Mold of any kind is considered a problem

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

When you find mold in  your home it's cause for concern. Mold of any kind is considered a problem and something you should deal with right away. When homeowners find mold in their homes and report it to their insurance company, the process is often called "mold damage restoration." This is the process of restoring your property to its condition pre-mold.

There are certain things that must be done to make sure the mold damage is truly repaired and you won't have a problem in the future. Here are a few:

  1. Identify the location: where is does the mold originate? Is it growing somewhere you can't see?
  2. Find out if it is dangerous. Testing the area where mold is growing is a necessary step to restoring your property and easing your mind.
  3. Call us to clean it well. Small areas of mold can usually be cleaned by the homeowner with a disinfectant. But if it's more than 10 square feet, you should consider hiring professional help.

I have mold in my house,what does it mean?

Mold on house kitchen

      Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to its natural or baseline level. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

If your home or business has a mold problem, we can inspect and assess your property and use our specialized training, equipment, and expertise to remediate your mold infestation.

Check your cabinets for mold

Mold under sink

Some places just seem more prone to black mold damage. One of the places are cabinets. It can also be found in a kitchen sink, bathroom vanity or your mud sink next to your washer and dryer. Have you ever wondered why?  The truth is mold loves anywhere where it can find food to eat and yes, your cabinets are the perfect place to do so. They have a nice ambient temperature and there is too much moisture. Your cabinets aren’t going anywhere and you obviously want to keep your home comfortable (it just so happens our ideal comfort level in terms of temperature coincides with the ideal temperatures that promote mold growth), so it’s the water/moisture variable that must be controlled.
