With all the rain that the San Diego area has received over the past month, concerns about mold growing in your home or business are real. Mold can grow anywhere where there is moisture. Soap and detergents can remove mold stains, but will not kill the mold. Clean Earth Restorations is a full service mold remediation company. We can determine if the mold in your home or business is dangerous and needs to be removed professionally.
Most of the time mold is harmless, but if you are allergic to mold, if you have asthma or other respiratory disorders or if the mold is extensive, you need to make sure to deal with your mold problem. In addition, if you own a business mold can create problems for your customers. The way to control indoor mold is to remove its source, and to make sure that it is completely removed.
Some tips for controlling and reducing mold growth include:
- Keep your home or workplace clean and vacuumed
- Remove or do not carpet bathrooms
- Make sure the building has adequate ventilation (this is very important)
- Use exhaust fans in the bathrooms and kitchen (it may be hard to remember at first, but once you get in the habit you’ll make a huge impact on reducing mold growth)
If there has been a lot of water damage or the area where mold is displaying is over 10 square feet, the Environmental Protection Agency recommends you hire a professional mold removal company to remove the mold, and that the company has a lot of experience with mold removal. Getting a professional mold remediation service that will get the job done right the first time is important, and will save you a lot of future headache.
Heating and Air Conditioning systems (HVAC) can become contaminated with mold. If you are concerned this might be an issue, we recommend consulting the EPA’s document “Should you have the air ducts in your home cleaned?”
