Bio-One of Chula Vista is a professional mold remediation company. Our specialists undergo extensive training and education to provide honest insight into what might be the root cause of mold growth inside the house, as well as properly clean and disinfect the areas from mold spores and mycotoxins.
During the rainy season, it’s important to be extra careful when it comes to mold, as it only requires water and a damp environment to grow. The main concern with mold growth, besides the fact that it can colonize within 24 to 48 hours, is that it can grow on almost any surface inside the house.
The key areas to look for mold inside your house
Wallpaper, carton board, ceiling tiles, insulation, floor tiles, carpet, HVAC systems, upholstery, and even household furniture are surfaces where mold can grow. After these surfaces are contaminated with mold, a professional should take care of the cleaning and remediation process, especially because, most of the time, the damage is irreversible. Some areas include:
The basement is typically a poorly ventilated area, so keeping it dry and free of any water-related damage is important. If you recently experienced flooding, you can take out any item that may have been impacted by water and let it dry in the sun. If your laundry area is in the basement, be sure to keep it dry and avoid leaving wet clothes.
This is another area that usually has poor ventilation. Promptly fix leaks on the roof, gutter, doors, and windows. As mold consumes organic matter, mold damage may severely affect wood structures. Regularly open the attic and allow the air to flow in these areas.
Bathrooms are the most suitable place for mold to grow. The best thing you can do to control the humidity levels in this area is to have an extractor fan. They extract the humidity and moisture from the bathroom. Avoid leaving wet towels, regularly remove the carpet to dry, and promptly fix any water leaks from the shower, sink and toilet.
Visible mold spores around the house
Mold spores are present in the air, and it’s impossible to eliminate them from indoor environments. They actually do not pose a risk of infection as long as the humidity levels in the property are controlled. Key recommendations to control humidity are by taking care of water-related damage (leaks in the kitchen sink, doors, windows, roof, pipes, and condensation around HVAC systems). Additionally, you can install a dehumidifier for the dampest areas, like the basement.
