Northwest ServiceMaster Provides Mold Removal Services for St. Paul Homes & Businesses

This may well be one of the top summers for rain in the St. Paul, MN area, and given the degree of moisture we’ve experienced, the risk for mold inside any type of enclosure is higher than normal. If you’ve seen any kind of drips, spills or standing water, or even sensed dampness in your basement, it’s not unreasonable to assume you have mold in your home. Northwest ServiceMaster has the training and expertise to locate and remove mold colonies from homes and businesses in St. Paul, MN and surrounding communities.

Mold, neither plant nor animal, is a rather amazing fungus that can help save lives (it’s the source of penicillin) or make them miserable by afflicting immune systems and inflaming allergies. If a mold spore is present in your home it will bide its time until there is appropriate moisture and food. Then it will spread in colonies. Moisture is pretty available these days with the rainfall, but it can also come from condensation on water pipes, overflow from air conditioner condensing reservoirs, or simply dampness due to excess humidity, making your St. Paul home a candidate for mold and mold removal.

Mold can grow in a wide temperature range, so cold basements and hot rooms aren’t an issue for the colonies. Food is usually also plentiful as mold will thrive on almost anything containing organic carbon, including wood, paper, wallboard, or cloth fibers. According to the University of Florida, there is enough food in soap scum or oil from your skin for mold to flourish upon! Even if you don’t see the telltale black or green smudges of mold, you may smell mustiness, especially in your basement rooms. Let Northwest ServiceMaster know you’re interested in mold damage and restoration services for your home or business in St. Paul, Oakdale, Shoreview, Arden Hills, or nearby communities. We’ll take care of your mold colonies for good.
