Enlisting the help of a professional mold inspection service can have many benefits. Sure, it seems cheaper and easier to try and take care of your mold problem yourself, with over the counter mold removal solutions, but unfortunately mold problems are notoriously hard to get rid of for one simple reason: moisture. You see, mold can’t grow in a dry environment, so if you’ve got a mold problem at your home or business, the chances are that you’re also dealing with a fairly serious water damage problem. Unless the source of the moisture can be located, dried out, and prevented from happening again, your mold problem will become chronic, lowering your property value and endangering the health of anyone who occupies the building.

Repeated exposure to high concentrations of mold spores can exacerbate conditions like asthma, and even cause allergies to develop over time. Signs and symptoms of an existing or developing mold allergy may include the following: runny nose, sneezing, coughing, congestion, wheezing, red, watery, or itchy eyes, as well as skin irritation or rash. While mold itself is not poisonous or toxic, some types of mold can produce toxic substances called mycotoxins. Mycotoxins may cause irritation of the skin or airways in sensitive individuals, or even cause a severe reaction. Symptoms of a severe reaction to mold exposure include fever and difficulty breathing. Individuals with chronic lung disease or compromised immune systems may develop serious lung infections. If you or anyone you live or work with is experiencing these symptoms, it’s a good bet that you have a mold problem. To be sure, you should not only contact your primary healthcare provider but also the experts at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services to come out and do a full evaluation.

So, you’ve called DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services, received and used your mold test kit, and discovered that you definitely have a mold problem on your property—now what? Well, it’s time to bring in professional help. Mold can show up anywhere the moisture and humidity in an area rises above 45%. Homes and apartments in naturally humid climates like California tend to experience more mold problems than residences in dryer climates, but wherever there is moisture, mold will soon follow. Once an area has been affected by raised humidity or water damage, it becomes a prime target for mold spores to move in and make themselves at home. At DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services we can detect the primary location of your mold problem, scouting all affected locations within the property. Not only can the experts at DryAgain Water, Mold and Fire Restoration Services test for and locate mold, but we can help you to remove and eliminate any existing mold before undertaking the crucial final step of locating and neutralizing the source of moisture that has created a mold-friendly environment.

Usually by the time mold damage becomes noticeable, it is already too late, but further damage can be prevented through quick action and professional help. Be aware of potential areas of heightened humidity: mold can’t grow where it’s dry!
