Mold has a bad habit of hiding in the cabinet, below sinks, or behind walls. It has a tendency to grow in basements and anywhere there’s a confined airspace. Water (from rain, sleet, snow, ice, etc.) and humidity can infiltrate building materials, helping mold spread in such a way that people’s health is negatively affected. Sinus problems, headaches and other ailments are common problems associated with a mold problem. Before mold takes over your house, it’s best to eradicate it. Calling Mold Remediation Service to get rid of it is a smart choice.

A general rule of thumb is that if mold is visible around the house, mold inspection is not required– you already know you have it! All you need, then, is to remove the mold, practicing industry standard guidelines. If you have mold growing in your house, it’s best to take care of it before it gets out of hand due to a bad rain storm or a pipe bursting.

In a confined airspace, the problem becomes worse than you’d imagine because mold goes unchecked and increases in magnitude. For example, mold becomes a major issue after a major storm comes through Minnesota with crazy amounts of rainfall and, unfortunately, water-logged basements. If your house has mold developing after a bad storm, Arko can find it and remove all traces of it! The process is called mold removal or mold remediation.

Mold usually inhabits spaces where water collects and excessive humidity can condense and cause mold to grow. Odd as it may sound, new homes are more susceptible to mold development than old homes because new homes are tightly insulated with fiberglass insulation– a prime place for mold to grow.

Since mold can cause health issues for people, it’s a good idea to have a mold inspection done before remediation in order to determine the severity of the mold.  Sometimes people are unaware that there even exists a mold issue in the house because it’s not clearly visible to the naked eye and hides behind walls and underneath basins and inside cabinets. Arko finds and identifies mold and expertly removes it. Rooms/areas get scrubbed and cleaned with fresh, circulating air, bringing the house back to normalcy.

The chemical that’s generally used to drive mold away from the premises is chlorine bleach, though it is not an EPA-approved biocide. It’s better to use an EPA-approved product such as Mold Stat.

The most popular spaces for mold are the attic, crawl spaces, basement, furnaces, kitchens and around chimneys.

The source of mold development is moisture in the house.

If you’re looking for a new home, it’s vital that you have the home professionally inspected for mold and/or water damage.
