Mold problems can be one of the toughest to diagnose because mold spores are present in every home and structure. It’s just the degree of mold that determines whether there is a problem or not. If you’ve recently had water damage, or there are areas in your home that are unnaturally moist (such as a dark cellar), there is a higher potential for mold growth. If you’ve been considering having mold inspection and testing in San Diego performed, then Hometown Restoration is here for you.

There are several different levels of how to treat a mold problem. If you can already see visible mold growing in your home, this changes your need for the type of inspection you need. If you can smell mold but can’t see it, this changes the type of inspection you need. You would talk with one of our specialists to let them know exactly what your situation is so they can best determine how to test for mold: can you see it and smell it, only smell it, or only have a sneaking suspicion that mold spores are actively growing in your home? This way, we can proceed with the best methods of testing and inspection.

Once the mold is found and diagnosed, then we move forward with the removal and remediation process. In most cases, you don’t simply want mold removed because whatever caused it to appear in the first place will cause its appearance again. In most cases, you’ll want to move forward with mold remediation to ensure that mold doesn’t keep cropping up where you don’t want it to. Depending on the level and severity of mold growth in your home, you may need restorative services, such as replacing drywall, painting, and other repairs. We can walk you through every step of the process so that your home can be comfortable again.
