Stop the spread of mold and the damage it causes in your home or business with our remediation services
Mold has no place indoors. In fact, it is one of the worst contaminants you can find in your home; so, when you find it where it shouldn’t be, your family’s health and your home’s overall structure can be affected. Flooding, leaky roofs, building-maintenance or indoor-plumbing problems can lead to interior mold growth if left unchecked. And, once mold growth begins, the spores can multiply rapidly affecting the entire property. For some, mold spores produce allergens and irritants that can cause health problems and create other damage.
Mold infestation can lead to:
- Damage to structures such as foundations, drywall, roofing, gutters, furnishings, HVAC systems and other areas
- Health problems that include breathing difficulties, aggravation of asthma symptoms, skin irritation, allergic reactions, headaches and more
Removing mold from your home is not a DIY project; it requires the knowledge and experience of a trained professional to do the job correctly. Mold is present almost everywhere, and its spores are microscopic, floating along in the air and entering your home through windows, doors and air conditioning and heating systems. They can enter your home even by hitching a ride on your clothing or pet. Mold spores thrive on moisture, and, when the conditions are right, can begin to grow within 48 hours; so, if you live in an area that is consistently humid of have experience exposure to water due to a flood or leaky plumping, you might have mold hiding in your home. Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth.
If you’re not sure if you have mold in your home, some things you should be on the lookout for are:
- Musty odors of mildew
- Dark spots on your walls, ceilings or floors
- Condensation on glass or metal surfaces due to high humidity levels
- Respiratory and allergy issues
If you think that your home or business has a mold problem, be sure to immediately call a professional like CleanTech by Allen Keith. Because mold may not always grow in one area, our highly trained, IICRC-certified technicians, who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to inspect your home, calculate how much contamination there is using advanced tools and processes and determine how to approach mold removal and cleanup to prevent the mold from spreading and becoming a larger issue.
Our goal is to clean up the mold growing within the home that homeowners are being exposed to; and, just because you can no longer see the mold, that doesn’t mean that it’s gone. To ensure that it is, we will revisit your home or business soon after remediation is complete to determine that the moisture problem has been taken care of and that there aren’t any signs of visible mold, mold-damaged materials or moldy odors.
