Where is Mold Commonly Found?

When it comes to mold, it is very important to constantly be inspecting your home or office after water damage. But where does the mold live? Because if you’re looking for it, it’s important to know where to look. Well unfortunately there is no simple answer to that question. If the conditions are right, mold can be found anywhere.

Mold is a very tiny microorganism and because of this, it can hide just about anywhere. Under your carpet, behind drywall, anywhere that can be warm, dark and moist, mold will find a way to grow.

Mold Inspection Baltimore

Checking your home or commercial space for mold is important. Some molds produce toxins, which can cause problems with your health, such as allergies, respiratory problems and other illnesses. Black molds, which produce mycotoxins, are very poisonous to the body. Other types of mold are relatively harmless. But it is still best to get your home checked and have the mold removed from your home.

Do you know what type of mold you have?

If you suspect you have mold, you need to call Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, your Baltimore mold inspector. Our inspections involve a visual investigation of the attic, crawlspace, roof, HVAC system and any stain discolorations or signs of moisture intrusion. If mold is not visible, mold sampling can be conducted for an additional fee.

Is my home at risk for mold?

“Is my home at risk for mold?”

The answer: YES!

Each and every home is at risk for mold.

Mold requires just two things to grow: a food source and moisture. The food source can be anything from dry wall to insulation to carpeting. And the moisture can come from anywhere, including roof leaks, a broken pipe, poor construction, inadequate ventilation, and so much more.

“Is mold dangerous?”

The answer: YES!

Not only is mold unsightly, but it also gives off a musty odor, eats away at your building materials – like drywall and insulation – and can cause a number of different health problems, including sinus congestion, persistent coughing, wheezing, difficulties breathing, sore throat, skin irritation or rash, and so much more!

“Is mold easily treatable?”

The answer: YES!

While mold may not always be avoidable, it is generally very treatable…if you act fast!

Mold is not something that can be cleaned up with bleach and water and forgotten about. If you have mold, you need a professional Mold Remediation company. You need Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems!

Preventing Mold Growth In Your Home

Following a major storm, flooding, a busted pipe, or any other incident that results in water infiltration in your home, you need to act quickly! It only takes mold about two days to start growing in your home, giving you just 24-48 to sufficiently dry your home and prevent mold growth.

Preventing Mold Growth

  1. Step one: Remove any standing water.
  2. Step two: Remove any damaged building materials.
  3. Step three: Ventilate any affected areas by simply opening windows.
  4. Step four: Begin the drying process, using drying equipment, high-efficiency dehumidifiers and fans.
  5. Step five: Fix the source of the water intrusion (roof leak, excessive condensation, poor drainage, clogged gutters, etc.).

However, if mold does appear, your best bet is to call a professional mold remediation company, like Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems.

We are a certified and insured mold remediation company serving Maryland, Washington DC, Virginia, Delaware, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Our experience is backed by years of excellent service, cost-effective solutions, honest assessments and guaranteed results. Best of all, we provide Free Mold Assessments!

Daily Mold Prevention Tips

  1. Indoor Humidity: You generally want to keep indoor humidity low, ideally between 30 and 50 percent relative humidity.
  2. Vent Appliances: When possible, vent moisture producing appliances, like clothes dryers, stoves, and kerosene heaters, outside. This will help remove some humidity from your home.
  3. Dehumidifiers: When needed, a dehumidifier can help.
  4. Insulate: It is important to insulate pipes and ductwork. This will help prevent condensation.

The Warning Signs of Mold explained by your Baltimore Mold Removal Company

Don’t let harmful mold grow into a bigger problem than it has to in your home. Because mold can grow on virtually any surface, from wood to tile to carpeting to paper, it can seem as though nothing can stop it. However, if you know the warning signs of mold, you can head off the multitude of issues that it can cause in your home and family.

In order to help you catch mold from the start, Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems has listed the top warning signs you should be on the lookout for, starting with…

-Visible mold growth

If you see it, you better believe it. Mold will often appear either as a discoloration in the surface on which it is growing, or there will be a noticeable, fuzzy texture. A mold remediation company should be called as soon as visible mold is identified.

Musty odors

An unusual smell in our home can indicate many things: a gas leak, a spill, or garbage that needs to be removed. However a particularly musty odor could mean you’ve got mold; an expert can advise you as to whether or not it is.

-Water damage

Mold loves to grow in damp environments. If your home has recently gone through a flood or a burst pipe, the damage left by the water could foster a growth of mold.

Health problems

Mold can cause an abundance of health problems, notably congestion, coughing, respiratory difficulty, sore throat, and skin irritation. If you or your family are experiencing any of these symptoms and cannot find an explanation, it could be because of mold.

-Water-retaining areas

Due to poor drainage or leaking, some areas in your home may appear wet after it rains. If you can identify many of these areas, mold might not be far behind. Mold experts, such as those at Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, should be contacted immediately.

For quality care and attention paid to your mold concerns, look no further than Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems. We have the tools to ensure you and your family are safe, secure, and 100% mold-free.
