Why You Should Hire a Mold Removal Expert

If you do have water damage within your property, hiring a professional mold remediation expert is key. Our mold remediation San Diego technicians understand that mold growth can be visible, however in some cases indoor mold growth may not be as obvious. For example, mold can grow behind drywall or wallpaper, under carpets or pads, or even inside ductwork and the drip pan of your indoor air handling unit.

If you’re unsure if you have mold in your home or business, or the mold is visible and you need to test the type of mold, the first step is to have a certified mold removal expert visit you to perform an inspection. Once tested, our mold remediation San Diego technician at Bill Howe Restoration & Flood Services can provide you with results and possible actions to consider.

For mold remediation, San Diego home and business owners have chosen Bill Howe for decades. Our technicians are equipped with protective gear including disposable coveralls and a respirator to protect them from the mold, and we set up a containment room to prevent the mold from spreading to other areas of your home or business and creating health risks. After, the mold will carefully be removed from your home in a safe, effective manner that reduces the number of spores from becoming airborne and negative air scrubbers are set up to purify the air within the containment room. Further, an anti-microbial agent will be applied to the surface, and a clearance test will be issued to ensure all affected areas have been cleaned and are no longer a threat.

Common Causes of Mold in Homes and Businesses

There are a variety of conditions that may cause mold and mold spores to develop in your home or commercial property. Of course, water and moisture are the leading cause of toxic mold and spores developing. Keeping your indoor environment free of moisture and spores will prove to be most helpful in keeping mold at bay. Humidity and moisture can develop if there is a water leak or standing water that is not fixed in a timely manner. Our mold remediation San Diego specialists can perform restorations while addressing any water damage that has occurred. Eliminating any causes where water may be left standing or stagnant helps with keeping humidity and mold at bay.

Another common cause of mold in homes and businesses is lack of sunlight. UV rays from the sunlight eliminate mold spores and prevent the spores from spreading throughout your property. While it would not be feasible to have sunlight light your entire home, have Bill Howe Heating & Air install a UV Light to your existing central heating & air system to help eliminate mold and spores from the air circulating throughout your property. Sunlight also helps to dry up any moisture or water. By having a UV Light or air filter, you are helping to keep spores from creating a problem in the future.

Finally, the last common cause of mold is temperature. Keeping your home below 71 degrees Fahrenheit helps to keep spores and mold from developing. In tandem with keeping the humidity levels between 30% – 50%, maintaining the temperature and humidity throughout your property prevents toxic mold from developing and the need for mold remediation.

How Mold Can Affect Your Health

Toxic mold can create a plethora of health risks if not addressed. Mold and mildew can create respiratory issues for those that reside within the property, particularly those who suffer from asthma. By eradicating spores, mold and mildew from the affected areas, you are helping to keep environmental toxins from creating health risks or worsening any preexisting symptoms. If a professional mold remediation expert determines that mold remediation is necessary, new building materials may be used to ensure that no toxic mold or spores remain in the affected areas.

Mold Remediation Costs in San Diego

After your initial inspection, the scope of work will determine the costs of mold remediation and restoration services. Depending on the extent of mold infestation, if the spores have developed into toxic mold or black mold, how much water damage has occurred, the costs may vary. Insuring your home is free of water, moisture and is professionally eradicated, be sure to hire a professional with IICRC certification to keep your home safe and to safeguard from any additional damage from occurring.

Kathy B.

We have used Bill Howe Plumbing for many years anytime we have an emergency plumbing issue, because we trust this company to respond quickly in sending out reliable employees and will give us an accurate diagnosis. Bill Howe Plumbing is the only company we call for help.

Our upstairs bathroom toilet flooded, causing water to flood down onto our kitchen ceiling, causing water damage in both rooms. Within an hour of calling Bill Howe, Carlos Paredes, EMS Lead Technician arrived to assess the flood damage. He quickly found the source of the flood and presented us with a clear water damage remediation plan. We had met Carlos earlier this year when our water heater flooded our laundry room and he was sent out to evaluate the water damage. We knew we were in good hands again when Carlos arrived for this emergency, because we knew him to be trustworthy, he communicated each step of the process clearly in a way for us to know exactly how the damage was going to be fixed and made us feel we were right in calling Bill Howe.

Bill Howe / Carlos did great job remediating kitchen / dining area after water damage. Very professional, courteous, efficient. Always showed up on time. Did excellent work. Kept me in loop each step of way. All of the workers showed great attention to detail and high respect for my property. Definitely would use them again!

Bill Howe Plumbing is a life saver! Thank you Michael, our plumber! We had a leak, a big leak, 500,000 gallons over the last 4 months. Michael was able to find it and fix it within 2 hours! Honestly! Now we will have Bill Howe Remediation and HVAC come to repair the damages.

Ruth W.

Best plumbing service I have used. We had a shower faucet leak that we didn’t know about until water came pouring through the ceiling into the living room. Bill Howe’s plumber, Tris, was there immediately, carefully located the leak and was able to stop further damage. Within an hour, the flood remediators came and had their fans set up to prevent mold. As the moisture was extensive, they were meticulous in locating anywhere that had been damaged. Joseph was particularly great in making certain every bit of moisture went away. Each person who came was polite, neat, respectful and helpful. When we were finally able to dry out the house, Bill Howe also had a remodeling crew that came in and returned my house to almost as good as new. Over the three weeks, every service person appeared when they said they would and did what they said they would, in spades. It is so nice to be able to depend on a good company, particularly when there is an unexpected disaster. Will use them for all of my plumbing needs in the future!

During the Labor Day holiday weekend, we had a kitchen flood that not only damaged the kitchen, but also leaked through two walls, and was even pouring to the outside of the home. This is our rental home, so by the time our tenants called us when they discovered the leak, we responded to see how big the leak was and if we could stop it, and slow down the damage.

We called a couple of plumbing services first because we had a home warranty company, but it was clear when the first plumber arrived that he was not going to be able to handle this call. Bill Howe was recommended to us, and we were told, these guys are expensive, but they are good! This was truly an underestimation, I was skeptical, but when we saw our investment home getting soggy, we made the call. I’ve already written a review about the Plumber that we got with Bill Howe, He was excellent! See my prior review about Mike from Bill Howe, but once the water is stopped, and the pipes are closed off, what do you do about all the soggy carpet, floors, walls, and cabinets… Well in the humidity of Summer in San Diego, just opening the windows and letting the sun dry it up is not a practical option, it’s not going to work. Once the plumber was done, a remediation team came, and essentially there job is to find all the areas that are wet, and cut out what can not be dried out, like drywall, that particle board inside kitchen cabinets…that’s right, they may look fancy on the outside, but chances are that the box portions are just pressed wood that will absorb water like a sponge, and then forever be deformed.

Francisco, and Juan were our remediation and demo team, and these guys were extremely professional, guiding us through the trenches that were once our walls. There was a lot of work to be done over several days, both the guys were always on time, kept the area isolated and safe for our tenants, and kept us informed of all the work they needed to perform. We are very happy that these guys were our remediation team. Thanks to Francisco and Juan, you guys really do great work, and I appreciate it!!

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
