Unfortunately, mold damage in Rancho Bernardo isn’t far behind. Clinging to the underside of walls and floorboards are colonies of mold, with mold spores traveling through your ventilation system. When this happens health problems can arise: allergies, asthma and even weakened immune systems. That’s why whenever you’ve experienced a significant water leak, you should contact a mold remediation specialist to properly gauge where the mold lives.
Even without significant water damage, however, microscopic mold spores are found everywhere, both indoors and outdoors, which is why it’s impossible to completely remove all mold from your home. Water damage alone isn’t enough to bring mold into your home since it can travel through AC/heating systems, and can attach to clothing and even to your pets. Mold remediation technicians, however, can remove enough mold to bring the amount of spores to healthy, manageable levels.
All mold needs to thrive is a plenty of water and moisture. If you have an unseen leak somewhere, you can be sure that mold will be establishing a colony in that area. Sometimes you may be able to detect it using your nose since it has a strong, musty odor. Mold spores can adversely affect your health in many ways and so when mold is suspected, mold damage in Rancho Bernardo must be dealt with immediately. Understand that mold spores can begin to form within 24 hours of a water emergency.
Mold remediation involves the utilization of high velocity drying equipment, vacuums (with HEPA filters) designed for spore collection, and anti-microbial treatments which should prevent any future mold growth. Often materials like drywall and flooring are so damaged by mold that they must be replaced. To locate and inspect materials for mold infestation, thermal imaging and infrared and borescopes may be used. The technicians will completely document the damage and will even take photographs to submit to your insurance company. Once the remediation is complete, technicians will search for signs of any recurrent water damage, and any residual moldy odors or visible mold, ensuring that the cleanup was successful.
