Why should you have your home inspected for mold?
- Drywall, clothing, furnishings, baseboards, ceilings etc. show signs of mold growth that you can visually identify
- You’ve been told that you have severe allergies or illnesses
- Roof leaks
- Faulty HVAC system
- You’ve had a flood or overflow
- Musty or foul odors
- Home dilapidation
- Mold or water damage from a previous resident
- Young children, elderly, or immune compromised individuals live within the home
- Cast Iron Pipes
If your house was also built before 1965, that means that you have cast-iron pipes, which deteriorate and also disintegrate, thus allowing raw sewage to collect underneath your house. This can not only destroy your home, but it can become a deadly situation.
Water Damage Dry-Outs
Water intrusions to your home can turn into a destructive and possibly deadly situation, fast. Water can destroy ceilings (integrity of the structure), walls, flooring, furniture, food and any other material possessions you might have. Bacterial growth can multiply rapidly and mold can grow exponentially. We use EPA approved and ecologically safe technology in our Clean, Green Recovery process to enable our clients (and pets) to remain in their homes while we preform our water and mold removal procedures. If any flooding occurs within your home, such as overflows from toilets, washing machines, dishwashers etc., we we’ll dry-out the wet areas. Leak detection is vital because the source of the water has to be stopped, immediately. Cocoa Mold Removal’s state licensed and IICRC certified inspectors will visually inspect your home and use state of the art moisture meters. This will tell you how much humidity is in the air and if any water is sitting behind walls or other places, unseen. The next step is stopping the source of the leak or water intrusion. Ones accomplished, we’ll bring in our commercial grade fans, dehumidifiers and air-scrubbers in. This will dry out the affected area and purify your air.
Health Complications Caused by Sitting Water and Mold
Indoor air quality is extremely important because it directly affects your health. According to a study done by the Mayo Clinic, approximately 93% of chronic respiratory infections are caused by mold. Respiratory and immune illnesses can develop rapidly, such as asthma, coughing, shortness of breath and even memory loss (from Mycotoxins). Other mold symptoms can include, but aren’t limited to, skin rashes, red eyes, runny nose, rhinitis, sore throat, wheezing, nasal congestion and sinusitis. Mold spores are extremely powerful and can continue to grow for many years. In addition, allergens love to sit on spores. This allows their presence for many years as well, even if they’re not alive. Mold spores can also lay dormant for long periods of time and all it takes is a little humidity, then boom, a brand new explosion of mold. Not only can mold and water intrusions make you sick, but it can also invite other unwanted guests into your home such as cockroaches, ants, mites, fleas etc. So give Cocoa Mold Removal a call today and let us keep you safe and healthy.
Mold Removal and Remediation
When mold gets into building materials such as drywall, wood, concrete and flooring, it has to be removed. Mold removal should never be attempted by yourself or anyone unlicensed. When mold is disturbed or agitated, it gets defensive and starts rapidly shooting off mold spores (sporulating) in every possible direction, including your HVAC and duct work which gets circulated throughout your home. Bleach and other cleaners will also just end up spreading more spores throughout your home. Bleach only removes the mold stains, but the roots aren’t eliminated, so the mold growth will continue.
Cocoa Mold Removal follows strict IICRC regulations that have been set for the industry. Before we disturb any mold, a containment area is built around the infested area/mold, preventing the spreading of any spores to the rest of your home. Air scrubbers and dehumidifiers are also set up inside and outside of the containment area to immediately start purifying your air and removing excess humidity. Our air scrubbers contain many different stages of filters, and have a high-CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute) output. You want this because your duct work has been recycling the toxic air and spores up until this point. So the more air we can scrub, the better. Once the mold has been removed, we’ll fog the area, which will kill spores that are floating around elsewhere within the home. As a result of our fogging, porous surfaces and tiny spaces can be reached. Cocoa Mold Removal take pride in our Clean, Green Recovery process and never use any harmful chemicals like chlorine, pesticides or any other toxins. Everything we use is environmentally friendly and EPA adored.
Air Duct Cleaning
Many people say that air duct cleaning is not necessary and nor effective. Both of which are false. Air ducts are the heart and soul of your home and HVAC system. Air within your home is constantly being re-circulated; therefore indoor air pollutants are being ventilated. Keeping your air ducts clean will drastically improve your indoor air quality, which will keep you healthy. Not to mention your HVAC system will thank you by being able to run at its best ability. Since the HVAC system doesn’t have to work so hard with clean ducts, it will also reduce your monthly utility bill. Any time you have mold within your home, you should always get your air ducts cleaned because there’s guaranteed mold spores that are still left lingering around in the duct work and HVAC system. Even if you don’t have any mold, air duct cleaning is always highly recommended. Give Cocoa Mold Removal a call and we’ll take care of you.
