The Importance Of Mold Removal

The Importance Of Mold Removal

Mold is an irritating type of fungi that thrives in moist environments. Mold colonies in the home, if left unabated, can become a health hazard. They can also damage upholstery, carpets, curtains, walls, books, and paper documents. Mold can cause allergic reactions in some people including runny nose, bronchial irritation, watery eyes, and asthma attacks. There are useful types of mold used in various industries, but the common molds found in most homes are an annoyance in the best-case scenario and can be catastrophic in the worst. There are steps you can take to reduce the chance of a mold outbreak occurring in your home. The best prevention against developing a mold problem is to keep the humidity levels in your home low. Mold spores can grow on almost any type of organic matter, but they cannot live in dry climates. If you discover a water leak in your home, fix it right away. Flooding is another problem, and should you experience one, dry any affected areas immediately. When you are dealing with mold, time is essential. The longer it takes you to treat the issues, the worse the outbreak can get and the more potential there is for damage to your property. Even in small colonies, mold spores are easy to see, and you can often detect an earthy smell in their presence. You can assume that you’ll find mold growing in any part of your home that is dark and humid. When it comes to mold removal, do-it-yourself methods are limited in what they can do. Damp removal, such as scrubbing with detergent and water, is easy, but it is not very effective. Make sure that you wear protective gear such as a mask and gloves any time you are trying to clean up mold on your own. It is also essential that the area you clean dries as fast as possible so that new mold colonies do not start growing. If you are not sure how to treat a mold problem or you are uncomfortable performing treatments yourself, it is best to hire a professional for mold removal. A professional will have techniques for detecting mold and technology to eliminate an entire mold colony safely. Some of the detection tools professionals employ include humidity gauges, thermographic cameras, and meters to measure moisture. These technologies allow a mold removal technician to find mold spores that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Once they find the source of the mold, they use specialized cleaning techniques to complete remove the mold from your home, down to the last spore. After mold removal, dehumidifying systems can be used to keep mold from coming back. Preventing mold issues can be as simple as keeping the humidity in problem areas low. If this does not work or your mold problems are more than you can handle, contact a professional mold remediation service. Getting rid of the spores is the only way to assure that the issue won’t keep coming back.

  • “My home was damaged by 2 hail storms and water began leaking down the walls and settling on the floor. I tried 5 different water mitigation companies and couldn’t even get a call back. My insurance company recommended Rainbow Int. and they had 2 guys out to check out the situation within 2 hours of my initial call. My insurance company recommended Rainbow so they are handing all of the billing directly.”

  • “We have a ton of visitors scheduled this summer so I let Dave, the site manager, know that they only had a week to get everything done. The crew was first rate and the house is completely dry and ready for construction to begin on time. Instead of just tidying up my home with a shop vac, as many contractors will do, they sent out a professional cleaning team to ensure that everything is perfect.”

  • “Our vacation home in Conifer suffered major water damage when a pipe fitting failed and water spilled onto the main floor for 5 days before my neighbor noticed it. Hard wood floors ruined on main floor, downstairs carpet and drywall destroyed. Rainbow Int. was very quick to respond and did an outstanding job cleaning up the mess. They were prompt, they were thorough, and they kept me in the loop the whole way, even though I was 1000 miles away in California. If you have water damage and you want it cleaned up quickly, I highly recommend Rainbow Int.”
