the walls, attic, crawlspace or even the air.
Call Midwest Clean Air. We’ll come out and test the surfaces in your home or commercial building — and the air too — for the presence of mold. If we discover mold, our first course of action is to get rid of anything moldy that can’t be saved, including furniture, textiles and building materials.
Next, we clean what’s left with a special oxygenated solution that kills the mold but does no harm to you, your family or other occupants of your building.
Lastly, we make sure you understand the source of your issues with mold so that you can correct the problem.
Don’t spend another day sharing your home or office with mold. Call Midwest Clean Air, and start the cleanup process now.
