Post-Infestation Clean Up: Mold Removal and Duct Cleaning in Exton, PA

ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration Helps You Get to the Root of the Problem

We would like to talk today about the sticky summer subject of vermin and insect infestation, as well as commonly overlooked details and needs of post-extermination.

If you are in the process of preventing insect or vermin infestation in your home or business, remember to control your indoor humidity. Humidity above 70%, combined with temperatures above 70 degrees, is a dangerous combination that can lead to mold growth in a matter of a few days. While this may seem impossible to avoid at times in Pennsylvania, just remember that the dehumidifier is your friend. If your HVAC unit includes humidity control, be sure to alter the settings as needed to keep your interior air dry enough to prevent mold growth.

What does mold growth have to do with infestation? Many insects eat mold or live in conditions made possible by mold, and an outbreak of mold in your home or business makes another infestation of, say, booklice or cockroaches, far more likely.

Is mold becoming a problem in your home or business? ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration can help with mold removal in Exton, PA. Mold has many negative health impacts on its own, and it can lead to worse infestations. Call today to prevent further problems.

While mold prevention and mold removal can help, sometimes the worst happens and you need to hire an exterminator. Remember, though, that if the reason for the infestation remains after the exterminator leaves, the infestation will re-occur. Avoid clutter, papers or laundry on the floor, and clean up food messes immediately while keeping food sealed. This goes for commercial break rooms as well as residential kitchens! If you feel that you do not have the time to devote to keeping these areas spotless, hiring professional janitorial services serving Exton, PA now is less of a hassle than needing to keep calling the exterminator.

The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that you have your HVAC ductwork cleaned if you have recently had an infestation or insects or vermin, since their bodies and excrement can continue to pollute your air long after they have been killed. We at ServiceMaster Professional Cleaning and Restoration know that many folks skip this recommended yet crucial step, but our experts in duct cleaning in Exton, PA are just a phone call away. After all, if you want the impacts of infestation gone, don’t stop once the unwelcome vermin are dead. Protect yourself, your family, your employees and customers by getting rid of any possible remaining vectors for disease or illness.
