Need Mold Removal? San Diego's Silver Olas Can Help

Among the many headaches that can be faced by homeowners, mold growth – particularly when found in abundance within walls – is one of the most frustrating. Mold can be difficult to contend with, and it can’t just be cleaned up and forgot. There are certain conditions that must be present in order for mold to form. Removing the mold, but allowing those conditions to continue, is just like asking for it to come back.

Mold spores thrive in dark, moist, warm environments. Mold growth can take place in as little as 24 to 48 hours. That means, removing the mold spores, but allowing the right conditions for mold growth to persist, could lead to more mold in as little as one or two days. So, how do you tackle this problem?

Step #1. Call a Mold Removal Professional.

The first step is to address the existing mold. The spores can be very harmful to those residing or working in the space, particularly for the very young, the elderly, or those prone to respiratory illnesses. Silver Olas provides many cleaning services include mold removal. San Diego residents have access to the 24/7 live emergency line offered by Silver Olas. And, the company offers immediate response. The professionals employed by Silver Olas will make quick work of killing and removing the mold spores from the home. When the work is complete, a thorough mold investigation will be done to ensure that it was all removed. This can turn up other areas of mold that the homeowner may not have been aware of as well.

Step #2. Reduce humidity.

In addition to the mold removal, San Diego residents must mitigate humidity if they hope to prevent future mold growth, though. It was mentioned above that mold thrives in warm, dark, humid environments. Remove humidity, and the spores will stop growing. The easiest way to do this, of course, is to invest in a high-quality dehumidifier. There are many on the market, however, you will have to be proactive about emptying the water collection reservoir. Some dehumidifiers are also equipped with filters that will have to be replaced periodically. As long as the water chamber is regularly emptied and filters can changed out as needed, the dehumidifier will help you prevent more mold-related problems.

If mold has been discovered on your property, call the professionals at Silver Olas, so you can be sure that all of the potentially harmful spores are removed.
