The Dangers of Mold

Mold is very common in homes because every building has somewhere with the perfect environment for mold growth: damp and dark. Mold typically grows in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks or where there has been flooding, and can grow on most surfaces. Moisture is also an indication of other problems with your home and can lead to greater damage. Remedying mold situations is the best course of action for both your home and your health.

There are a lot of types of mold out there and only a few of them are dangerous for humans. Most kinds of mildew, for example, are not as toxic as black mold. Some people are more sensitive to mold than others, however, as molds produce allergens, irritants, and mycotoxins. Touching or inhaling mold and mold spores can cause allergic reactions including, but not limited to:
Testing for mold
Asthma Attacks
Sneezing
Runny nose
Skin rash
Irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs
While toxic molds are rarely connected with serious medical conditions, mold is still something you want to test for and fix right away. Guardian Environmental is here to help keep you safe from allergens, toxins, and other contaminants.

Mold Testing

Most homes have some moisture and mold; it's completely normal and can most of the time be cleaned up easily. However, long-term exposure to excessive mold levels can be dangerous. Mold testing is the first step to restoring your house to a mold-free home.

Some of the time, if you have a large mold infestation, you can see or smell it. Mold generally appears in spots of different colors, like black, green, and white, and can smell musty since it grows in damp areas. If you do see a lot of mold growth in your home or smell something off, it's a good idea to schedule a test to make sure that mold is not affecting your air quality. 

Even if you haven't seen mold growth, testing is still a viable option for you. In these cases, professionals like our team at Guardian Environmental can locate the source for you.

We use infrared thermal imaging technology throughout the home to locate moisture and mold. Physical samples will be taken and sent to a special lab for testing. When combined with an air quality test, not only can we determine the types of mold present, but also their individual levels. We can then see not only what the problem mold is but help locate its source for quicker remediation.

Mold Remediation Services

If excessive mold growth is found in your home, mold remediation may be a necessary step. The areas with mold growth will have to be treated for mold and cleaned or removed depending on the damage. For example, if you have mold growth in your walls due to leakage for flooding, the drywall will have to be removed and replaced, since damp walls are not safe and secure.

You can trust that the Guardian Environmental team will be honest about your damage and only perform necessary remediation steps. If your home needs remediation, we can test the mold and your air, remove the mold damage, and ensure that you are safe after completion.
