Q. – How much of a concern is mold?

Though rare, serious health conditions from exposure to fungi do occur. Prolonged exposure to certain types of mold can trigger asthma, cause allergic reactions, rashes and other respiratory complaints.

People can be more susceptible to a fungus when it is in a building. Infants are more susceptible to infection due to underdeveloped immune systems . The elderly tend to have weaker immune systems, which can make them vulnerable, too. Any water intrusion into a building should be handled quickly and professionally, to eliminate chances of potential harm. Partial drying of water intrusion and improper management can establish the perfect breeding ground for microbial growth.

What are some of the signs of mold contamination?

  • Visible mold growth
  • Musty or earthy odor that is most noticeable when entering a structure or room. Your nose will become desensitized to it in about 10 seconds.
  • Lengthy periods of high indoor humidity levels
  • Allergic reactions and headaches when within the environment

Molds can grow on practically any substance, if moisture is present. Swift attention to water damage or visible mold  often reduces the risk of the problem getting out of hand. Neglected water damage can easily turn into an extensive mold damage restoration project.

Q. – If I discover mold, what do I do?

Do not panic, but proceed with caution. Make sure you don’t aggravate the problem by making the spores airborne or spread them to uncontaminated areas. Call an Alliance professional for an assessment. Testing can determine the type of mold, but the bottom line is that the mold needs removing, no matter the species. A mold inspection may be necessary by a certified air quality specialist. These specialists will break the situation down and will even test the area post remediation to confirm the services are 100% complete and effective.

You can call on Alliance Certified Restoration for all your drying and mold remediation needs.

These include:

  • Inspection/Assessment of the cause and extent of the damage.
  • Health & Safety issues including containment and removal of contaminated materials. Protective clothing/respirators may be necessary during the remediation process.
  • Containment to prevent the spread of fungi to unaffected areas.
  • Mold remediation services, depending on the extent of the damage.
  • Clearance testing through an independent third party.

 

Q. – What can I do to prevent mold in my home?

Mold needs two main factors to grow: water and an organic food source.

  • Check your water bill – if water usage has increased noticeably this could be an indication of a water leak.
  • If you have had recent remodeling or construction – check roof, flashings, window seals, bathrooms and humidifiers regularly for signs of excess water.
  • Schedule regular inspections – HVAC and appliance drip pans, appliance water line connections, bathrooms, water heaters, windows and attics.
  • Make sure water removal and drying is handled properly, professionally and promptly in the event of flooding.
  • Water can seep under baseboards and into wall cavities, resulting in undetected mold growth.
  • If you have a small amount of visible mold that reoccurs after cleaning with a bleach and water solution, this could be an indication of ongoing water intrusion, which should be corrected immediately.
