COULD MY HOME CONTAIN MOLD?
Mold can strike at any time and any location. Some people tend to think that mold only happens to old homes, however any home, no matter how new it is, can be susceptible to mold. Mold grows in any environment that can become wet but is slow to dry, or is unventilated. Mold can also happen as a result of a natural disaster such as a flood, or an unexpected event like a burst pipe. In the event of a flood, water will come into areas that are not meant to become wet, with large amounts of water pooling, and are unable to dry quickly. This is the perfect scenario for mold to grow. The same is true for when a pipe bursts. Water will seep into drywall, the area behind the drywall, and other places that don’t allow for air to circulate. What is worse is that mold can be growing out of control behind your walls and you won’t even know it.
FACTS ABOUT MOLD
Mold is a basic term for thousands of different types of fungus. All types produce allergens and irritants that can expose you to symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, skin rashes, irritated eyes, hay fever symptoms, as well as nose, throat and lung issues. Toxic mold, which includes black mold, produces a poisonous substance called mycotoxins, which has the potential to cause serious health issues due to its interference in cell structures. Other issues that mold has been proven to cause are those including:
- Pulmonary hemorrhage
- Nose bleeds
- Immune system suppression causing infections
- Hair loss
- Chronic fatigue
- Psychological depression
- Sore throat
- Burning eyes
- Blurred vision
- Respiratory illness
- Chest pains
- Shortness of breath
- Dry cough
- Nasal congestion
- Aggravated asthma
WHY DO I NEED PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMOVAL SERVICES?
Mold can pose a serious threat on your health and well-being. Although not every type of mold is toxic to humans, its presence can eat away at surfaces such as wood and drywall and can affect the integrity of your home. Mold will reduce the value of your home and make it much more difficult to sell if that time ever comes for you. Completely removing mold cannot be done by yourself. Completely remediating mold requires special training and tools, and if not done improperly, it will return. Bleach does not effectively kill mold on porous surfaces and is not EPA or OSHA approved for mold remediation.
WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR POCATELLO MOLD REMOVAL SERVICES
Here is what you can expect from the Pocatello mold removal process at Tobin Restoration.
First we will assess the source of what could be causing the mold. Often we find leaky pipes and will need to make sure these things get fixed first. Once the severity and source is determined, a third party will take air samples before the areas are disturbed to fully understand the severity of the mold. After everything is discovered, we will be able to come up with a game plan for remediation.
Isolation of the infected area is important to prevent mold spores from spreading to uncontaminated areas. Once the affected areas are opened up, it is highly likely that a large mess will be made, and these plastic barriers will help to not only contain the mess but prevent cross contamination spreading.
Our trained technicians will remove mold infected materials such as drywall, baseboards, flooring, cabinets, insulation, etc. and properly dispose of them. If framing and structures are contaminated but still structurally strong, they can be HEPA vacuumed, sanded and cleaned.
CONTENT CLEANING AND RECOVERY
Our technicians will very carefully remove any of your property that was in the area of contamination, pack it up and bring it back to our facility where we will carefully clean, sanitize and eliminate the bacteria from your property. Since mold spores can spread very easily, this step is very important to prevent recolonization of mold. We will get your property back to you quickly to minimize disruptions to your daily lives.
