Does your home or office smell stale and stuffy even after you clean? Mold and mildew issues are common in areas of high humidity or in homes and businesses that have experienced water damage. Regardless of the severity, water damage can cause mold and mildew to contaminate your property. It could be a residual effect in the aftermath of a disaster. If you’ve recently experienced water damage, the smell of mold and mildew buildup probably isn’t going anywhere without some work. These types of odors are likely to seep into the ceilings, floors and walls, causing odors to linger until the underlying issues are dealt with.
The first step in the odor control process is an inspection by a professional technician from ServiceMaster of Buncombe County, who will assess your property in order to determine whether or not there are harmful bacteria or molds present. High risk areas, like kitchen and bathroom cabinets or air vents, will be thoroughly inspected in order to find the source of the odor. However, a more comprehensive inspection may be necessary if the origin of the odor is not found during the initial inspection, because mold and other odors are prone to hide under floors and inside of walls.
After the source of the odor is found, our technicians will either clean, repair or remove the areas affected. If mold is detected, all flat, solid surfaces will need to be thoroughly cleaned and all absorptive items will need to be removed entirely.
Once the cause is determined and addressed, the odor will desist. However, if the source of odors is not found and dealt with, the smell is likely to return.
Mold can often become airborne during the process of cleaning, and many strains are toxic and can be harmful if breathed in, especially to children, pets, the sick and the elderly. Mold remediation, as well as non-mold odor control, has the potential to be very dangerous. That is why it is something that is best left to the professionals.
