How the Mold in Your Roseville Home Can Be Affecting Your Health
With wet months ahead, mold can easily enter your home through windows, vents, and even through your pet. Once inside your home it can grow anywhere there is moisture and unless proper precautions are in place it can cause an infestation that can lead to respiratory illnesses. We have trained, certified, and experienced mold remediation on staff to implement these safeguards in your home.
In as little as 48 hours, mold can be growing into colonies that may produce allergens and irritants inside your Roseville home that can cause respiratory tract symptoms, coughing, and wheezing. Allow us into your home to tailor a mold remediation plan for your current outbreak and to minimize future outbreaks.
SERVPRO crews use a protocol approved by the EPA to manage mold damage effectively with a three-prong attack on mold damage. First, we find and contain all evident mold colonies. We keep uncontaminated spaces mold-free by misting the existing mold to prevent it from floating through the air, erecting physical barriers, or using negative air pressure machines during clean up. Second, the mold is removed completely, including porous items it infiltrated. We encase and dispose of the actual mold colonies according to local codes. Third, spores stirred up settle and we wipe them down with a detergent solution or vacuum up using HEPA filters.
Once the mold damage is removed and areas cleaned, the final step is to eradicate the moisture problem that fed the spores. Our staff will inspect for plumbing leaks, clogs in HVAC drainage systems, condensation around AC units or refrigerators, and other sources of water. Abatement of the water problems is the best protection against future mold damage. We test for moisture levels and recommend reduction of air humidity levels of over 60 percent using ventilation, dehumidifiers, or a combination of strategies.
