Understanding the Danger of Mold Damage
Mold emits an earthy/musty smell so if you smell it, it’s safe to assume you have it. Look for visible signs of mold which will appear as black or white clusters/specs or discoloration on walls or ceilings. If you spot mold on the outside of walls or ceilings the inside should be a cause of concern.
A common but dangerous type of mold is black mold. This mold can have an adverse effect on the health of everyone who is exposed to it including your pets. Humans who are the most at risk are the elderly, newborns, and young children, people with respiratory issues, and people with a compromised immune system. It is imperative to get toxic black mold removal done as this type of toxic mold can cause an array of allergic reactions and health problems such as wheezing, coughing, red watery eyes, skin irritation or rashes, sneezing, runny nose, or for those with asthma an attack. More severe reactions appear as flu-like symptoms including shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, headache, aches and pains and shortness of breath, or difficulty breathing. Thankfully, Flood Solutions has the equipment and know-how to perform black mold remediation in Oceanside so you and your family can breathe easy.
Please do not underestimate the severity of the mold in your structure and the degree of difficulty involved in the mold cleaning process. Proper mold remediation has to be done carefully and correctly to eliminate the spread of mold spores to other rooms. Mold removal is not a “DIY” job. Mold removal requires specialized chemicals, equipment, and training. Treating mold with household chemicals such as bleach can cause the mold to spread and create more costly issues in your home.
The Mold Cleanup Process
The process of handling a mold issue typically consists of containment, cleaning, and removal of contaminated materials.
The mold remediation process involves removing mold and treating surfaces and materials that have been contaminated by mold. We use our Oceanside mold remediation services to remove mold in carpets, mold in drywall, mold in upholstery and furniture, and anywhere else mold might be present. Mold will grow just about anywhere there is moisture and/or high humidity. The methods used for remediation will vary depending on the type of mold in the house and the effects of mold on the materials. To ensure we are completely removing mold in your property, a customized mold inspection and mold cleanup process will be followed to properly remove and treat the contaminated areas.
Once mold detection and the mold assessments are complete we can begin the removal process. In most Oceanside mold mitigation cases, we are able to use a state-of-the-art technology called ‘soda blasting’. Soda blasting uses large volumes of compressed air to propel particles at high volume onto the affected area removing the mold growth and mold spores. Baking soda is a natural substance that neutralizes both acids and bases and eliminates the odor. The soft nature of baking soda allows for the quick removal of mold while causing the least impact on wood surfaces. Baking soda blasting is a safe and environmentally friendly way to provide mold treatment.
Non-porous hard surfaces such as plastics or metals can usually be wet vacuumed, damp wiped, and HEPA vacuumed. Wood surfaces are usually wet vacuumed, damp wiped, and HEPA vacuumed. Porous materials such as drywall, carpets, and upholstery are typically vacuumed and discarded. Depending on the extent of mold contamination, wood surfaces might also be removed and discarded. Air ducts are treated especially carefully as they can push spores into different rooms.
Crawlspace Mold Damage Cleanup and Removal
One of the most common places for mold to grow is in crawlspaces. crawlspaces are the perfect breeding ground for mold as they are generally dark and damp places under your home. Also with almost zero foot traffic, the mold can go unnoticed for long periods of time. We handle crawlspace mold remediation in Oceanside CA. If you’ve come across mold in your crawlspace, contact us for crawlspace mold removal before the mold spreads further.
The Do’s and Don’ts of Mold Damage Cleanup
DO keep children and pets away from the compromised area. Children and pets are highly susceptible to contracting mold-related illnesses. The elderly are also at risk due to the possibility of a weak immune system.
DO quarantine the area if possible. Put up containment with plastic sheeting to limit the spread of spores.
DO turn off the HVAC system to that area. By turning off the HVAC system that controls that area you are eliminating the chances of mold spores infesting your system and being dispersed throughout the home.
DO have our professional Houston mold company show where all the areas are that contain mold spores to ensure that the problem is handled completely. Mold in your attic or crawlspace can be especially tricky to detect and remove, so Houston mold damage contractors are important in accomplishing complete attic cleanup and removal.
DO bring in an experienced and trained technician to make sure you and everyone in your home or business remain safe. Do a search online for “mold companies near me” and call a professional Oceanside mold damage company to get a complete evaluation of your situation and a quick remediation solution to your problem.
DON’T try to kill it. Dead spores are just as harmful as living spores. If you agitate the mold it will cause a spread of its particles on both the surface and in the air.
DON’T clean it with harsh chemicals. Cleaning the mold with an unnatural chemical, such as bleach, can cause the mold to actually stimulate more growth. Yes, your cleaner may take care of the situation momentarily but cleaning with such a harsh chemical can have a negative effect. It’s best to use all-natural ingredients to treat and maintain this situation.
DON’T paint or varnish over the mold and assume it’s eliminated. There is still a reservoir of potentially damaging spores inside the structure, and paint will quickly peel to reveal the damage again.
DON’T place fans on the damaged area. Aiming a fan on the affected area will only cause it to break apart and disperse mold spores into the air. When you blow air onto mold it will disperse tiny harmful spores into the air, quickly and negatively affecting the air quality.
DON’T Start any cleanup before having the proper mold assessment completed. You don’t want to end up spending more money on mold remediation than required.
