Why is mold such an issue?
Mold in itself isn’t a problem -- mold is actually everywhere both indoors and outside and can begin to grow in as little as 48 hours. Mold only becomes a problem when airborne spores come in contact with moisture and grow into a colony that can host bacteria, fungus and allergens linked to many adverse health conditions. Mold can also damage the structural integrity of homes and businesses. Because it can start growing in just 48 hours -- and grows quickly and easily from there -- mold can travel through the rest of the home, complicating the removal process and potentially resalability of the property.
What is mold remediation?
It’s important to mitigate a mold infestation as quickly as possible. Mold grows and spreads rapidly, and can quickly become a dangerous and expensive problem. Mold remediation is the process through which mold is identified and removed. The process varies among removal companies, but TruClean Home Services uses a safe, effective chemical-based approach backed by our TruClean Guarantee.
What is the mold remediation process?
There is no one size fits all approach to mold remediation, but the process generally involves:
- Contacting a removal specialist -- don’t go it alone
- Problem areas are inspected and damage assessed
- Mold containment
- Air filtration
- Mold is removed
- Contents and furnishings are cleaned
What are the benefits of mold remediation?
Mold is dangerous to the well-being of your family and your home, and delaying treating it can cause mild to serious health consequences. These ailments may include skin irritation, sore throat, wheezing, coughing, eye irritation and nasal congestion. In people with weak immune systems, such as the elderly and children, may also experience lung infections, obstructive lung disease and other major respiratory issues. Some molds such as black mold can be particularly dangerous.
Again, mold is common, but can quickly become a major household problem -- removing it quickly will curb the risk.
Do I need a professional for mold remediation?
Absolutely. Mold permeates the home, colonizing in ductwork, under sinks, in basements and septic systems and in other areas they you may not be able to see or reach. Mold remediation is a multifaceted process, with policies varying between states and across insurance policies.
If you see mold, smell a musty smell or are experiencing an increase in allergies, it’s time to get a professional opinion. Schedule a free estimate with TruClean Home Services today to get mold removed and ensure your home is clean and healthy.
