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. As noted, 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 restoration work while pinpointing any water damage that has occurred. Eliminating any causes where water may be left standing or stagnant helps with keeping moisture 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 San Diego Costs
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.
