Mold Remediation, Removal and Cleaning
Mold growth can occur on the most common building surfaces such as sheetrock, wood, carpet, linoleum floor or on any organic material. Many building occupants and homeowners are becoming more and more aware of the health hazards associated with mold contamination. Growth can begin usually within 48 hours after the appropriate moisture content has been achieved. When a material is infested with mold, special care must be taken during the removal, cleaning, and remediation process, to contain, clean and prevent the unintentional spread of the mold spores.
Mold is a proven serious health risk. Many families wait until mold contamination is very high before acting to correct this problem. Do not wait. If your San Francisco, Bay Area home or building has had current or past water damage or leak, a mold inspection is recommended.
Various types of mold have been medically proven to cause many health issues, which include allergic reactions, watery, itchy eyes, a chronic cough, headaches or migraines, difficulty breathing, rashes, tiredness, sinus problems, nasal blockage and frequent sneezing. Mold can also damage furniture, destroy wood and compromise the integrity of structural materials such as beams, studs, and sub-floor. When a mold problem has been identified, it is important to address the problem, clean the mold as quickly as possible, to minimize exposure and material damage.
Mold will often grow in damp or wet areas indoors. Common sites for indoor mold growth include bathrooms, basements, areas around windows where moisture condenses, and near leaky water sources or sinks. Common causes of moisture problems include roof leaks, poor maintenance, condensation associated with high humidity or cold spots in the building, plumbing system failures or heavy rains, and slow leaks in plumbing systems.
