There are things to beware of before deciding that you might need a mold inspection. Have you been feeling sick, coming down with colds, or other sinus symptoms more often than usual?
Mold allergies can sometimes even include rashes, itchy eyes, nose bleeds, headaches, breathing difficulties. People with weak immune symptoms are more susceptible to household mold growth. Toxic mold can sometimes affect an elder or child first before affecting someone who has a strong immune system.
Mold growth can be found under floors, under windows, in basements on drywall, carpets, laminate flooring in attics, and behind the walls.
GTA Environmental has technicians who are Certified Mold Inspectors (CMI) as well as Applied Microbial Remediation and Water Damage Restoration technicians. We offer several services, which aid in determining the extent of mold growth.
We determine the most efficient way to remediate the mold contamination and we make the recommendations necessary to prevent future mold growth from re-occurring after the issue has been professionally cleaned.
Sometimes people take it upon themselves to clean up the black mold that they’ve found. However, sometimes after doing this clean-up, people notice they are much sicker than they were before trying to remove the mold.
It is very dangerous to attempt mold removal without following mold remediation guidelines, which can include containment setup with negative air pressure to avoid contaminating the rest of the building. Without a containment, the mold flys through the air like a dandelion blowing in the wind. Also, after breaking walls, the black mold becomes airborne, which can cause major issues and sickness.
Household mold for the most part is not visible to the eye except in high concentrations. This is why it is very important to hire a professional mold inspector to assess the situation and to provide a full report. The plan of action will not only eliminate the mold growth, but also provide advice that can help you to ensure that the mold growth does not reoccur.
Mold killer products are not advised as the answer to mold growth. Killing the mold is not removing the mold. When mold is dead, it can still produce mycotoxins, which can still cause mold allergies and other symptoms.
