Are you concerned that you may have mold damage? San Diego is world-renown for its dry climate but that doesn’t mean that mold and mold damage are not a common problem.
The world “mold” sounds nice in the world of gourmet cheese, and even then it leaves something to be desired! Mold is a vital, naturally occurring, biological element in our world. It is part of the fungi family and, through its release of enzymes, breaks down organic matter (such as decomposing plants) and has been used in important ways such as in the making of penicillin. But it’s not something we want to have lurking in our homes (or businesses). Its presence can wreak havoc by destroying the materials our property are made of and causing numerous, sometimes deadly, health conditions.
Mold needs food, water and the right temperature (48F – 70F) to thrive. It feasts on components of wallboard, carpets and other common household furnishings and construction materials. Therefore, the only real way to control mold is to eliminate its water source.
Rooms or construction spaces that lack adequate ventilation to remove ambient humidity, leaky plumbing, and flooding are all water sources that can create conditions for mold to grow. Mold is identifiable from its musty odor and sometimes is visible. Its splotchy stains can be different colors depending on the type of mold. Unfortunately, mold often grows in areas we can’t see and goes undetected for too long, causing mold damage. Unchecked, mold can literally destroy your property.
If you suspect mold and especially if it is not visibly detectable you should arrange for an inspection by a professional specialized in mold detection and remediation. Once the presence of mold has been verified, a thorough removal process must be ensured.
