"I want a company for mold and mildew remediation"

Water leakage from ice dams has caused mold in my home. Need a company for mold remediation in Massachusetts. Someone who has experience in mold and remediation, especially with toxic black mold! I have heard that it should be done by expert mold removers who have experience in mold abatement.

I'm sorry to hear that you may have mold! It's a terrible and potentially harmful thing to let into your house!

When my family moved into our condo here in Cambridge (MA) there was a distinct "musty" smell in the basement storage area. Normally, we wouldn't have concerned ourselves about it, but since our laundry machine is down there, I was often in the basement with my children.

We decided to have a mold inspector and remediation service out and they found mold under the carpet pad and behind the washer and drier, ick. I wish we would have thought of doing a mold inspection before we bought the condo so the seller would have been responsible for the remediation!

Anyhow, it certainly gave me peace of mind to know that we had dealt with the problem. Now I don't fear bringing my kids down into the basement with me when I do laundry, and since it's kind of spooky down there that's a good thing :)

What is black mold and how do I remove it: a video

Black mold is disgusting (watch the video for some extreme cases!)

A video of a mold remediation specialist who dealt with mold removal after Hurricane Ike in southern Texas.

Removed all water damaged materials, dried out the building materials and removed visible mold with a soda blaster.

dangerous black mold
What is Mold? If your home has a strong "musty" smell it's not because it is old. The smell is mold which is growing somewhere in your house. For some people, this is not a problem, but for others, it can cause serious allergic or asthmatic reactions.

Finding mold. Finding mold in your home can sometimes be very easy. Pull back the carpet pad in your basement or check the baseboards and you can often find black mold in plain site. If this fails, you may need to hire a professional mold inspector to come to your home and do a more thorough inspection. The inspector will do a full visual check of your home, and will typically do an air sample test. They will also determine what type of mold you have.

Dealing with mold. Once the source and type of mold are identified, you can either clean the hard-surface areas yourself with a mixture of 1 gallon water and 1 cup of bleach. Any porous materials with mold (carpet, carpet pad, drapes) should be discarded.

Preventing mold. Mold needs a damp, humid environment to thrive. Make sure you drier is properly exhausting outside and run a humidifier in the problem areas to keep the relative humidity below 55 percent. A high quality HEPA air filter will also remove many of the dust and mold spores from the air.
