The Importance of Prompt Expert Mold Removal at Your Home or Commercial Property
Like many other seasonal allergies, exposure to outdoor mold can cause a reaction to those who have a sensitivity. Limiting exposure to mold spores when mold counts are high and treating allergies with medication are effective remedies.
While outdoor mold is naturally occurring and flourishes nearly every day of the year, limiting the growth and exposure to mold inside the home should be a top priority. It’s possible that mold enters your home from the outside through doorways, windows, vents, and even clothing. Mold can also sprout and grow in areas where there is a high level of moisture or humidity. This could mean areas where there has been flooding or water damage as well as in damp areas of the home such as the basement—which may impact carpet, wallpaper, insulation, as well pipes and windows.
The most common types mold found inside the home include but are not limited to:
Aspergillus: This mold type commonly occurs on food and in your home air conditioning system.
Cladosporium: Often a black or green mold that looks like pepper, this type of mold frequently pops up in the bathroom and on painted areas of the home.
Stachybotrys: This toxic and dangerous mold type is most well known as black mold.
In the case of black mold, which is particularly dangerous to your and your family’s well-being, exposure can lead to severe symptoms ranging from nausea to chronic coughing to headaches and even nose bleeds or more grave upper respiratory problems.
To reduce the health risks that accompany mold exposure in the home, it’s imperative to seek prompt and effective mold removal. Our experienced team can provide the expertise you’re seeking and prevent further growth from interrupting your quality of life.
Mold Removal Done Right in California with Zebra Restoration
Identifying a mold issue in your home may not always be obvious, and prolonged exposure can lead to various health issues, despite the pungent and unpleasant odors it produces. Although mold growth can be visually detected or by detecting a smell or experiencing allergic or mold-related symptoms, it's crucial to seek professional help for mold testing.
Our team conducts a thorough mold inspection with the latest moisture mapping and infrared camera technology, inspecting walls and hidden areas where water may be invading and leading to mold growth. We may also take air and surface samples to establish the source and extent of the problem.
After obtaining lab results and locating the cause and severity of the issue, we provide a comprehensive plan for isolation, removal, and prevention. We take great care to eliminate moisture sources, fully decontaminate, and clean the affected area.
At Zebra Restoration, we handle everything from inspection to cleanup and final reporting to health and environmental agencies required by law. If you have any questions throughout the process regarding regulations, feel free to contact us. We offer fast and proficient mold removal services for California homes.
Basement, Attic and Crawlspace Encapsulation
What is Encapsulation? Encapsulating a basement, attic or crawlspace means sealing it against moisture leaks, after a water drainage system is installed. Keeping water out of your basement, attic or crawlspace is only part of the solution; you also need to get it away from your foundation.
Basement, Attic or Crawlspace encapsulation is not always necessary, but can be a great solution in certain climates or situations where moisture and mold are persistent problems. For example, areas with extreme temperature swings, high humidity, or heavy rainfall can create an environment that promotes mold growth and affects air quality. Older homes with stone foundations can also be particularly susceptible to moisture and water penetration.
However, simply addressing the acute problem of moisture or water penetration may not be enough to solve the issue permanently. Encapsulation can create a barrier that prevents future moisture issues, even after measures such as sump pumps, proper drainage, dehumidifiers, and ventilation have been taken. By combining these solutions with encapsulation, you can effectively mitigate the long-term effects of moisture and mold.
With proper basement encapsulation you can expect
Improved Air Quality - If there is dampness or mold in your basement, it's highly likely mold, mildew, bacteria, and other harmful contaminants are present, which can affect the air quality in your home as well.
Property Damage Mitigation - Basement or crawlspace encapsulation can provide protection against various problems such as buckling floors, rotting wood framing and supports, and pest infestations.
Heating and Cooling Savings - Annually, leakage from your basement or crawlspace can cost a significant amount of money. Some estimates suggest this cost can be as high as 18%.
When you call Zebra Restoration for crawlspace encapsulation we handle everything for you, from the inspection, to the cleanup, to the final reporting to any necessary health and environmental agencies required by law. If you have any questions at all through the process with regards to those regulations if they apply, and they don’t always do, then feel free to contact us at any time during your restoration project.
