Home and commercial properties can quickly become infested with mold at the slightest invasion of water problems. Ceiling leaks, pipe leaks, in-home flooding or outdoor flooding can bring water into a structure, sometimes without you being aware of a problem. Mold grows quickly and spreads fast when it is not taken care of, especially in our Monterey Bay Area Climate .
In as little as 48-72 hours of a water damage problem, mold can start taking over.
Mold is often found in damp, humid places like attics, basement floors and walls, window-sills and in the bathroom. If you are seeing spots of mold on your ceiling or in your window-sill, chances are that you are seeing only a small fraction of the entire problem. When the mold is visible on surface areas, you can almost guarantee that there is a bigger problem underneath.
Mold can be a serious problem if it is not remediated the right way. Cleaning and scrubbing mold off surface areas will only take away the surface problem. Until the source of the mold is found and eliminated, your property will continuously experience mold damage.
Mold damage doesn’t only affect and damage the structure of your home, it can cause serious health implications for infants, senior citizens, and other people that experience respiratory illnesses.
There are different types of mold and the methods of removal needed may vary. We will recommend an Industrial Hygienist for air quality testing – they’re certified to test and identify types of mold. They prepare a protocol for us, which we follow to remediate the mold.
