Worried About Mold? SERVPRO is Here to Help.

SERVPRO of New London can safely and properly remediate mold in your home or business. We've made our name as one of the best mold remediation companies in New London County because of the hard work of our team. Many other mold "removal" companies are wrong in saying they can remove all mold - and that's because it's everywhere! You can be sure that SERVPRO of New London has the correct training and certifications to truly understand mold in your house.

Mold will grow and become an issue only after being exposed to moisture. That's why mold loves to grow in damp, dark places, like basements, under sinks, behind refrigerators, in stacks of wet or damp papers & clothes, under wet carpets, and more.

Signs of Mold

  1. Strong, musty odors in areas of your home may indicate mold.
  2. Water damage or water leaks. This creates the perfect, moist environment for mold to grow.
  3. Past flooding or storm damage. If your home has experienced flooding, mold may become an issue.
  4. Persistent allergies. If you feel that you are having health problems that could be an allergic reaction to mold, but have no visible mold or other allergens in your home, consider having mold testing done.
  5. Visible mold. There are many types of mold that are different colors, sizes, and may grow in different ways.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
