Mold Remediation Service

Mold removal is one of the most critical issues faced by homeowners in the wake of a natural disaster or other forms of water damage. As well as the level of water produced naturally during such catastrophes, natural disasters can also destroy water pipes which can lead to flooding within the home. Mold remediation not only helps restore your property, but it can also prevent possible health problems.

The Resicom Building & Restoration mold remediation team will thoroughly inspect your property to ascertain the causes of the mold while ensuring every trace of it is destroyed. Did you know that hidden water is the main reason for mold growth in San Diegan properties? After a water emergency, mold remediation is essential because water gets into places you can’t see. For example, it could gather deep in your interior walls, flow beneath flooring or become absorbed by drywall.

When it Comes to Mold Remediation, FAST Action is Essential!

Once your home has been struck by a natural disaster that floods your home, it is critical for you to get in touch with a renowned mold remediation company in San Diego. Not only can mold destroy your possessions and property, but it is also capable of causing serious physical harm. Sadly, four professors from the Southern University of New Orleans died due to complications caused by mold growth in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

Although it is only natural to try and return to your flooded home to check the damage, we urge you to stay away and get in touch with our mold remediation team instead. Properties damaged in this manner could be structurally unstable, and the air is likely to be filled with harmful mold spores.

As mold will grow on practically any material that stays wet for two days or more, you have to invest in mold remediation as soon as possible. The longer mold and moisture remain, the faster these fungi can spread. When you contact our mold remediation team, we will arrive at your property in quick time. Then, we will inspect your property, ensure it is safe to proceed, and remove all traces of mold. Finally, we guarantee that it does not come back so you can return home, breathe the air, and do your best to return to your life.

Why Do I Need Mold Remediation?

Molds are types of fungi and thrive in warm and moist environments, such as a San Diego home that has suffered water damage. They digest decaying organic materials to survive, and since they don’t need chlorophyll to produce food, they can grow without sunlight. While we need mold to prevent dead plant matter from overrunning the world, it is incredibly harmful when allowed to grow in residential homes and businesses.

Without mold remediation, it can grow unchecked in your home leading to medical problems such as breathing difficulties, skin irritation, headaches, and allergic reactions. As it can act as an irritant, mold is capable of triggering asthma attacks in people allergic to it. Symptoms include red eyes, runny nose, and sneezing.

More seriously, mold remediation can prevent the long-term health problems caused by these fungi. Molds produce mycotoxins, toxic substances found on the surface of their spores. Once these mycotoxins enter your system, (which could happen via inhalation, skin contact or ingestion) they can cause terrible damage to your health. One of the best-known mycotoxins is Aflatoxin B1, a carcinogen which increases your risk of lung cancer.
