In most homes in Amherst, mold is a big issue, but many people do not realize it is a problem. Everyone looks in the obvious places like under the sink, at the shower curtain, or in the basement when they think mold could be an issue, but mold can grow just about anywhere the conditions are right.

Finding mold and mold damage in your Amherst home requires immediate attention, so the growth does not continue to spread throughout your home. Mold can even cause health effects, so it is essential you ask for the assistance of a professional mold remediation company right away. Our team is ready 24/7 to help you, and with our training and tools, we can have the mess cleaned up for you quickly.

When we arrive at your home, we assess the situation and how severe the mold infestation is. We always use protective gear when it comes to cleaning up the mold to protect all our staff. SERVPRO workers wear eye protection and chemical resistant gloves and have various respirators available depending on how severe the infestation is. For small areas, we can use an N95 or greater filter respirator, while a half-mask respirator is used for larger contaminations. Fore extensive contaminations a full-face respirator can be used, along with a full body suit.

There are one thousand types of mold which can be found growing in homes. One of the most common types is aureobasidium. It can grow on painted and wooden services and develops in a black, brown, or pink color. Cladosporium can grow not just in warm conditions but in the cold as well. It frequently grows in indoor materials like upholsteries, carpets, and fabrics. You can find it inside cupboards as well and under floorboards. It is either olive-green or brown.

Mucor grows in larger patches and is usually white or greyish. It can be found closer to air conditioning machines and HVAC systems. Damp carpets can also offer a conducive spot for the growth of Mucor spores. Ulocladium grows well in wet areas and water. It usually is dark in color and can grow in homes that have undergone severe water damage in places like bathrooms, basements, kitchens, and windows in high condensation.
