Catch Mold Before it Causes Damage with Mold Remediation
It’s one of a homeowner’s worst fears: unseen mold growing in the dark corners of a basement, under floors or hidden in the walls. Mold can begin to grow from spores in as little as two days, and it isn’t always easy to detect. It’s most likely the indicator of a damp environment within the home, which can lead to other structural problems, and mold itself can present a host of health risks – especially for young children and the elderly. Leaking pipes, windows or roofs, damp basements, tightly sealed buildings that trap moisture in (common with new construction) and homes with poor ventilation are all environments where mold is likely to grow. Many times you can see mold with the naked eye, but even if you can’t, there are indicators that point to needing a mold inspection by professionals.
How do you know if you need a mold inspection?
- Water stains on ceilings or walls
- Discoloration of walls, ceiling or baseboards
- Musty and damp odors
- Standing water from pipe leaks, leaking air conditioners
- Unusual allergic reactions
- Respiratory infections
- Water damage from a fire
How can mold remediation help?
Mold remediation services from ServiceMaster at Bakersfield will complete a water and humidity assessment and create a water damage repair plan if appropriate. Once the water damage or humidity problem has been resolved, ServiceMaster at Bakersfield will work on a mold containment plan based on the mold removal requirements. If the mold damage is in a small area (under 100 sq. ft.), or the amount of mold is limited, a smaller containment mold remediation program could be sufficient. For large mold damage areas (greater than 100 sq. feet), full containment is recommended based on how extensive the mold damage is.
Do NOT attempt to remove mold yourself. Mold removal is a job that’s best left to the professionals.
