Any home in the San Francisco Bay Area is vulnerable to invasion by harmful molds. Some kinds of molds are particularly dangerous as they can become absorbed into the body of those exposed, creating or exacerbating health issues. Mold remediation is the only way to protect your family effectively from these dangers.

Health Issues from Mold Invasion

With molds growing in a home environment, a number of health problems can be caused. If an individual already has a weak immune system, he may find his troubles increase after exposure to fungi growths in the home.

Some of the problems experienced from exposure to molds:

- Throat irritation

- Skin rashes

- Headaches

- Coughing

- Chest tightness

- Nasal congestion

Although many people experience these symptoms occasionally, if they are ongoing to any degree, it is safer to have a home inspection done and find out if mold growth is contributing to the illness.

Where to Find the Mold

Unfortunately, mold can be found just about anywhere. The San Francisco Bay Area can be quite damp, and this creates an ideal environment for molds to grow. Fungi reproduce by spores and these can move about simply by air currents carrying them throughout the home. Many building materials can sustain mold growth, and for this reason many places within a home can have mold growing. First you can look to any indoor plumbing problems you have had or may currently have. These moist areas of walls, baseboards, ceilings and insulation can support abundant growth.

Cleaning up Mold in the Home

There are a number of laws regarding contaminated materials and how to properly dispose of them. You would first need to become familiar with these so you aren’t endangering anyone else, or yourself or your family, as you dispose of mold-ridden materials.

Of particular importance is inspecting the HVAC system in your home, as this can transport spores throughout the home. All debris and insulation should be removed and the system should be cleaned.

When cleaning the areas that have mold growing, you must be sure to wear the proper clothing to avoid inhaling the disrupted spores. A respirator should be worn, as well as gloves made of rubber or neoprene. Goggles will ensure no spores or disinfectant make contact with your eyes.

The best way to ensure all mold is eliminated is to find a professional who can come, inspect, find every possible location where mold could be growing in your home and get rid of it safely.
