Throat irritation, coughing, eye irritation, other cold symptoms that just won’t go away—do you have a cold, or are you suffering from the effects of mold? Whether it’s obvious or not, if there’s mold in your home it’s important to get a mold inspection and have it removed before it affects your health, and the health of your home.
We all hear about the dangers of black mold, but it’s not the only type of mold that can harm you. Black, grey, green: there’s a whole rainbow of mold that will ruin your air quality and break down the walls of your home.
If you’re located in Van Nuys and need a reliable contractor to take care of your mold cleanup, give Paul Davis Emergency Services a call. We’ll even start you off with a free estimate to help make your decision easier.
How Does Mold Happen?
Maybe it was there when you moved into your home, maybe it’s grown over time. Either way, you want it gone. But how did it get there in the first place and how are you going to avoid it in the future?
Mold can enter through windows or doors or be brought in on people and pets. If they are then provided with the right temperature and excessive moisture, they’ll start to grow. Mold is often found in older homes because they are not build as air-tightly as newer homes. Mold doesn’t mean that you or your home is dirty, it simply happens if you’re not sure how to avoid it.
If Paul Davis Emergency Services has helped you with your mold removal and you don’t want it to happen again, reduce moisture in your home with dehumidifiers, if there are plumbing leaks, fix them quickly, and essentially keep your home as dry as possible.
Homes in Van Nuys can develop mold problems in a variety of ways. Sometimes it’s obvious as it grows around your bathtub or up a wall, and other times you may suspect it’s growing in your attic or basement but can’t see the source.
In both situations, the Paul Davis Emergency Services team will first do a mold inspection to locate the problem, and then do mold testing to see what kind of mold we’re dealing with. Then, we can clean it properly and do our best to ensure it doesn’t come back again.
