A lot of homeowners assume that if there’s mold in their home, they’ll be able to smell it, so if they can’t smell it, then it must not be there. Some homeowners assume that even if there’s mold somewhere in their home, it’s not really a big deal and they can leave it unchecked. Other homeowners don’t pay close attention to areas of their home that are susceptible to mold growth (such as the basement, attic, and crawl space), and therefore they don’t catch it until it becomes a huge problem. EB Mold Removal is here to help you understand the necessity of mold removal Fremont.
The Signs of Mold
Mold can indeed be identified by the smell. However, there are other signs that may indicate mold without a smell. For instance, the sudden development of allergy symptoms or respiratory problems while in the home may indicate the presence of mold. Additionally, any collected moisture, dampness, or moisture-related warping of the floor, cupboards, walls, etc. can point to a mold problem. Additionally, some species of mold can even be identified on sight without noticing a smell. If you notice any of these signs, contact EB Mold Removal right away for professional mold removal.
The Consequences of Mold
The consequences of mold in the home are not something to be ignored. It can make you incredibly sick and can also cause permanent structural damage. Mold eats away at wood, insulation, and other essential building blocks of your home, and if they are contaminated, they must be replaced to protect your property. The risks to your health should not be ignored, either. You could experience headaches, skin irritation, allergy symptoms, respiratory symptoms, and infections, or even death in more serious cases.
The Process of Mold Removal
For mold removal with EB Mold Removal, mold must be identified, contained, and cleaned out or removed, after which the area must be dehumidified, restored, and tested again. Mold testing allows for more accurate removal, and by containing the area, the mold cannot spread during the removal process. In many cases, contaminated parts of the home should be removed entirely to rid the premises of mold. Once all mold has been eradicated, the area must be dried and dehumidified to prevent more moisture from collecting and cause more mold growth. Finally, the home must be restored and retested for any mold that may have been missed.
