Preventing Mold Growth
We often see mold forming in buildings that are suffering from water damage. Even something as small as an overflowing toilet that saturates your carpet can cause mold growth if not cleaned up correctly. Leaking pipes, damaged roofs, and excess humidity can all contribute to a mold problem. Additionally, if your property has flooded or experienced a severe rainstorm that destroyed the exterior of your house, allowing water in, you will need to work with professionals to repair the damage and dry out your property.
Mold is often found:
- In damaged drywall
- Under sinks, such as bathroom and kitchen sinks
- In water-damaged furniture and soft furnishings
- In basements, attics, and crawlspaces
- In water-logged carpets and other water damaged flooring
- Around plumbing fixtures
Signs I May Have Mold in My Home
It’s important to take mold seriously. If left to it’s own devices it can spread, damage your home and possibly even hurt your health. It’s important to remove the mold as soon as you identify where it is. At American Craftsman Restoration, we have 5 signs to look for in order to avoid this unwanted guest in your home.
- Odd Smell – One of the most common signs that your home has mold is that very recognizable musty or earthy smell that mold produces. This may be the only warning you get letting you know that your home has a problem with mold. Contact our Santa Clarita mold removal team for help inspecting your home.
- Paint Blistering – Have you noticed that the paint on your walls is blistering? Often times when paint blisters, this is due to trapped moisture the paint and mold has started to grow underneath the paint, causing it to blister.
- Water Leaks – If your home has ever experienced a flood or had a water leak, the chance of mold growing where the water was before, is much higher. Mold is able to grow underneath floorboards, behind paint and wallpaper. If you suspect you have mold, check your walls and ceilings for any discoloration or stains, this is usually a good indicator that mold is present. Call our professional Santa Clarita mold removal technicians to help you identify if your home has mold.
- Breathing Issues – If you and your household seem to be short of breath or just are having trouble in general breathing in your home, this is a sign that your home may have mold. Mold spores can become airborne and enter into your lungs, making it more difficult to breathe.
- Severe Allergies at Home – Have you noticed that while in your home, you and your household have severe allergic reactions, but once you’ve left the allergies go away? This a big sign that mold is the culprit to these strong triggered responses. Typical symptoms of mold allergies are, itchy eyes, sneezing and runny nose.
Dealing with mold on your own can be difficult. Often, pinpointing the source of your water damage is challenging, and you are unlikely to remove all of the mold without the help of a professional. When you hire American Craftsman Restoration, we will inspect your property, create a moisture map, and uncover what is causing your mold problem. We will then provide you with a clear remediation plan.
Mold Remediation Services
Dealing with a mold problem is a detailed process. There are many moving parts and many things that must be done. First and foremost, the moisture problem needs to be addressed. We will need to identify the damaged area and repair it if you are dealing with faulty plumbing. If your mold problem started as a result of a flood, we would need to remove the water and dry out the affected area fully. We will then remove the mold, adhering to EPA standards. This usually involves spraying a mold killer over the affected area and then coming back to encapsulate the space to ensure that it does not grow back.
Signs you have a mold problem include:
- A musty or damp odor in your home
- Itchy eyes
- Difficulty breathing
- Cold-like symptoms that persist
- Aggravated throat
4 Myths About Mold Removal
1. Mold removal can be very cheap – When it comes to acquiring the proper equipment, insurance and worker’s compensation there isn’t going to be an ultra-cheap option when it comes to mold removal. And if one company is a lot cheaper than the rest, then they’re cutting necessary corners.
2. Mold removal removes all the mold – This is why the process is better described as mold remediation. If there is a Santa Clarita mold removal professional telling you that they’re removing all the mold then they’re simply not telling the truth.
3. Mold won’t come back after removal – There is no mold remediation expert that can assure anybody that mold won’t come back. That is up to how well you ventilate your home and rid yourself of any excess standing water.
4. No DIY mold removal – While our mold removal specialists will always be in to help when you call, there are also instances when you can help yourself. Make sure to wear gloves and a mask to protect yourself and use a disposable brush with over the counter mold cleaner.
