Why You Need To Keep Mold Out Of Your Home
Mold is rarely harmful at normal levels. But when the concentration of spores begins to rise, it becomes a health hazard. That’s why it’s essential to find any colonies and remove them from your home before they have the chance to spread.
Unfortunately, just because you don’t see mold doesn’t mean you don’t have a problem. It can grow just fine with little to no light. It is a living organism, so it does require food and water to survive – however, minimal amounts of both are enough to thrive. When your home’s relative humidity reaches 60%, that’s the perfect amount of moisture to allow mold growth.
Wood and drywall are excellent food sources and provide a nice hiding place that keeps you from quickly finding the colony. The most common areas for moldto increase are crawl spaces, air conditioner drip pans, and anywhere there is a leak.
We Troubleshoot Your Problem Before We Perform Mold Remediation
The truth is, mold is not the problem – it’s a symptom of the problem. We work hard to find out what’s causing it to grow. It needs very little in the way of water, so the source is often challenging to find. If we were to simply remove the mold, it would just come right back because we didn’t fix the underlying problem.
So, we search until we find the source – whether it’s obvious, like a leaking sink, or something hidden. We love a challenge and won’t stop until we’ve solved the puzzle.
We Don’t Use Harsh Chemicals That Make Things Worse
This might sound counterproductive, but did you know that, in most cases, chemicals aren’t even needed for mold remediation? We know if you ask nearly anyone on the street, they’ll tell you that bleach is the best way to kill mold, but truthfully, bleach can’t get mold out of a porous surface.
We follow the National Mold Remediation Standard at Valor Mold, which avoids using chemicals altogether. It has four simple steps to remove mold from an affected room:
Mold remediation is a process best completed with some good old-fashioned elbow grease. Using chemicals can worsen the situation. For example, consider fogging. This mold removal method is known to send customers to the hospital because it’s so extreme. We’re not afraid of a little hard work to get the job done safely for all our customers.
