Are You and Your Family Exposed to Mold?
You may have written off your itchy eyes, coughing and sneezing as seasonal allergies, but the truth is you may be dealing with an even bigger problem: Mold.
Mold is not a new problem. Every house, every environment has mold spores, but mold becomes an issue when the mold spores in the home are greater than what is found outside.
Mold is one of the more threatening of organisms and SERVPRO of Suffolk/Smithfield/Franklin takes it very seriously. The danger lies in the fact the mold is often not easy to find. It likes to hide and can be harbored in any cool, damp place inside your home or place of business. Most people only think of showers and bathrooms as harboring mold, but truthfully, it can hide in attics, crawl spaces, closets, even inside the walls or under the floor.
