Mold Remediation Baltimore: Not all Mold is Toxic, but it should be removed

For starters, let’s debunk one mold myth. No, not all mold is toxic. According to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “While certain molds are toxigenic, meaning they can produce toxins (specifically mycotoxins), the molds themselves are not toxic, or poisonous.”

Ok, good. So mold is not harmful, right? Well, wrong.

While all mold is not toxic, and rare health conditions such as pulmonary hemorrhage or memory loss are rare, indoor exposure can cause lesser health issues, such as coughing, wheezing, asthma exacerbation, and rash. This is especially true for those of us with mold allergies. This is why it is so important to remove mold as soon as it is discovered.

Do-it-Yourself Mold Remediation

Before you even think about just throwing bleach on the problem and moving on with your life, stop! Mold is not something that can be cleaned using a household cleaner, like bleach. Mold remediation must be handled professionally by a certified mold remediator.

Mold Allergy Treatment: Call your Baltimore Mold Remediation Company!

Have you or a loved one started experiencing unexplainable symptoms, including wheezing; stuffy or runny nose; itchy, watery eyes; shortness of breath; or rash or hives?

For the rest of us, mold is simply an irritant, aggravating the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs.

Want to rid yourself of that wheezing; stuffy or runny nose; itchy, watery eyes; or rash or hives? Well, the only way to get rid of the symptoms is to get rid of the source of the problem: the mold!

DIY Mold Inspection & Remediation

In today’s do-it-yourself world, more and more homeowners are taking on tasks they would have outsourced to professionals in the past. After all, you can find a video to walk you through pretty much anything on the Internet. So there should be no reason you can’t handle the mold inspection and remediation on your own, right? Wrong!

  1. DIY Mold Inspection vs. Professional Mold Inspection: While DIY mold testing kits may pick up on most instances of mold, they are not 100% affective. This is why you need to hire a professional mold inspector to survey your home.
  2. DIY Mold Remediation vs. Professional Mold Remediation: Mold is not something that can be cleaned up with bleach and water and forgotten about. Mold removal must be dealt with professionally by a certified mold remediator, like the ones found at Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC.

Real Estate Tips: The Consequences of Failing to Disclose Mold

When selling your home, you have a legal obligation to disclose material defects, including leaks, damage to the property, and, of course, mold.

Failing to Disclose Mold

As a seller, if you fail to disclose mold or other issues that would adversely affect a person’s decision to purchase the property, you are actively committing fraud. Furthermore, when you fail disclose issues, you can be held liable for damages sustained by the buyer.

Selling your Home “As is”

Many homeowners are under the impression that selling a home “as is” and inserting this clause into the agreement frees them from any future liability. Well, we hate to burst your bubble, but this could not be any further from the truth. Selling a home “as is” simply means that you will not make any repairs before the sale of a property. It does not free you from your legal obligation to disclose issues, such as mold.

If future issues, like mold, are discovered and it is determined that you, the seller, knew of the defect or defects at the time of the sale you will be held liable.

Dealing with Mold

Does your home have mold? Do yourself a favor; instead of having to disclose a mold problem, have it remediated. This will not only save you the headache of having to disclose such a major issues, but it will also make your home much easier to sell!

DIY Mold Testing Kits Vs. Professional Baltimore Mold Inspection

We live in a do-it-yourself society. After all, the Internet has instructional video on everything from DIY auto repair to DIY mold inspections. There are even DIY mold test kits available for purchase. Still, there are some things bets left to the professionals…and mold testing is one of them!

While DIY mold testing kits may pick up on most instances of mold, they are not 100% affective. This is why you need to hire a professional mold inspector to survey your home. This is the only way to be certain your home is mold free. And with mold being connected to several health issues – including persistent coughing, wheezing, difficulties breathing, sore throat, and more – you can never be too safe.

Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems: Your Baltimore Mold Inspector

A professional mold inspection conducted by Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems will involve a visual investigation of the attic, crawlspace, roof, HVAC system and any stain discolorations or signs of moisture intrusion. If the mold source is not visible, air sampling will be used to determine the type and amount of airborne contamination in your home or business.

Tape and/or swab samples are collected from visibly affected surfaces to determine the specific mold types. And once we know exactly what type of mold we are dealing with and where it is, we will be able to remove the mold.

At Chesapeake Environmental, we do not cover up mold, WE REMOVE IT!
