Mold Removal in Rochester, MN
ServiceMaster of Rochester follows the IICRC S520 standard for the removal of mold from a building or property. This Standard of Care for the restoration and mold remediation industry provides guidelines for the removal of mold from surfaces. Bacteria and fungi other than mold can also grow in a water-damaged area or any area with proper conditions for growth.
FACT: plain water has no odor! When odors are present, this means that water has contacted a material or organism that can release volatile compounds or, in everyday terms, odor. This does not mean that mold is present, but it could indicate that something biological is growing. Surface fungi can begin to grow at as little as 16% wood moisture content. Of course, as the percent of moisture climbs, other things start to grow, which adds to dry rot or even wet rot in wood. Controlling the moisture of the environment is most important in eliminating growth opportunities for microbial growth. This can be as simple as running an air exchange system or adding a dehumidifier to a damp area of your home or office.
