When you have a mold infestation removing it can be a hassle. That’s why we’ve created a tip sheet just for you. By following these simple tips for mold removal, you’ll know what to do to get things back to normal.
Mold and mildew removal is essential following floods, leaks, broken water mains and other water related issues. In addition to ruining furniture, drywall, upholstery and more, floods and leaks can cause water damage that goes on destroying parts of your home slowly over time.
Finding any kind of mold in your home can be distressing. A 2003 study by the University of Arizona found that mold is pervasive in most homes (found in 100% of the homes tested in the study!) and that certain types of mold can lead to health problems like asthma and allergies. San Diego’s mold removal experts at Clean Earth Restorations can help you find out if the mold in your home is dangerous and needs to be removed.
San Diego has a big problem in that later half of spring and in the summer…mold. Especially mold in bathrooms. You might notice mold and mildew growing in your bathroom, particularly on the caulk used on your bathtub or shower. This is an even bigger problem for poorly ventilated areas, like in small apartments.
Why Does Mold and Mildew Grow on the Caulk?
Mold grows in humid areas where the spores can find sufficient moisture. The spores that reside in homes find themselves in the caulking of showers and bathtubs. They doe this because caulk is porous and can retain moisture. Poor ventilated bathrooms allow them to multiply freely in the dark and humid atmosphere.
