If you have a home that is suffering from mold growth, you may also find that your health is suffering. Even if you can only smell mold or mildew but can’t see it, what you’re breathing in can be toxic and harmful to your respiratory system, which can cause further health problems down the line. Mold spores are indeed in every home, but if you can see them or smell them, you can be sure that you have a problem. Sometimes, you can even have invasive mold and not see it or smell it, in which case you can have an inspection performed, and the mold contained and removed. If you think you may need home mold removal in San Diego, Hometown Restoration is here to help.
To have the mold removed, we first perform an inspection to make sure we find all of the molds that are in your home. If you see visible mold, you’re aware of where it is on surfaces, but that means it’s likely also in the air and maybe in other home areas where it can be invisible. Many mold spores are invisible to the naked eye. Many of them are harmless, but some can be harmful. A full inspection lets us know which mold to contain and get rid of.
Once we locate all of the mold colonies, we contain and remove it. Part of the process of removal is taking it from the air using our different air filtration machines. We may also find mold within your walls and on your belongings. Some drywall may need to be removed and later restored in order to completely eradicate the mold from your home. We also may need to use preventive measures, which is called mold abatement, to try to prevent mold from returning. If you have areas of your home that are naturally damp, such as a cellar, we may need to work toward making that area less moist so that mold does not return.
