Your Clackamas Mold Remediation Experts
Mold growth is only possible when there is a source of water, or a source of food present. Building materials found in your home like plywood, drywall, carpet, and carpet padding are food for molds. In less than 24 hours mold growth can begin. Steve’s Home Restoration can test and eliminate mold from your property using our specialized equipment. Unfortunately, not all molds are easy to detect. Some mold growth at your Clackamas home or office may be impossible to detect without proper training and equipment. Musty smells and visible mold growth are some of the more obvious signs that your home or business may have a mold issue, but did you know mold can also exist inside walls, in the air and in hard to spot nooks and crannies? This is exactly why our mold damage experts are pleased to offer complete mold testing and check-up services. Our technicians will test your property for mold growth with all the latest tools and techniques, accurately determining what, if any, kind of mold problems your property may have. Our mold removal technicians will use the test results to formulate a customized mold removal plan specific to your properties’ mold issues. Although DIY kits are offered, we highly recommend using a professional mold testing service in Clackamas for the most accurate results.
Mold Causes & Removal
The most common cause for mold damage is a result of unaddressed water damage. If you discover mold in your home or office you should contact a professional restoration service immediately. Mold damage can be a serious hazard to anyone’s health that comes in contact with it. Mold can begin to grow within two hours of water damage, so make sure you have your home tested for mold after any natural disaster. In order to detect specific types of mold you should hire a trained professional. While it may not seem like it, mold testing is an extremely delicate process. Contact Steve’s Home Restoration to have your Clackamas home or office tested for mold.
Mold Testing & Why It Is Necessary
If during our testing our techs discover that your home has mold, our team will stop its growth completely and remove it from your home immediately. You aren’t in the clear once the mold is removed from your home just yet. There are a few extra precautions that need to be taken after the mold is removed to ensure the your home stays mold free. Make sure you address any water damage immediately, and report any severe issues as soon as they happen. Renting a dehumidifier is another precaution to make sure that there is no moisture left in your home.
Potential Health Risks of Mold Damage
There are some very common effects that result from constant exposure to mold, such as suffering from a runny nose, watery eyes, persistent sneezing, itching, congestion, and breathing issues. Mold can cause allergic reactions that range from mild to serious. Health issues and negative reactions will continue to get worse if the mold is allowed to continue to grow. Over time you and your family can suffer from infections of the ear, nose and throat if the water damage and mold was not removed properly from your home.
Serious illnesses can happen if your home is riddled with black mold. You, or your family, can develop loss of memory along with serious respiratory problems and even brain damage. The serious conditions can be a result of simply coming into contact with black mold or touching it. The longer that mold is allowed to remain in your home, the more dangerous it becomes. It must be removed quickly by hiring a professional team of trained specialists who know how to deal with this and take the necessary steps. If one of your family pets ingests or comes in contact with mold, contact a veterinarian and schedule a visit ASAP.
