Maybe you’ve been reading and hearing about the potential health risks that come from living around mold. Or maybe you’re having strange upper respiratory symptoms that you fear could be mold-related. Either way, if it turns out there is mold contamination where you live, the only way to solve the problem is with a mold home inspection followed by residential mold remediation services.
MoldRemovalPhiladelphia.net provides these services throughout the Philadelphia metro region, and the number of homes that have moderate to critical levels of mold contamination is alarming. Mold home inspection in our part of the country often turns up mold because of the overall humidity we experience. Mold loves moisture. Coupled with poor air circulation in a room or a whole house, and you have a prime breeding ground for mold.
When we perform a mold home inspection, we use special tests. Why? Because mold can be present in an environment but not visible to the human eye. Why is mold dangerous if you can’t even see it? Because mold is a living organism – it grows and spreads. Before long, you will be able to see it, and then you have a very big problem.
When doing mold inspections, we cover the entire home, looking closely at the most likely places such as basements, attics, beneath sinks, etc. We also determine if mold has gotten into heating and air conditioning vents. If so, the mold could grow and grow and never be detected as it blows spores out into living areas of the house.
If mold is found, residential mold remediation is begun. This is an involved process where we first completely seal off the contaminated area(s) to protect against mold spreading as we work.
Our technicians wear protective clothing to safeguard themselves and use a variety of techniques and equipment to kill mold. Equipment includes foggers, air pumps, electric sanders and sandpaper, grinders and heavy wire brushes. After residential mold remediation is finished, we spray surfaces that contained mold with a solution that prevents its return and is safe for humans to be around.
It’s been shown time and time again that mold can be dangerous to humans.
