Mold is a scourge that has been around forever. While it’s natural, that doesn’t mean we have to like it. Spiders and tornadoes are natural too.
But mold isn’t just ugly; it can be dangerous too. It releases mycotoxins that can make you sick, causing one or more of the following symptoms:
You may have seen mold in your home. It is most commonly found in basements, bathrooms, under sinks or in any places that are dark and damp. Sunlight and dry air kill mold.
Most people are familiar with black mold, but mold can also be brown, white, yellow or pink. You may even have a mold problem you cannot see.
Some mold isn’t readily visible or is growing in a concealed area, such as behind walls or under floors. You may smell it (it gives off a musty aroma), or your only other indication might be lingering cold symptoms in your family or workers.
To find out if you have a mold problem in your home or at your business, contact Tahoe Clean Air Sacramento. We’ll come out and perform tests on the surfaces inside the building and the air as well. If the results show mold, we will find the source and clean it up.
Depending on how bad the infestation is, we may need to dispose of items that can’t be fully cleaned, such as furniture, or we may need to remove contaminated building materials such as drywall or floorboards.
Once the job is done, we’ll give you advice on how to prevent the problem from returning, possibly including adding exhaust fans or dehumidifiers.
Don’t let mold and mildew make your family or workers sick. Call Tahoe Clean Air Sacramento today.
