Chicago Mold Remediation by ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons

At ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons, we care about our neighbors, especially those who suffer from cancer. Many cancer patients are more susceptible to many types of infections, including some caused by mold in the home. With our mold remediation services in Chicago, IL, those battling cancer and their caregivers can rest assured that their residence is safe from toxic mold contamination.

Why Mold is More Dangerous for Cancer Patients
Chemotherapy and some cancer symptoms can weaken the immune system of a person. If someone with a weakened or compromised immune system is living with mold in their residence, they may require hospitalization. For some people, a mold infection can be fatal. Patients with the greatest risk are those who are treated for cancer of the lymph nodes, blood, or bone marrow. Also, you may be at risk as a healthy resident. If you have had a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, or take medicine that weakens the immune system, a mold infection in your home can cause complications with your health.

Mold Infection Symptoms
Mold infection symptoms can include:
• Skin irritation
• Runny or stuffy nose
• Fever
• Coughing
• Wheezing
• Body aches
• Headaches
• Chills fatigue
If you have these symptoms you should see your doctor, especially if you are receiving treatment as a cancer patient.

More than Scrubbing with Bleach
Mold can lurk anywhere. Simply cleaning a moldy spot will not fix a mold problem. Mold must be removed from the walls and the air, and then conditions in the home must be stabilized so that it does not return again. Our mold remediation services include removal of affected drywall or flooring, drying moist areas, using an anti-microbial application, sealing the affected area, performing air purification and filtration, and much more.

After our mold remediation services, your home will be a healthier, mold-free environment. If you are a cancer patient or care giver, contact ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons if you suspect your Chicago home has a mold problem and get back on track to being healthy.
